Hi

Couldn't see any other threads about this; might be ideal for some if the price is right (quoted at €249) - perfect for kitchen/bedroom/other room using VESA mounts?

Comes with eSata, memory card reader, WiFi, front USB!

PDF Brochure

(note the above PDF says it's "Extremely Silent" presumably quieter than the "Silent" ASRock I have? :rotfl:)

Review here:

techPowerUp :: Zotac MAG ION Nettop Review :: Page 1 / 6

I'm too impatient and would have bought the ASRock anyway but I may take a punt on this one when it arrives..

There seems to be a lot of competition in this Nettop marketspace now. I went for the Asrock Ion 330 due to it having Bluray. I like the fact you can attach this and the Acer to the back of a HDTV.

Hi,
If you are looking for a nettop to mount to the back of a LCD moniter. I had found this seller on ebay who specialize in this casing. If some user find this is spam let me know and I will delete this post. Thx.

Well, it IS spamming if you joined the forum just to link to that. Are you the seller? Nice looking case, but this site is heavily UK based. Are you planning on hanging around?

It's a nice looking case though, and hand made! Not sure I would use one, I like aluminium too much, but a jet black opaque option would be nice. The only fault with acrylic is one over-tightened screw and you get ugly cracks. Not a design flaw, but a user fault I guess, lol!

Giving benefit of the doubt for now but both your posts since registering have been about one company on eBay. Removed links on both posts but will leave posts in place.

Hey, no problem I am new to this forum but I will be making contribution.

Well, actually the casing is made by a buddy of mine, and he has been asking me to help him promote it that is why I had been spamming the forum like you guys said. But if you dont like it , I will delete my post and move on. Nothing to get upset about mate. Besides, I just wanted to let you guys know what is out in the market and you use this casing in your next build.

While posting about a your build is ok..even links to pictures, what isn't ok is when they turn in to self promotion, advertising or as you admit to spamming the links for a mate, being new to the forum does not excuse you from the forum rules, can I suggest you read the forum rules before posting again.
