AOpen A600A @ TrustedReviews
"So how easy is it to build a system in the A600A? Well, itís not the simplest to put together as you canít slide the motherboard tray out, but there is plenty of space inside. Itís even roomy enough to install the hard drives after youíve fitted the motherboard, which can sometimes be a problem in cases where the drive bays are down at the bottom of the chassis. AOpen has also added a quick release latch for the front of the case that makes it easy to remove. This has to be done so you can slide in the 5.25in drives as well as any external 3.5in drives."
