Home theater setups still pretty popular in some circles, especially with the availability of Blu-ray components and smaller form factor motherboards supporting full-size processors. NMediaPC has been in the HTPC game for some time now, and their new 1080P aims at giving users a micro ATX solution that won't be detectable as a PC on most entertainment centers. It's sleek, low-profile design (and $59 price tag) should draw a crowd at many online etailers.

NMedia created an acrylic sliding door that hides a memory card reader, DVD or Blu-ray optical drive, and even has room for an optional LCD display. I was a bit disappointed that the LCD display didn't come standard with this unit, but at least users can choose what type of character display they want and not be pigeon-holed into using the one provided by the manufacturer. The only two features outside of the sliding door are the aluminum and acrylic power and reset buttons.

The interior of the 1080P is pretty spacious and includes two 80mm fans that should provide good air crossflow over the motherboard and other components. This case can also handle three 3.5" hard drives and a full ATX power supply.
