Over the years of looking at SilverStone products we have seen a wide variety of cases and with all of them they've sported top-notch construction, excellent designs with useful features, and with each new model their products only seem to get better. Two of the SilverStone cases we looked at recently were the Temjin TJ09 and the Sugo SG03 SFF. The SilverStone TJ09 chassis was the best ATX case we'd seen all of last year and we are looking forward to seeing if this year's Temjin TJ10 can continue in that success. Meanwhile, the Sugo SG03 is what we had called the "SG01 on steroids and it's a sexy yet functional micro ATX chassis", which remains one of the best micro ATX cases to date. Anyways, enough with the past. Today we managed to get our hands on SilverStone's latest micro ATX product, which is the Milo ML02. The SilverStone Milo ML02 is the successor to the Milo ML01 that we looked at this past September. The Milo ML01 was a great package, but the ML02 is rebuilt almost from the ground up and extends support for DTX and ITX motherboards. Continue on as we look at this well-designed MoDT (Mobile on Desktop) chassis with an extremely slim profile, fanless power supply, and integrated LCD panel.

Features:

· Designed for MoDT (mobile on desktop) systems
· Ultra-slim profile at 82mm tall
· Sturdy steel chassis suitable for silent operation
· Multilanguage LCD and remote control included (ML02MX only)
· Fanless PSU included
· Supports MoDT Micro ATX, Mini-ITX, and DTX motherboards
· 1 x Slim Optical Drive Bay
· 1 x 3.5" or 2.5" HDD
· 4 x 50mm fan Slots
· 1 x Expansion Slot
· SilverStone 120W Fanless PSU
· 397 x 82 x 375mm; 4kg Weight

With some cases we've reviewed in the past the packaging has been less than stellar. An ATX chassis that weighs several kilograms combined with poor product packaging and a courier that enjoys throwing things around can spell disaster for a computer case as we have seen in the past. Fortunately, however, none of these damaged cases have been from SilverStone Technology thanks to their reliable packaging. The Milo ML02 was no different from past SilverStone products and had arrived in a rugged cardboard box with the case being seated in an enclosure composed of cardboard and Styrofoam.

SilverStone currently offers the Milo ML02 in two models: the SST-ML02B-R and SST-ML02B-MXR, with the latter model supporting an LCD panel with IR remote control support. The iMON LCD display is built into the front of the Milo ML02, supports multiple languages, and is accompanied by a remote control that is more than suitable for basic HTPC and media usage. The SilverStone SST-ML02B-MXR was the model SilverStone had sent out and in addition to the case was the ML02/ML02MX manual, Windows CD with the LCD / VFD / IR driver, IR remote control, slim drive bay IDE adapter, PCI riser card, PCI Express riser card, PCI Express expansion card, power supply, and the needed mounting hardware. The riser/expansion cards are used to rotate any single PCI/PCI Express expansion card so that it is positioned parallel with the motherboard and can be installed into the ML02.
