PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH
My initial impression was that the F-35 looks like no other enclosure I've used, but that's a definite plus. The color and design are unique and eye catching, and the construction is sturdy. The outer shell of the F-35 is plastic.
A 50mm fan is found on both sides of the enclosure to provide cooling, and they are incorporated into the design of the unit well. It would be easy for large fans like this to be an eyesore, but in my opinion they are a nice addition to the aggressive styling.
There are no buttons on the front of the unit; just a vertical power/activity LED that illuminates in blue. A clean, uncluttered look is a good thing.
At the back of the unit is a port for the power cable, an on/off switch, and a USB 2.0 port. I would have liked to see an eSATA port here also.
