4 out of 5 eggsDecent economy case

Pros: Lots of fan options
Good build quality
Very airy, good air flow
Plenty of room for video card
Acceptable cable management
Easy to dust

Cons: Had the power button fail fairly soon after I got it. I've been using the reset button instead. I'll probably solder a new button in if I ever get around to it. Knocking off an egg for not having a model number or serial number on the case: can't get warranty parts for a case that doesn't exist. May have just been my case, wasn't worth me taking my rig apart to RMA it.

Other Thoughts: The button failure can happen to any case, and the missing numbers were probably a fluke. Have had good luck with this brand in the past, and it works well otherwise.

5 out of 5 eggsCoolMaster N500 PC Case

Pros: Smooth and clean PC case design w/ Air Flow & interior space as a priority. The flat-black color is nice as well. Lots of interior room and when you equip the case with 5+ fans, the air flow is quite noticeable. Highly recommend it for the budget-minded PC builder.

Cons: Although CoolMaster N500 states that the side door can be swapped for its optional windowed glass panel, they don't state where you can purchase it from. Not a big deal, but just wanted to state this info to buyers/viewers out there. I put 2 dust filters there instead of 2 - 120 mm fans.

Other Thoughts: The 2 sickle flow fans provided by the N500 case are extremely quiet. You dont't hear them at all, unlike the 3 Rosewill 120mm fans I ordered w/ my purchase.

5 out of 5 eggsVery good!

Pros: Nice design, and above all, doesn't look like it came from a 70s disco, like so many cases these days. What's with al lthe flashing lights so many cases have? Anwyay, simple, tons of options, I like it.

Cons: Instructions are lacking, but I got everthing figured out.
