After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.  I purchased in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain.  If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration. 

Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at

    Case Layout and Features

    From the initial unboxing the first thing that grabs your attention is the smooth black finish and unique design. The front is broken up with large Geometric shapes and helps distance itself from the boxy look common to the majority of the case on the market.

    Along the right side of the front bezel you will find the control area. Included with the standard HDD activity light, power light, reset button, and almost hidden power switch. The switch fits the style of the case and blends so well I missed it on my first look. There are also two front mount USB-2.0 ports along with the headphone and mic jacks to help eliminate the need to dig around behind the case.
    The geometric design is carried throughout the chassis and can be seen imprinted on both side panels and across the top.  Along the left edge of the top panel you'll find 2x USB 2.0 ports and a single E-SATA port to allow for easy hookup of external accessories.
    Residing behind the front panel door you will find the external drive bays with room for three 5.25" drives and a single 3.5". A note here to keep in mind, devices like fan controllers or anything which has knobs or switches may interfere with the door.
