    They should have made the plate with the harddrives swivel down using hinges at the bottom, and include the proper length SATA and Power cables so that they do not need to be removed.

    Yes, would be a much better layout. Hide the cabling, and wouldn't take a great deal of work to have the central vertical channel available for mainboard ATX/EPS/fan/front panel cable routing.
