Summary: At 4U, this case may be a bit larger then you might need, but it will accomodate just about any future hardware combination you might have.
Pros: Great case. Allot of small details that you would expect to be overlooked at this price point are thoughtfully covered. Plenty of options for customization, plenty of fan options (I assumed the stock fans would be noisy and bought a few silenx versions). Useful information is actually etched onto...
Cons: No real defect in this case. About the only improvement I would make to it is if the case was about 1 or 2 inches deeper. I know it's intended to be shallow, and that there is a MUCH deeper version available, but if this one were just an inch deeper then there would be room to have the internal 3...
Summary: It is a short case, so you will have to make sure any multiple hot-swap bays will fit.
Pros: I have two of these cases; one is a hyper-v server, the other ESXi. Solid construction, good airflow, lots of space for drives. This is my favorite rack-mount case for builds. I find myself wishing my other cases were as easy to work with as this one.
Cons: I do wish it came with the second drive cage, or at least it was easier to find the secondary cage.
Summary: I love this chassis, but I have to echo two of the complaints found in other reviews here. First, the blue power LED is way too bright and needs to be muted. Second, the drive bay slots, if unpopulated, are highly visible through the front grill because they are not painted with a matte black...
Summary: Lots of room and easy access to everything. Had to replace the 120mm fan that came with it as it was too noisy for my application. the fan is fine if you were putting it in a noisy environement but I needed it to be quiet as possible.
Summary: Only thing that would make this better is if the sides were painted black. But looks good and is really good build quality. Love that it's shorter (depth) than the Rosewill case I bought, but obviously that could be a problem depending on what your needs are.
Summary: Unbeatable quality and value at this price point. Very rugged, all-metal, and well-designed. Lots of attention to detail that other higher-priced cases lack. The front faceplate and removable drive bay covers are metal - no cheap plastic feeling anywhere. Impressive fit and finish.
Summary: This is a wonderful case. Unlike some cases that use a tool-free installation and thus don't work well with certain 5.25 accessories, this case provides standard screw installations and sufficient room inside.
