5 out of 5 eggsNice little Case for the price

Pros: I really like this case. It is simple, clean, and laid out in a way that everything plugs in easily. I have spent up to $200 on cases before that weren't as well laid out as this one is.

I'm very happy with it.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: There really is no sense in paying a lot of money for fancy cases with clear sides and disco balls. I'm not dancing or throwing parties inside my computer, so I don't need the fancy disco balls and led lights. This is a great case for the money.

4 out of 5 eggsFair For The Price

Pros: Its a very cheap case with lots of room to spare for upgrades and add ons, i have three HDDs and one SSD in there with one DVD player and one blueray player.

Cons: The USB ports in the front broke easily from normal usage.
they are the only usb 2.0 i have i guess.

Other Thoughts: great budget case and the simple and sleek look of it is wonderful.

2 out of 5 eggsBudget case, budget quality

Pros: Fairly attractive for the price point. Nice blue led power indicator. Decent airflow. Both sides removable. Physical size on the smaller side of most Mid Tower cases, which allowed me to fit it into a smaller opening. This size was the main issue for choosing the case, as it needed to fit into a limited space , yet still allow a full atx mobo, with 2 x dual PCI-E slots video cards . O.K. for someone who builds the PC and leaves it alone . See cons for details on this.

Cons: Thin construction as expected from a budget case, but my main issue is the screw terminals for securing video cards and PCI cards is very flimsy. Most have stripped out, which requires me to force even larger screws to hold the cards down. Slippery slope as every time you unscrew them, they loosen further, which requires to go larger yet again. On and on ... Worst I have ever seen in ANY case.

Other Thoughts: The main issue with the screw terminals is due to my often swapping video cards. I use the case as my main PC. and It gets used as a test PC for any new components (new & used ) that I pick up. I've been building PC's since the first Pentium CPU (60 mhz) and have never, ever stripped out a screw in any other case. Even laptops as well. I have built, or refurbished over a 100 pc's in all that time. This is the first to have this screw down problem . Cannot recommend ...

3 out of 5 eggsYou get what you pay for!!!

Pros: 1. Cheap price point.
2. Clean esthetics.
3. Decent durability.
4. Very lite weight.
5. Black interior cables.
6. Raised plastic legs.
7. Grommets for cable routing on the back of the case.

Cons: 1. Cheap materials.
2. Bare metal interior finish.
3. No bottom ventilation holes.
4. Cheap rubber grommet inserts.
5. Might want to replace the fan when you can.
6. Not a lot of space for cable management between back of MoBo tray and side panel.

Other Thoughts: I got this one for $19.99 after MIR here on Newegg (2013). Although the front of the case is made what it seems to be a cheap flimsy plastic, it looks good. It has very nice and precise cuts that make the case look way about its price range. The exterior paint job has held up rather nicely against scratches and scuffs during the years. So has the plastic front panel. Cheaper case means cheaper materials or less of certain materials. Every piece of metal in this case is thin and often sharp. Hence the lite weight. The back edge of the case was bent during one of my moves. At the time, the case was holding MoBo, PSU, RAM, CPU + Cooler, HDD, and Optical Drive and it had been placed in the original shipping box. No other components were damaged during this move. Black interior cables are a nice thought. Not that it matters with a bare metal finish, but at least they are not all kinds of colors. The plastic raised legs are good for nothing since there are no ventilation holes at the bottom of this case. Well… maybe they are good for not scratching your desktop or your fancy wooden floors if you have those. I still recommend adding another source of anti-vibration/scratch to these cheap things. I am glad I don’t use the rubber grommets because they come off all the time. I like to stash all excess cables behind the MoBo tray. However, it proved to be troublesome with this case. There is ¼ in. back there. Finally, the fan. If you are a noise phobic freak, I recommend you look somewhere else. The fan its ok but it feels cheap and it will probably start rattling soon. Mine has lasted since summer 2013 and is starting to sound a little worn down.
All I have to say is cheap, cheap, and cheap. And I love it. For 20 bucks I got exactly that. If you want better quality, look for something else in the $50 price range. This case looks nice and clean but it is not the best case you can afford. I highly recommend this case for someone with an extremely low budget, or as a server case tucked away where the kids (big or small) will not be kicking it around. Overall, I give this case a deserving three-star rating.

