When I was first contacted about reviewing this particular case, I was ready to see what improvements would be made to a winning design. While there are still a few minor issues not addressed, the overall concept works very well.
If you're accustomed to the old Dragon series case, we can give a simple recap by stating there is an extra optical bay, an extra hard drive bay, the addition of a hard drive mounting system that is excellent (but without the grommets included) and a removable motherboard tray. These improvements make for a very pleasant time when installing a fresh system. It also makes it simple to keep your rig updated with the latest and greatest gadgets.
Of course, a few simple additions could have also been made to make this an outstanding product. This would include those rubber grommets mentioned above, a full compliment of installed 80mm fans, and even a couple more USB ports on that front panel. With most modern boards coming with six or more USB ports available, it seems a waste not to use them all.
Bottom line... If you've handled the old Dragon (or comparable) series enclosures before and want to know if this is a viable update, the answer is a resounding YES! The added features included will make your installations and updates a breeze and offers enough cooling to handle most systems out there. If you're taking a first look at this design and are in the market for a tower/server case with huge amounts of potential, then you're also in luck since this enclosure will certainly fulfill a vast majority of your needs.
Removable motherboard tray standard
Decent and workable cooling potential
Plenty of drive bays for all size devices
Still has a very good exterior appeal
Only two fans included
Front fan ports not filtered
HDD grommets not included
Too many optional items, more needs to be standard
