    I really don't see the point of the product. This won't save me from taking off the side panel and stealing all the goodies. However, glad to see they have unique keys. I still carry around my key from a Thermaltake Soprano, and it opens all Thermaltake cases, so it is very handy!

    If someone is trying to steal something, it's very likely that they don't know much about computers. They'll probably try to steal the peripherals, realize that they're locked into the system, open up the side and not know what they're doing, throw their hands up in the air, and quit. Either that or they're smart and you're screwed. :laugh:

    So... how does this shut when I have my flash drive in it, with my special top secret information?

    doesn't look big enough to me:cry:

    and is that little slit at the bottom really big enough for cords?

    The panel will move back when the door closes. This will provide room so that the unit can close with your peripherals still connected. And when the door opens, the panel will come back out.

    If they really wanted to, they could still just cut the cord and solder a new connector on.

    I ike the look of this. Esp when it's closed and it hides the usb's. Makes it more sleek thats not plain. I'm buying this. I need and can use more usb's. Perfect match for my m59.

    I've been liking alot of what nzxt has been doing lately.
