I would like to thank Viako for supplying the review sample.
Viako may not be a big name in the EU or US, but apparently the brand is quite popular in Asia. I myself have never heard of it before this review, so I was quite eager to get my hands on their product. Unlike most case manufacturers, Viako does not only offer ITX cases in different sizes and colors, but also offers them as a barebone or full system. Their Fusion based system which we have on the test bench today ships with a mainboard from Gaia along with a b/g/n wireless card using dual antennas.
The case is called ML-55, which stands for "Mini Letter" and 55 mm in height. Due to the compact dimension the chassis does not have an optical drive slot. For those who want an even thinner case, the ML-40 would be the best choice, while the ML-80 can also hold a slimeline optical drive.

Some of the specifications above are based on the mainboard used as part of the offered barebone system. Due to the fact, that it is a traditional ITX board, the specifications may be different if Viako decides to switch models or manufacturers.
The MI-E350 in this review is from Giada. The specification can be found here.
