Silverstone Lascala LC13
Founded in the summer of 2003, SilverStone has quickly grown to become one of the more respected case manufacturers around. Their super-sleek and innovative designs have garnered a lot of attention from end users and quite a few awards from print and online publications.
While they make a lot of products such as Power Supplies, coolers, and tower cases, the one area where they have excelled is the HTPC case market. They actually have more HTPC cases than they do tower cases and release new and updated versions on a fairly regular basis. One of the newest of those HTPC cases is the Lascala SST-LC13, which I'll be looking at in this review.
The LC13 has an aluminum front panel and 1.0m SECC steel body construction. It has 2 5-1/4" drive bays, 2 external 3-1/2" bays, and 2 internal 3-1/2" bays. It accepts mATX, ATX, and eATX motherboards (though you must remove the internal 3-1/2" drive bay to install an eATX motherboard). It's also sized to fit in a standard HTPC rack and like many of SilverStone's cases, it's available in silver and black to match your other Home Theater components.
