5 out of 5 eggsGreat little case

Pros: Sturdy, nice design, looks great

Cons: Hard drive bay is a little too close to the RAM slots on the motherboard I got. I could still connect the cables fine, but it was a bit tight.

5 out of 5 eggshow to add filters to this great case

Pros: Had this case I think now since 2/11' or 11/10', but not sure, Anyways a great solid case, I used to make a gaming pc for nephew. I painted it all metallic white with gloss, and inside black, removed one fan and added two more, all with white/blue leds. Removed housing to fit a geforce 450 gtx kept a mildy positive+ pressure on case. Temp great.
As for filters, goto Lowe's or home depot, in the shopvac section there are some dust filters you use to keep the dustvac from getting clogged up to much from rock dust or saw dust. 3 x14" cloth circles - for $5. simply cut out a small frame out of anything thin and hard, glue the filter to it - walla filters.

Cons: I cut plexiglass for side to see in, and mess plexi to turn power source upside down to have intake come from top, I wish all manufacturers had the option for psu to bring in fresh air.
Well made for price.

Other Thoughts: Again filters in hardware stores are the best since you can tell how much they filter and home much air can pass through. While this case is a negative pressure - adding a fan on the side or bottom can turn it into a positive if you should so choose.

5 out of 5 eggsGood value

Pros: Good set of features, adequate manufacturing workmanship, adequate numbers of standoffs and screws. It is what it is advertised to be.

Cons: This is not the most rugged of cases. It should not be placed where it might be kicked or bumped inadvertently. Power LED connector is 2 wires, 3 pins.

Other Thoughts: I award 5 eggs on the basis of functionality, workmanship, and value for cost. I bought nine of these for use at work, and I will buy more of them.

5 out of 5 eggsA fine case

Pros: Built 2 different systems using this case. It's well designed, solid, and looks great. The price is right.

Cons: I wish there were dust filters or an easy way to add them.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent MicroATX Case

Pros: 1. Low cost
2. Rear exhaust fan
3. I like the power LED on the big power button
4. Will take full-sized PCI-E video card
5. Glossy front fascia makes for easy dusting
6. Pretty subjective. But, I like the looks.

Cons: None of the below are really a factor to me. It might be for some though.
1. Only one removable side panel
2. No mounts for intake fan up front
3. A bit cramped at the upper half. Plan ahead for RAM and HDD
4. Side vent is offset from CPU location

Other Thoughts: I'll buy it again if I need another microATX case.

4 out of 5 eggsGood, but before you buy one you should know...

Pros: 1. Inexpensive
2. Plenty of extra screws and fasteners
3. Fits a MicroATX motherboard and drives with some room to spare. It might even fit a Mid ATX motherboard.
4. Fan is reasonably quiet
5. The metal parts of the construction don't feel cheap

Cons: 6. No place to mount a front fan--the grill under the HDD caddy doesn't actually have screw holes. You can probably jerry-rig something very easily, but you'd have to remove the HDD activity light to do so.
7. Only other place to easily mount a fan is in the side, below the graphics card.
8. The black plastic front of the case is glossier than I expected. It makes it look cheap.
9. You have to be VERY careful when removing the black plastic front. There are tabs on the left, right, top, and bottom. There are also plastic posts that fit into the metal on the case. I had to file down one of these posts so it would fit back out of the hole. Take your time when removing the front and you'll probably be fine.
10. The 5.25" bays don't open like doors--they're solid plastic pieces.

Other Thoughts: WARNING! BEFORE YOU BUY:
This is a MicroATX case but it needs an ATX sized power supply. You cannot mount a MicroATX sized power supply in this case. It's just not possible.

The case's Power LED is in a 3 pin configuration but my motherboard required a 2 pin. If you *carefully* use the tiniest screwdriver you have (or the blade of a utility razor) you can lift a tab and slide the wire out of the black connector. You can then rearrange the wiring in the connector so it fits a 2 pin motherboard header.

Also: See points #6 and $8 above.

Conclusion: Despite my many concerns, I think this is a great case at this price and a good value.

2 out of 5 eggsNo screws

Pros: very good case for a simple machine, sturdy

Cons: No screws or anything arrived with the case. I'm fairly certain that screws are needed to assemble components to the case. Anyways at least i have some spares lying around. No manual even included, your expected to know how to make it together i guess.

Other Thoughts: Besides have no screws or standoffs and no manual pretty good i guess

4 out of 5 eggsGood little tower

Pros: Solid tower, feels sturdy. Everything fits snug, but fits.

Cons: The side vent doesn't exactly line up with my heat sink fan. Not a huge issue, but slightly annoying. By my own stupidity, I slit my hand open on the razor sharp sheet metal while opening the CD/DVD bay. I saw it coming, but didn't stop. Most important, this tower requires a FULL size power supply, not a Micro ATX. That is also my bad, as I should've read the reviews a little closer. Cost me a week time, but Newegg was great about RMA'ing the old PS.

Other Thoughts: AMD FX-8350 Vishera 4.0GHz
ASUS M5A88-M AM3+ 880G Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 SDRAM

5 out of 5 eggsEligantly Simple

Pros: Very simple case. I'm using it for a business workstation running Linux. It works perfectly for the amount of hardware I'm throwing in it.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Simple case for a simple system. Would not recommend for large graphic cards or more than one hard drive.
