    Posted: 01 Mar 2021 at 11:25am
I just placed an order for a Slade Engineer workstation and was wondering if there's any other cases with the side panel window/glass that may be compatible.
Would like to display it in our office and have some lighting on the inside as well.
Anybody out there have these in their office? Do they attract attention or do they become an eyesore after a while?
I'm a draftsman using autocad.
thx.

In workstations, there is small, medium, and gigantic. The Slade is all business, the Velox, for $298 more, is the one available you inquire of for a touch of bling. The Aventum, I believe, is something on the order of $700+, and weighs in at some 90 pounds before the parts go in!

The Velox has the side window, and you may order some "Internal Lighting" for free, or $29. I really lack details about the $29 DS option. The free one is a simple led strip that fastens to the inner perimeter of your window. It comes with a remote that allows for over 300 combos of lightshow, can be a single color, or turned off completely. You may also order RGB case fans that will be always on. The Velox is reputed to have excellent airflow characteristics, but the Slade performs well also.

The RGB fans could indeed become a distraction, but the lightstrip could be changed from time to time for variety as long as it lasts. Obviously, that's a variable.

Thats a Cooler Master case. Silencio S600 has the window. They probably sell a window to you.

Thanks for the feedback.

Digital Storm will custom order any part they can get for you. It requires special handling for them, so there is a fee charged, but a windowed "Slade" would not cost nearly as much as the upgrade to a Velox.
