1 out of 5 eggsGood idea, bad execution

Pros: Smallest hot-swap mini-ITX case I've ever seen, perfectly designed for a NAS or small file server.

Cons: No documentation included with case. Online documentation is a generic manual with sections not applicable or even completely incorrect for the case. Advertised accessories are impossible to find. SATA cables too short to reach ports. Optical drive bracket blocks power cables.

The power brick is big and noisy, and the distribution is sloppily put together. After three months of functioning, the distribution board stopped functioning correctly. It rebooted my server in the middle of file transfers, fried the motherboard's USB 3.0 chip, and finally stopped turning on at all. I wish I had found this out before I installed the replacement motherboard, which it now may also have fried.

The proprietary power supply is a real risk. If it works - great, though it's not the most efficient supply in the world. If not, you are locked in to the two-part, non-standard solution, and are dependent on Chenbro's technical support, which is sorely lacking, for a replacement.

Other Thoughts: Chenbro's tech support page is a web form that pulls double duty as a sales contact e-mail form. There are no numbers to call, no options specifically for repairs or RMAs, and no fields to gather any information about the products you own.

I am regretting this purchase greatly.

3 out of 5 eggsIs this practical?

Pros: a small foot print & a good design
easy to open inside
separated compartment.

Cons: Flash card reader is an optional, not included!
Remote control adapter is an optional, too.
It is almost impossible find those optional parts.
Lots of LEDs. Check your mb for connections.
No PCI slots.

Other Thoughts: I purchased an ATOM ITX mb w/4 sata for this case.
An IDE to SATA converter might help my shortage of connections over 4 HDDs. Still, I have 1 more for a slim DVD-RW.
THINK MORE before buying this pricy case.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat small case for NAS

Pros: Small case that fits 4 3.5" hard drives.
Love it.

Cons: Mine came with broken power LED so build quality is so so.
But still a good case for a NAS.
Non-standard PSU meaning hard to replace if it breaks..?

Other Thoughts: Thanks NewEgg for bringing this case to US. It was hard to get earlier.
Also be aware that it comes in TWO different PSU sizes. So pick the one that fits your needs...

5 out of 5 eggsgreat case

Pros: I love this case. I built a beautiful HTPC running Ubuntu and XBMC. Got this case mainly for the 4 hot-swappable drive-bays and it didn't disappoint. The case is well constructed, feels solid and has good features in terms of hiding some of the underpinnings that I frankly don't care about. Everything in the case is easily accessible. The drive bays slide in and out with ease. It has more options for LEF displays than my motherboard supports, I should put that as a negative... :p

Cons: I can't find the optional IR receiver anywhere! I want one!

5 out of 5 eggsSmall.. but packs a punch

Pros: Small, but VERY well structured enclosure. Easy to dismantle and assemble. Mini-ITX and Mini-DTX boards.
And surprisingly quiet, even with 2 fans!

Cons: Hmm.. Oh well..
Maybe the fans are not "silent". :-D

Other Thoughts: I had installed a zotac Mini-DTX, a slim-drive and 2.5" HDD for OS, all withing a matter of 2 hours. The front panel removal can be tricky as mentioned by previous posters. I took extra-care to dis-lodge the inner clips, which is a must if you want the panel clips intact.
So far I love it. I have it running WHS Vail beta.

5 out of 5 eggsamazing case if you have the cash

Pros: great case, surprisingly small, gonna stick a zotac h55 in this thing

Cons: when installing hd's into removable bays, 3 out of the 4 bays, i had to force the screws in since they weren't aligned correctly.

Other Thoughts: just be very very careful when removing the front part of the case

4 out of 5 eggsNice but expense case, Do you need those bays?

Pros: Attractive
Small footprint
Hot-Swap bays (But do you need them?)
Screwless optical drive mounting bracket

Cons: Expensive
Stock fans are very loud
TIGHT space
Included riser adapter is PCI.
If you need to install a card note that the cable routing in the case will make for an extremely tight install. The four drive SATA cables along with 24 pin power cable will be pressing against it.
Case supports 4 hot swap drives, 1 internal 2.5" drive and optical drive but it is hard to find a mini-itx board with more than 4 internal SATA ports.

Other Thoughts: I bought this case for a Windows Home Server build. Overall I'm very happy with the results. This is a nice looking case that doesn't take up much space.
Case comes with 2 pretty loud 70mm fans. I purchased some aftermarket 70mm fans but found that they were thicker than the originals and did not fit in the case since the original fans are already up against the power distribution board. I had originally planned to sit the server on my desk but the fan noise it makes in stock configuration is nerve-wracking. I moved it to a different room.
This was my first experience with a mini-itx case and motherboard. If you are used to larger ATX cases then working around in this one is going to be a learning experience. Before you buy this case ask yourself if you really need those hot-swap bays. If not then there are some really nice mini-itx case alternatives (PC-Q08) or consider going with micro atx which really opens up your options.

5 out of 5 eggsSilent case with a lot of extras

Pros: 4 SATA drives, Mini ITX. Optical drive. Completely silent. Good cooling. Perfect for a NAS or SAN.

Cons: The "black" version is actually "slate" or "Graphite" not black. It has black trim.

Cheap connector for external power supply. Could have at least made a locking connector.

Plastic front is lockable, but you can easily open it without the key.

Other Thoughts: There is an expansion card bracket included, but no slot opening on the back for it. Not sure what it is for.

4 out of 5 eggsAdequate to the task, needs polish

Pros: Hotswap drive bays w/ backplane, small form factor, external power supply included.
It's the only case I can find with this featureset, and it gets the job done.

Cons: Fans moderately noisy, and unusual size makes them difficult to replace. PSU makes a loud hum at times. Cable routing is difficult in the cramped space. Card reader and IR options are nearly impossible to find. Backplane can be a bit finicky about properly seating the drive. None of these are dealbreakers, but it'd be nice to have a case with the little details done right.

Other Thoughts: I wanted a NAS/HTPC combination, and built a system using this case, a Pegatron IPX7A ION motherboard, 2 GB of RAM, and 4 WD Green drives. Haven't measured power consumption, but it ought to be pretty reasonable. Works quite well using Ubuntu 9.04.
