I would've preferred 1 more 5.25 bay. Then I could put a 5-drive hotswap bay in 3*5.25 slots and 1 for optical drive.

really its a nice case and good size for the price


as for the issue with the slot tabs
use a pair of pliers. grab and twist

to me they are "old school" :)
its how cases used to all be.

As for looks, I still like the look and style of the Antec 300. It is simple, and looks nice to me for a $50 case.
That was a REALLY bad example.. REALLY bad.

You just completely put a whole bad spin on people who own civics.

Just like not everyone is gonna do that with civic not everyone is gonna do this with a case.

Windows are yesterdays news and most people prefer cases with out them.

agreed ... and a loss of a 5.25 slot for a meager port bay was a poor design choice

I usually replace these port bays with something much more functional*, but with this design one couldn't mod the top bay back to a normal 5.25 slot (what a waste of space).

* a more functional front panel port (with a USB 3.0 port added above the esata port)
