3 out of 5 eggsMakes you work

Pros: Good Price. Good looks. Good external/visual build for a cheap case. The power on button is really fun to press.

Cons: Not so good on the insides. The threads for Motherboard stand offs are not properly fabricated. I was not able to screw at least two stand-offs completely in causing the motherboard to be mounted unevenly. I had to do some work to make the back ports align with the I/O shield. Had to push it down a bit.

However that was nothing compared to the effort I had to make to slide the optical drive in. The frame spacing was not accurate to allow me to slide the optical drive in. I actually had to hammer (sort of) one side to make enough space for my optical drive.

Other Thoughts: I bought this case because I was on extreme low budget. and this was the cheapest that I could get considering everything. Buy it if you have no other option. Else I'm sure there are better cheaper cases out there.

5 out of 5 eggsHEC

Pros: I like the way it looks. Overall quality is good. Nothing missing. Plenty of hardware and fasteners. Everything lined up.

Cons: Easy to over tighten the brass standoffs. The 2 case fans that are pre installed are Molex plugs and a bit loud. No eggs off because of price.

Other Thoughts: This is a short but wide case. It can take the tallest heatsink of any case I have had.

4 out of 5 eggscould be a bit better

Pros: Small form factor, Can take 2 120mm fans.

Cons: Second 5.25" is inaccessible for external drive (CD/DVD/BR) due to Front panel audio, USB, and reset buttons. Getting a 3.5" hard drive in or out can be difficult. Comes with 2 80mm fans that connect to the molex power connector.

Other Thoughts: Move the reset button and ports below the external 3.5" bay opening up the 2nd 5.25" bay. Another inch deeper/longer would make it easier to install hard drives, or use 2.5" drives

4 out of 5 eggsOnly Bled a Little

Pros: Very inexpensive
Looks sharp and unique
Mostly non-sharp edges on the interior

Cons: Zero cable management
Undersized fans w/ no motherboard connectors
Tabs on side doors bend easily
Some sharp edges
Front panel difficult to release
Optical drive must be pushed in to close it (button is covered up when flap opens)

Other Thoughts: It's a cheap, fun-looking case with all the room I needed. No eggs were removed for corners cut on the design, as I know that's what keeps costs down (although I wish HEC had used 120mm case fans. It wouldn't have been THAT much more expensive to fill the mesh.)

1 egg deducted for the design of the optical drive door. I really, really don't like having to push on the open drive in order for it to retract.

5 out of 5 eggsexcellent for the $

Pros: For the price I think this little case is great, mine came in perfect shape, any gfx card will fit just fine because there are no drive bays in the bottom part of the case. it looks good and I personally like the huge power button. my case fans are completely silent.

Cons: had alot of hot glue strings inside the case, like others have said this thing will cut your hands quick if you don't pay close attention to what you are doing.

4 out of 5 eggsSmall and Cute

Pros: Small, Sexy mini-Atx, value priced. Cool DVD door, oversized On button, great Glossy black front bezed, great ventalation. If you like the way the pictures look, you won't be disapointed.

Cons: USB 2.0 on front bezel, also 80mm fans not the quietest, but they are not too bad when the case is buttoned up. Not bad for free/included, but I might replace them with slower 120's in a year or so.

Other Thoughts: Despite USB2, I bought it on looks alone and am very happy. Get the case WithOut the included PSU, as it is also a little noisy. Remove the front bezel to install DVD drive, and screw in DVD drive (removing tool-less clips on that bay). I also removed the steel drive bay tab just under the DVD bay to re-route some case wires, it gave me some extra length to my mobo.

5 out of 5 eggsHEC Vigilance micro-ATX mini tower

Pros: Great value - low cost and chock full of features!!
This is nice, sturdy, mini-tower case for a micro-ATX mobo.
Handles a full ATX PSU, 2 3.5" hard drives, plus a full sized DVD-RW. The drives attach with the "no-screw" plastic snaps. A 2.5" SDD can be bolted down in addition. The case comes with 2 USB 2.0 front ports, HD Audio front connections, along with power & reset buttons and power and drive LEDs. I was able to to add a 2-USB-3.0 front panel hub to the front "floppy" slot, with no additional hardware needed. 2 fans come with the case with molex power connections.Lots of screws.

Cons: The only downside was that there are no directions of any sort, even on the product web-site. Experts may not have an issue, but I had to figure out how the snaps work, how to pop off the front panel, etc., without damaging the case...

Other Thoughts: Overall, very pleased!

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I found the case to be well built for the price and funny enough I really enjoy the power button. It's a great basic through and true case, for a basic build. I think it's great.

Cons: none really

Other Thoughts: It is not a gaming case, so with that in mind it's great for someone looking to build a basic home/office computer.

5 out of 5 eggsVery good for the price.

Pros: - Sleek long.
- Strong considering the price.
- Looks good in any environment.
- Very inexpensive.

Cons: - Not really a con, but remember this has a gloss finish. Can get dusty and smudged pretty easily. Still it has a good gloss finish.

- Sharp edges inside. I made an amateur move and cut myself. Experienced builders are naturally careful.

Other Thoughts: Good case if you are on a budget and trying to squeeze as much performance out of your budget as possible.

Gets the job done well. My only con is that is is pretty sharp inside, so be careful in tight spaces.
