    As a Enlight supplier we have plenty experience of building machines with these cases all of which is very positive the build quility is very good and the space arrangement is adequate for a basic system, As we deal directly with Enlight be sure to let me know how many you were looking at purchasing for your school as I'm sure we can do something better price wise than misco!

    they certainly can beat misco. One thing to be weary about with small form factors, the majority (in my experience) do not have standard PSU's, so its a pain to change if you ever have too. We have been using Dell, HP and Viglen small form factors and they all have non standard PSUs. Just a thought you may want to consider.

    Pros;
    Smaller than towers, space saving
    Standard uATX
    Standard TFX v2 PSU

    Cons;
    Add in cards need to be low profile (vs tower)
    PSU is more expensive (vs standard atx)
    Holes in lid (Enlight PM-1501 specific, not on SCL RV80 )

    Will add some more when I think of them

    EDIT: It is our most popular form factor far out selling tower systems.

    Enlight cases are usually brilliant, our supplier used them for several years until they moved their service center to europe. They are nice solid cases in general with the exception of their All-In-One cases which are a real pain in the arse.
