Otaku PC did a reviewage of Xaser II 5000 Plus from ThermalTake :
The case is impressive in appearance, the lightly textured black paint matches the plastic front bezel perfectly. The full width hinged locking front cover is of extremely high quality, a 3 piece assembly of anodized aluminum. The base piece contains the chromed lock, and a sturdy spring clip to keep it shut securely even if unlocked. It is countoured to the curve of the case bezel, drilled - with plastic rods inserted to allow viewing of the LED's. The 2nd piece is a 4mm thick red anodized insert for appearance. The 3rd is the decorative central plate, black anodized and countoured to the curve of the assembly. Once locked, the power switch and drives are secure behind this barrier. Checking with tacky putty revealed approx. a 16mm clearance between the drives and the locking cover. If you have some basic skills with a dremel - or a talented friend, you could drill the plastic drive rails to accomodate further adjustment if necessary. Elegantly designed and finished, this piece cost more than a couple of bucks to make.
