4 out of 5 eggsNice budget case

This review is from: ENERMAX OSTROG ECA3253-BL Black / Blue SGCC / SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Nice look
Lots of room.
Well ventilated
Comes with a fan

Cons: Thin metal (it is a budget case though so I expected this)
Some of the back corners were bent slightly when I received it. I bent them back but this was the only way the one screw would connect in the back so had to bend it back. This is unnoticeable once built though.

Other Thoughts: I own an Ostrog GT for my gaming build which I like very much so I purchased this case for a budget gaming build for my daughter. Over all I like the case. I got it on sale and I would buy it again.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat for beginners

This review is from: ENERMAX OSTROG ECA3253-BL Black / Blue SGCC / SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: This case is great for beginners I used this for my first pc build and I couldn't ask for more! tons of fan mounts just get some led blue fans for the windows and your case will look like it is one of those crazy gaming ones.

Cons: I just had a little problem with cable management but that could be a beginners mistake.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat case for the $$$

This review is from: ENERMAX OSTROG ECA3253-BL Black / Blue SGCC / SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Solid construction. Plenty of ventilation. Quiet as the grave. Plenty of room for everything. Slots allow me to feed cables out of the way for even more air flow. Side window is large and clean.

Cons: The only drawbacks are: the little locks that are supposed to secure your drives in place. On a couple of my drives I could not get them to line up with the drive. The holes were off. Plus with room for 17 fans (LOL) they could have included more than 1, but that's just being picky I guess.

Other Thoughts: Finally replaced my 5-yr old Coolermaster 5 case, and I'm very happy with my choice. build was very quick and easy. Would buy this case again. Would be nice to have the grille backlit. But that's just a perk. Still a great case!!!

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice case!

This review is from: ENERMAX OSTROG ECA3253-BL Black / Blue SGCC / SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Very sturdy case that is mostly metal and not so much plastic like some other cheap cases I saw.
The case has great cooling and never gets hot inside.

Cons: Took a while to figure out where to put my ssd because in the instructions it only showed how to do the 3.5" drive.

1 out of 5 eggsGreat Service, Poor product

This review is from: ENERMAX OSTROG ECA3253-BL Black / Blue SGCC / SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Nice Acrylic side panel, sturdy construction. The right color and the right price. Easy cable management, as with most midATX cases.

Cons: Side panel came in damaged, requested a new one through Enermax, received another damaged panel(A chip in the same location)
Mobo mounting screws were misaligned, and one was completely unusable.
Top and bottom 5.25in drive bays misaligned, only could use center 2 for dvd reader.

Other Thoughts: Great online customer support from enermax, but receiving two damaged products in a row I assume this might affect more consumers than myself.

5 out of 5 eggsGood to go

This review is from: ENERMAX OSTROG ECA3253-BL Black / Blue SGCC / SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: This case is mostly holes. In the world of high-powered
computers that is a good thing. You can easily cool any
system by adding fans and the airflow will take care of itself....no hot air will be trapped inside this case.
This is a well-built case and has room for lots of goodies inside. The four USB ports on the top work great for me since I have the systems sitting below the desk. On the desktop you might have to stand up to plug in a thumb drive but that is not a great big problem.

Cons: Nothing comes to mind.

Other Thoughts: This is the fourth one of these I have purchased. Three of them I bought at F_y's and I paid more. Newegg beat their price. Then, with the free shipping and rebate I saved even more. I am very pleased. Money saved and I didn't have to leave the house.

4 out of 5 eggsoverall very nice

This review is from: ENERMAX OSTROG ECA3253-BL Black / Blue SGCC / SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Plenty of fan spots, lots of brackets for drives. I like the see-through side panel.

Cons: It was a little hard to get my disk drive into one of the slots, had to force it in a bit. Also nothing to really hold up a graphics card that i could see.

3 out of 5 eggsBad more than Good

This review is from: ENERMAX OSTROG ECA3253-BL Black / Blue SGCC / SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Lots of disk bays, some nice internal disk mounting hardware. It has this quick snap things which can lock a disk drive in place using just your fingers in a few seconds.

Cons: Top mounted headset and USB connections. This results in the USB and headphone wires running down front of case, and the DVD disk tray keeps catching these wires when it opens and closes. Better to have these connections on front, below DVD bays so they don't get snagged. Also the power light and HDD blink light are on top (facing to ceiling). It's a tall case, I have on desk top, so I can't see the top lights. Better these were on the front of the case also. Might be good if on floor though. It has a lot of large disk bays, for like three DVD disks, then a mix of internal bays for disks. My power supply has two SATA wires with three connections on each. Because of the bay layout, I can only connect two disks drives per cable, can't use all three because can't put three disks that close together in this case. It's exhaust fan is out of the bottom of the case, which seems the worst place possible. I thought it exhausted out the top. Even exhaust out the back would be better than against the table it sits on. Can add more fans though.
I did buy this, but I would say, it's ugly. That top section with the power button, lights, and USB/speaker connections looks like a bolt on or a mistake. A flat square top would be much better looking.

Other Thoughts: I also was victim of the Rebate denial which others have described. I suggest get the case, check it out for a while, and if you have find it sort of weird like I found, send it back. Once you send the rebate, can't get a refund.
