One of the flaws of the case is the lack of airflow to the hard drives, but I'm managing. Adding two more drives to it in a couple of days. 5.5TB isn't good enough!

It's a nice case, but I don't know what I'm going to do when I run out of storage space. Maybe upgrade to a full-fledged server solution instead of glorifying the front-end so much. Blu-rays are big, 12TB fills up fast. (I have 5x3TB Raid 5 now).
