PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH
This case will look good amongst other home theater components, although its size will require a fairly large area to sit in. The touch screen is a large 7” and is the prominent feature here on the front. There's plenty of other buttons and ports, but Moneual did a great job of maintaining a clean, uncluttered look.
To the right of the touch screen are two rows of navigation buttons and a large volume button. That's not all though - flipping open a door below the buttons reveals a card reader. I'm very happy to see this feature included since so many devices use flash memory cards these days.
To the left of the touch screen is a power button and IR receiver. Again we have a flip down door that exposes audio ports, a 1394 port, and a USB 2.0 port.
Two vented areas are located on the top, one above the processor and the other above the video card area. The case is well ventilated on all sides as we'll see, but there are not many fans to speak of.
Each side has two large circular vents. On the inside, there are removable mesh filters to help prevent dust from getting inside the case. Fans can be installed here if you wish, although none are included.
