Pros: It can fit just about anywhere, provides plenty of cooling options, has dust/debris filters in front of the side intake fans, and the color scheme looks nice.
Cons: The cable management is literally nonexistent. You will ultimately have to route all of your cables into the front-left corner in front of the PSU, and no matter how many cables you try to use in this thing, it will always look like a hot mess. I wish that I could have used a bigger case, but I was short on options with my available desk space. This was my first build, and at the same time, it was my hardest build, solely for this reason.

from completed build LGA 1155 budget HTPC
For a HTPC case this one is massive. I had more than enough space to work with. I wish they would have used some of the extra space for any type of possible cable management. I mean there is literally nothing to work with in this case so I had to create my own little part to hide the mess of cables I knew would exist. Only other complaint would be when I removed some of the screws a couple times the case threading started to get striped which shouldn't happen...
There are plenty of great things about this case though. I already mentioned the size.. it fits ATX Motherboards/Power Supplies and has plenty of room for expansion . There are plenty of dust filters which every case should have but a lot don't. It's also just a good looking HTPC case with great airflow.

This is basically a horizontal PC and perfect for a home theater set up. Build quality is good! It has dust filters for all the side fan placements. The outer case paint finish has texture as if the paint sprayer was "spitting". The inside paint seems smoother than the outside. Be warned for this case is a fingerprint magnet. If you are using the Blu-ray/DVD player, the bracket for it also holds the Hard drive underneath, and it may cause problems with certain CPU coolers. Also the cable management is just about nonexistent. The rear feet are spherical rubber while the front is more a stylish cylinder. But those rear feet are perfect for sliding the unit into the shelves.

Very good case for someone wanting to build a real PC that can fit on a shelf and function as a HTPC. It is a fairly tight fit and cable management is non-existant, but the case does everything that I need it to and looks damn good doing it. I like that I can install an optical drive without sacrificing too much space.

Its a great HTPC case, lots of room to work with, looks nice. However, the paint is kind of bubbly and it feels weird.

from completed build Old Compy Frankenstram-Box
Silverstone has made a gorgeous HTPC case that is smartly designed and easy to work in, even when building with significant restraints like a 6 year old system. I was able to fit a full size ATX motherboard with a full sized 3rd party GPU (MSI GTX 970 Twin Frozr model) with no problems. The maximum clearance for GPUs is listed as 5.25", and the GTX 970 is listed at 5.5". I suspect the GPU specs include the actual PCIe connector, explaining why it still fits perfectly. If I could level a complaint against this case, it's that I only had one option for where to place a 120mm radiator (front left, just behind the logo). There is a metal spacer on the inside to provide room for the case connection cords and presumably support of some kind that blocks installation of the radiator horizontally (which would allow the plumbing to pass around the GPU back and to the CPU with room to spare). As a result I had to mount the radiator vertically, and pass the plumbing over the top of the GPU. The radiator is either too tall by 1mm or the plumbing over top of the already tight fit on the GPU is slightly too much, resulting in the top of the case not quite sitting flush when installed. This is hardly a problem in my case, as I knew I was pushing the tolerance allowed and I have pieces I would describe as not ideal. I would definitely save this case for a future HTPC build if I was going to start fresh on another server box!

should've heeded the reviews...this case is...awful. Bubbled paint, minimal workspace, no room for cable management, and it's MUCH larger than I thought it'd be.

It´s a very compact case with a lot of mounting options. you just be careful if you use a GPU - because a GPU like mine Palit Super Jet Stream GTX1080 is maybe too large for the case.
