This review is from: iStarUSA D407PL-DE6BK Black Aluminum / Steel 4U Rackmount Server Chassis with 6 Trayless Hotswap Bays, Plastic Bezels 3 External 5.25" Drive Bays
Pros: Nearly perfect, simple and sturdy case design. Large area inside for air flow and cable runs. The hotswap bays are decent. Two included 80mm fans are nice. The three 120mm fans are hot swap, very nice touch.
Cons: The middle 3.5" bay is nearly useless if you are trying to installed a pair of 2.5" SSD's. It appears you can only bottom mount a 3.5" hard drive, not good iStarUSA. I had to use the only remaining 3.5" external bay to mount my SSD's using a 2.5" to 3.5" adapter. Even then, the 3.5" slot cover must be removed as the drives use the same screw holes as the slot cover.
The top cover fits cheaply, you need to insert a screw on either side of the lid at midpoint (in addition to the rear finger screw) to get the top to fit snugly. Imaging getting to these screws if you have racks on either side and your case isn't on rails.
Should include rails since there are not many other places you are going to place this case, you CAN NOT simply install this case with just the face screws as the case (when filled) is naturally just to heavy. Include the rails, they are generic enough to be used on any rack.
Also, it would be nice if the fan/temp controller was included.
