i got tired dealing with my computer case. it's flimsy and really just a pain to work with.

I need some bench, pref. on wheels and with space for 3-4 hard drives
Looking for something cheap, around $50 :)

EDIT: I FOUND WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR. THANK YOU!

I always wondered if on/off switches are diy on these benches or are they usually built in?

sometimes they are there, like on a regular case, with long cable to connect to motherboard.
but sometimes they are just really short connectors, so it's like power button on the motherboard itself :)

I have 2 of these Sunbeam tech stations. They are very well built for the price. Much better than the "Highspeed" tech stations they replaced. In fact, I had a Dimastech review sample that I chose to sell, rather than replace the sunbeam. That's saying alot too, since the Dimastech costs more than twice the Sunbeam.

I do have one extra Sunbeam sitting here that you could have for less than the Newegg price.It is the blue model, but the blue is very subtle. Just do a search for some of my FS thread pics, if you'd like a good look at it.

i thought about designing my case or bench, but then i would have to hire someone to actually make it because i no tools or much experience and ... that will turn out to be expensive because of man hours it takes to build this thing
