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. I'm using this L4000 with an EATX Tyan dual socket-940 board, but any standard ATX or EATX board should fit fine.
Summary: This case is great. Everything fits easily inside and it's very solid. This was well worth the money, as a side note this is Identical to the Logisys server chassis. If you are having trouble finding this one, that case will work and is equally solid.
Summary: This case is really nice for the price. I had a little trouble getting the hard drive rack back into the chassis, but other than that I had no problems with it. While all the fans should keep everything well ventilated, I wish the fans had some sort of different power connector. They all have long wires with those 4-pin molex connectors (like you see on old PATA hard drives).
Summary: This is a sturdy case and does not sag when only mounted to the front rails of my rack. Most of this is well thought out but the hard drive caddies. You will hear people complain about the fan's but it is a SERVER case not a computer case. They do make adapters to control these fans and that is what I plan to use to adapt this server case into a computer case. This case is not made to take the hard drives in and out. Put them in place and forget about them.
Summary: The other reviews really cover the pros and cons pretty well. This case should have been a solid 4 stars but has to lose 1 just for the awful drive mounts. The price with Prime shipping is hard to beat so overall this is a good buy. This is definitely not a case you want to work with often. It's a pain to route things and you'll find yourself removing a lot of screws just to do a simple disk installation.
Summary: I purchased this case to house my home server which utilizes standard desktop components. The chassis is heavy, sturdy and I would anticipate robust. Its not fancy in its design and provides few conveniences that are usually associated with higher-end cases. I would have liked to have had easier access to my hard drives, more along the lines of hotswap.
Summary: If you buy this case be sure to have an alternate plan for putting hard drives into it. The plastic drive trays are terrible. The little part they use in place of screws don't even line up with drive holes. I don't think they could have made the drive system worse if they tried. The layout and the rest of the case is fantastic, but the drive trays make it almost not worth buying.
Summary: Just finished transferring my gaming rig to this case. Pros: * It's a solid 4U case for less than $100. Bang for the buck, you're not going to beat it. * Tons of airflow thanks to 7 fans (that are large, low RPM, and quiet). * It's HUGE. Whatever you have, it'll fit in this sucker. Cons: * The fans are all molex-only. If you want to hook them to the motherboard for speed control, you'll need to buy adapters.
Nice case with Fans and a range of available options and configurations

Summary: My only reservation about giving this case 4 stars is the Disk Caddy Drive Mounting System for the 3.5" Drives which does not align perfectly with the Mounting Holes in the 3.5" Drives. The mounting pins are set in nolded plastic that is not properly trimmed and requires a little work when none should be required.
