One of the first things I noticed about this case, is how light it was. This comes from the case being all aluminum. This is an especially nice feature for those who are into LAN parties.
When you pull the top cardboard piece out, the anti-static/cable organizer is set snugly into the top. The case itself is wrapped inside a plastic bag, to further protect it in shipping (from water damage, etc).
Pulling out the case by the handle on the top and removing the plastic, we get our first real look at the case.
The only thing I found wrong in the packaging, is that one of the hinges to the front door was tweaked, causing it to sit at a really weird angle. But opening the door all the way moved the hinge back into alignment. Its already been fixed in the above photos.
The main case controls are at the top front of the case. Power, reset, a power indicator, and a hard drive activity light are all here. There is also a little door that opens to give you 2 USB, 1 firewire, headphones, and microphone connections.
Overall, this is a VERY attractive case. Its actually much more attractive in person, and at this point in the process, I couldn’t wait to get started. So even through it was still on my kitchen table and not on my workbench, I opened her up.
