Rating: 4/5The good, the bad, and the not so fantastic
This review is from: CHENMING 301KEY-0-0 Yellow Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Comments: Overall very nice. Though the color I got was NOT what is pictured. It is not the bright YELLOW you see in the pics, but more of a...well...Grey Poupon mustard dark yellow. That is unless you take it out in the sunlight, then it's rather nice and bright. But most of us don't seem to use our computers outside.
Build quality is what should be expected. Solid, sturdy and yet thin metal. Rather light weight even with the Antec True 430 PSU I put inside. The front door latches very well, much better than most doors I've seen. BUT my door came with a busted hinge pin...due to shipping I'm sure. So I whipped out the cordless drill and drilled a 1/16th inch hole where the pin broke off. Then I ran a 1/16th inch micro screw into the faceplate to see how it fit. Perfect! Took the screw out, put the door back in place and ran the screw back in. Good as new...well actually probably 50x stronger than new! I may yet shave the bottom hinge pin off and do the same.
The little hardware container on the back is kinda neat, nothing major, yet still a nice touch. The drive bay rails could be better by having a rail for both sides rather than just one, but it still works well. The latch in harddrive bay is VERY nice...very smooth!
Worh the low price I paid for it! Would I buy one again? Yes, but next time I would NOT get the yellow...eww. I only got a yellow one for a specific case design in the first place, but even if I made the same custom case I would just paint whatever case yellow instead.
