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

  • Lamptron Case Handle (CH2) Review



    One of the hardest things about attending a LAN Party is hauling all of your stuff around.  For those lucky enough to own a carrying strap the process is pretty simple just install the 3 point harness and away you go.  The only down side is those straps are not designed to be a permanent fixture on your case but rather a temporary solution to a common problem. 

    An alternative would be to install a set of carrying handles, and of course the hardware store special just won’t do.  So we’ll look towards the modding community for a stylish solution and Lamptron has just the thing.
    The Lamptron Case Handles 2 are CNC machined from a billet aluminum block and have a thickness of 3/4".
    Overall dimensions:170mm x 54.7mm x 55mm  which roughly translates to 6.75” x 2” x 2”

    The handles are sold in pairs complete with stainless steel hardware and your choice of black anodized or polished aluminum.
    We’ve always enjoyed the contrast polished metal against a dark painted surface so for this review we’ll simply show you how easy the case handles are to install and what they look like in their finished form.
