    I'm definietly looking for 2.5" and 3.5" as I have a few of each that get shuffled around. I'll definitely check Icy Dock to see what they have, thx.

    I got a used Kinwin from WebsterXC on TPU, and love it. Have used for both 2.5" and 3.5" drives plus I get 2x USB 3.0 Front Panel headers with it. As with any SATA drive, if the disk is IDE, hot swap won't work and if Dynamic, you have to import using compmgmnt.msc.

    I want one for PC #2, I'm leaning towads the Syma (mainly because of price).

    I was looking for something self-contained, hence the drive bay. I don't want to have a something looking like a toaster sitting on my desk :)

    The HAF 932 has so much unused space, I only had an optical disk in the 5.25" drive bays before I added the Kinwin, and I still have 2 usable 5.25" bays, the 5th top one is taken up by hoses from the radiator.

    I just looked up the soprano... nice. Have been looking for cases that have multiple hot swap bays AND can accomodate a 360 radiator (on the inside).
