Nearly all the edges are rounded, except for the
expansion slots. They still break away pieces, which is a cut on the
finger waiting to happen.
The hard drive bracket is removable, a very common
feature nowadays. Most of the time, these brackets remove
parallel to length of the case. I have always thought why
manufacturers did that. Why not just make it pull outwards and
towards you? Chenbro seems to think the same way as me:
It uses one screw to secure itself and
the tab acts as a release mechanism. It was easy pulling it
out, but putting it back was a bit of a battle.
The 5 1/4" expansion bays are roomy and
easy to work with. Unfortunately, these are not removable like
the 3 1/2" cage below it.
Right under the bezel intake are the
front extension ports. Cables are included to re-route your
audio, FireWire and USB to the front.
The motherboard stand-offs are cut from
the tray from the factory. The only downside to the tray
itself is that it is not removable. Not a major problem, but a
removable tray makes installation easier.
