Conclusion

General   + -
The Xigmatek Nebula is a mini cube case designed for those who are looking for an elegant and classic design. Contrary to what you might think, the Nebula is not an inaccessible case or difficult to assemble because of its small size. Internal as well as external build quality is good as well as the external steel since all the parts are solid and heavy. The interior space is adequate and you will be able to use one standard HDDs and one 2.5-inch SSD/HDD.   - Design

Manufacturing quality / Ergonomics   + -

The Xigmatek Nebula is made of black SECC steel and black ABS plastic, internally as well as externally. The sidepanels are pretty heavy despite their small size, and we couldn't find any sharp edges or bad finish. The mounting process was easy and very simple, we have not found anything to report and, paradoxically, we had more assembly problems with a few other ATX cases. Despite the small size of the case, it offers space for one 3.5" HDD and one 2.5" HDDs/SSDs. In addition, there is enough space for a small tower cooler and a standard ATX PSU.

Design / Layout   + -
The design is clean and simple and the Xigmatek Nebula leaves a timeless and classy impression. There is even enough space on the inside, which is nothing that's self-evident with great looking products. Regarding the cooling, there is no much to say since there is only one slot for a 120mm fan included in the bundle. Since this case is mostly designed for an HTPC/Media Server, we would have liked to see a 5.25" slot or a place for a slot-in optical drive.
Unlike the C Nebula, which we've already reviewed, this version freatures a grey base plate, that doesn't just look nice, but also adds to better airflow.

Recommendation   + -
If you are looking for a small PC case with a very clean and elegant design and, at the same time, a good quality, then Xigmatek Nebula is definitely worth considering. Nebula could be a very good solution for HTPC or a media server. At Caseking, the Nebula is listed at 69 euro.   - Office
