This Case is worth it's cost and not a penny more.

Summary: I purchased this to house my upgraded unRAID server. Based on a pretty much universal disdain for the drive cages, I also purchased a pair of iStarUSA BPN-DE350SS trayless drive cages. I did for the fun of it try to mount a couple of old 3.5" drives into the rosewill cage, and was unsuccessful.
Pros: Roomy, Lots of cooling fan mounts, solid for the price.
Summary: second rackmount case, first was too short making my gaming pc too crammed, this case allows for more room for larger video cards.
Pros: - Longer then most - Lots of fans - Modular - Very good for gaming PC I was able to mount my dual fan liquid cooling system to the center rail that already has fans, so i have fans on each side of my liquid cooling!
Cons: This is my second rackmount case, and I just finished building my PC in this new case, mounted my rails, and then as im sliding it into my cabinet it stops short... I dont know if this was intentional or a mistake, but it does not make sense to me unless Rosewill has propriatary rails. The handle...
Summary: Other than the horrible wiring and fan issues this case could be worth the 89$ price tag. But the time it took to fix these issues made the case a nightmare and not worth the cost savings.
Pros: -Huge, can hold just about any mobo less than 12x13" -Removable HD trays -Rails for cable management
Cons: -Components such as power, reset, hdd activity light are wired super cheaply (understandably at this price point) -Two of the fans that are on the 'divider' between the motherboard side and the harddrive side could not be connected via molex due to super cheap pins bending -One of the rear fans w...
Summary: I'm turning the third defective case into a coffee table or a wall-mounted bookshelf. Because Rosewill quality. Edit: If anyone needs a decent rail option for this case, DO NOT BUY THE RAILS FROM ROSEWILL.
Pros: Amazing cooling options, filtered front panel, $80 piece of heavy steel. Can accommodate SSI EEB-sized mobos no problem.
Cons: Something I like to call "Rosewill quality". In about 3 of the 30-something cases I've used in builds already, there were slips through QA. In the first one, the front panel had TWO reset switch headers with the same colored wires and labels. So I had to determine which one is power and which is ...
Cons: I bought this to upgrade my FreeNAS computer. Started out taking the lid off and one of the screws was stripped. Installing the stand off for the MB, one of the holes had no threads or something. The stand off sort of screw-ed in but is stripped. Connectors on the fans are cheap and the pins won'...
Summary: I really don't like it, it's very hard to use. To remove the hard drives, you have to remove the top cover, 4 screws, remove the fan assembly, 4 more screws. then tug and pull at the plastic drive bays, because when you inserted a drive into the plastic caddy, it made the caddy larger than the drive...
Pros: It's a metal box that holds computer parts
Cons: The way it holds said computer parts is deeply flawed It's the worst case i have ever used.
Summary: Does this case come with lower profile handles? I won't be happy if I have to pull the handles / front cover off to make this fit the rack. I'll be more then happy to change the rating if I can find a work around...
Pros: The amount of fans this case is capable of holding is quite substantial. I've had zero problems with keeping some very flimsy heatsinks cool. There's also plenty of space to work with.
Cons: I purchased this case with Rosewill's RSV-R26LX rails. The case does not slide all the way back because it is hitting the mounting brackets for the handles. The handles now stick out just far enough (about half an inch) to keep me from closing the rack's door.
