Summary: Chenbro's tech support page is a web form that pulls double duty as a sales contact e-mail form. There are no numbers to call, no options specifically for repairs or RMAs, and no fields to gather any information about the products you own. I am regretting this purchase greatly.
Pros: Smallest hot-swap mini-ITX case I've ever seen, perfectly designed for a NAS or small file server.
Cons: No documentation included with case. Online documentation is a generic manual with sections not applicable or even completely incorrect for the case. Advertised accessories are impossible to find. SATA cables too short to reach ports. Optical drive bracket blocks power cables. The power brick is ...
Summary: I purchased an ATOM ITX mb w/4 sata for this case. An IDE to SATA converter might help my shortage of connections over 4 HDDs. Still, I have 1 more for a slim DVD-RW. THINK MORE before buying this pricy case.
Pros: a small foot print & a good design easy to open inside separated compartment.
Cons: Flash card reader is an optional, not included! Remote control adapter is an optional, too. It is almost impossible find those optional parts. Lots of LEDs. Check your mb for connections. No PCI slots.
Summary: This case has an external power supply. There is a different version (not sold by newegg at this time) that has an internal PSU. One other observation... this unit does not come with the SD card reader or other accessories, apparently those are sold seperately.
Pros: Very unique. Perfect for my Windows Home Server needs. ITX form factor is all I wanted / needed. It's small and sexy, but at the same time, the geek factor is high too. PSU seems pretty efficient. Setup was easy, although I didn't mess with the slim drive or SD slot, which I think would be more c...
Cons: If you run with both included case fans (70mm) running at full tilt, then it is pretty loud. But then, it is a server chassis, so noise doesn't seem to have been a big goal. Because I'm running a low power CPU/mobo, I was able to easily unplug one fan and move the remaining one to the speed contr...
Pros: I love this case. I built a beautiful HTPC running Ubuntu and XBMC. Got this case mainly for the 4 hot-swappable drive-bays and it didn't disappoint. The case is well constructed, feels solid and has good features in terms of hiding some of the underpinnings that I frankly don't care about. Every...
Cons: I can't find the optional IR receiver anywhere! I want one!
Summary: I had installed a zotac Mini-DTX, a slim-drive and 2.5" HDD for OS, all withing a matter of 2 hours. The front panel removal can be tricky as mentioned by previous posters. I took extra-care to dis-lodge the inner clips, which is a must if you want the panel clips intact. So far I love it.
Pros: Small, but VERY well structured enclosure. Easy to dismantle and assemble. Mini-ITX and Mini-DTX boards. And surprisingly quiet, even with 2 fans!
Cons: Hmm.. Oh well.. Maybe the fans are not "silent". :-D
Summary: I bought this case for a Windows Home Server build. Overall I'm very happy with the results. This is a nice looking case that doesn't take up much space. Case comes with 2 pretty loud 70mm fans.
Pros: Attractive Small footprint Hot-Swap bays (But do you need them?) Screwless optical drive mounting bracket
Cons: Expensive Stock fans are very loud TIGHT space Included riser adapter is PCI. If you need to install a card note that the cable routing in the case will make for an extremely tight install. The four drive SATA cables along with 24 pin power cable will be pressing against it. Case supports 4 hot s...
