Pros: Solid construction - the case has heft, I don't feel worried about putting a monitor on top of the closed case. Or a mid sized child.
Spacious - take of the lid and there's a mezzanine wall that leaves one large free rectanlge of fill-to-your-desire goodness.
Handy usb connections behind front panel.
Cons: Any power supply redundancy configuration is of your own design, it'll all hang off the four screw mountpoints that a standard ATX suply would attach to.
Make sure you have good long power leads to reach back and accross to that mezzanine mentioned above.
Don't let the chassis fall on the mid size child used to teat the lid strength.
You'l need a screwdriver to get in and out. It's only the one tool but the in most other respects the setup is tool-less seems incongruous.
Other Thoughts: While the disk trays/enclosures fill a bit wibbly, they have thus far behaved without fault. Hot insertion/replacement worked fine so far. The best thing I can say is that it's fairly boring in use, after installation it hasn't really crossed my mind.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Light, decent keyboard, workable installation, and enough umph to drive a 1080 video stream as a Mythtv frontend. Just bought a second one.
Cons: Not much, maybe the need to crack the box to install an SSD. ;)READ FULL REVIEW
