Really? I mean, it's no better than the Prodigy, and not much smaller (bigger, really, if you don't count the Prodigy's handles). I guess they can both be awesome... but, it's not really doing anything new and awesome.

I like that Corsair keeps venturing into SFF... I don't like that all of their efforts are always biggie-sized. I'd like a mATX case that's just slightly bigger than the SST-PS07W in all 3 dimensions with a modern feature set. The 350D is a good effort but she's bigger than many mid-ATX cases.

Their overall design language has been pretty solid, though.

The Proidgy is larger in size, that is due to the feet and handles. 250D is a smaller case overall. You lose the HDD cage to make room for a video card in the prodigy. It is not a bad case, just dont not like the style and layout.
Not every case will suit people, the 250D is a good case. Hopefully will get my hands on it early enough for a build.

Prodigy (WxHxD) 250 x 404 x 359mm
250D (WxHxD) 277 x 290 x 351mm

...which of course only adds further support for your point.

For me, I would choose one of these 3 going ITX and I already own the SG10 which is a great case in its own right for mATX or ITX. The SG10 doesn't allow you to easily water cool unless you start doing some crazy mods if your going to place both GPU and CPU under water. I have an HX750 which is cramped in this case, can't properly close the side panel. While the 250D is a bit of a larger size case for ITX, it seems to allow quite a bit of flexibility for water cooling, if you want to add a standard DVD/BD drive, and you can use a standard size PSU up to 200mm.

My only complaint so far from what we have seen with the 250D is that I wish it was a few inches shorter in height like what the Node 304 accomplishes. For the living room, I hate those front feet but if this is anywhere near the quality of the 350D (which I also owned) it should be a nice case.

Node 304: 250mm (W) x 210mm (H) x 374mm (D)
250D: 277mm (W) x 290mm (H) x 351mm (D)
SG09/10: 295 mm (W) x 222 mm (H) x 354 mm (D)

Which they couldn't do while keeping the PSU under the motherboard.

Its nice, but there are already a lot of options for larger ITX cases that are well designed. Trying to find a smaller one that is well designed has been the trouble. I don't care for the horizontally mounted motherboards. It makes the footprint too large.

Will this case be able to fit the Swiftech H220 rad? I know the specs list up to 240mm rads, but with the H220 it has a bit extra from the built-in res sticking out.

I like the ideas and hardware compatibility. Too bad it's so ugly. Guess it's Node 304 time.
