Silverstone LaScala LC18: Server Rack with Hi-Fi Allure

 

Silverstone's LC18 case proves that server enclosures don't have to be ugly. This 19 inch enclosure includes a built-in touch screen, which makes ...

Still, you can't expect too much from this small display. Simple dialogs or confirmations are about all it can handle: text processing or games really don't work in this format. The final version of this device should support resolutions up to 800x600...

pretty sweet for HTPC

 

This makes for a great htpc case. It looks nice from the front - like other home theater gear - and the touch screen gives you a lot of flexibility. Also it has native Vista support - which sees it as a tablet.

The display is is very nice. Crisp sharp images - and supports pretty high resolutions as well as wide screen ratios. Pretty high quality overall

Price... it's expensive! Also I've noticed that the touch screen can be off a milimeter or 2 from where the click occurs on the screen - after about 2 minutes I was used to it - but it was a minor nuisance

Great package

 

Very well engineered! Well placed vents for good air flow with out noisy high volume fans.

Did not find anything wrong!

This case is the Rula Lenska of the HTPC world - famous for being famous

 

This unit is fine for shelf-top/desk-top/counter-top. It is not suitable for home audio setups involving racks. Unless you are buying a rackmount shelf to hold it. For something that is supposed to be "front and center" in your pro-audio setup this...

Nice design. LCD is a excellent feature

Does not support a variety of ATX boards (particularily server boards which are bigger) ; Some power supplies will need an extension cord to fit ; Front door (floppy) falls open if you sneeze. I suppose a stronger magnet would have been a good idea...

The Best!

 

Touch screen, excellent fit and finish.

No front USB/firewire ports.

Product Specifications

When SilverStone engineers set out to create an HTPC enclosure with an integrated touch screen, they quickly realized the need to do more than just dropping a screen in front of an ordinary case. Users of cases at this caliber will demand compatibility with the best hardware components in the world. Therefore, an aluminum chassis was designed from the ground up to meet these demands. The LC18 can house any CPU with minimal noise thanks to its free-flowing dual 80mm exhausts and large intake vents. An innovative hard drive bracket was also created exclusively for LC18 to ensure top of the line graphics cards and capture cards can be used with little or no sacrifice in hard drive space. The precisely calculated distances between hard drives will ensure safe running either passively or actively (by mounting bottom feeding intake fans) for any hard drives installed. This exceptionally powerful chassis is then used to hold a HDTV-like 7" touch screen with brilliant wide-aspect ratio resolution for clear text and undistorted images. For the most creative users who demand the best, the LC18 is a perfect complement for either home or work.
