Excellent Case by an excellent company!

Pros: Well thought out rack enclosure. Its got plenty of what i would call "stuffing space" for those cables and power supply wires that are too long and would hamper airflow. Speaking of airflow, all of Istar's cases have vents/fan mounts for whatever your rack situation. Can't get enough airflow with one case that is housing a extremely hot running setup? Simply relocate it to the top of the rack or allow a couple of spaces and use the vents on the top!

Solid case. By solid i mean it will laugh off the occasional bump when you are racking it or removing it. It takes some serious abuse to even scratch the professional powdercoating! Did I mention it was a solid case? I've loved the look of rackmount stuff and decided to build my first rack setup with the case and other parts from Istar (like the excellent ball-bearing sliding rails) and so far, have yet to be disappointed. I've got a rather limited rack cabinet (only 25" depth from front mounts to back mounts) and this case worked with plenty of space to spare. Your not going to mount some huge 12" x 12" motherboard in this case, but Istar makes other, deeper cases to fill that need too. Do your research. LOOK at the photo's, and don't whine because some mount kit for an ssd isn't in there. This *might* fit a 12 x 10 motherboard, but you'll have to ensure anything in the drive bays is not going to interfere. I have a 3.5 hotswap cage (also by istar) that made routing the sata cables a bit difficult, but completely doable. Also, TAKE NOTE! the screws that mount the cages are larger then standard case/expansion case screws. Don't confuse them. Look before you leap.

Even more outstanding is Istar's customer service. Read Other Thought's to see how they went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure customer satisfaction.

Cons: Zero. Nada. None! (Insert 20+ language translation here)

Overall Review: Would I buy Istar again? Without hesitation. Even if this case cost more, its worth it, particularly for the Customer Service.

Here's what happened:

Over a year of use i had to use some Usb flash drives (On my keychain) to get data on/off the machine. Well, i have a quick release for my usb drives (Solid metal Kingston) but I was impatient most of the time. Well, guess what? The usb port's took a beating because of my negligence. I must have left my keys dangling from the front a hundred times or more before i started having issues. 100% my fault. In addation, i bought a second case from other sources. It arrived with some of the rubber mounts cracked (I-star has since updated the design to remove this flaw)

So, gearing up to deal with the usual customer service fiasco, I emailed them. Explained the problems I was having, and offered to pay for the usb port i had broken.

What DIDN'T they do? Waste days and days getting back to me, Waste days and days asking for a sales receipt number, date of purchase, authorization code for the transfer of funds for the original purchase, ask for a million photos, ask 3 times for the buried pcb number, etc etc...and then claim its out of warranty and provide
no way, even with money to replace it. Yanno, the usual garbage you get when a company is politely forceing you to buy another of their product.

What DID they do? Asked for my shipping address and sent replacements. Didn't even ask for shipping costs.

Why would they turn down free money?

Because, with I star, customer satisfaction is #1. The buck stops with them. You might find similar stuff elsewhere, tho the list of rack stuff that allows for customization is a very short one. But you will never find a company as good as I-Star.

Owned for years, buying another

Pros: Holds by front brackets only, unlike another reviewer stated. I just have it attached by the front, no sliding rails. Bunch of drives in there and no issues with weight.
Easy open case, lots of room.

Cons: Heavy. Had to drill extra holes to fit a motherboard, but it was a dell mboard, so probably not a standard size.

Overall Review: I've been looking for another rack mount 4u case WITH rails or mountability without buying anything else. Unclear of what has that capability or not, so since I bought this one a while ago and it works, I'll just buy another one.

Great Home PC Rack Case

Pros: I was looking for a rack case to use for my music studio. If you're familiar with the music site that sounds like sugar water, then you've probably seen their "Creation Stations," and I believe this is what they use for their cases. I wanted their case so I bought this one, and I was right; it's the same thing.

It's very well constructed and the front handles are heavy duty.

Cons: No sliding rack rails included. It's a heavy case and you can't just mount it in a rack from the front rails and expect it to hold.

Also, an optional top handle toward the rear would make it easier to lift and move in and out of a rack; since I don't use rack drawer sliders and just have the case resting at the bottom of the rack it was difficult to push it back without scraping the bottom.

Overall Review: Free shipping would be awesome.

Very Pleased

Pros: After using several different cases for server builds, I found this to be my favorite. Nice, sturdy case with more than enough room for anything I might need to add. Easily fit a modular ATX power supply with ample room for cables even with an Icy Dock backplane in front.

Unlike some cases of a lesser build, the outside panel slides on easily, mounting holes are precision drilled and line up perfectly, and the HDD cages are easily accessible without having to take apart the entire case.

Cons: None so far.

Overall Review: I will definitely be purchasing additional units as needed.

Only a minor comment but the left 5.25 bays have to be mounted vertically rather than horizontally as they are on the right side. Not a big deal if you keep the doors closed or use them as Raid storage.

Great for the price

Pros: Large number of external 5.25" bays, pretty sturdy, well designed for the most part.

Cons: Single internal 3.5" drive bay is not in a good location.

Overall Review: Needed to upgrade a server, and had to have a case that could support a large number of 5.25" devices. This one offers 7 external 5.25 bays for under $100. Had no problems moving the guts of the server into this case, and had no problems regarding cable lengths or keeping things neat and organized inside. I did replace the stock fan with some Panaflo fans I had laying around, so I can't comment on its loudness. Only thing I can fault is that the single 3.5" internal bay is located at the bottom of the right drive bracket. Drive is crushed in there, with no airflow around it and no space between it and the 5.25" bay above it. Ended up mounting my drive in an unused 5.25" bay (using a 3.5 -> 5.25 adapter that is NOT included)...not a big deal. Overall though, I'm very pleased with this case, and will be buying at least one more.

Missing HDD Mounting Brackets

Pros: The size of the case works well for the space that I need it for. Lock for the doors on the front for security if you want no else to use the PC. USB connectors on the front. There are no front intake fans.

Cons: This server case does not come with 3.5" to 5.25" mounting adapters for hard drives. It only has one place for a 3.5" drive. I had to order the adapters separately.

Overall Review: Also, it doesn't have the best air flow.
