  Highlights


A good home for your hardware:  Based on ATX form factor motherboard specifications providing a full 13x13” of surface area for total accommodation of all motherboards from micro ATX to large extended ATX (server) motherboards. The motherboard is perfectly secure on the upper shelf with a high friction rubberized standoff system that supports the motherboard 1/4" off the bench surface (accommodates CPU cooler back plates and increases air circulation). Nylon guide posts position the motherboard perfectly on the Tech Station.  AGP/PCI cards are securely locked in place with thumbscrews so the motherboard is safe yet available for hands-on work and is easily removed.  

Hard Drive Storage/Cooling Rail System: Slide the HDD's in/out on smooth non-conductive acrylic rails. Two standard 3.5" hard drives can be easily inserted, protected and cooled by rails suspended under the top shelf. One end of the HDD Rails open to catch air from the 120mm cooling fan, a nylon stopper keeps the drive from making contact with the fan.  The Large model can support an optional second set of HDD Rails to hold a total of four hard drives!

No loose AGP/PCI add-in cards!  The AGP/PCI support brace solves the problem of loose motherboard add-in cards, loose cards can damage circuitry.  The brace offers universal support for all add-in cards - blocking no cables or connections, and has some lateral flexibility to make adding/removing cards easy.  Nylon thumb screws twist into the top of the brace and are positioned at ATX form factor spec locations so the AGP card and six PCI cards can be locked in place.  The support brace can also be removed, flipped over and turned to support BTX form factor. 

Bottom shelf, load it up:  The lower shelf is for stacking the drives and power supply.  Includes a neoprene mat to make the entire shelf a non-slip and non-conductive work surface.  There is plenty of real estate here to hold optical, extra hard disks and floppy drives. 

Power the PC On/Off and monitor HDD activity:   Plugging directly onto the motherboard, The ATX Control Kit takes the place of the computer case power and reset switches, power and hard disk drive activity lights, and system warning speaker so that PC hardware can operate totally independent of a standard computer case.

Non-conductive materials:  The Tech Station is made of non-electrically conductive, scratch-resistant, high grade polymers. (The bench can hold over 150 lbs!)  Metal screws and brackets are not exposed in sensitive areas, the motherboard rests on protective rubber standoffs, the lower shelf has a non-slip neoprene work mat, and the test bench sits on non-slip thermoplastic rubber feet.  No worries of frying your hardware like with a metal bench.

Keep things cool:  A 120mm 12v fan positioned on the left side forcing air over heat sensitive components on the motherboard and the Hard Disk Drive(s) mounted under the top shelf.  A finger guard is included but the fan can accommodate one on both sides.

Lots of room to work: With the motherboard on the top shelf there are no height restrictions for CPU heatsinks and all the motherboard components can be changed very easily!  The height between shelves is 7” offering enough room for all your optical drives, power supply, and even more hard drives if needed.

Pros
Easy component swap, sturdy mechanical design
Cons
installation guide unclear about hole - screw assignment, oversized EATX boards collide with raiser board bar
Summary
After sorting out which of the platform boards was the upper and lower, in which orientation (some stickers on the board would be very helpful) I realized I could not use the bar for PCI board fixation with my SuperMicro X7DB8+. This MB is 13.5" wide, but since I had issues in another EATX case I guess its a EATX specification problem.

The other small nuisance is the number of "drive bays" - only two 3.5" drives fit in the railing. This is not sufficient for server test setups which include HW RAID disk configurations.

Pros
Completely open multi-shelf design makes access internal PC components extremely fast and easy, higher airflow than a closed case, this model allows you to install 2 more additional hard drives making it capable of holding a total of 4 hard drives, very sturdy design, instruction manual is a very clear/detailed english printout with colour photos and a parts inventory checklist, HighSpeed PC was very quick to respond/send a few extra unique pieces, holes are all pre drilled for all the screws included in the unit, swapping components on a system assembled to the tech station is a fast simple breeze.
Cons
Manual only comes in english so non-english speakers may have trouble, $60-$80 dollar difference between large and standard size Top Deck stations, only comes with 1 hard drive stopper so there's nothing to prevent drives from sliding back out the opening side, no way to securely fasten drives to the drive rails was provided, no holes were pre-drilled for the optional 2nd set of hard drive rails, no dust cover or anti-spill cover to protect the unit while not in use.
Summary
There was no way to securely fasten drives to the drive rails provided so I drilled holes in the rails to screw the bottoms of hard drives securely to the rail. It's not required but if you ever plan to move the station around (while not running preferrably) without removing the drives you better have some way to fasten the drives to the rails or else they'll slide out the opening.

It was extremely annoying and time consuming trying to drill holes for the optional 2nd set of hard drive rails and this seriously should be done for you because drilling by site is a royal mess and fruitlessly frustrating. At the very least markers to show where to drill holes for the optional 2nd set of drive rails.

These units could really use a clear acrylic box/cover to keep dust out when not in use AND to prevent anything from spilling into the unit.

Other than that I'm loving the unit, just wish it could be cheaper so that I can buy multiple units.

Pros
-easy access!
-first case that's not a case, neat
Cons
-PRICE!!! should be half the price!
-self-assemble, easy like ikea furniture
-only thing missing is a dust cover, should come with it imo:)
Summary

It's a fine case.. deck.. mmm yes.. lol , it gets the job done, and easy access to tune and adjust whatever you need to get to. Would be nice if it came with a dust cover since I want to keep this setup for a little bit longer..
I would give it 4-5 stars if it was in the $60-80 range.

Pros
Easy access to components.
Cons
Building Instructions could use a revamp
Summary
Bought this for my computer repair business and I love it! I can put components in it in a flash and no messing around! I'm quite impressed with the build quality and the effort that went into making something like this....with that said I found the holes that were pre drilled did not line up with my mini ATX motherboard so I drilled new ones and there hasn't been a problem. Love this thing! Would recommend to anyone that fixes computers for a living! I may even buy another, who knows?

Pros
Does what it's supposed to. Simple to use once it's assembled. Makes troubleshooting hardware problems SO much easier. great if you are trying different hardware combos.
Cons
Kinda pricey for what it is, materials probably cost less than $20 all together. Plus you have to assemble it yourself.
Summary
I love this product. Helped me solve a hardware issue that has been plaguing me for months. Also, I know I'll get more use out of it for years to come. Not much to say really as it's a pretty straight forward product. Not for everyone and I wouldn't recommend it for a permanent PC case.

Comment: The PC Enthusiasts at HighSpeed PC know all too well how difficult it is to keep everything inside the case when changes happen all the time. With today's advanced cooling systems requiring complete disassembly to install, there had to be a better way to allow quick access to your components whi
