Sizing Up

In real life with a classic Ol' Blue Eyes album ...

Initial Impressions

  • Just 7l but spacious enough to easily work with
  • Nice classy aesthetics with AV deck styling
  • Good paint job
  • Minimalist buttons and LED lights, most appropriate for a HTPC
  • Rubber domed feet are another nice AV inspired touch
  • Good rigid build with metal support bar and multi-function tray
  • Lots of ventilation holes in the right places
  • Up to 6 x 2.5" storage devices in this compact case!

Can be improved...
  • Not tool free
  • No thumbscrews
  • 2.5" metal tray fixed 4 device design, individually stackable bays would likely allow roomier PSU cable management
