Akasa Max S review

Akasa Max S is not only the sole fanless NUC case to support an optical disc drive but it also comes with two front panels. Both slot loading and slim tray optical drives are indeed supported. A nice touch. Peter Donnell from eTeknix.com had the chance to review it, and he seems to like it.

"The build quality is as good as it gets. The main bulk of the chassis is milled from premium quality aluminium, which naturally looks stunning, but it’s also a damn fine material to act as a heat sink for the passive cooling features. Being able to run your system constantly without the whine of a fan is a welcome bonus, especially so for HTPC users, as any ambient noises from a system can be quite distracting while watching a movie, even more so in industrial scenarios where noise sensitive equipment is being used."

The Max S is available now in the UK, France, the USA, Czech Republic, Germany, Austria, Norway, and the United Arab Emirates.
