5 out of 5 eggsGood for the price

Pros: The case looks solid and performs well too. I really like its compact size and the design of it

Cons: The DVD drive will make you have the most trouble when installing any optical drive. Since the case is small, you'll have to squeeze the cables into the empty slots of the HDDs.

4 out of 5 eggsGood case...practical.

Pros: Attractive. Easy to use.

Cons: A bit thin...but what isn't these days?

Other Thoughts: I have used two of these cases for a build. The metal is a bit thin, but for the price what can you expect. I have paid more for cases and still gotten metal so thin you could almost see through it. But then again, who says it needs to be thick metal that weighs a ton? When you get right down to it the only purpose a case serves is having somewhere to hang the hardware on to. Working inside the case is fairly easy. I personally liked it and will be using more of these in the future.

5 out of 5 eggsSimply Perfect

Pros: For the price I paid on this case I am nothing but satisfied. I needed a case to swap out from a stock HP case.

Cons: None. If you don't know how to just make things work then you need to start learning a little more.

Other Thoughts: Careful taking out the cut out slots for PCI cards, they are very sharp.

4 out of 5 eggsGood case for the money

Pros: Looks cool. Well-built. Has tools-free setup, which most cases at this price point don't have. Compact enough to fit almost anywhere, yet wide enough to accommodate a standard ATX power supply, which was a big plus for me.

Cons: The power button is HUGE. This may not be an issue for most people, but I put this case on the floor and have to be careful not to brush it with my foot. Also, the included fans aren't exactly quiet; if you want a silent system (I use mine for music production) you should probably replace them. As many other reviewers have alluded to, putting a disk drive into the case is a chore.

Other Thoughts: A great deal considering how cheap the case is. I nitpicked in this review, but for all intents and purposes it works fantastic and I have had no major problems with it.

4 out of 5 eggsEC Vigilance

Pros: Nicely put together cheap little case. Visually appealing.

Cons: None to speak of, I wanted a cheap little case and got one. Lost one egg for rebate form difficulty.

Other Thoughts: Have had some trouble with rebates from Newegg recently which I have never seen before from other vendors I use. I am very careful and follow steps precisely.
This rebate form very difficult to follow and many built in traps to allow failure. I work in Special Education and look for these things. Too bad.

1 out of 5 eggsBeware!

Pros: It's a cheap, and I mean CHEAP, case. It looks a lot better than most of the other bizarre looking cases available. I didn't have much trouble fitting in components. It does what it was intended for; something to put computer components in. I like the big power button but wish the lights and reset button were positioned under the 3.5" drive bay.

Cons: Be careful of razor sharp edges! Very thin metal. The tool-less clip mechanism broke the first time I tried to use it. Good thing it had screw holes. DVD door is going to be the second thing to break, it's super flimsy. Third thing to break is going to be the front panel clips. I cracked one of them taking off the front panel to install the DVD drive. Super Glue to the rescue! Case came lopsided and bent. Absolutely NO quality control, It is missing rivets that holds it all together! I was able to cosmetically repair it but the rear corner support is rippled beyond repair. Only came with half as many screws as I needed thanks to the broken tool-less mechanism but I had plenty in my extra parts bin.

Other Thoughts: I was in a pinch for a budget build and this was the only case that didn't come with a power supply that looked half-way decent. I made a bad choice that I won't make again. Do yourself a favor and stay away from this case, it's GARBAGE!

4 out of 5 eggsGood for budget

Pros: Clean and small, good for a budget billed.

Cons: The stand offs strip out easily and the motherboard screws would not go easily into the standoffs

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect case

Pros: This case is perfect for the budget build. Easy to use comes with lots of screws, and screw less system does work thought i added some to my dvdrw and hdd for stability.

Cons: You will have to remove front panel to install dvd drive, just pull from the top and then with pincers squeeze plastic clamps on both sides one at a time comes right off easy.

Other Thoughts: very satisfied for the price

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Inexpensive. Very light. Not as flimsy as other cheap cases I've bought. Both fans work. All lights work.

Cons: The pins on the connector for both fans bent out of place. Easy fix. They do work.
