nMEDIAPC HTPC 500SA ATX Media Center PC Case
June 06, 2007

Computers serve many purposes in everyday life. From online banking to playing games, to using a computer in a home theater setup; computers are seemingly taking over our lives. Integrating a computer into your home theater is a great idea with the ever growing digital music and video collections, and a lot of computer manufacturers are jumping on this HTPC (home theater personal computer) bandwagon. There are many custom PC stores and even large integrators such as HP that are now offering pre-built HTPCs.


For the enthusiasts who like to build their own customized computers, there are many cases made specifically for home theater use. One choice of manufacturers is nMEDIAPC, who got there start creating components for home entertainment PC systems in 2004. From their growing product line up, nMEDIAPC selected one of their newest HTPC cases for review at Bigbruin.com, the HTPC 500SA ATX Media Center PC Case. Available in either black and silver (we will be taking a look at the silver model), each case includes three low noise cooling fans and a VFD (vacuum fluorescent display) to complement the home theater appeal of the design.
