Excerpt: We don’t just want to give a 1 verdict to the person responsible for the power-on mechanism in this Ferrari-themed case. We want to strap him to a jet engine. Harsh words, but you too will be driven to undertake such bold action once you hear the ear-splitting rev of a car engine after you hit the F430’s power button. You can disable this “feature” by pulling the plug on the front panel, but hearing this noise even once is too much.
Pros: Pretty; functional; plenty of front-panel hookups.
Cons: We hate hate hate the startup sound; limited cooling; front-panel connectors go in front of the drive bays, not behind.
