Moneual MonCaso 972S Home Theater PC Case
August 11, 2008

Moneaul may not be a household name, but they have been in the business of producing high quality components intended to better equip your PC to serve as a home entertainment media center since 2005. While the product to be reviewed was manufactured by Moneaul, it comes to us from a company that may be more familiar to readers of Bigbruin.com. Quiet PC USA stocks quiet computer parts designed to "let you hear yourself think", and they have been sponsoring reviews of such products at Bigbruin.com for over five years now.


The promotional image above shows an overview of the case to be covered in this review. The appearance is high-end and sophisticated, and even though I have seen my fair share of HTPC cases, the first impression this one makes is definitely convincing as an authentic home theater component. Before taking a closer look at the sample provided for review, let's take a look at some published data on the Moneual MonCaso 972 series of home theater PC cases, as taken from the Quiet PC USA website.

Of the many interesting items listed above, most people might agree that the coolest are the integrated seven inch touchscreen and the multimedia remote control. The case is available in two colors, listed as black and silver on the Quiet PC USA website, and as black and platinum on the Moneual website. That said, the sample provided for review is the Moneual MonCaso 972S case, and the "S" suffix indicates that it is silver.
