I can't believe I got so much case for so little money!
This review is from: iStarUSA D416-B5SA-75 4U Rackmount Compact Stylish Server Chassis 750W
Pros: The case is extremely rigid and solidly built. The included PSU has ample power and connectors for nearly any hardware configuration. The midship brackets for three extra fans are a nice touch. The locking door is perfect for security-intensive applications such as the DVR I built in this case, so no one can shut down the recorder or steal the footage by pulling the hard drives out.
Cons: The top panel is kind of flimsy compared to the rest of the case and does not include any type of quick-release latch, and the screws securing it are on the sides, so you have to cram a stumpy screwdriver in between the sides of the rack and the case to open it if you ever need to. I found it easier just to leave the screws out and slide the top off when needed.
Other Thoughts: So none of my listed cons were bad enough for me to sway anyone away from the case but, like death by a thousand pinpricks, there were enough of them that I had to take an egg away.
