5 out of 5 eggsGreat Little Case

Pros: Very compact and solidly built. Runs very cool. Attractive front panel design.

Cons: One must be careful not to break the factory clips which hold in the hard drives and optical drives. Even if they should break, all devices can be attached with conventional screws.

Other Thoughts: I built a 24/7 computer from spare parts I had accumulated in my business to run my weather station continuously since I didn't want to run my main "monster" all the time. This case really worked out perfectly with a micro mobo and as previously stated, it runs extremely quiet and cool with the factory fans. I'm going to buy more for my business for customers that gasp at the size of some of the mid-tower cases.

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent Value

Pros: I can't recall a better deal with both a very nice solid case and a 400W power supply for $45 (at time of purchase). The case is roomy, with plenty of space for a MicroATX MB and whatever else you'd like to add. The case looks sharp and has a nice solid feel to it, I couldn't be happier with this case!

Cons: included case fans are 4-pin Molex fans and do not directly connect to the MB... its a minor grumble to be sure and easily replaced if it bothers you. The included 400W* power supply is an HEC ORION HP400 PSU of dubious quality. It only had one 80mm fan on the back of the unit passing air through a stamped grill. While it is advertised as a 400W PSU and has the model# of a 400W PSU (the HP400-series), the only label on the PSU itself proudly boasted a total wattage of 95Watts... that's not a typo... 95watts... I have read of others with the same HP400-series of PSU where it read 230watts... I also understand it may well not be the TOTAL output of the PSU, and only a portion of some of the lines involved (it probably is 400W total in some secret way), but I just felt uncomfotable trusting my system to an obviously budget PSU that screams "hey, I got 95 watts for you" on the label. I did run the system on the ORION HP400 PSU for a week (without problems) for a week before I replaced the PSU with a Sentey 525Watt PSU (for $30) for peace of mind.

Other Thoughts: Overall, i'm giving this product 4 out of 5 eggs... I might have gave a lengthy "Con" to the PSU in this case, but really, the case alone without a PSU is well worth the $45 asking price, and if you're a gambling man, the included PSU may well work for a long time without issues... I just decided to up it to a better 525watt PSU for an extra $30 for peace of mind. I am still very happy with this case, and would buy another without hesitation as I find it a very good value (i would just replace the PSU in another build). Overall, great value and a very nice case... and thats what I was focused on... a very good case, which this is.

1 out of 5 eggsPower Supply was DOA

Pros: Good case.

Cons: Power supply was DOA.

Other Thoughts: Given that I lose the return shipping for RMA, the total price of this case makes it not competitive with others in this category. And my replacement case will not arrive in time to make sure that my CPU is OK.

5 out of 5 eggsNice, Very Nice

Pros: I've been using this case for builds that I'm doing for a couple of businesses in my area. I have purchased and deployed 13 of these so far and they perform flawlessly. Can't think of a better deal especially if you have Newegg Premier with free shipping. These are perfect micro ATX cases for normal builds. I wouldn't use them for gaming machines but they are perfect for everything else.

Cons: ???????????? Nothing

4 out of 5 eggsGood little tower

Pros: Easy install and good circulation. Fans are fairly quiet.

Cons: HDD plastic snaps are brittle and I managed to break one before even installing my SSD, but the system is still able to hold it tight. Egg missing because I'd be concerned about installing a HDD in the broken slot due to vibration issues.

Other Thoughts: I would definitely buy another now that I know to be extra careful with the plastic HDD retainers.

3 out of 5 eggsNot Bad

Pros: Reasonably Priced case with 400W Power Supply. Plenty of space inside for MicroATX board and parts

Cons: Front Control Panel wiring is awkward and the HD Audio cable barely stretched to the port on the motherboard. Fans use standard Molex connectors instead of connecting to the motherboard fan power/monitoring plugs.

Other Thoughts: I really liked the look of this case as it was very OEM-like and I purchased it for a client computer build. I was happy with it until I wanted to use the 3.5" bay for a multi-card reader and noticed the the front control panel wiring for the USB Ports and HD Audio ports was right in the center and was very awkward to get out of the way so I could use the 3.5" bay.

This made the internal wiring even shorter as I had to push it out of the way and the HD Audio cable that connects to the motherboard was barely long enough.

5 out of 5 eggsThe best you'll find for the price!

Pros: -Great Price
-Looks great
-Included fans are good for being only 80mm
-Case supports 120mm fans
-Good variety of drive mounting options (see "Other thoughts")

Cons: -The HDD LED is brighter than the sun, while the power LED is barely visible... a tad annoying
-The PSU's 12V rail is only 11.5A. Keep this in mind if you're tossing in a power-hungry CPU and GPU.
-The SATA power cables are a bit short for the 2.5" hard drive mount (see "Other thoughts")
-Front fan exhaust requires ample clearance UNDER the case for proper ventilation due to lack of vents on the front cover. Get thick rubber feet to keep this from being an issue.

Other Thoughts: The drive mounting specs are WAY off! Shame on you, Newegg!

Here are the correct specs:

1x 2.5" internal (mounts on bottom of case)
2x 3.5" internal
1x 3.5" external
1x 5.25" internal
1x 5.25" external

4 out of 5 eggsNice case for the price!

Pros: Attractive looking case

Cons: Power supply could stand to be a little beefier

Other Thoughts: Very nice looking case, easy to assemble. While the PSU is still working, I replaced it with a Corsair 600W unit, as I think 400W with an i7 is just barely enough.

5 out of 5 eggsSmall and Simple

Pros: Small and simple, worked great for my need. The plastic clips to hold the hard drives are a joke but they provided plenty of screws to secure everything.

Cons: It is a simple case made of thin metal so I would not use it as a step, but to hide away under my desk it works great. My memory modules are short and fit fine under the hard drive but you might have issues if your memory has tall heat sinks on it.

Other Thoughts: I replaced the stock power supply so I cannot speak to it.

4 out of 5 eggsAn OK Case

Pros: It is a good case. It is very basic and has good cosmetic appearance. Yes, buying a case with power supply at this price was a bit of a concern but the Orion power supply does the job. I scoped both CPU power and mother board power feeds prior to installing the mother board and stability was not an issue. You get what you pay for which is a nice bare bone case with base line power supply.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: If your expecting great things out of this buy - don't make this purchase but if you want a good base line case - its a good deal.
