Detailed Exterior Features
The GS-6500 is manufactured using SECC steel, meaning that it is protected from rust and corrosion by an electro-galvanizing process. The molded plastic parts felt solid and had a very nice finish.
All of the steel was painted black with an extremely glossy finish. The case covers can be a little bit tight when trying to close them, especially from this right side as shown here, but the latching mechanism gives a solid lock in place feel.
The top tray houses the card reader, shown here with a much better view. This top tray really looks great in the dark with the LEDs, and Sentey deserves praise for this. However, a couple of USB 3.0 ports would have been nice here.
This is the decorative left vent cover. A screwdriver is required to remove this from the left case cover so that you can reach the filter. Also, the large outer slits, though attractive, will allow air to bypass the filter completely.
Here's the DVD/CD cover exposed to show the spring and internal mechanism. So, essentially, your DVD player mounts in the usual way, and the door cover attached to the bezel overlays the DVD player. Pressing the button at the bottom right of the cover, mechanically presses the DVD button, and opens the cover. The spring mounted to the door allows it to automatically close once the tray is retracted. The push button covers can be removed, for those users who dislike the idea of a messing with an added door mechanism.
Here we see the bottom of the case at an angle. The underside of the Sentey Burton is completely painted. The mounting feet are sufficiently tall enough to leave space to allow the PSU fan to vent properly on an even surface, but might not be tall enough for shag carpet.
