COOLER MASTER CM MEDIA 282 INTRODUCTION
Unless you've been living under a rock for the past several years, you know that digital media has exploded in popularity. Music, movies, and games can be purchased and enjoyed in minutes without ever leaving the comforts of home. Photos can be viewed and edited on a computer right after the shot is taken and TV shows can be recorded. With so much media residing on the family PC, it's more convenient to share it on the living room TV as opposed to having everyone gather around a small computer monitor. That's where Home Theater PC (HTPC) comes in. An HTPC doesn't have to be an ultra powerful machine and can be the centerpiece of a home entertainment system. Today I'll be reviewing Coolermaster's latest offering, the CM Media 282. It can stand vertically like a tower or sit horizontally to save space, making it a versatile contender in the computer case market.
