2 out of 5 eggsnot the best monitor

Pros: - picture is good when it works properly

Cons: - buttons sometimes don't work, require hard pressing
- picture will go shaky
- buttons will lag

Other Thoughts: Picture would go shaky at time, buttons were annoying as they'd only work sometimes.

Manufacturer Response:

3 out of 5 eggsFor the price not bad of an case

Pros: The price. plenty of room for case fans. USB 3.0 on the front. Nice coating on the case. Room for several hard drives.

Cons: The same coating inside the case where the mainboard is mounted. Tried to screw in the motherboard mounting screw and I ended up having to use needle nose pliers to finish screwing them in. Pliers slipped and ended up pinching my finger and getting a blood blister. The case fan runs dim and slow (600 rpm).

Really not any room for Cable Management.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend using a case screw to strip off the coating for the main board screw holes. That way you would avoid a blood blister from the needle nose pliers pinching you. To use a 120 mm case fan you would need to use a standard case fan. The Antec True Quiet fans will not work in the front. They will work else where in the case.

4 out of 5 eggsNice on drive installs.

Pros: Good design on the hard drive and optical drive bays. Not needing mounting screws to hold in most drives is a plus.

Power supply at the bottom to make the case feel more solid on the desk.

Cons: Doesn't feel as sturdy as some other cases I have used in the past.

1 out of 5 eggsmore than what you get

Pros: room for a larger/longer GPU. Small foot print.

Cons: Very flimsy, fan positioning requires fan removal to install motherboard.

Other Thoughts: I bought the case to support a longer GPU, it did that well. The case is vey flimsy and prone to shift and rack when istalling components. Due to the small footprint of the case, the larger cpu coolers make the top mount fan bays next to impossible to access.

4 out of 5 eggsGood for the price

Pros: Quite an attractive looking case for the price, features such as the large motherboard cutout, tooless 3.5" and 5.25" drive bays, ssd compatibility out of the box, and a front bezel which is very easy to take on and off made the overall build of the computer a breeze, and nice little touches such as the clear window on the side (although small) and the 120mm blue LED case fan are also nice. Oh i nearly forgot, usb 3.0, on a $60 case!

Compatibility with up to 4 additional case fans and room for a rather large video card also make this case ideal for expandability in the future.

Case is well made and sturdy and the all black finish looks very nice and clean. For the price, I would highly recommend this case.

Cons: Although the overall build quality is very nice, the side panels however were quite flimsy, and are quite difficult to reinstall without another person holding the other side of the side panel for you.

My main gripe with this board was its lack of cable management options. Although there is a removable side panel to the back of your motherboard, there are no cable routing holes. But in saying this, this is a $60 dollar case, and I be expecting too much.

My last minor complaint is that the start button gets stuck sometimes, not too much of an annoyance, but yet it is something that was overlooked and could have been easily rectified.

Other Thoughts: To conclude, this case is great. Especially at $60 you get many features that make installation very easy and expandability possible in the future.

Although it has a few minor flaws, this is definately great value and I highly recomend this product.

4 out of 5 eggsNice case for the price.

Pros: -Cheap price, but seems to be made sturdy enough.

-Accessible, Getting in and out of the case is easy and convenient, just 2 screws and the side panel slides right out.

-USB 3 on a $60 case!

-Included fan seems to be of a decent quality, nothing fancy, but serviceable.

-Plenty of drive bays and space inside. No 2.5 bays for my SSD, but can't knock them for that, there's plenty of cheap mounting adapters out there to make it fit the 3.5, and they clearly state this in the product description.

-While aesthetically there are some nicer looking cases out there, this doesn't look bad by any means, just a flat black interior and exterior, and no obnoxiously large logos or anything. LED's are a nice touch too.

-Plenty of vents for additional fans, I think I counted a total of five vents for 120 fans.

-Side view window, though it's a bit small, was surprised to see it on a case this cheap.

-Drive bays have a tool free locking system that seems to work well, but still allows for your drives to be attached with screws should you choose. These are red, and aesthetically pleasing against the black interior.

Cons: -Side window is pretty small, though I can't complain or dock them for this, as the size is shown on gallery images, and I was surprised to see this on a $60 case.

-The 4 pin to 3 pin adapter for the fan was wrecked when I opened it, several of the pins were bent, some were missing entirely. This is really why I'm only rating this item a 4 instead of five. Contacted thermaltake about replacing just this part, but I'm willing to bet I'd have to return the whole package. If this is the case, I'll just drop the couple dollars to buy a new adapter, not too huge of a deal.

Other Thoughts: Overall, this is one of the nicest $60 cases I've seen, lots of cool extra features, sturdy construction, and pleasing enough to the eye. Would definitely recommend, despite my small problem with the damaged adapter.

5 out of 5 eggsSuperb case for the price

Pros: - Well placed front I/O and switches
- Huge cutout behind the MB
- Very light
- Well designed tool less 3.5 and 5.25 drive bays
- Allows for installation of fairly large GPUs

Cons: - Flimsy dust filters
- Doesn't allow for installation of big cooling fans (8in +)

Other Thoughts: This case is an excellent choice. It comes with all the necessary screws. Case feet are already installed. The front bezel is easy to remove and reinstall. Everything falls into place easily during the build. Dust filters are a nice touch but not sure about their efficiency. Besides, they feel a bit flimsy and the one on the bottom can get damaged while manipulating the case.

There is a huge cutout behind the MB that will allow for installation of quite a lot of different CPU coolers. There are tabs here and there that are probably meant for cable management but they are pretty much useless. The tool less bays are well design and very simple to use however, you may want to install screws on the other side of the drive you're installing to avoid rattles from vibration generated by a highly spinning DVD drive.

Well worth the money.

Pros: Everything is accurately described, the fan that runs with it is quiet and the click in mounts are easy to use.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: It's a nice case, for the price it's a good deal. It's just nothing amazing.
