Not yet. I'm going to replace my TV in the next week or two, and will  
get cracking on Myth shortly after that. I still don't see anything  
that - to me - beats the Silverstone. The Silverstone isn't perfect  
but I particularly like the door for the optical drive tray - any  
case which requires me to double-sided sticky-tape a rectangle of  
aluminium to get a shiny appearance just isn't going to cut it.

With regards the questions in your other post I have seen no remarks  
on getting the volume dial & play/rewind buttons working in Linux /  
Myth. Even if those are unresponsive, this still looks like the best  
case to me. I think the display and the remote should be fine, tho' -  
I am sure others on this list are using this case.
