GMC R-4 Bulldozer Review

Conclusion:

I'm not entirely sure what to say about this case. It's got a few good features and several really bad ones. For instance, the two thermometers are a great feature. I also really like the red LED fan in the front. Then again, this can easily be installed on other black cases. I was disappointed with the lack of interior room. I admire that GMC attempted to redesign the 5.25" drive bay, but why did they have to waste so much space? If GMC had gone with the standard 5.25" bay, a solid three and a half inches could have been added to the front. That would have been enough room to hide more wires. I was also sad to see only one removable side panel. My main problem with this case is the lack of room. However, the Bulldozer did perform very well

This case is not for any one who considers themselves to be of the enthusiast level. I'd like to recommend this case to budget users, but cheaper and better cases can also be found. The lack of HDD and ODD bays will stop many mid-range users from purchasing this case. This puts the Bulldozer in a relatively awkward position. In the end, I'm not really sure if I can recommend it to anyone. If you're throwing together a secondary computer out of spare parts and want an inexpensive case that looks cool, then you might want to consider the Bulldozer. The case's light weight also makes it great for travel. If you're into LAN parties, the Bulldozer is definitely easy to transport. Using an mATX board and a smaller GPU would also increase the effectiveness of the Bulldozer. There's obviously things this case is good for, but I'll leave it to you to decide whether or not it would be good for you.

Pros:

  • Decent performance
  • Light weight
  • Cool front red LEDs
  • Removeable fan filter
  • LED displays

Cons:

  • No room!
  • Only two HDD bays
  • Only one ODD bay
  • One side panel
  • No wire management
