Addtronics W8500 Workstation Chassis
What is there to say about a case? Well, that all depends on the case I guess. Sure they all serve a purpose, usually something close to housing our toys. What if, and yes this is purely hypothetical, you wanted to do one of the following?

  • Hide small children.
  • Give the household pet a household of it's own.
  • Have some extra storage for all your old 8 tracks.

Thank the hardware gods, because Addtronics has a beast of a case you won't want to miss. Say goodbye to all those puny cases that leave little room for hardware, and even less to work inside of. The W8500 WTX chassis is about one of the larger workstation housings available. Size isn't the only good thing about it, it comes with all sorts of goodies to satisfy almost any hobbyists appetite. You just can't beat having a lot of room to stuff all that gear in, and have plenty left over to move about. Here are some tidbits straight from the Addtronics website in the form of specifications....

  • Two Swing-Open Butterfly Door for Easy Access To Chassis
  • Washable Front Filter To Keep Dust Out
  • Locking Front Panel and Main Chassis For Security
  • Can Hold Up to 9 Fans For Maximum Ventilation.
  • Adjustable Height Base For Uneven Surfaces and Luxury Caster
  • Use Drive Rails For Ease Of Drive Installation

  • Removable Metal Shielding For All Exposed Drive Bays To Meet FCC Class B
  • Excellent EMI Solution
  • All Edged Deburred For Safety
  • Zinc Plated Treatment ยท S.E.C.C. Steel Sheeting
  • Power Supply: WTX, ATX, PS/2. Safety: UL/CSA/TUV/CE/CB/N/D/FI/S

"But what does it all mean Basil?" you are wondering. Hang on, there is more info to come on the next page as far as specifications go, but for a little teaser to keep you going, here is a cute "little" pic of the monster in question.
