Pros
Looks Great
Cons
Expensive, Noisy and a Serious design flaw: Hot-Swap hard drive may push backplane instead of seating properly.
Summary
I wasted 6 months trying to make something out of this casing.

First unit I got was sent back to NCIX/Chenbro because I was only able to make 1 or 2 hard drive works at best. I tested with many motherboard, raid controllers, hard drive brand and always got the same result.
I sent the case to RMA

When I got the replacement 6 weeks later, I had the exact same trouble so I decided to dismantle the case and test the backplane.
THEN I realised that there is actually 2 backplane and one of them can easily bend because there is no screw in the middle to keep it flat.

SO keep this in mind, remove the front panel and hit the hard drive tray on the front until your hard drive is properly inserted... not a good thing.

Also, most of the time you have to wrestle to get the hard drive out of the case (worse with Seagate).

Pros
- Hot-Swap drive bays
- 2.5" internal hard drive mount point (for boot drive)
- small footprint
- nice variety of activity LEDs on front (2 LAN activity LEDs was a nice touch.)
Cons
- Internal 4-in-1 media card reader is an optional add-on that needs to be ordered separately ... should be included as standard, imo.

- Optional 32bit PCI Riser Card should be standard. Shame on you, chenbro.

- Weak, plastic clips on front bezel, that break easily even while following removal instructions in the Owner's Manual (which you have to download as PDF from Chenbro's website.) One of those pieces of plastic snapped off at the end (bottom piece on left side) ... although, it's nothing that a bit of Krazy Glue can't fix.
Summary
I must say, I was a bit hesitant to buy this at first, due to the price, but after reading a few home-based, DIY NAS "HOW-TO's" that listed this case, as well as checking out some reviews on it, I'm glad I bit the bullet and bought one.

Some notes to keep in mind:

- The unit comes with a Slimbay IDE-to-40pin IDE adapter, so there's no need to purchase separately, in case anyone is planning to use an IDE Slim DVD burner to save the usage of a SATA port for a hard drive.

- 4 SATA cables are included, and already plugged in to the SATA backplane, but they are not right or left angled. So, depending on the mobo, and if you get an add-on SATA controller adapter to add more SATA ports (i.e.: if mobo has only 2 on-board,) then you will have to keep this in mind, as you might need to get SATA cables with angled connectors, as space is tight.

- There is a 180W power adapter, that I believe can be ordered from Chenbro. The power distribution unit in the case is 180W DC, so it should work with the case.
