Great looking and well built case!
Pros: Great looking case, even my wife loves it. Pictures do not do it justice. Very well built and solid. Plenty of room for a modest home server (I'm going to load it with 2 3.5" drives, and get the 4 x 2.5" adapter later on down the road). I will probably buy a couple more for other purposes (development web server, virtual machine server, dedicated firewall...)
Cons: This wasn't a con for me, but just to warn others: This case came with absolutely no manual. If you pay attention, the build is very straight forward, though.
Other Thoughts: Be sure you get a power supply that does not have a fan on the bottom! The PSU will be touching the bottom and top of the case, it's that tight. I'm using a Thermaltake PurePower 430W that has an 80mm fan front and back, and it's perfect for this case.

Pros: Unknown, never could open case.
Cons: Well... not being able to open the case is a pretty big con...
Other Thoughts: This is a cool looking case and I wanted to like it but the case screws they used are so soft they stripped with almost zero effort.

Wow what a 2U case, super solid
Pros: I can't get over how solid it is, and the Red anodizing looks far better in person. I did NOT install a few boards, I just layed them in it, all boards, no matter who makes it fit seriously well, unless you get a bent chassis, all should fit, from an Intel D945GCLF to a really old Dell board the mobo mounts align so well you don't have to push in outer directions to “force start” a screw. I would never write a review about fan noise because that's just ridiculous when it comes to commercial hardware. I didn't install a CD ROM drive I installed Newegg 11-999-215 touch screen fan controller, the Red in that unit and the red of the 2U are no where near close, but are a perfect match when together you know what I mean? The right kind of look. Don't forget to keep a 6 inch or longer Phillips screwdriver handy when it comes to the removal of the 5.25” vented blank plate. Not that you'll care be careful when installing the unit, 4 hands are better than two because the rack bracket hand holds
Cons: None at all, how can there be? You'll see
Other Thoughts: are super sharp. When I win the lottery I will call this company directly and buy all of them so none of you can have any ;p Again, I don't write reviews but in this case, the iStarUSA D-213-MATX-RED Metal/ Aluminum 2U deserves it. Now, Newegg and iStarUSA, don't jack up the price just because you got something right.
