Of course, it is hard to not associate this chassis with the BitFenix Prodigy that started this rounded SFF style of cases, but Sentey was also able to develop on that looks much different yet attractive on the outside, and still able to offer a horizontal motherboard tray internally.
There is plenty of space for all the drives you would need to run such a system, and even while we saw no need for the red bits, without any windows, nobody will ever notice if your parts do not match them. We also found the chassis to be solid, and even with all of the racks and bays being riveted in place, it isn't that hard to come up with the right hardware to fit the limitations imposed in this Micro-ATX tower design.
There are a few complaints we need to address, though. One and most importantly is the color mismatch of the steel bits from the plastic ones; this is just something that a lot of people will not deal with at all. Secondly, we do wish there was some modularity to this design. While there was enough room to get in everything we needed, if the lower HDD rack came out, you could use a normal PSU and even think about custom water cooling, even though only a single 120mm radiator is able to be put in as is. If the HDD rack came out, you would also have the option for another single radiator in the front as well though. Outside of those small issues, we really are out of things that really bothered us enough to discuss.
One thing we did notice in the photos, is that you do always have the option for the SS6-2441, or the all black version of this chassis, and from what we can tell the colors match well in that offering. Everything else that this version of the chassis offers you will find in the black version, so there will be no surprises. While we do think that the asking price of $59.99 is well worth the investment, there comes the problem of availability. As much as you may like this chassis, even if you want to opt for the black version, we are having a really tough time locating them on this side of the pond, and that has to be the biggest hurdle currently for this chassis, as Sentey did a nice job with this design, but being near impossible to obtain makes all the effort sort of moot at this stage.
If you can find one though, we would definitely advise this chassis for those looking to house a lot of power in a much smaller foot print.

The Bottom Line: Sentey might be a little late to the game with this style of chassis, but they prove that they are able to offer a very well laid out design. We just wish they were more readily available so that the rest of the US could enjoy this SS6-2440 Micro-ATX tower chassis.
