Phenomenal Value as a Shell Shocker 07/19/2013
Ridiculously cheap with Shell Shocker deal. Included power supply and two fans. Very nice appearance. Did I say ridiculously cheap?
Cut myself on hidden sharp edge, iffy screwless attachments, huge for a mini case! No way that is really a 400W power supply!
Bought this because the power supply to my Foxconn R20-D2. That little thing was pretty great... except it had no fans whatsoever. The power supply bit the dust and the cheapest I could find the narrow Channelwell for on yabE was about $61. This HEC case with power supply cost less than a quarter of that after rebate! I love playing Frankenstein with computer parts so this was a fantastic excuse to buy a new case and see if, when all was said and done, "It's alive!"
Pay no attention to the reviews that complain about cheap metal (it's fine) or non-working headphone jacks (they're fine) or DVD drive door issues (it's fine). Especially, pay no attention to those who don't look at the photos or the specs and then complain that only one DVD will fit!
My only gripes are really pretty minor at this price point. I cut myself on a hidden sharp edge while forcing the stupid DVD drive into place (though not as badly as I had in that lethal Foxconn case). Those screwless attachments are sketchy and best supplemented or replaced by screws. The fans are tiny tiny but what do you expect for [almost] nothing. Most of all, that power supply is not heavy enough to anchor a rock to the bottom of a quiet pond: there's no way it's 400W. I doubt it's even 230W or so as one reviewer suggested. I think I built heavier slot car motors as a kid. But when that power supply does go, at least it's a standard size and there are always great deals available on power supplies on The Egg!
