Overall I was impressed with the Opus MT-200 enclosure. While the general design is not unique, they have managed to add in some very enticing features that make it able to stand on its own as a quality case.
Most impressive is the titanium finish that gives a mirror shine to the entire box. You can make your own decision regarding the checkerboard pattern, but the overall effect is stunning. Cooling has also been addressed in a satisfactory way since you can have upwards of four 80mm fans and one 120mm fan. Even in enthusiast rigs this is a good deal more than many other alternatives are offering. I also liked the smaller window that hides the swinging arm for the side-mounted fan. It shows the folks who created this case are thinking like we do.
On the down side, though, we find absolutely no fan filtration for incoming airflow. With dust and dirt being major killers of performance rigs, this is just too important to neglect. While this can easily be fixed by the end user, this shouldn't be necessary since the enclosure is being marketed as an enthusiast box. Also of note was the fact that no fans came with the default configuration of this case. A small item, but new power users don't always have that stockpile of spare fans sitting on a shelf like some of us veterans.
As far as price is concerned, you can pick one up directly from the Opus website for US$80. Even without a power supply, this price falls well into what we would expect to pay for an enclosure with far less to offer than this model.
Bottom line... If you're in the market for a new case and want something that sets you apart from the crowd, then allow me to introduce you to the Opus MT-200. With a stunning exterior finish and features to spare, you'll find yourself with a unique look that stands out in a crowd. If, on the other hand, you are keen on a RAID system for your enthusiast rig, you'd be best to look at something else.
