3 out of 5 eggsnot the best

Pros: plenty of space for cards and HDD. quiet fans. openig front panel is useful for installing drives.

Cons: plastic front door is annoying at best, being re-purposed as a dust collector in my closet. came with faulty power button which drove me crazy tearing my computer apart trying to figure out why it wasn't starting. top I/O sound port not working for some unknown reason. metal bar in the middle makes installing the mobo and PSU a pain.

Other Thoughts: for $80 i expected a bit more from this case, especially from a brand like Thermaltake.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

Pros: SOLID! Heavy, rolled steal, no screws needed. Fans are quiet, lots of room, much bigger than most mid-ATX cases. It has a front fan filter. The USB and 1394 ports are on the top of the case, not the front. The PCI slots in the back are not punch outs, they can be put back in. THIS CASE DOES NOT HAVE LAME LEDS EVERWHERE, which when you grow up as a pc builder, you tend to stay away from that garbage.

Cons: Have fun putting the PSU in the case if you have the mobo in already. If you have an aftermarket heatsync for your proc, its almost inpossible. I scratched up my new 750 watt, trying to get it in, eventually i had to take the heatsync off of the proc to get it in. The USB/1394/headphone ports are a little cheap. It contradicts itself, everything else it very high quality except for this.

Other Thoughts: I really like this case and i reccommend this to anyone.

4 out of 5 eggsVery attractive, good value

Pros: beautiful looking, especially the front, very high gloss. Good quality. Nice tool-less entry to the side door. Two 12CM fan mounts.

Cons: Main con: Very difficult to get the PSU in. I don't know how they planned on you getting the PSU in, but someone made an engineering blunder. Drive retention knobs not very strong, drives can fall out during transport. Plastic hinged cover over top-mounted USB ports broke pretty easy.

Other Thoughts: For the cost, there are better options for functionality and internal quality. But cosmetically the front is excellent and hard to beat.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It's a nice, solid case. I was looking for something with a door that could use 120mm fans, though I wasn't really looking for anything with a door - but this is a good deal, especially considering the source.

Cons: Rear fan is wired with a molex connector, not the 3-pin connector you'd use for a system fan - but that's not really a big deal.

Other Thoughts: The glossy black front is pretty easy to get fingerprints on, but that's to be expected.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Nice looking case...well built...plenty of space...screwless brackets work fine...did I mention, "Nice looking Case"

Cons: I don't build computers all the time...It would have been nice if the case came with the BAG OF SCREWS it shows in the picture...I was all ready to put the thing together and I didn't find the screws with the spacers for mounting the motherboard to the case...Kind of a pain looking for them now!

4 out of 5 eggsBig room

Pros: Lots of room, great cooling, good looks.

Cons: Cheap plastic door, optical drive mounts that don't line up with their removable covers,no thumb screws on other case door

Other Thoughts: This is a nice case, I looked at a lot of cases to replace the broken case my computer was in. Looks nice sitting on my desk's tower platform. Could use some lighting but I will do that in time. Maybe it was the new cpu cooler I installed with the case, but my cpu, mobo, hdd, and video card temps have all dropped by 20+ degrees in this case.

5 out of 5 eggsBest found with door for price

Pros: good construction, no tools needed, great airflow, well designed and good layout, lots of room and bays, feet can be turned out to make it more stable, functional door, large semi-quiet fans (could have done without the orange), above average Power supply for an included package deal, cables are long enough to reach all corners of case, looks great but still simple, lights are not annoyingly bright but bright enough

Cons: door catch on top external USB, firewire, headphone, and microphone area is worthless and is almost designed to fail. Steel construction is solid but is expectedly a bit on the heavy side. Fans are generally quiet but could have been quieter for the price.

Other Thoughts: Love it. Have black case with the orange fans (2x120 and 1x90 w/ no lights). Efficient big fans on intake and exhaust. Fans are a little louder than I expected with all of the reviews but still generally quiet. If bothers me I can usually unplug the 90 on the side and gets quieter. Quiet enough to run on floor but not enough to be on top of desk. Used included PS and it lasted 2-2.5 years before it died (didn't fluctuate at all, just wouldn't turn on one day). I ran with most bays full. Toolless mounts are quite sturdy. Very few sharp edges to get cut on (most are rounded). Layout great and very spacious even for the biggest video cards I've seen. Easy to get in and out, work on, and keep the wires and other stuff tidy. Windowed panels collect dust. Intake filter helps and washable. I had to replace external top USB door cover with an alternative catch. Bottom feet turn out - more stability. Looks good - gets comments. Door finish attracts fingerprints and dust. OK door lock mechanism.

5 out of 5 eggsNice and heavy

Pros: -Thick metal, nice and heavy making the case stable.
-Good circulation
-Quality parts
-Fans are quiet
-Modular clips allows really easy installation of drives.

Cons: -Not for you if you don't like heavy cases or need to lug it around for LAN parties.
-Wish they have room for a top or even a 2nd side fan or even perhaps slots for bigger fans for those of us who like cool computers.

Other Thoughts: It helps if you place a piece of filter (e.g. fish filter) in places where the fans are so you can easily clean off dust by washing the filter.
