    Not bad at all.. Although someone's gonna have to do a LOT of convincing to get me to sacrifice one of my beloved 5.25 bays :D

    I haven't had that problem since switching to the AOpen H600A case... still have one free (never before has that happened!) :D

    I have my case stated in my sig.. I love it so far, and plan to make a 'few' case mods :D : party ha

    BTW, I have two open drive bays out of 4. 2 are consumed by a DVD 16x and a CDRW. I would definately consider getting two of those removable racks, if I had the extra HD to switch between the two systems. Right now I'm working with one on each. Wouldn't want the two installations of XP to collide with each other when I tried to use one of the drives.

    liked the review. and i myself swear by these things [although I prefer the all-aluminum ones with 3 fans (one in the back and two up front)].

    I use them to multi-boot different operating systems on a single PC, just set your BIOS to detect the boot drive and you can use all your old spare but still functional hard drives to boot other operating systems [ie. Linux flavors, BSD, Solaris, XP, NT, ME, whatever]. They can also be handy for backups too.:thumb:

    as you can see these have two small 40mm fans up from of the inner rack [or cartridge as some people call them] and a single fan at the back of the base [the part that mounts inside your 5.25" bays].. the fans and the aluminum do a pretty decent job of cooling the drives.
