Cooler Master CM Media 280/281 HTPC Case Review - FrostyTech.com Cooler Master CM Media 280/281 HTPC Case Review
Tue Jun 12, 2007 | 5:18P| PermaLink
"As the size of a HTPC shrinks, so do the performance and upgrade options. You're generally stuck with Micro-ATX or the like for motherboards which offer fewer features than their full-size cousins. Things like riser cards and slim CD/DVD drives add to the cost and you're lucky if you get two hard drive bays and a single 5 1/4" bay. Few slim HTPC's support a full size power supply and don't even think about high-end video cards and cooling. With the CM Media 280 and 281 you can build a HTPC with all the features of a tower case; mostly because it is a tower case. Sorta. The new CM Media can be configured in either desktop or tower style and while it's not what I consider a "full" tower, it does offer a great deal more options as to what kind of gear you can toss into it and how much. And thanks to Cooler Master's impeccable design sense, it will still look good on your HiFi Rack."
