The Level 10 GT Snow Edition comes with a variety of features. Immediately noticeable are two USB 3.0 ports on top of the chassis, as well as an eSATA port. This is supplemented by four standard USB 2.0 ports on the front of the chassis. Also, just in front of the USB 3.0 ports on top of the chassis are three buttons. One allows you to change the speed and brightness of the chassis’ fans and fan LEDs to high, and another allows you to set them to low. The third button changes the LEDs to different colors and light patterns. The options are blue, green, red, spinning while alternating between the three, alternating between them all (without spinning), and all lights (keep in mind this option does not turn off the light on the power button).
The chassis also included a headphone stand that can attach onto the right side of the chassis, which allows the user to store their headphones in a convenient location when not in use.
The chassis also has five removable hard drive trays which can be locked using a key included with the chassis. The removable hard drive trays have been extremely useful when doing formatting or simply copying information over to other hard drives. One thing to note is that the trays do not have tool-less drive retention, they require the use of screws to attach hard drives. Oftentimes using screws provides a more rugged and reliable system than a tool-less one. However, in this case the goal is to have hot swappable drives that can easily and quickly be added and removed, and to that end a reliable tool-less design would be beneficial.
