4 out of 5 eggsNice

Pros: Roomy - I had enough extra width to install a light strip at the top without obstructing the side panel mounts or top fan mounts. I could probably add another with room to spare as well.
It's also relatively lightweight, without feeling flimsy or having sharp edges. Then again, my own machine is a beast, so my perspective might not be worthwhile here.
There is also an unexpected storage bonus; if you like, you can have 4 standard hard drives and an SSD mounted in this without any extra hardware. There's a spot on the bottom of the HDD bays for the SSD to be mounted on the bottom without interfering with a drive in what would otherwise be the lowest spot.
Black interior.

Cons: The front panel is extremely difficult to get off - it's a standard clip type, but it just refuses to come off easily. Unfortunately, there is no other way to get to the front fan if you should, say, want to replace it with a larger one, or just replace it in general if it goes bad.
The included lighting is not nearly enough to get the case looking like the first picture - if you want that you'll have to replace basically every fan but the 200mm with an LED fan, and maybe add some extra lighting. I just added the strip to up the lighting a bit - I don't need it to be visible from miles away. The fans I added or replaced were not LED.
The power/reset buttons are behind the door. Not ideal. Also, if you have any plans for expansion cards or water cooling, better hope they're permanent - the case uses punch-out for these options.

Other Thoughts: The documentation wasn't too clear on the fan mounts, so I thought I'd shed some light on it.
6-7 fan mounts total
1x 200mm side / 2x 120mm (mounted: 200mm included)
3x 140mm / 3x 120mm (1x front, 2x top) (mounted: 3x 120mm included)
2x 120mm (1x bottom, 1x rear) (not included)
In a standard configuration (front/side intake, rear/top exhaust) a build with all fans at maximum size will yield slightly positive air pressure.

4 out of 5 eggsIt's Huge

Pros: Everything fits. I got a $20 rebate on it. Looks cool for my GF.

Cons: The front Headset Jack gives me static sound. The metal inserts for the graphic cards can't be reattached once they are off.

5 out of 5 eggsBetter than expected

Pros: The case feels durable even with sides removed, the front cover is very solid and the plastic feels heavy and durable, especially at the hinge points.

There are plenty of cable tie anchor points on the backboard to keep your cable dressing looking clean and the screw holes line up well requiring no force or torque to get things to fit.

The top two fan openings can accommodate two 140mm, and there are openings on the bottom for two 120mm. I played with the idea of replacing the case feet to give myself a couple inches of clearance and bottom mounting two 120's to force more air into the power supply and case. Instead I will just move one 120mm provided fan from the top to the bottom inside the case and just enjoy the extra venting for the power supply without an addition of a fan.

Cons: The only con I have for this case is more related to the product images for the case. It's hard to tell the exact color of the case until you unpack it. If you google FF99CC , that is the approximate color of the case. There is no metallic or reflective quality to the finish, it's what painters would call an eggshell finish.

This is not Newegg's fault since they use provided product images and hopefully my review will help people make an informed decision.

Other Thoughts: FF99CC is the color code for actual finish tint.

Fan Openings: (2) 140mm
(3) 120mm
(1) 200mm

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome!

Pros: Sturdy steel construction
-USB 3.0 on the top panel.
-side facing, rail mounted hard drive bays. I hate front facing hard drives where you have to pull the front of the case off or fight for room pushing them in place around cables/videocards etc.
-Black painted interior
-2 large fan mounts up top for a potential radiator up to 240mm.
-5 included fans with a speed controler on the top panel. One ginormous fan on the window that gives great top down cooling to the entire motherboard.
-LOTS of space for watercooling (may have to do that someday...

Cons: -Pepto pink... but hey, she loves it, and it matches 90% of the rest of the stuff she owns.
-Power/Reset buttons are behind the front door.
-Side panel fan has some motor noise.
-Lower drive bay rivited in so removing it would take some doing.
-USB and Front panel audio cables could be longer. Had to run the FPA cable over the motherboard.
-The dials on the front are so hard to read they are practically useless.

Other Thoughts: Great case. I usually build my cases, but if I ever have to buy another, this is definately an option!

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent Case!

Pros: This case is excellent all around. It fits my MSI Z87 Gaming board, MSI Twin Frozr III R7950, and G.Skill Ripjaws memory with plenty of space on the board. Easy to install, good cable management capabilities, and fans that come with it have excellent airflow. My ambient case temperature is 27C at 71F room temperature.

Cons: Large graphics card will be a very tight fit. My MSI Twin Frozr III R7950 has about an inch or two of space before it gets into the drive bay. If it were installed on the secondary PCI-E slot, it would have the same clearance but a larger card would not fit, so beware with SLI/Crossfire on extremely large cards.

Integrated fan controller knob disconnected from the mounting bracket when I turned fans down a few times. Not a big deal as I can still manipulate it, but it sinks into the case and can be very difficult to manipulate manually.

Large side fan gets in the way of liquid cooling. I have to run my Corsair H80 with one fan and the radiator instead of two fans for now. Get two 120mm fans to replace the large side panel fan, it will fit the H80 perfectly after that and maintain good airflow.

Non-removable hard drive brackets, but knew that going into it.

Other Thoughts: Excellent case for the price, good build quality.

Minor issues like the fan controller knob knock off an egg.
