When it comes to having an HTPC, looks of the enclosure can be a deal-breaker to many. After all, one of the primary goals of this type of system is to have it sitting out with next to that big screen LCD television. An ugly case just won't cut it, so the Duet took a sleek approach and offers their enclosure with a smooth silver exterior. The optical bays are hidden away as are the front I/O ports so this box won't be an eyesore sitting out in the open. While the brand moniker on the front indicates it is meant to sit flat as pictured above, the case can easily be turned onto the side and stand next to an entertainment center. The venting of the enclosure will allow for ample airflow for the internal components regardless of the direction you orient the case.
Taking a closer look behind the closed doors shows space for two optical devices and a floppy drive. The button tucked away in the lower right corner is the reset button so it shouldn't cause any problems with accidental reboots.
The other side of the case hides away the front I'O ports. These are pretty generic and should handle most of your needs for flexibility. The button right above this door is the main power button and is easily accessible without having to open trays and doors.
Moving to the back of the enclosure shows us that even for an HTPC enclosure, there is a lot of room to work with back here. Moving the fan to the front of the case clears up a lot of room in this area. This helps greatly in keeping the footprint to the desired small size.
