Summary: I really didn't like the drive bay mounts, and the drive cage The cage on the left didn't lock properly. The plastic hard drive bay mounts with metal pins wouldn't fit in the screw holes of my hard drives, this made the pins crooked and they wouldn't fit into the drive cage.
Pros: Well built, not flimsy Amount of metal for the price is on par with other cases Lots of fans
Cons: Attention to detail is poor 5.25" covers and drive bay mounting is TERRIBLE 3.5" HDD "toolless" trays are also HORRIBLE Manual doesn't show which pin is positive for the front panel headers You have to remove 4 screws to get the lid off You have to remove the entire drive cage, unplug all the dri...
Summary: I have purchased many things from newegg in the past. But in the last year or so have stowed ordering from them because last few orders have been completely botch when it comes to shipping. Im tired of waiting 20 to 30 days to get products that should have been here in 5 days.
Pros: Great case. Have 4 of them in a rack set.
Cons: "Ordering"!!!! Be aware that when you order from newegg they will split your order into multiple orders. They will also use multiple carriers to get your products to you. Certain items on this order were shipped through DHL and DHL ten ships the package through USPS. This is the second time havin...
Pros: This is a great case for the money. I mounted it in a trip-lite 1/2 rack and it fit wonderfully. The drive bays are a little difficult to work with, but honestly, how often are you going to swap out the drives? The case also feels pretty sturdy to me, especially after you mount it in a server rack.
Cons: The drive bays could be a little easier to work with, and the edges could be rolled, but otherwise you get a really nice server case for the money. I hope Rosewill keeps making them.
Pros: I've recently bought another one of Rosewill's RSV's cases (RSV-L4412) and I thought that this one couldn't hurt. Honestly, if I had to buy anything, I'd probably buy this case again. Pros is that there are tons of fans.. Something I didn't realize when I reviewed the RSV-L4412 is that the case i...
Cons: Oh, Cons... I find the internal bays to be really frustrating and cheap. At one point, I thought I was going to break the 'easily snap-on' bay, and I wish that you didn't have to remove the entire bay just to add or remove a single hard drive. Every fan is powered via Molex, which is odd to me, a...
Summary: Beautiful case, spacious, outfitted with numerous fans and a dust screen, and best of all CHEAP. The construction of this case makes it feel incredibly sturdy. The lockable cover is useful for the LAN parties so no one sitting near the rack messes with the server!
Summary: Pros: inexpensive, lots of room, strong case, ++ seven reasonably quiet fans, good air flow thru system, room for large motherboards. Cons: First con is, mine came with 7 hard drive caddies for eight hard drive slots.
Summary: This case feels extremely well-built and worked well for the esx host I was building. The are more than enough fans to cool the machine down and the stock fans are fairly quiet when running with a fan controller (haven't tested without).
Reasonably priced. Well built. Intelligent layout. HIDEOUSLY awful drive caddies.

Summary: First off ..... this thing is built like a tank. It is VERY sturdy. It is also really well priced for a true full size 4U with an intelligent layout that lets you change out three 5.25" bays for a hot swap 3.5" drive set or inner 3.5" drive set. As several others have mentioned ...
Great value for home usage. Big. Check the model variations before deciding.

Summary: This case is designed to comfortably support Extended ATX motherboards (12x13"). Look at the dimensions and measure before purchasing - it is very deep. If you don't need EATX, then you might want to look at the R4000 or other "R" models, which are shorter but drop support for EATX.
