I build PC's for Clients and this particular, picky, client wants a PC case that's will allow at least 4 hot-swappable HDD's with a price tag of $200 or less intended for Gaming and his home based Video Editing biz and he wants something clean and to keep the overall price down. I have some cases but they are Huge case made for workstations and servers and very expensive. The only cases I can find online are $230+ Lian Li's. Are there any other PC case manufacturers out there, Cooler master, raidmax, silverstone, apevia, that make such a case?
Maybe of interest to people looking for the same type of solution: http://www.satasite.com/4-drive-2-5-inch-sata-backplane...
This apparently allows installation of 4 2.5inch SATA2 drives into
a single 5.25inch bay.
The price is good, the storage/size ratio sounds awesome, but it
seems that these allow only SATA2 and not SATA3 transfer speeds.
Although they have active cooling, the fact that drives are close
together may mean that this solution is more prone to overheating
than others. Note that I do not own one of these, so cannot speak
