OrigenAE X15e HTPC ATX Case

Conclusion

Conclusion

With a price tag of around £499.95 at SpecialTech I was expecting something special from OrigenAE, and I'm pleased to say that is exactly what I got. The X15e is the Bentley of the HTPC enclosure world, and no other case I've ever seen or reviewed comes close to its attention to detail and craftsmanship.

OrigenAE have produced a case that fits in perfectly with even the most high-end of AV equipment, and wouldn't look out of place in a superstar's living room.

Functionality wise, the touchscreen display is amazing, making navigating around WindowsMCE a breeze. This coupled with the included remote controls, means that watching your favourite Video's or TV shows requires no extra effort than your pre-HTPC days.

Pro's
+ Amazing brushed Aluminium finish
+ Impeccable build quality
+ Noise dampening features
+ High quality 7" LCD touchscreen display
+ Functional remote controls.
+ Quiet cooling system
+ Spacious
+ Full ATX compatibility

Con's
- Extremely high price tag
- No software included

Thats what makes it unique. If a porsche was the same price as a fiesta, for example, then it would get the same reputation.Quote

I don't think so.

But yeah the case is very nice

If you had a helluva lot of money you'd buy it but not otherwise I don't thinkQuote

I think we'll just put it down to the fact that Porsche's cost a lot more to build and are made in smaller quantities which is why they are more expensive.

As the saying goes: "You get what you pay for".Quote
