Wow, I want one. :)

Thats the nicest HTPC I've seen.

Yeah I was looking at that on the QuietPC site a while ago, looks really nice, I'm still not really sure why you would use a PC instead of some really high quality hi-fi equipment though. I know you can record and stuff onto your HD but surely a good piece of kit would be so much better quality.

Id have gone for a gig of PC3200LL, it would have been cheaper and you wouldnt have had a performance hit.

I know this a tech site and everything, but I have to agree with Veles - why pay £1200 for a Media PC when you can buy a twin tuner PVR for a couple of hundred quid?

Because it can do so much more than a pvr can.

Oh and if you wanted to kit your own one out for less you can buy just the cases from Quietpc they even do one that takes full size pci slots.

Nice article, made me a bit more interested in HTPC's for sure!

One thing though, I'm sure I'm not the only one who noticed:
Why'o'why are there fingerprints all over the case in almost every picture the panels are closed? and still I didn't see anything mentioned about it...is it something that should be obvious or? *trying desperately not to swear* The only reason I can figure out for why you didn't clean the case before taking the pictures is that there must have been some sort of a hurrious situation.

Other than that, an interesting read once again, thanks!

I wonder why it is, but this is the n'th time I've written something that atleast to me seems important and ... no response...wy'o'wy! =]

Fantastic review, I would say Blackgold are refered to as one of the top cards tho, supposedly my nebula just as good as the blackgolds!

Ok Ok! you're forgiven! =]

Just made me wonder that I suppose that sort of a finish is ...touchy for fingerprints?

Personally, I don't like it. It looks generic - like all other 'comercial' HTPC cases I've seen. I'm still waiting for "the one" to rule them all...
