5 out of 5 eggsExactly what I needed

Pros: The product was nicer than the description. It arrived with a bag of assorted extra bolts. The front handles are a little nicer than the photo and can still be removed. The minimal depth, clean look and flexible interior mounting options worked out great. This case is ideal for my rack mount entertainment center application especially considering my minimal depth requirement.

Cons: I did not need a power supply, but I don't recall the descirption being clear that it did not come with one.

Other Thoughts: I converted a Dell desktop into this case for my entertainment center. I reused my desktop fans so can't speak quality of the four fans that came with the case. Perfect case for entertainment center applications.

Pros: See previous review.

2 out of 5 eggsPoor Quality Control

Pros: 3U, Fits full size ATX motherboard, Three 5.25 bays (not two like the picture controls.

Cons: Poor quality control. The top cover does not fit correctly, and many of the case screws are stripped

Nuts were installed on three out of the six screws securing the handles to the case. The screws must have been stripped during the manufacturing process and the nuts were installed as a fix.

Also, there are many sharp edges inside the case. Be careful with finger and wires.

4 out of 5 eggsan addition to my prior review - case is different than pictured

Pros: good case

Cons: no instructions or accessories

Other Thoughts: i neglected to include one piece of information on my prior review, this case design has changed versus what newegg has shown in the previews. the case has THREE 5.25" bays in the front left, not two as shown in newegg's pictures. also the handle design has changed and is now a larger black plastic and metal design versus the steel handles shown in the pictures here.

4 out of 5 eggsdecent no-frills rackmount case

Pros: decent, easy to work in no-frills case. comes with 2x 60mm fans and 2x 80mm fans. allows for mounting of ATX motherboards if you are willing to sacrifice some of your expansion slots (the case only has four expansion slots accessible). clean, easy layout inside, good airflow.
the case is also shallow, at only a hair above 15" deep it can fit in a lot of studio rack cases.

Cons: no instructions of any kind (not that you need them) but curiously - no mounting hardware of any kind. so say if your motherboard uses more than standard atx mounting standoffs, you'll have to purchase your own.
use of 80mm fans in the front doesnt make any sense - there is more than ample room for 120mm fans there. at the very least, add mounting posts for them. 120s are more efficient and can usually be run more quietly.
you also cant use all the hard drive mounting bays if your motherboard is standard depth.

Other Thoughts: this case was purchased for a studio machine and for that purpose, with some proper component selection like quiet fans, is well-suited to the purpose. case has good airflow and is aesthetically pleasing with its minimal but well-designed front panel.
my only recommendations for this case would be improved cooling or at least the option to add it on your own, and the inclusion of some screws or standoffs is a no-brainer.
my only wish for it would be a vertically-mounted PSU but that would likely require a proprietary PSU and drive up the cost.
