One important thing to note here is that, with the door open, the eject button on the front of the door loses contact with the buttons on the optical drive. As a result, the only way to close the drive is to push on the tray so it will retract. This is a factor because some optical drives will close the tray when you push on them, and some will not. If you have one of the latter drives, you probably don't want to use it in this system. You can pull the drive cover open farther and reach in to touch the drive's close button manually, but having to do that would certainly get old after, say, the first time.
You can see that the mirrored panel actually covers the 3.5" bay, along with the power and hard drive lights.
