1 out of 5 eggs Poor execution of a great concept 02/02/2014

This review is from: EVGA Hadron Air Mini-ITX Chassis Black with 500W 80Plus Gold Power Supply (110-MA-1001-K1)

Pros: Beautiful, high-quality materials

Cons: The drive cage is not removable, making it near-impossible to work on anything once the motherboard is in the case. This wouldn't be a problem except for the included proprietary power supply has very short cables that make it ALSO near-impossible to assemble components OUTSIDE the case. Said power supply can not be replaced or modified, so when the internal fan goes bad and starts sounding like a meat grinder, which mine did after 1 day of use, you have to RMA the whole thing, for which Newegg charges $25 + shipping. Not cool.

Other Thoughts: I understand that small form-factor builds have challenges all their own, and this really is a great looking case. However there is a line between "challenging" and "rubbish" on the experience scale. For me, the poor drive cage, poor PSU cables, poor PSU fan, and poor RMA process add up to a 1-egg review. Do with these thoughts as you will.
