Summary: It does not take too long to fix HDD problems for my 2nd one. Slide in HDD connector-side first. Pull the handle of ext.HDD while sliding into the slot fully. I'm using ext.3.5" bay for 2-bay 2.5" HDD cage. This case is good for dual purpose; gaming & server.
Pros: 4 Built-in SATA hot swap tray!!! 4 internal bay for 3.5" HD, nice locking mechanism 2 external bay for 5 1/4" (CD/DVD) 1 external 3.5" bay 7 slots Excellent ventilation, especially the 2 x 120mm huge fan in front of the hard drive bays, strong and quiet. Case is easy to open. Black case + blue LE...
Cons: Provided lots of screws, separated in many small bags, labeled. But the document did not explain all of them.
Summary: All in all this is an average computer case, mind you I still like it very much and all the space for fans is very nice. I may buy this item again.
Pros: This computer case has great ventilation and has just enough room for my GTX 470 graphics card.
Cons: My quick swap raid board that the HDDs slide into was apparently faulty and caused me weeks of aggravation because I thought it was the fault of my HDD but once I realized the problem I removed it using my trusty screwdriver and it works perfectly now. The slots that have to be opened for the PCI...
Summary: A good variation of this case front panel with one or two bays not covered by door for temp monitoring controller and or media reader
Pros: Review Update: XION is sending a replacement front panel. I just faxed them the invoice and filled out RMA form and they did not require me to send back the broken panel saving me shipping cost. This is after 30 days of purchase. AWESOME! Rebate is on the way and there's actually someone not an a...
Cons: None! Quality over Price ratio is High. Try to shop for HTPC case and you would know what I mean.
Summary: The company should have a front panel replacement part at least. Better if they have an upgrade to metal or other material for it.
Pros: Everything except the Front panel was well thought out. No rough edges, Lots of extra screws and posts, Every surface painted-NICE and extra room at back panel for cable management. It fits my Titan FENRIR cooler so you know there's lots of room.
Cons: Door's pus-touch locking mechanism failed. The type that you push and clicks closed, another push and it opens. Mine is always Ajar as it catches partially but won's close all the way flushed so the CD/DVD drive jams as it ejects since its door is now not aligned. I have to use the lock key to ma...
Summary: Has holes in the top which is cool, in terms of heat escape, but it's also potentially dangerous; NO LIQUIDS NEAR THE COMPUTER! *sobs* I just want my issues fixed, and then I'll be happy and can rate this 5 stars!
Pros: All black interior. Awesome front loading drives. Compact, yet spacy enough. Great cable management via the back panel FANS! Looks sexy
Cons: The metal is a bit thin, on the inside and stuff. Granted I have a LOT in my case, so it's kinda heavy, but it would be nice if the metal were a bit stronger so I could lift it from different points. The front bit is plastic, and well, for some reason the right side (when facing the front) likes ...
Summary: I disassembled the moving part of plastic unit on removable trays to fit. It works. 550W pwr unit covers the half of top vent w/ fan upward. No compromise for both server & game. The price should be down more.
Pros: 4 Removable bays. Easy to install. Top and side vent for Power supply and video card
Cons: I cannot close front door w/ removable trays in bays. HDD in bays cannot reach interfaces at the end. It is not roomy inside because of removable bays' assembly. Small pwr switch w/ front connection on side panel.
Pros: Granted, I've never spent a lot of money on a case before, but this is the first cheap case I've bought that I've fallen in love with. Everything is so well thought out, and it has awesome tool-less bays inside that make putting everything together a snap. Needless to say, the hot-swap SATA bays ...
Cons: Some people have complained that the front is plastic - I guess that's a con. I don't really care too much.
