4 out of 5 eggsDecent case for new build

Pros: Good price and looks pretty good. Standard ATX fits well, some room left over. No sharp edges. No problems with any of the drive slots. Power supply not a beast but works fine with my build.

Cons: No L.E.D. for HDD activity. Front cover could be a little more robust.

Other Thoughts: Bought this case to build a backup system with my spare components.
Asus A8n-sli Premium
2 gig Kingston ddr 400 ram
WD Caviar Blue 260 GB HDD
LG 22x DVD burner.

4 out of 5 eggsgreat for the price

Pros: ok, for the ones that said you can't put a fan in the front, if you take off the front cover there's a plate that you can put a fan behind which comes off very easily. didn't have any problem putting in anything. the screwless installation is easy to manage for even a 12 year old who I supervised installing mobo and drives into this case. had more than enough screws if I was to install it with them also, all and all a good find for the price.

Cons: the front door is very flimsy as others have said....the back panel is also thin but that's more of a personal con, it was expected given the thickness mentioned in the description.

Other Thoughts: ppl are complaining about the psu being doa and not being able to get a new one but if you read the reviews you will notice that the manufacturer has stated that you can send it in and get a new one from them.

4 out of 5 eggsGood value

Pros: For the same money as empty cases, this one has a power supply with all the usual connector types. The side panels are stiffenned with a rib instead of the usual rows of teeth along the top & bottom edge, so they're a lot easier to install, just slip the front lip into place and you're done. Plenty of room inside, more drive bays than I'll ever use lol. Came with 4 SATA cables & an IDE cable in addition to the hardware bits, nice touch.
My comp has a dual-core Athlon 2.8G, 4G RAM, an Nvidia 9800 video, two DVD-RW drives and one HDD, so not a heavy load. I've been using my comp constantly for over a month and the PS has held up fine, not a lick of trouble.
Nice120mm rear fan comes pre-installed.
Included plastic rails clip to your HDD so you simply slide them it in and click into place. Squeeze two ears and you can slide it back out, easiest toolless system I've used. You get rails for 4 drives. Sweet.

Cons: My 780G-Ultra mobo wanted an 8-pin auxilliary power plug for the processor, but the PS had only a 4-pin one. But that worked just fine when aligned to one end of the socket. The CPU air tube lined up halfway off but good enough to do the job.

The bulgy plastic front is a bit goofy looking, but having the drives & buttons behind a front door does prevent bump-incidents. The only real annoyance is that the USB & audio jacks are on the lower right side, not very convenient for my setup. Front would have been easier for me. The HDD light is hard to see due to the "artsy" front.

Other Thoughts: It is a lot of case and a decent PS for no more money than lesser cases I've had without a PS. I had no difficulty installing the mobo or the drives, and after a little hesitation I really liked the plastic rail mounting system for the HDDs. All the hardware bits & cables I needed came with it, though I would suggest getting a couple of straight-straight SATA cables for your optical drives for easier cable routing. I had some on hand.

5 out of 5 eggsAll you need

Pros: Looks nice
CPU fan outtake
HDD and CD screwless locks/slides

Cons: Buttons feels a bit fragile (they might not be but they feel like it)

Other Thoughts: I bought this case but it arrived with a DOA psu. Newegg helped out quickly though.
This is a cheap case but it really have everything you need. For a real spacey effect you can put the powerled on the hdd led connector on the mobo.
It stays cool, looks good and everything i needed for my spare computer.
I put a 4870 VX 2gb with no issues in this case.

2 out of 5 eggsPoor Quality

Pros: It comes with a power supply.

Cons: The power supply doesn't work with newer motherboards that require 8 wire supplies - it only has a 4 wire supply to the mother board. I had to swap out the power supply for a power supply I bought 3 years ago, to get a better one.

The front cover is cheap plastic, and MUST be open to insert/eject DVD's.

The ports to insert cards are cheap pop-out pot metal things, that you can bend easily in your hands.

I wish I had bought a higher end case, but this is all I could afford at the time.

Other Thoughts: This is my first experience with a cheap case. I likely won't be doing this again.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent for the $$$

Pros: Cheap, looks cool, 585w power supply, 120mm exhaust fan hole.

Cons: Inability to install front fan w/o modification (if you want a front fan the manufacturer offers 1 with it already installed, though not as good of a price as Newegg, go figure).

I misunderstood, I thought it was supposed to have 2 x 12v 2x2 connectors & it turned out that 1 of the 2x2's was supposed to be used for the 24 pin atx connector. easy fix, I ordered a 2x4 12v adapter from Newegg.

Other Thoughts: After using an Antec case for so many years I was spoiled by the durability & overall sturdiness of the case.

The sides of this case are pretty flimsy but should last as long as it doesn't get abused. I think normally a person gets what they pay for but this case seems pretty freakin' nice for not very much money.
