    Question Antec Super Lanboy

    What do you peeps think of this case?



    - Durable anodized aluminum finish
    - Clear side window
    - Front ports: 2x audio, 2x USB
    - One low-speed 120mm fan (rear)
    - One low-speed 120mm blue LED fan (front)
    - 9 Drive Bays:- External: 3 x 5.25", 2x 3.5", Internal: 4 x 3.5" - Individual drive trays with rubber grommets to absorb vibration
    - Free case-carrying strap

    Looks pretty nice IMHO. Dunno if it's a new one or if I've just missed it before. No previous posts found about it. Only £64.57 inc. from OcUK.

    Have any Hexus dudes reviewed this case yet? If not, will you be?

    Not bad! Looks good too, but I love the quote:

    Made from recycled fighter jets.*
    And at the bottom of the page:

    *OK, that's not really true. But it sure sounds cool.
    Anyway, where can you get one and how much are they? How does it compare to the £65 Lanboy?

    Think Misco do them at a reasonable price.... TBH I like them cause of the sideways HDD bays which allows easier tidying of the cables etc

    80 notes though, would a Sonata not be better at that price? Suppose it's not much more than £65 for the Lanboy though...

    I like all of them now!

    Looks much bigger and heavier than a shuttle. Can a shuttle type system be beaten for portability / lanning?

    Not bothered about the portability (though that's obviously what it's built for) but I just like the look of them!!

    But Shuttles heavily limit your expansion options and there are quite a few "do's and don'ts" associated with Shuttles. Yes, they are quite a bit easier to carry around, but you sacrifice expansion and ability for it.

    The Lanboy looks nice, but 4 5.25" bays are pretty much standard and I wouldn't be able to do without them.
