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). The case is so nice that I plan on moving my gaming rig into one next time they go on sale.
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 ... the drive mounts are indeed WOEFUL. The worst I have ever seen.
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: Freaking AWESOME! I could fit my gaming station in it, with WATER COOLING! since it has middle fans! Really nice case for the price, feels solid, big as I like rack cases to be, fans are very quiet, I'll buy more of these for sure!
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.
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.
