Default What is a motherboard tray?

I've never seen one of these in a PC case but I keep reading they are very nice. Is this something you can mount the motherboard on before you put it in the case? I am buying a couple of these cases:

But I read they do NOT have a motherboard tray. Is this really a big deal?

Any help is appreciated.

motherboard tray is just a removeable tray to put the mobo on so its easier to fit in, i dont have one in my case, and it just makes it a little easier to put the mobo in.

Motherboard trays are nice, but if someone is complaining about not having one it's because they have become too lazy to just stick the motherboard inside the case. I personally like them, but i wouldnt go out of my way to get a case that has one.

With the way some people went on and on about the trays, I was starting to think I was missing out on something very helpful. I'll just stick with the case I was going to buy, thanks for the help.

Yeah tray's are nothing special,The only up side is when first building the comp or having to take the board out for something,Just slide's right in and out.

Slide in and out? Do you mean the tray is put in from the side, as opposed to lowered in from the top? If from the side, that would be pretty neat.
