Reasonably thought out. Nice understated appearance. Allows fairly large GPUs to be installed. Can sit vertically or horizontally without issue, even in a TV stand if there's some airflow. Decent isolation between GPU and CPU thermal zones. You can fit a small AIO CPU cooler with a small mod. Although I didn't pursue a water cooled solution, this would likely limit you to a max. GPU length of about 140 ~ 150mm, which puts you in the GTX 1050 Ti class card as of this writing (Mar 2019)... probably not worth it.
You must disassemble the case to clean air filters. One star removed. Other "weaknesses" are those associated with the nature of all SFF cases.
This 10.2 liter case is a bit bigger than an old Xbox but you can pack some respectable hardware. Coupled with the right cooling solutions (I suggest the low profile Noctua cooler for the CPU and a couple of high static pressure fans under the GPU to provide positive case pressure) you can build a gaming rig for the living room or for portability. I am running an Intel i5-9400F processor and a GTX 1060 GPU with no problems with thermals or noise. With an upgraded power supply (600W), you could probably use a more powerful GPU. The limiting factor with this case is probably CPU cooling. Use a 65W processor and don't expect overclocking.
