Since I've been reviewing products, I've come across a few Home Theater PC cases. It seems many companies now make them, but now a few specialize in them. Today for review I have an HTPC case from a company called NMedia, NMedia is one of those companies that specialize in making a better HTPC case. I have been looking for the perfect HTPC case for myself and I think I may have found it, or at least the perfect one at the moment, as technology is always evolving to just get better. For now, let's check this one out...
First here is a bit about NMedia:
We Don't Follow the Trend, We Create It!
The Digital Revolution transformed the way we relate to media and entertainment; with the advent of broadband Internet, DVD burners, digital TV, MP3 players, DV Cams and digital Camera, consumers have more control over what they watch and listen to than ever before - creating a surging demand for efficient, innovative, convenient means to access audio and visual media. Microsoft Window XP MCE appears to be one of the best solutions to transform a home PC into a home entertainment media gateway.
Northern California, Castro Valley-based NMEDIA SYSTEM, INC. was founded in 2004. The company's vision is to create future home entertainment PC systems that are optimal for today's consumer electronic gear such as Plasmas TV, LCD TV, HDTV and Home Theater Projectors.
