This review is from: iStarUSA D-400-7P Black 1.2mm SECC Zinc-Coated Steel (Japan Made) (Main Chassis) 4U Rackmount Compact Stylish Chassis 7 External 5.25" Drive Bays
Pros: Price, Shipping Speed
Cons: Gaps around case cutout for the 5.25" bays, Not a lot of paperwork
Other Thoughts: The one problem with internet shopping is that you can't inspect the item for yourself. Can't look at quality or all of the little pro's and con's that will make or break the sale. However, despite all that I decided to go with this server case and I have to say I'm very happy with it. In terms of overall quality I would place this in the upper half of the mid range in quality. Its well built and sturdy, but you can tell that its not made like a Swiss watch like some of the $500+ cases. That being said, what really made me like this case was all of the little things that they don't tell you. For example, not only does it come with a lifetime supply of screws for those like me who loose them, but it also came with 4 additional black painted fan mount screws to replace the silver ones that will come with a second 80mm fan if you purchase one. On top of that they send you a second support bar, so if you have a vertical CPU cooler, the second support bar can be mounted in front of it in place of the original. Another aspect I really like are the air filters on the front doors are easily removed for cleaning. Also, I adore black interiors for cases and this case was a piece of cake to disassemble to paint black and then reassemble.
