Currently comprising SilverStone Technology's Lascala enclosure series are 25 media-center oriented cases. These HTPC cases range from nano-ITX to multimedia BTX enclosures. SilverStone's latest attempt at deriving an award-winning Lascala enclosure comes in form of the LC20 and LC20M. The Lascala 20 series boasts an aluminum front panel, geared for silent operation, excellent storage capacity, and superb multimedia capabilities. Like SilverStone's past Lascala products boasting an M-variant, the LC20M boasts a VFD panel on the front of the case as well as an IR receiver and remote control. The last time we had a SilverStone Lascala product in our labs was when we had first viewed the LC14, however, for your reading pleasure today we have up our thoughts from the SilverStone LC20M.

Features:

· Smooth aluminum front panel with contemporary touch
· Outstanding potential for silent operation
· Class-leading storage capacity with drive doors
· Superb multimedia capability

Of the SilverStone chassis' we have reviewed, they have been packaged quite meticulously, and the LC20M retail package is no different. On the exterior of the cardboard container are various views of the case as well as other pieces of information. Opening up the SilverStone box, inside the LC20M chassis was encased inside of a plastic bag, while providing the main level of protection was Styrofoam on two of the ends. Outside of the case were two cardboard packages that had contained the user's manual and the various pieces of hardware to get the chassis prepped for hardware installation. In the other box was the IR remote control. Contained on the CD was SilverStone's included multimedia software, which is designed for Microsoft Windows. However, SilverStone's LC20M product page does link to the Linux drivers for the Soundgraph iMON USB IR/VFD devices as well as the iMON plug-in for LIRC, and LCDproc. Kudos to SilverStone for linking to this resource from their product page. The LC20M is available in two models -- LC20B-M and LC20S-M for black and silver respectively, and the model we are looking at today being the black variant.
