Pros
cost
major structural components are sturdy
Cons
lacks supermicro-level QC
no bells or whistles
drive trays are a bit flimsier than I'd like
stock 80mm fan wall was a poor design choice
Summary
great case, I'll probably buy another at some point.
this case is half the cost of its supermicro counterpart for a reason. even if you pull the cost of the redundant psu out of it, there's still a significant price difference and you'll see that difference if you've ever worked with supermicro rackmounts.
still extreme bang for buck if you can live with tiny quirks.

Pros
Finished my build without any cuts.
Trays all function well.
Cons
Fans are crazy loud
Summary
Might not have the same quality as a supermicro case, but for the price this cant be beat. Works well for ZFS with IBM m1015 controllers.
I purchased the optional 120mm fan wall and used a fan controller to get rear fans noise down.(I put it where you would mount the redundant power supply.) You may not want to do this unless you are using low power hard drives.

Pros
-Strong build
-Inexpensive
Cons
-None really beside the fact that's it's heavy... but hey how often do you move a server case...
Summary
Overall I feel happy about this purchase. It's a nice server case with 24 slots for hdds for such a low price.

Pros
Great hard drive density in 4u
Cons
Loud without taming the included fans
Summary
Been wanting to upgrade a storage server to this case for a while, finally did, and no regrets. Machine is working perfectly, and after replacing fans and using a 120mm fan wall, its nice and quiet. No issues with trays, or drives lining up to the backplanes.

Pros
Super low price point
Excellent quality
24 drive bays!
Cons
Loud, but can easily be remedied by using the 120mm fan bracket part and using silent 80 and 120mm fans.
Summary
Cheaper than other alternatives and will yield better performance if paired with the proper equipment. I use the unit with ARECA 1882IX-24. 12 drives RAID6 yields stable 1.72GB/s read and 997MB/s write. Raid 60 constant 2.7GB/s read 1.28GB/s write, tested with WD Red 3TB. Unit is well made and easy to work with. Also if you are using it in a home environment, it is a good idea to spend 10$ on "Norco 120mm Fan Bracket". Bottom line, if you think of going Supermicro to save money or get better performance, you are probably making a mistake.

Pros
Affordable and 24 bays!
Cons
Fans are very loud
Summary
I'm very happy with my purchase. It works great a year later there's no issues of any kind with any fans or the SAS backplane.

Pros
The amount that you get for the price is the most attractive feature. From the research I've done, you'd be hard pressed to find another company offering an equivalent product for less than half the price.
Cons
The rear exhaust fans are extremely loud.
They should have included the 120mm fan wall by now. At least the stock 80mm fans on the fan wall are not too noisy.
Summary
The unRAID community has really taken to this case, and it's not hard to see why. It's very affordable, and the metal work seems decent, and c'mon, it's 24 bays.

The only real downside is the cooling. If you don't have a soundproof dedicated server room, the rear fans are simply unacceptably loud. Fortunately, the fan wall in the middle of the case seems to be doing the job at keeping my drives at around 35C, and those 80mm fans aren't too bad when the lid of the case is on.

One thing to note is that Norco's quality control concerning the SAS backplanes has been reported to be severely lacking. I opted for the ExpressRMA, and though I didn't need to use it, I don't regret shelling out for it. I'm not sure if this new revision is just better, or if I got lucky.