5 out of 5 eggsreal flimsy

Pros: used it for my server pc all holes line up great screws are good quality included fan is great.
fan mounting spot on front to cool hard drives is great
hard drive mounts are good and plastic removable panel allows big cards to be installed.
psu mounting is sturdy
all said and done it has everything I needed a case to do and looks good enough from the outside

Cons: inside isn't painted. I threw a coat of gloss black on that baby when I got it in. looks nice now
thin steel and flimsy is just the word to describe it. the side panel pops in and out easy and the entire construction sways and bends if you push it or twist it.

nobody does! they sit and collect dust as the components inside to work. this case is strong enough to hold dual titans so why not!

3 out of 5 eggsSimple case, effective, but not of high quality.

Pros: Simple design, may need to be careful with long GPUs.
I painted the interior in both of mine flat black and replaced the rivets with steel rivets. Not for the faint of heart, the thing bent and wobbled like it was on stilts until I got the last few rivets in. Antec is not what I would call HIGH quality, but not the lowest of the low either. This is still worth the money I paid.

Cons: The top mounted PSU harkens back to an age where the motherboards power port was in the near middle of the board..
Honestly I hate it. Either you drill your exhaust holes in the top of your case (Don't do that with shoddy tools, you will bend it like no other) or you invert the PSU and have the hot air blow directly into your case instead of out of it.

2 out of 5 eggsStandoffs don't fit

Pros: This case is an alright value if you're building a PC with inexpensive components - something you don't really care about and aren't going to move around or change very often.

Buttons and lights work. Single fan works and is quiet.

Cons: This is a very lightweight case. It arrived looking a bit worn. Once I took the side off I could see there was some bending to the cages and the expansion slot pop-outs were popped around a bit.

The worst thing I've encountered is that the motherboard standoffs will not thread into their holes. I managed to find three that would fit into certain holes, thinking that three would be enough to keep the motherboard stable. It was, barely. It made installation of the other components problematic. The CPU heat sink, jumpers, and power connections were a nightmare to fasten with the board bending so much.

Other Thoughts: In the end, it's workable. I'm using it for a NAS. Everything in it is refurbed cheap stuff except the drives. I wouldn't use this to house anything but the most-expendable components, as there is probably a fair chance of damage during installation due to the cheap fittings.

2 out of 5 eggsThis case is not good.

Pros: Sleek form

Cons: Cheap punch out spots for external interfaces to pcie cards
and disk drives. Can't recover holes that have been punched.

Front case audiojack does not work.

Not enough screws in packaging.

Airflow is poor.

Other Thoughts: Do not buy this case. There are better ones for a similar price

3 out of 5 eggstrouble fitting full size atx MB

Pros: Simple clean design that provides a basic no frills case. Perfect for my self built Linux system. I was looking for a minimum size case for a full size atx MB. However...

Cons: My full size super micro atx MB was a bit too big to fit in the case. I had to trim about an 1/8" of sheet metal off the drive bay frame to get the MB to drop in properly. I'm handy with a Dremel tool so although I was frustrated, it was easy for me to make the necessary adjustments. But, other buyers may not be as willing to go this far.

5 out of 5 eggsSmall on the outside, big inside

Pros: Minimalist styling. Inexpensive case has lots of room for optical and hard drives. It isn't listed in the specs but as you can see in the pics it does have an external 3 1/2" drive bay. I like an external card reader in my machines so this case fit the bill. If you don't need six internal drives you can remove part of the drive cage to accommodate a huge graphics card.

Cons: Not especially sturdy or well made but you do get more than you're paying for in this case.

Other Thoughts: Got this to build a Linux server with spare parts I had laying around. Love the power switch on the top of the case and the reset button can be activated with a finger, rather than a pencil.
