That is a nice case. I looked it up and found I like the S10V model better for size and expansion possibilities. $800NZ is somewhat expensive for a case though

This is a great post, I am in the process of designing my first htpc and I am stuck trying to find the right case. At first I wanted to do a cube. I stated with some simple inexpensive cubes then worked my way to the Sugo SG05B from SilverStone. Although not astetically pleasing it was open so I felt that would help with heat. But I changed my mind, this doesn't match any of my other AV components.
I'm not going to use an optical drive so I want a smooth front with just a subtle LED's and a power button. I love the Wesena cases but a lot of those aren't going to be available until April (definitely can't wait that long!). I am going to use a m-itx board but want a case that will hold a m-atx board. I want the extra space to hopefully future proof the case. And it should be black.
SG05B (functional but not good looking)
Wesena eHDD (this look is perfect)
SilverStone LC04 (can't find this in black)
SilverStone LC19 (I like it but an nervous about the size)
Wesena E4 (Love this case but it's not available till April)
Anyone know of cases that are similar to the SilverStone or Wesena cases?

SILVERSTONE Sugo Series SG06 ... comes with a 300w power supply... I like that its solid in the front and it's small. This may be my next project.
