3 out of 5 eggsLooks as good in person as it does in these photos.

Pros: Very attractive in person
Conveniently priced
MUCH quieter than I would imagine a case of this price to be
Wide enough to fit a nice heatsink for your processor

Cons: Front panel audio cable is too short (as many have stated)
Plastic on facing is soft (DO NOT wipe down with an old/stiff rag)
DVD drive button is located on door (requires you to push drive tray to close)
Large power button is too easy to press

Other Thoughts: The cable management, in general, is very poor. I didn't connect the front audio because it would've "bee lined" across the other cables and my motherboard. They could've easily fixed this by extending the audio cables and moving the drive trays to one side. The fan plugs were poorly made but I didn't even bother to use them because of their size. I honestly think they should remove them and lower the price. I made the mistake of lightly wiping the dust off the faceplate with a "broken-in" shop rag (softer than new) and that still left very light scuffs and swirls in it. BUT, I honestly could recommend this case because of the combined pros that I listed.

3 out of 5 eggsIt's a decent case

Pros: Works properly like a case should, came with fans, decent amount of room.

Cons: The front USB ports didn't take a full USB stick, It couldn't fit 2 different small CD burners, it caused me a lot of problems with space and cable managment.

Other Thoughts: If you don't care about the cons then get this case it's decent for the price

2 out of 5 eggsIts ok

Only 1 SSD mount, and its on the bottom of the case, and have to screw it in
Due to the terrible SSD mount, bad SSD temps

HDD mount clip broke

Other Thoughts: i would recommend the Rosewill FBM-01 case over this

1 out of 5 eggsJUnk

Pros: It looked nice when it was new and was inexpensive.

Cons: Cheap metal - easily dents and bends.
Cheap, noisy fans.
Bad front USB 2 connectors - stopped working.
DVD mechanism is annoying.
Hard to work on inside of case.

Other Thoughts: I bought this case as part of a combo deal. At first it seemed like a good value. Later, I found out that this "good value" became very expensive. First, it is very noisy with the fans that come with it. I ended up having to put better fans in it. Second, the case bent on the top when I was leaning on it. Yes, the metal is that thin. Then, later on the USB 2.0 ports stopped working Now I'm thinking I'll replace it with a decent case.

If you are looking for a cheap case, don't. It makes no sense. It's the foundation for your computer. Spend more money and buy something decent.

This case is nothing but junk

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.
