I'm going to do my first ever build log with the 500r so I should have a bunch of photos and hopefully a little video smile.gif

at first glance the differences are in the (component-side) side panel, and the HDD bays on the 500R are in two sections, making them removable.

I am not sure if the 400R HDD bay is removable or not.

I am going to be ordering a 500R in the next couple of days so i cant wait to check it out in person biggrin.gif

May end up trading out my 600T for a black 500R once I see some reviews from the forum.
