On the 22nd of December I made a comment on my blog about receiving a new piece of hardware, but I mentioned that I wasn&rsquo;t sure if I was allowed to talk about it yet - because the hardware wasn&rsquo;t released yet and not up on the OEMs Web site for sale. Obviously now that this story has gone public, I can, so here&rsquo;s the story.&quot;</em> <br /><br />This isn't exactly on-topic for Zune Thoughts, but I felt that the issue was important enough (since it involves my personal integrity) that I should step up and make sure everyone knows the history of this issue and my stance on it. It's a very long post (I started working on it yesterday), but I think it covers everything about this issue. Comments here (or there) are welcome.

Oh good grief, this has just blown way out of proportion.

Anyway, I'm sorry to hear about your case problem. My HTPC uses the X15 case, seen here (http://www.origenae.com/en/product_x15e.htm), which is essential the same case as yours, but with the added 7" touch LCD. (My unit is a home grown unit, rather than pre built.) I absolutly LOVE this case. The feel of the case just screams high quality, and I've never had an issue with it. I don't mind the size so much, because it fits nice in with the rest of my AV equipment.
