Rated 4 out of 5 by SeriousSam Good unit, minor tweaks would make it great
I bought this for use in the lab at work for testing primarily Mini-ITX boards with a few ATX ones thrown in. This was the only test bench certified for use with Mini-ITX, so that was why I bought it over some of the others available.
Setup is relatively straightforward, although some more detailed instructions on component placement might be useful for those newer to system building. The build quality is sound, if a little flimsy in places, but everything lines up as it should and the flexibility causes no issues under normal use. There are no power or HDD LEDs, which would be useful to have, and there is no support bracket for PCI-E cards so graphics cards with large coolers need supporting by hand.
Overall though, this does exactly what you would expect, and it's excellent value compared to some of the other offerings available elsewhere. It has certainly made swapping out motherboards much quicker and less fiddly. Definitely recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by James Very quick to setup
Secure enough in place for motherboard modifications
Room for cable management within the chassis
Good build quality
5.25" bays contain nothing for holding 3.5" or 2.5" drives
A bit costly for what it is

Rated 4 out of 5 by Will Simple design, power and reset switches useful for boards without then
No support for expansion cards mean they flop about,2.5" HDD mounting awkward unless you already have bay adapters
