5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Starter Case

Cons: not that many cable management slots to feed wires through.

Other Thoughts: Great first starter case for building your first PC build.

5 out of 5 eggsVerry Nice

Pros: This case is vary well put together, and is well laid out. I was impressed out of the box, it has a nice matte finish that wont scratch up easily. It has a reasonable amount of cable management options, and even case with zip ties.

Something that was not clear in the description is that it does have a spot to mount a ssd drive. its on the bottom of the case right behind were the PSU goes.

Cons: I like this case aalot, these aren't really cons but things to be aware of, and most of these are nit picky...

Limited space behind back panel for cable management
Poor placement of ssd mount ( its placed so that there is no place to plug in the sata and power without running them right out in the open)
No included intake fan
The instruction guide is mostly in chinese and is hard to understand (not a problem except for determining which screws to use for what)

Other Thoughts: Over all I would buy this case again ( though I would probably go for the upgraded version that has usb 3.0 on the top of the case) its priced very reasonably for what it is.

5 out of 5 eggsLove it

Pros: The color goes well with the rest of my hardware on the inside, and the blue out line looks sweet. Love the spot for a second fan in the front. Was still able to hid a bit of cords on the back side, kinda tight but it works.

Cons: None really

Other Thoughts: Oh no the inside is not painted... oh well

4 out of 5 eggsOverall good

Pros: Looks good, decent cable management, cheap, perfect size

Cons: Only 1 fan, and the HDD access light doesn't work.

Other Thoughts: Overall if you're going to get this case and you plan on gaming, I would recommend getting another fan or two, as this case could use the extra help in cooling the system.

4 out of 5 eggsOkay looking

Pros: Large enough to hold anything I'd need. The trays come out easily enough. (the bottom ones had to be drilled out)

Cons: The front audio connectors didn't work but that's fine since I prefer routing my headphones through the back.
The inside, back, and bottom aren't painted and are ugly with the offset color.
There aren't any top 120/140 mm fan options without a mod.

Other Thoughts: Well I put another $120 into this case doing a case mod project. ( ASUS RoG Themed) After an aluminum film along the sides and hot-rod red trim, top dual 120 mm fans with black honeycomb radiator, extended widow with acrylic, ASUS RoG logo on the window and in the mesh front, and black painted interior it looks fantastic. The orange/blue didn't look very nice though if it annoyed yo it's very easy to remove. (I just painted it black) For a modding project, it is a great case to use.
