    We're certainly looking forward to getting our hands on final production units, but we can't help feel as though ATX is yesterday's news. Here's hoping there's a new Micro- or Mini-ITX Grandia in the pipeline, too.
    It would be good if they did ITX versions too but i like the fact they still concentrate on ATX as when i used to have a HTPC it used to get the hand me downs that i had finished using in my or my gf's computer and it was nice that they would fit no problems so didnt go to waste.

    Unlike the GD07, which offered no less than 11 drive bays, the GD10 trims right down to a two-section drive cage.
    I'm not sure about their choice to go from 11 drive bays to 2/3. Surely there was a more happy middle ground to be found!

    I do like the look of the GD07 but would find it hard to justify the upgrade over my LC20 with "modified" drive cage (for extra long gfx cards)

    Congratulations after many years of research they have solved the design of an HTPC case by simple taking a normal case and laying it horizontal.

    I know I am exaggerating but really this are dreadful designs. There is no thought as to what an HTPC is used for and what power it really needs. An HTPC only really needs to be a mini-itx.

    Not at all, I have an LC-17 chosen specifically cause it can take older and cheaper full size components.

    i have an LC16m, and these are uninspiring to say the least, but at least filtered 120mm intakes are good.
