5 out of 5 eggsRolls Royce of PSUs

Pros: The PSU comes in a velvet sack like a bottle of Crown Royal!! The owners book pages feel like they are made of cloth or something other than plain paper. High quality feel. All cabling is detachable. 2 close-able sacks for the cabling. One sack for MB other for power cables. Everything feels of good quality. Whoever managed the production, packaging of this device spared no expense.

Cons: Its upside down!! I installed this thing in my case and it didn't really fit. Took me two days to figure out that all the text is printed upside down. The Newegg picture was the final hint.

Other Thoughts: I got this because of the 80Plus Gold certification and the 5 year warranty. I don't need anywhere near the output this is capable of. Its very expensive for a PSU, but I do have a sense of confidence from the packaging and build quality. I wouldn't buy this for a friend since there are probably better deals out there, but for myself, I think its going to serve nicely.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Case

Pros: The case is easy to open and close with 4 small Phillips screws. There is a support bracket of sorts for the PSU, so you don't have to hold it in place while you screw it in. Two big fans blowing on the drive mount points. They have separate plugs. Everything about the case is sturdy. The only thing that feels plastic is the hot swap drive handle. It needed a few more standoffs for my Micro ATX board. It could use a few more holes for some extra support, but its good as it is.

Cons: It doesn't come with slide rails. Though I can see holes in the side of the case to suggest it can use them.

Other Thoughts: This is my first rack mount server case. I'm very pleased with it. I did install my Seasonic PSU upside down. I blame Seasonic though because all the writing is upside down. The only way I knew to turn it over was the Newegg picture is upside down as well...

2 out of 5 eggsnot a good case ...

Pros: small - fairly cheap

Cons: looks super cheap - cheapest looking rack handles ever - sharp too - I would be embarrassed to ship it to a customer.
Fans don't plug into motherboard either so they are noisy and non-intelligent.
I was disappointed because I like and use other istar cases which are generally well designed.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Newegg Customer:

Thank you for choosing the iStarUSA brand to be part of your total computing system. We proudly stand behind our products and hope that you will find your next purchase an iStarUSA brand.
In regards to the fan issue, please note that the fans come with Molex connectors so they won’t plug into your motherboard. Also, being not able to connect the fans to the motherboard shouldn’t cause the fans to be noisy. We strongly suggest checking the number of Molex connects on your power supply unit to make sure that you have enough for hard drives and fans.
Warmest regards,
iStarUSAcare Service

3 out of 5 eggsGood value, but has shortcomings

Pros: Reasonable price, decent build quality

Cons: Hard drive mounting brackets require a really long screwdriver, rear port bezel plate didn't fit snugly, front LED cables not color-coded, not much space between DVD drive and power supply, motherboard mounting posts non-removable, lid is not tool-less, included hot swap bay is as cheaply made as is humanly possible, included fans have Molex connectors instead of motherboard connectors.

iStar 20" mounting rails are also incompatible with this case, believe it or not..

Other Thoughts: Be forewarned...to remove the hard drive brackets, you need a screwdriver with at least a 6" long shank, which your typical screwdriver won't have. There's also very little space between the back of the DVD drive and the power supply...only 1.5 inches (and that's with one of the compact size drives too), so next time round, I may buy something with more depth. Other than that, the case gets the job done. I replaced the included fans with something better first thing, so I can't comment on how loud they are.

Included in the box is a deck of playing cards, which has on it a sticker asking for the user to post feedback at NewEgg. Bizarre, but okay, here's the one bit of feedback iStar should take to heart if they want more than 3 stars:

Ditch the playing cards and include a screwdriver.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Newegg Customer:

Thank you for choosing the iStarUSA brand to be part of your total computing system. We proudly stand behind our products and hope that you will find your next purchase an iStarUSA brand.
Although most IT personnels should be equipped with the long shank screw driver, we will take your suggestion to our product design team. This is why we value your reviews very much, so that we can incorporate better design originations for better products in the near future. As for this particular chassis’ design, it is short depth, thus its limitation in space is usually expected.
Warm regards,
iStarUSAcare Service

5 out of 5 eggsNice case to put my HP Computer in

Pros: Fit my HP quad core athlon computer. Construction seems very good. No problem with hold alignment. See other thoughts

Cons: Had to really stretch the power supply wire to make the connection onto the motherboard, probably not the cases fault as I did take it out of the HP computer. Weird Blue LED HD activity light on HDD removable rack system but this is going in my communications room, so no one will ever see it. Does look pretty cool in the dark.

Other Thoughts: I have a HP quad-core (AMD all there processors support virtualization) computer with 8 GB of RAM and I wanted to rack mount it as I wiped out windows and installed Citrix Zen Server on it (Virtualization). Enter this case. The motherboard in that computer was uATX (MicroATX) so it fit no problem. The connections from the case to the motherboard were another problem as there is no information as to what they are but nothing a little testing with a screw driver can't fix. I'm sorry but I can't remember the model number of the computer but the motherboard was made by foxconn. I like the fact that the case came with a removable HDD drive rack which works pretty good, although feels a little plasticy (Is that a word?) But in case of a HD failure replacing the drive is painless just insert the bare drive into the rack system re-image and you are good to go. Full size expansion cards fit, no need for half-height adapters. All in all I am very happy with this case.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty decent for the price

Pros: Cheap, good build quality for the price.

Cons: Noisy fans (by home computer standards). Handles are pretty sharp. Case flexes when handled.

Other Thoughts: I bought this case a computer to be used on film sets. At this price, I wasn't expecting much but was fairly satisfied. Let's be clear, the case is cheap, but you're entirely getting your money's worth.

The interior design is great and straightforward which is the most important characteristic for a case in my opinion. The hard drive racks are modular and so is the 5.25" rack. Much appreciated features in a 15" depth case.

On the down side, for film sets where ultimate quietness is required, the stock fans had to be replaced as the thing sounded like a jet engine at takeoff (usually not a problem for a server room). Also, the case is built with cheap materials. The handles, made of aluminum most likely, were easily nicked and were cut to very sharp corners originally. I nearly ripped my shirt a couple of times while putting the computer together.

All in all, a much recommended product. Oh, and I got a free deck of cards with servers and rack accessories on it with it. Cute.

4 out of 5 eggsGood case, needs some forethought

Pros: * Cheap - Basically the reason I gave this 4 stars instead of less. Excellent price more than makes up for its shortcomings

* Light - This thing hardly weighs anything. Even loaded. Steel/aluminum construction.

* Hot swap bay - Neat idea, weird implementation. See other thoughts.

Cons: * Some sharp edges. Just be careful. Not as bad as some cases but something to watch for.

* Some forethought needs to be put into this case when building. This isn't a really bad case, but neither will it be a 10 minute build.

* Hard drive bays are a little weird to deal with. See other thoughts on this too.

Other Thoughts: OK, first off, the case is great for the money. I'm not unhappy I bought it. But it has some quirks.

The hot swap bay is cool, but weird and cheap. It doesn't have a tray to put a HDD into, rather you just slide the bare drive right in and slap it shut. On the plus side, it has both SATA and Molex power plugs and either will power the drive.

Speaking of hard drives, you had better make sure you have a 5-6" Phillips screwdriver on hand. Not counting the handle either. You need to remove the hard drive bays to secure the hard drives. It helps to remove the hard drive bays when installing the motherboard so you should do this first anyway. If you have a long screwdriver, easy to deal with.

And last, the hard drive bays themselves can hold 4 drives each. But you can only install drives in the top two bays since they overhang the motherboard right where your RAM sits. That's ok though because iStar only states this holds 5 drives anyway.

I'd buy another.
