eskro Wrote:totally useless...

never look at it...

a pain to setup with XBMC where u need a 3rd party app running in background
to have the screen display stuff like the name of the movie thats playing...

since its a IR receiver too,
forget about easy button mapping here,
its a total disaster...
u dont know which button does what and there's no way to find out....

i've set XBMC to launch at windows startup but iMON Manager,
which needs to run at startup too so your screen lives,
makes XBMC minimize to the status bar...
that annoys me like crazy...

only thing good, if allows power ON from a complete off state.

I don't have a problem with mine......diplays the show name and all information I running openelec with xbmc

well it does diplays the show name and all 4me too.
but i have to use an app called XBMC-on-IMON for windows

Aside from XBMC minimizing, does the software do anything you dont like? The thermaltake is one of my top choices for my new build.

I'm wondering if anyone know where to find this silent case in U.S. If the price is right, I might use it to built a Trinity HTPC. If it is too expensive, I might go with my original plan (SilverStone SG06B). Smile

Dont know where to buy it but its going to be too expensive Wink
About 300€ in EU so min. 200$ in US.

Check out:
wesena/streacom I think its both the same, the cases with 6 and 7 in the name are looking like this but w/o the screen.

http://www.streacom.com/products/

https://www.wesena.co.uk/section.php/2/1

You can get them for about 100$ in shipping from amazon

Actually, that is not a bad deal for a very well built silent OrigenAE M10 case with display, remote and 150W passive PSU. It's not very far off from the $119 Silvertone SG06B.

Where can I find it in the U.S?

Holy cow...that is far fetch from $200 that you mentioned earlier. If I order it from the enclosed site, it is $355 with ground shipping! Shocked

I might go with my original plan then!

I haven't see any case include BD-ROM yet, but it can easily added afterward!

I like my ML02 a great deal. However I really liked the Ahanix MCE301 that someone mentioned earlier in this thread. Especially since it allows for a full size drive. For the itx footprints, I would say the Origin M10 hands down.
