5 out of 5 eggsSimple, effective, and dirt cheap when on sale!

Pros: -Easy to work with
-Installing components was a breeze
-Fits perfectly into a standard rack
-Low profile
-High quality build
-Space for two 80mm fans
-Fits a standard ATX PSU

I bought two of these when they were one sale. I used one for VPN / VOIP server and the other for a pfSense machine and couldn't be happier.

Cons: The only con is that power LED is extremely bright. This won't be an issue once I get a cabinet to put these in, but while not in one, the lights are overwhelming. I have covered them up for the time being.

Other Thoughts: One slight annoyance is that you have to take the drive cages out to put drives in. However, this really doesn't matter if you plan on using this for something you don't plan to tinker with much.

If you get one of these, make sure you use a modular PSU if you can. Especially if you plan to have a CD/DVD drive installed. There isn't much room for excess cables and It makes the build much cleaner and less restrictive for airflow through the case.

I wish I would have bought another one while they were so cheap. $30 is such a great deal for these.

5 out of 5 eggsWorked Perfectly

Pros: Uses ATX PSU, 5.25 front bay can hold an IcyDock backplane, internal drive trays removable (more space and maybe better airflow as they were in the direct path of the 80mm fans).

Cons: Since it uses an ATX PSU, it can get a little cramped in there. I would recommend a modular PSU to minimize extra molex and SATA power connectors.

Other Thoughts: This ended up being used for a FreePBX box.

4 out of 5 eggsGood quality and value

Pros: I purchased this during a recent sale. Mine differs slightly from the pictures. It has two of those nice permanently-attached thumb screws for securing the top panel.

Cons: The 3.5" drive cages look tall enough to hold 3 drives each, but they are only drilled for 2.

Other Thoughts: The quality seems perfectly acceptable. It appears to be drilled for rails, but you might not need any. It's not very heavy.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent Case

Pros: Cheap, fits in a rack. 6 drive bays

Cons: Drive cages are pretty bare bones and hard to work with. No fans included.

Other Thoughts: Used this with a Mini-ITX board and a low profile cooler for socket 1155. Everything fit fine. Full ATX PSU. I'd recommend modular cabled PSU since there isn't a lot of room. I didn't install a 3.5 bay drive, so no issues with cable management.

3 out of 5 eggsOther reviews are spot-on

Pros: This works exactly like the other reviewers stated. It's pretty cheap, good basic rack mount case. I haven't tried mounting it yet, but don't anticipate problems. There are a ton of different screws included. Clean lines.

Cons: Biggest con - advertises two 80mm fans. There were exactly zero fans included. Not a big deal since I didn't want two loud fans and got two really quiet ones instead, just hate being lied to. The insides are a little tight, particularly at the front where they put the drive bays. The 5.25 external bay is really hard to get out unless you have just the right tools for the job. My mobo power connector really gets in the way of the 3.5 internal drive bays. At most I'm going to be able to fit one drive in here, which is all I need, but you may have other plans... look closely at the pictures and decide if you'll be ok or not. It is really tight!

Also, it seems like there were different screw threads for everything, so I had to keep trying different screws until I got the ones that seemed to fit.

USB on front is 2.0 which is odd, but something I knew and could live with.

Other Thoughts: CX430 PSU fit wonderfully. I am using an MSI Z98-G43 micro mobo. Fortunately, I went with a M.2 system drive which is a good solution to the 3.5 drive mounting issue.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat rack case

Pros: Metal case, heavy duty but lightweight overall. The "guts" inside allow you to swap HDD panels around a little if you want more room for other "stuff." Great threaded bolts on the cover that don't come off, only loosen, for servicing. Rack ears on the front for easy handling. Own several of these-plan on purchasing more as well.

Cons: None-besides having to remove the HDD racks in order to mount fans.

3 out of 5 eggsOk case

Pros: Nice and small, looks pretty decent as well.

Cons: Terrible drive mounting. Do not expect to put more than one full size 3.5" drive in this without it possibly running into things on the motherboard. Wasn't and issue for me but something to watch out for.

Watch the non rolled edges on the drive cages as well, very sharp.

Wish you could remove the handle piece of the rack ears.

Other Thoughts: It's an OK case that works well enough. Nothing special, nothing really terrible other than the drive mounting options.

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice rack mount case

Pros: Simple and inexpensive. Able to use standard PSU and CPU fans.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I have several of these, Some actual metal servers and others as ESXi 5.x hosts. This is an excellent case if you avoid a couple trouble areas. If you are going to use 3.5 HDDs then you are limited to 2 as it's almost impossible to fit them in the two lower mounting slots because the motherboard interferes with that area.
I always combine this case with a 4 x 2.5 drive cage that fits in the external bay and it's just shallow enough to allow the PSU cables to fit. I can completely remove the two 3.5 drive brackets if I need extra room.
If you put the case into an enclosure rather than a rack it can be a pain to remove it just to get into the case compared to a rack on rails but then again this doesn't cost $500+ dollars.

3 out of 5 eggsDoes not fit 19 inch rack

Pros: Nice low cost ($69) chassis. Light construction but my plan is for it to live in a rack.

Cons: The rack mounting brackets provided with this chassis are too wide. When installed they bring the width of the assy to 19 3/16 inches. This exceeds both the rack standard and iStars dimensioned drawing downloaded from their site. fortunately I am using rails to support the chassis but I still need the proper mounting brackets.

Other Thoughts: It is worth noting that I also purchased an IStar D-214-MATX, which is essentially the same chassis but with a different internal layout. The D-214-MATX shipped with different mounting brackets which when installed on either chassis fit the rack perfectly.. So iStar does know how to do it right.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great chassis, useful for a server / render farm setup. This case will only take micro atx, and although it has space for 4 drives will only fit 2 3.5" drives.

Cons: Some dis-assembly is required to install the fans / hard drives. This includes things like unscrewing housings and replacing grates, but is trivial in my opinion.
