PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH



Like many HTPC cases, the A380 has a low profile design. Many home theater components are black in color so this case will integrate well with other electronics. Let's start out by having a closer look at the front bezel.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Glacialtech did a good job maintaining a clean look while still providing access to the most frequently used ports for a HTPC build. USB ports will undoubtedly come in handy as will front audio ports.



I was pleased to see a built in card reader. It can accommodate CF/MD, XD/SM, SD/MMC and MS cards . Personally, I like to have a card reader in every HTPC I build but I've found that not all cases can accommodate an internal one.



The power button illuminates with a ring of blue light when on. The circle below it has a red HDD led behind it.



The optical drive area is cutout to allow the use of the included faceplate. A piece of double sided tape is included to stick the faceplate to the front bezel of the optical drive.
