    Considering one of these for my case refresh later this summer. While I know this wouldn't deter any determined LAN thieves, it makes a pretty decent compromise between security and ease of use.

    I couldn't have said it better. *That* is what this piece is about.

I will take you to museums, and parks, and monuments, and kiss you in every beautiful place, so that you can never go back to them without tasting me like blood in your mouth. I will destroy you in the most beautiful way possible, and when I leave you will finally understand why storms are named after people.”

    Ok I see now x88x. But if your stealing from a US Gov. facility, I think you have bigger issues coming ^^.

    I now see the use at a LAN party if since most of us have expensive Keyboard/Mice.

    Well honestly. i wouldn't even mess with trying to screw driver your bunker.

    I'll just cut the cable with a multi-tool and solder me on a new USB end the next day if i really wanted to go out of my way and hook some one up scanless by stealing there USB periphials


    What i do see, is this having the potential to house USB thumb drives and SD media readers with SD cards or what be it.

    Those and the data on them are worth more to me then a 60$ logitech mouse. and with a lot of us using thumb drives for "speedboost" or just to have a removable media drive on the fly that contain valuable documents photos or other data. this would be useful as hell, but i wonder how deep is the recess cavity on the bunker unit.

    if it could in fact hold those USB thumb drives, then that would be really sweet since to any non computer geek it'd just look like a vent hole.


    It really is a neat idea and i'd defiantly extend my thanks out to NZXT with coming up with new concepts for computer periphrasis as they always do. from this bunker unit, to the Sentry external fan controller. they always make me wonder what the hell they are going to come up with next.

    If they could make the front bezel and face plate out of stamped steel or aluminum and charge a bit more for it (25$ is a good spot for a plastic lock box type deal) make the internal cavity a bit deeper to accommodate the USB media drives and what not. That would be a hell of a unit right there.

    I don't get the point of locking up USB ports?

    It's not as much locking up the port itself... although it does keep someone from plugging in a device.. It's more to lock down expensive keyboards, mice, headsets, or webcams.. so no one at say a LAN party can just unplug it and walk away if your rig is unattended. It's not necessarily a fool proof security device, but it would slow them down, and make you a less desirable target.
