Maintainability console valued at eight points out of ten. Of the benefits of the design highlights iFixit easy replacement hard drive, and the lack of glue, which greatly facilitates the process of assembly and disassembly of the console. In deficiencies recorded location fan and heatsink (to clean the dust from the cooling subsystem or to replace the fan, you need to disassemble almost the entire console), and the sharp edges on the metal lattice to which the components are mounted.
