I think you will have trouble finding a replacement for the PSU because of the power plug placement. If the PSU works, it looks like an amazing price for a micro ATX case with PSU. Even comes with card reader.

Yeah.. it's not for me. It would be bricked if the PSU died probably. It's for a cheapo build for a friend to surf on his tv using old parts.

I just recently purchased a couple of these cases. I did not realize the power supply issue until I opened the case.
I have contacted Xion Support and am waiting for a response as to how to replace the power supply.
If I get an answer I will let you know.

Also, the case is pretty nice. Holds a full size optical drive and one 3.5" HDD. Has two front 2.0 USB and one SD port on Front Panel.

Since it is made of steel, it has a nice "solid" feel to it. The panel is glossy and looks nice. It also comes with two "feet" to stand it up on its side so you do not have to keep it flat.

Aside from the power supply issue, I am pleased with this case.

Product Code: PP-450ROF




So YIPPIE!!! Found one!


BTW....Xon support has yet to email back [over 48 hours now, and their customer service number does not work].

Just curious, why are you replacing the PSU? Why not just buy a difference case to start with?

BTW, I think the PSU is a SFX/micro-ATX, the cable is a little hard to come by. But if you don't mind the the hole left behind, can't you replace it with a standard PSU and just run the power wire directly to the PSU from the bottom? You may need a right angle PSU cable if you need the case upright though.

It can do some of that very well, if you'll trade off for plex transcoded quality or wait for the Android version XBMC Frodo to get H/W support

Really, I was responding to post 3 of this thread. I thought it was for a different purpose, for now Android still isn't up to snuff at media streaming locally stored blu ray rips at full quality

I'm interested in getting a cheap extender for my basement so wife can watch on treadmill.

I need extender under $100.
