Hardware review: Biostar iDEQ 200N SFF PC

There is a cheaper version of this box known as the Biostar iDEQ 200V based on a Via chipset.

A newer, but lower-end, replacement for this box is the Biostar iDEQ 210V Barebones.
The iDEQ 200N is a great looking box, finished in a kind of translucent silver. It also comes in black, but I have to say that I prefer the silver. The front fascia has a sliding panel that hides a single 5.25in bay and a 3.5in bay. As already mentioned, you're unlikely to need more than one optical drive these days, and the 3.5in bay can be used for a floppy if you feel you need one, although I think that most users will put a memory card reader in there.
