First off, this is not a case that you will be able to lugg around
to your local LAN parties. This is mammoth case coming in at just about
600 mm tall (that's about 24.5" for we Americans). And its heavy too. I don't
have a weight system that gives the weight when full, but it weighs a hefty
35 lbs when empty. It's so big in fact, that I forced to modify my
self-constructed oak desk for it to fit; this was not taken into account
against the case, since it was an oversight on my part. :)


With that out of the way, lets talk about some of the good points of
the design. The front of the case has a swinging door that covers the
power switch, floppy bay and the five 5.25" bays. Being that this case
was original designed for servers, the power button ws hidden away so
that the clumsy employee didn't shut down your business on his way to the
break room. A lock is also located on the left side of door that can
prevent those without one of the two included keys from turning it on
or off intentionally, if you have this sort of problem where you
work or live. The many slots below the door on the front of the case are
entry ways for air to enter in the front of the case. This makes
cooling the case much easier since you can pull in the cool air
from the front area.

There are 5 total lights on the top of the case, 1 for the power and 4
for IDE or SCSI devices, depending on your system setup.

Both sides of the case use the sliding doors effect
for the easiest entry to the inside of the case. All
of the bays are easily accessible from both sides, so there
are no problems getting screws into the proper placement.
