Good but not great 03/28/2013
The price for this case is right where I needed it. I was setting up a MySQL cluster group so I needed a case with lots of HD bays, but decently priced. The case it's self seem to well made for the most part.
1 case did have a dead power LED, but that was fine, I used one of the Nic LED's on the front as a replacement.
Who ever designed the tool-less bays needs their head examined. It's what cause me to rate this 3 eggs. The tool-less drive holders are a pain to place on the drives. As well in my case I had to take a hacksaw to them and remove a section of the handles in order to get my power cables to properly connect to all 8 of the hard drives. Without doing that it was so tight of a fit that I just could not get them to connect. In fact I broke part of the power connector form the power supply trying to get it all to connect before I grabbed the hacksaw.
Could use a better cable management system. The rail that runs a cross it is fine, but I can see it causing air flow issues.
