Fractal Design Array R2 Case Reviewed

Fractal Design Array R2

We reviewed the Fractal Design Array R2 back in September and concluded that, despite lacking an optical drive bay, it was a fine HTPC and media server case, eliminating the need for a separate, stand-alone NAS. Of course, the Array R2 would make a fine NAS case in its own right, which is how the folks at LanOC approached the Array R2 in their review. I would still love to see one of these cases loaded up with drives, but it sounds like the LanOC guys were pleased with what they saw.

A case that almost prides itself on being simple has very little to mess things up or cause problems once everything is put together. I was very impressed with the total weight of the Array R2 with our full build inside coming in lighter than even our past shuttle builds!
