earlier, the green sockets and connectors are all UV reactive, which means they
glow under UV light. In addition to this, the accompanying rounded floppy/IDE
cables are encased in a UV reactive translucent plastic, so they also glow under
UV light. Pretty cool when everything is all hooked up and glowing!
rounded cables feature metal braiding on the inside, which A) looks kinda cool,
and B) just might provide some decent EMI shielding... or not. I'm not too
certain if that is really necessary.
Along side all of this gear, is a FrontX Drive bay; a device which brings ports
to the front of the case so you don't have to reach around to get at your audio,
fireware, or USB sockets. It's a pretty basic device, but one that gets the job
done, and feels relatively well built.
finally we get to the PC Transpo case carrying strap, which in my opinion is the
coolest "extra" that's included into the LANParty package.
remember a few of my non-computer friends calling me a geek because I use to
drag my PC to my friend's place to play games on weekends during university....
If I had one of these case straps it certainly would have made my LAN Parting
days much easier.
'PC Transpo,' as DFI call it, has a pre molded grip which is comfortable to
grasp. If you've got a steel case full of drives which is too heavy to carry,
there is a shoulder strap as well. The PC Transpo also includes two pockets, one
which is deep enough to hold your keyboard.
have liked to have had a velcro lock on both the pockets as it's possible
something could fall out during Transportation. Other then that, I'd just like
to tip our hats to DFI for including such a useful accessory with their
