Pros: This camera stock takes better video than any other SLR out there, but what makes it even more amazing is that it is hackable. Just search GH2 Vataliy Hack and you will begin to understand. Read carefully how to do this, but essentially you load an update (hack) onto your memory card, press play and update it with some very very nice features and you now have a very high end film camera which could be used to make a feature film. You do void your warranty in doing so, but all I can say is it is very worth it IMHO. The bitrates go from stock 17mbps to as high as 176mbps. You unlock ISO 12800 in video for well lit night shots. A great almost unknown stock feature is EX Tele, which uses only 1920X1080 of the otherwise much larger image sensor giving you a 2.6x zoom which is actually 5.2x compared to a standard 35mm camera, and this is with with zero light loss and full HD resolution !!
Cons: Not really a con, but invest in a really good memory card like a 16gb 30mbps or higher class 10. Not all class 10's are equal, and some are quirky with the hacks. For example sandisk extreme pro 45mbps card will not work with some of the higher end features. The 30mbps card will as weird as it sounds. If you're gonna hack it read up before doing so, and remember you void the warranty. Also a hacked camera uses the memory card even faster since the bit rates are so high. All that being said BUY THIS CAMERA IF YOU CAN AFFORD TO.

Pros: Very open case. I have an Asus Crosshair formula II Mobo, 2 sata HD's a 600 watt OCZ PSU and a DVD player, and the case feels empty. Very nice for when I switch out drives, I would say the tool less feature on the hard drive and CD drive slots works very nicely once you practice a few times. You could easily replace these with the tin kind for free or close to. Keeps everything nice and cool even when I only use one fan for exhaust.
Cons: The tool less bits on the back suck as mentioned by others, but they don't effect anything since they are only there to block off which slots are not being used IN THE BACK OF THE CASE WHERE NO ONE SEES.
Also I never bothered installing a fan in the front because it seems like a pain, and I like it without the glowing fan. They are good fans though that push allot of air and are quite (I recommend tossing the mesh filter because it makes it louder and it looks better without it). I replaced my fans with Noise Blockers, great fans made in Germany, hard to get, and expensive but last forever.
Other Thoughts: Easy to use, keeps things cool, with spaciousness, and looks nice clean and cool. Good Case.READ FULL REVIEW
