This slim chassis is an updated model from Antec, and built especially for MiniITX systems. It is among the smallest chassis we've ever carried here at Puget, in part due to the use of laptop-style hard drives and optical drives which help to keep the footprint to a minimum. Unlike previous ITX cases we've used, though, this model has an internal power supply (not an external power brick) which cuts down on overall bulk. It can be operated either horizontally or vertically on it's included stand. This is the case we build our Puget Echo II systems in.

Antec has updated this case with USB 3.0 ports on the front, in place of the previous 2.0 ports. The eSATA and headphone/mic ports remain unaffected.

This is a very nice case that we use in our Echo II. Several folks use these as a small form factor HTPC. It cools well, and runs relatively quiet, but not silent. If you don't intend to use an optical drive in this system, then you may want to consider the Antec ISK 110 VESA Mini ITX w/90W PSU (black), which we use in our Echo I.

I purchased the ISK 310-150 to work on a project build at home as a portable small footprint gaming system. I like it and have continued to put time and work into the system to better meet my needs as newer hardware is released. As is, the chassis does have limitations in terms of what hardware can be put inside the ISK 310-150, but can be utilized in a variety of ways.

So just a note here for anybody interested in this. The optical drive bay for this uses an internal latch on the upper right corner (presuming you have it sitting flat, so that the power button is on the lower right). You just press in firmly there and let the door fall flat. Once it's open, you can access the optical drive itself.
