5 out of 5 eggsNot like the picture

Pros: A good quality case and looks nice too. I like the side intake fan 120mm.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Unfortunately it doesn't look anything like the picture shows. It's not dark gray and black, it's straight black with a shiny black front. The first thing I did when I got it was take out the fans and power supply because they are junk. I'm using my own after market fans and PSU.

3 out of 5 eggsDecent Motherboard

Pros: Pretty straightforward motherboard, everything you need is onboard, plus the many PCI slots for large expansion.

Cons: I/O Shielding does not fit the board perfectly, on the cluster of 4 USB ports the I/O shielding overlaps the USB port a little bit, you can still plug in a USB device but something to watch.
4 out of 7 of the screws provided to mount the motherboard down to its support screws were to small and would not fit the mounts correctly. However the other provided screws for drives and the such worked and fit better so I used them instead and they seem to be a better solution anyways.
IDE slot is located at the very bottom of the board, if you're case is an ATX Full you may have trouble reaching the top most drive bay.

Other Thoughts: Economic board, for the price it is a good board and you get what you need, but if you can swing it I would suggest a step upward in price.

1 out of 5 eggsOnly one sata

Pros: Light, simple, temperature display

Cons: only 1 sata power, cheap front panel design

Other Thoughts: Purchased it for building a UNIX based data backup server for my sister's business. For the price, this isn't a bad case. But I expect least two (1 DVD, 1 HD) sata connectors. All LED cables are attached to front panel and when I pulled out the front panel to remove cover for the DVD player, the whole cable assembly came out with it - cheap design!!!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat price/performance case

Pros: I transplanted my Dell Inspiron 580s into this case with the following gear:

Intel X-25M and WD 2TB Green Drive
ATI Radeon 5770
Blu-Ray and DVD Optical Drives

The system is running great!

PSU and two included 120mm fans (the case has room for three 120mm fans) are surprisingly quite for a mid-price case/PSU setup.

Cons: The biggest con for me and probably most people is that the PSU only has one SATA connection. However, even then it works fine with molex 5-pin to 'Y' SATA connectors.

Also, it would be nice if the case was a little thicker but for the price it's to be expected.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Tower/PSU for a Great Price!

Pros: This was a great deal. I paid $59 bucks for a nice looking tower and a 450W power supply. There is plenty of room to get my hands inside and work on whatever needs it, the temperatures of my hardware has dropped significantly because of the included fans, and the display on the front of the case is extremely handy... I also liked that it came with matching dvd-burner mock face-plates. Now my white dvd-burner matches the black case perfectly.
This is just at first glance though. I will update at a later time if anything changes.

Cons: None at all! Get it while it's still priced low!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case

Pros: the case looks great and the PSU that came with it works great. I love everything about it and would defiantly buy another.

Cons: the two things i dont like about it is that the psu only has one sata and the side fan is a little loud but its great besides that.

Other Thoughts: It would have been cool if the temp sensor on the front could read the temp of the hard drive but no big deal.

4 out of 5 eggsA Fair Case

Pros: Good price, 2 cooling fans, simple design.

Cons: I'll be replacing the PSU shortly, not much to it.
Front USB ports had a loose cable.

Other Thoughts: I like a simple case, this case filled that part and then some.
Dump the PSU, lite weigh and not much to it.

5 out of 5 eggsReally just a great case

Pros: The first thing I like about this case is how nice it looks, it's not super flashy but enough to impress folks with the temp display. I had no issues installing any component and there's plenty of room for more, though I'd likely need a larger power supply in that case. The power supply is nothing special but for this price and the quality of the case having an included power supply that's already hooked up and everything feels like an awesome bonus.
I especially like how easy the case is to get into at a moments notice and that there's no real sharp spots inside.

Cons: Only one SATA power cable, but it's not like the power supply can be expected to support too much hardware anyway.

Other Thoughts: So far everything is exactly as advertised with no issues, the inside of the case isn't painted and has some small paint spatter but that's really picky since there's no window. There were plenty of screws included and everything fit. This was my very first build and I didn't have a problem! Yay!

5 out of 5 eggsMy favorite case

Pros: Good design and build quality is nice. I have purchased 15+ of these cases after previously using Apevia's black Dreamer cases before. It's not super heavy duty, but not plastic.. I like the balance. This power supply isn't a monster but very reliable as long as you don't overload it. Use Newegg's PSU calculator to see if you overloading it. (google it) Overall this case is very reasonably quiet for how cool it runs.

Cons: Only one Sata power cable, although one is infinity times better than none. The hardest thing to install is the front bezel's for the DVD/CD drives, and even those are cake.

(open flap with one hand for a visual of the tab holding in place, and with a flat head screw driver in the other, approach from behind to gently push the tab while pulling the bezel with the other hand gently.)

Other Thoughts: The power button is very different but easy to use, especially if you want to turn on the computer with your foot. Overall this is a classy case and looks good, my favorite case on the market.

4 out of 5 eggsbig

Pros: the case is nice. when i pulled it out of the box i forgot what it was like since i had been using a laptop for about 3 years, but it looks and is very sleek. the thermometer has a nice big display so you can see the temps at a good distance. and the two 120mm fans are good.

Cons: the bay covers are hard to get off if you dont have small fingers. if you want to get a really good custom cpu fan the fan on the side panel has to come out or the cover will not go back on.
