Fantastic design that allows for a lot of natural air to flow over your drives. Perfect for high usage with the built in changeable fan which is also extremely quiet. Great choice of materials for a really strong chassis. Mega easy to add and remove drives and overall use is so simple.


The design may not appeal to some
