4 out of 5 eggsGreat for the price

Pros: I like the look of this case. It blends in real well with the rest of my home theatre set-up. A lot of people complained about the textured front but I rather like it.
The case is small, as it should be for a HTPC case, and the design manages to squeeze in plenty of HDDs.
I noticed someone else complained that the HDD bracket above the front panel cables gets in the way, but the bracket is specifically designed as a pseudo-cable management option. The front panel cables get routed right through the thing and are held in place below your HDD.

Cons: While I just defended the use of the bracket to route the front panel cables, their placement is still rather cumbersome. I liked the bracket being used to manage them, but dislike their placement.

The worst thing about this case, in my opinion, is the supplied cable to go from the front panel USB 3.0 ports to the motherboard is longer than the diagonal length of the case itself, even though the ports are in the middle-front of the case and the motherboard mounts directly behind it. I have more than a foot and a half of spare cable length that is really hard to manage in a tiny HTPC case. Now I understand that the length needed varies based on the port placement on the motherboard you use, but this is way overkill. To make it worse, on my particular motherboard the ports could not have possibly been closer to the front panel. This may not be the case for you, but I'm certain you will still have way more cable length than you could possible use.

Other Thoughts: For some reason I could not use their "belt style" cable ties. But I had a bag of my own that I used instead. Just give me simple "zip ties" not these fancy belt tie things.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Good overall look to blend in with A/V equipment
Space to mount 3 Hard drives and an optical(see cons also)
Fits mATX board and stock intel 775/1150/1156/1155 cooler
Fits standard PSU
Filter for PSU vent and for above CPU

Cons: Even though this case is large as HTPC cases go you will want to plan out devices very carefully. If the PSU or the Optical drive aren't as small as you can get one will not fit with the other. Cable mounting is tough as would be servicing anything in it after its together due to size. Front texture is a little odd with a regular black optical drive in the case.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Solid build & very sleek, sexy looking.
Well ventilated. Even comes with a magnetized dust filter for the top air vent. It's easily removed for cleaning.

Cons: VERY tight on space. (All the cables are bunched on top of the PCI slots of the motherboard.)
Top dust filter is in the way if you want your TV/Monitor sitting on top of it.

Other Thoughts: If you put a microATX board in it, you have 0 room for error. The power supply mounts right behind the CD/DVD drive so there's just enough room for the cables. Wire everything before securing it.

4 out of 5 eggsDONT get regular PSU

Pros: Very Nice looking case, just like a stereo component, pretty sold as well, seems to have a lot of vents too so I don't think my build will be choking on heat. what sold me was the looks, see below for details on the do's and don't with this particular case.

Cons: If you plan on installing a PSU and a bluray/dvd drive don't bother buying a full size PSU, get a micro PSU, the space between the Drive and PSU dosent exsist AT ALL , your normally PSU and DVD drive are both almost 6 inches each, even a modular PSU is almost impossible, so if you DO plan on installing a dvd/bluray know that they both wont fit in the space given, if no drive then your fine to use any PSU you want.

Other Thoughts: I ended up going back and buying a different PSU, FSP Group FSP400-60GHS(85)-R 400W Micro ATX12V as I wanted a bluray drive, I haven't gotten it yet but its 2 inches shorter, which will give me plenty of room for cable management for the optical drive

5 out of 5 eggsYou can fill this.

Pros: In the specifications of this case I noticed how many hard drives it fits. I didn't see how but looking at the manual they manage to hide a hard drive in every extra nook. A clever set of brackets gives you you all of these hard drives.

Cons: None so far

5 out of 5 eggsIt's nice

Pros: This case is perfect for what I needed, which was a HTCP case that would not be an eye sore. There is plenty of ventilation for the CPU and GPU.

Cons: It's not free.

5 out of 5 eggsGood product but scratches easily

Pros: Good cooling and CPU fan clearance for a case this size. Fits fully size PSU that either big bottom fan or smaller end fan. Fits full sized disc drive as well. Multiple disk drive or SSD mounting options. Lots of vents, even PCI slot covers have vents.

Cons: scratches easily. WAY too easily.

Other Thoughts: Recommended. Just don't put a Blu-Ray player or A/V Receiver on top of it - always keep this on top.

5 out of 5 eggsWorth ever Cent

Pros: Extremely nice looking. I am running this as my HTPC. Have a SSD for the OS, Blue-Ray Play/Burner, and 2x 4TB HDD's all easily fit in the case. Make sure you have 90 degree SATA cables if you are using an optical drive.

Cons: Wish it had filters for the side vents other than that none.

4 out of 5 eggsNice case

Pros: Clean lines allows this to look just like another audio component on the rack.

Cons: Yes, it's a bit tight in there, but with some planning and thought everything will fit well enough. As someone has said the textured front is a little strange. I could have done without that since the optical drive doesn't match it.

Other Thoughts: Over all it's a well made, and fairly easy to work with case.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you very much for purchasing a SilverStone and for the feedbacks. If you like the layout of ML03 but want a different front panel design with brushed aluminum door that covers the optical drive, you can take a look at the ML04 as well:

5 out of 5 eggsGood case

Pros: Low Profile, small footprint.
Same width as network racks
Look good, price is right.
You can actually fit 2 3.5 inch, 1 2.5 inch drives and an optical drive all at the same time.

Cons: Tight assembly takes some planning. Some motherboards don't play well with connector locations. Power supply depth is a major concern.

Other Thoughts: I have 4 of these cases in use right now.

One has 2x4tb drives a 128gb OS drive and an Antec SATA hot swap tray - used as an HTPC and media server w/ i5-760 and AMD HD6670.

One has an i7-4770, Intel quad GBe NIC, 2 Velociraptor 500gb drives, a C300 128gb boot drive and a WD320BEKTdrive.

One has an i7-3770 and a couple drives running Windows Server 2008 and Exchange 2013.

They are all silent and stay cool.

As mentioned above, they are the same width as regular rack mount gear, so I have a couple of them sitting in a network rack with the other network gear.
