3 out of 5 eggsUnique case

Pros: Very unique. Perfect for my Windows Home Server needs. ITX form factor is all I wanted / needed. It's small and sexy, but at the same time, the geek factor is high too. PSU seems pretty efficient. Setup was easy, although I didn't mess with the slim drive or SD slot, which I think would be more challenging.

Cons: If you run with both included case fans (70mm) running at full tilt, then it is pretty loud. But then, it is a server chassis, so noise doesn't seem to have been a big goal. Because I'm running a low power CPU/mobo, I was able to easily unplug one fan and move the remaining one to the speed controlled jumper on the mobo. Much quieter now (and plenty cool). Ah!

The only issue remaining is that the C5 AC cable going to the power brick was bent and no amount of force would fix. I happened to find an old laptop with the same cable, but no amount of contacting Chenbro tech support has resulted in a new cable.

Other Thoughts: This case has an external power supply. There is a different version (not sold by newegg at this time) that has an internal PSU.

One other observation... this unit does not come with the SD card reader or other accessories, apparently those are sold seperately.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat small server case

Pros: Solid all around build
Small size
Atom ITX D510 board fit in with no problems at all
Hard drives slid into place without too much force

Cons: Front cover is slightly weak (seems like the only weak part). It locks, but it really wouldn't take a lot to snap it open anyway, so that's only a minor deterrent.

Other Thoughts: I've been running this case as a headless server on my home network since I received it. Tight fit in some spots, but it does not inhibit airflow or put pressure on any components.

I did not use the 2.5" hard drive bay or the slim optical drive bay, but they appear to provide enough space to not cause any problems as long as they are installed last.

I'm using hard drives in all four hot swap bays and all the lights are working correctly and showing through the dark front panel. I am very happy with the case and I will most likely purchase this one or another similar model again for building up home or small business servers in the future.

3 out of 5 eggsAmazing Case, minor design flaws

Pros: I'm stunned at the engineering that went into packing everything into such a small space. Will hold 4x3.5" drives, a slim CD, 2.5" drive, SD/MC card reader.

Cons: 1. Wouldn't recognize any drives. I thought it might be a faulty backplane controller. Turns out you REALLY need to slam the trays in to get a connection. Gentle or even hard push didn't work.NOTE: A tiny blue LED on the bottom of each drive lights up if the drive is connected.
2. The front case won't close if you have a card in the SD card reader. I had to mod the metal bracket (drilled new mounting holes, used mobo anchors with small nuts to mount sd card reader to bracket. Then cut the corner of the metal bracket so it Could slide in the case.
3. Weak door hinges. Mine are not broken yet. I was *very* careful not to snap them.
4. Don't follow the manual directions for popping off the front of the case. You'll break the tabs off. Pop off the open side tabs with your fingers then use long flat head screwdriver for opposite side.
5. SD card reader/PCI riser hard to find.
6. Power connection for external power supply seems cheap. It may not last long.
7. Fans are loud.

Other Thoughts: If you want a small NAS or HTPC. The case is very tiny and packs quite the feature sets. Despite the minor annoyances, I would buy again. Have fun getting everything to fit. I was plagued by annoying problems. One fan stopped working when I put the case together (pinched wire), the drives don't connect unless you slam them pretty hard, had to cut up and drill the metal bracket for the SD card reader to fit with a card and close the case door (my OS runs off the SD card).

4 out of 5 eggsGreat small server case

Pros: 4 hot swap drive bays, easy to work in, and small. It is quiet and looks very good sitting over in the corner of my work room.

Cons: I would prefer an internal power supply, and the add on components for this case like card readers are not obvious where to get them from.

4 out of 5 eggsPerfect 4xSATA Server

Pros: Case hold exactly what I needed, Mini-ITX board, 4xSATA hot swap, 1 slim-line PCI (RAID card), 1x2.5" HDD, slimline optical, and internal PSU. I'm currently using a Intel ATOM board (non-gigabit) and haven't had any issues for over a year.

Cons: I REALLY dislike the whole installation process, prepare to really get your hand dirty trying to get everything to fit. The front door hinges are weak and broke on me, and the bracket to hold a PCI card isn't included, neither is the card reader for up front.

Still, I have yet to find a case that holds all of this as well as this setup. I would buy it again, but would like more competition for the "home server mini-itx" market.

4 out of 5 eggsBeautiful case but...

Pros: Well built, well thought out case. Holds 4-3 1/2 in drives, hot-swappable. Very small, clean looking.

Cons: Does not work with Intel DG45FC motherboard. I found a couple of people who said they were using this case with this motherboard, but mine would not boot. After more research, I found the 2x2 pin connector needs to be a 2x2 pin, not a converted 1x4 pin, which is with this case. Also, the manual is not included; it is available online only.

Other Thoughts: I would have loved for this case to work to house my Windows Home Server, and tried over and over to get it to boot, but it was clear that the power supply just wouldn't cut it. Perhaps there is a way to boost the power, but I wasn't willing to throw more money into experimenting. I understand other motherboards will work with this case; just be sure to check out the power requirements before building.
