I really like the top window you added, plus the wheels. It's awesome to see this older case still being used. If you ever feel like expanding the storage a bit, there are bays (for example from IcyDock, but other brands have it, like StarTech) to turn 3x5.25" bays into 5 drives rather than the 3/4 you have here and then you can use one of the 5.25" bays for 4, 6 or 8 2.5" drives.

Something like these would match your case:

There's a few more out there, some with red activity LEDs.
