Most Favorable Review

Great small server case

CHENBRO ES34069-BK-120 Black SECC Pedestal Server Chassis 120W
CHENBRO ES34069-BK-120 Black SECC Pedestal Server Chassis 120W

Pros: Solid all around build Small size Atom ITX D510 board fit in with no problems at all Hard drives slid into place without too much force

Cons: Front cover is slightly weak (seems like the only weak part). It locks, but it really wouldn't take a lot to snap it open anyway, so that's only a minor deterrent.

Overall Review: I've been running this case as a headless server on my home network since I received it. Tight fit in some spots, but it does not inhibit airflow or put pressure on any components. I did not use the 2.5" hard drive bay or the slim optical drive bay, but they appear to provide enough space to not cause any problems as long as they are installed last. I'm using hard drives in all four hot swap bays and all the lights are working correctly and showing through the dark front panel. I am very happy with the case and I will most likely purchase this one or another similar model again for building up home or small business servers in the future.
