Introduction

For some, a case is just a rectangular box which houses hardware. But for others, it's just as important as the latest hardware. CasEdge, a member of the Foxconn group, began producing cases in 1995. They expect to ship 11 million+ cases worldwide in 1999. Unlike Addtronics or InWin, CasEdge is not well known for their products. However, they've still delivered a quality product and we had the opportunity to review it.

Installation



Usually, system transfers are pretty much painless and don't require too much effort. It took about 15 minutes to install a motherboard, 2 hard drives, 2 cd-rom drives, a floppy drive, connect the appropriate cables, and get the system up and running. The included drive rails and removable drive cage made drive installation a breeze. Snap on the rails, slide it in and you're done. Take out the 3 1/2" drive cage, screw in your hard drives, slide it back in, and that's done; simplistic and easy-to-do. The front panel is an easy on, easy off, "snappy" type. A simple thumbscrew in the rear is all it takes to remove the side panel and have access to anything you want inside. Everything was included in a small box, containing drive rails, a bag of screws, one 2-pin to 4-pin power supply converter cable, and some cover plates.
