15 Case Power Tower Round-Up

The Hazards Of Installing 5.25" Drives

To install a DVD drive in the Casetec 1020, you first have to remove the front plate from the drive bay. When you bend the metal plate back and forth, it will snap off at the breaking points, leaving sharp edges. The 5.25" drive bays can also be hazardous to your hands: the edges are razor-sharp, enough to cause injury. Casetek should address these problems immediately.

Parts have to be snapped out of the case before you can install a DVD drive or burner.

The breaking points leave behind sharp edges, increasing the risk of injury considerably

Scrape against this, and you'll lose a piece of skin

    I find it admirable that an article so old is still kept alive. Recently acquired one of this cases in excellent shape at a garage sale and wanted to know more about it.

    Thanks to this article and the great dedication of this website I have been educated. Kudos to you all.
