5 out of 5 eggsGreat case

Pros: Professional looking case. Ample room for hard drives. Power supply location is good. Super quiet and sturdy.

Cons: As others have mentioned, fingerprints galore. Does not ventilate very well with stock fans and the sound deadening which acts like insulation. Power and reset button location sucks. Side panel could be easier to remove.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: high hard drive capacity
bottom mountable psu
excellent build quality
glossy paint

Cons: top mounted power & reset buttons. would have been nice to see the buttons on a side panel
glossy paint is nice but it does show finger prints
i received my case with a defective front input panel & small bend in the psu bracket.

Other Thoughts: perfect case for a budget quiet build that's needed in a dorm room or office

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: -Very quiet (quiet enough I barely know it's sitting on the desk next to me, even when running Prime95).
-Clean lines for a decent price (there seems to be an inverse relationship between taste and price when it comes to computer cases...)
-Plenty of space inside.
-The LEDs aren't uselessly bright (soft white, for the record, which was something I didn't expect, but was a pleasant surprise nonetheless).
-The power/reset buttons are low travel and delightfully positive/clicky.
-Lots of places for fans.
-USB 3.0 front headers.

Cons: -The space behind the motherboard could be a little deeper (the foam takes up an extra quarter inch where it otherwise wouldn't be a problem).
-Shows dust and fingerprints like none other.
-Only four screws for the front two fans (four for the one included, zero for the extra space).
-The 5.25" drive bay locks are... finicky? They work, but they're not the best design.

Other Thoughts: Overall, very impressed with this case. Aesthetically, this case is near perfect for what I wanted (black, clean lined, with a front door).

It's a very solid case for the money; the computer I have in it has been a on-going project for the better part of a year, and it's held up being moved around and opened a bunch of times.

4 out of 5 eggsgood value with a few quirks

Pros: Quiet, many drive bays, front usb 3.0, lots of screws (also a con)

Cons: Difficult plastic holders for both the drive bays and the hard drives, not a lot of depth between the sides, not much cable space for board power behind case side. Case sides must be attached with thumbscrews to stay put. Lots of screws that don't seem to fit anything but no extras for fans

Other Thoughts: Before I did anything else I removed all the case fans and replaced them with 120mm coolermaster fans. Reading other reviews, I decided this would make it quietest so I can't say if the existing fans were noisy or not but it is really pretty quiet now. Getting the front cover off wasn't too hard but I managed to put some scratches on the case maneuvering it. Luckily I don't care about scratches (or the fingerprints that get everywhere). I put two fans in the front but there were only enough screws for one (4 screws). You'd think with the multiple bags of screws they give you there would be extras of the long fan screws but no. Fortunately I guess, two screws are good enough to secure each fan. I wish there was a little more depth between the case sides. I ended up not using the 212 EVO CPU cooler I bought and instead used a TX3 that I have been happy with in other builds. I decided it was just too cramped inside with that large of a CPU cooler blocking off the case airflow. I also had to push pretty hard to get the right side cover back on after running my cables. The 24 pin power cable for the mobo is pretty thick so it takes space, otherwise the rest fit fine. My power switch in the front does not light up so I think there is a problem with the led, not worth an RMA. To avoid confusion between it and the reset button I used a gray sharpie to outline the power button. I also used the sharpie to highlight the little slash / that indicates the microphone jack and the omega-like symbol that indicates the headphone jack. These are just black imprinted on black so impossible to tell them apart otherwise! The clips that hold the DVD drive in are rather flimsy plastic and fell off several times before I got them to hold the drive in properly. Overall the case is a good value if you get it cheaply. It is very quiet compared to my old Antec case and my temps are not high at all so there must be enough air flow. Once I got everything in and running with a few modifications I am happy with it. My main desires were for front usb 3.0 and audio, good airflow and quiet operation so this case met my criteria.

4 out of 5 eggsNice for the price

Pros: It looks great, although not as good as its white counterpart. This was on sale though for 39.99 after rebate, so I got it at a great price. This case is heavier than I expected, but it's a nice, solid feel. It has that modern NZXT look and is pretty glossy. It's great that one of the HDD cages is removable. Quite some room for components and what not. The two included fans are of pretty nice quality.

Cons: Its glossiness attracts fingerprints and dust very quickly. As a pet owner, this sucks. There's not much room for cables in the back, so the back panel was pretty hard to get back on after installing everything. The HDD racks are a bit flimsy and a few fell out the first time I tilted the case back. This is a problem for 2.5 inch drives but not so much for the 3.5 inch ones. The USB 3.0 cable for the front ports is a dual cable, meaning it has a larger end. I can't use it because my motherboard has separated USB 3.0 ports on it that require 2 separate 10-pin connectors. Also, I can't seem to find the system speaker or cable for it, so diagnosing boot issues will be a challenge.

Other Thoughts: A great case for the price, but the white one looks better. Lots of room inside but not much on the back side. If you can, go with a Fractal r4 or an H440 for a similar aesthetic but much higher quality.

4 out of 5 eggsGood value but stock cooling is poor

Pros: Good Cable Managemnt
High feet keep it elevated off the ground
Good build quality and doesn't feel cheap
Good value
Included dust filters
Easy to work inside of

Cons: Included fans are loud and don't move enough air
Hard drive trays are flimsy
Does not dampen noise as much as expected
Only one usable exhaust mount
Side panels are easy to remove but can be annoying to re-attach
Only supports 120mm fans.

Other Thoughts: I think if you can replace all of the stock fans with quieter fans that move more air this can be an excellent case

I recommend the 120mm Cooler Master Sickleflows as replacement fans, they are not too expensive, are quiet, and move a lot of air.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect!

Pros: Great Case! Very neat, pretty good cable management and very convenient! Comes with a lot of screws and two good fans! 4 months of use and not disappointed!

4 out of 5 eggsNice Case!

Pros: Nice looking case, fairly solid construction for the most part. Manages to keep cool despite what some reviews say, though I would recommend getting an after market cooler. I've heard that the cooler master evo 212 just barely fits, so I went with the thermalright true spirit BW rev A, which I believe was a solid choice. My CPU/GPU temps idle around 28 c.

Cons: Don't have too many bad things to say, except that the included fans aren't that quiet. If you really want quiet operation you'll need to pick your other components carefully. Also, my case did not come with extra screws for installing another front intake fan, which I thought was a bit odd and inconvenient.

Other Thoughts: I bought this case mostly for looks and a couple of nicer features for the price point, and it hasn't disappointed.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat case overall though i would buy the white version

Pros: This is a great case overall. Sleek looks, front panel, everything you can ask for. in a mid tower case. Can take off the middle storage shelve to add extra room within the case for cables, or even a longer length GPU. In this price range not alot of cases have this feature.

Cons: The bracket for the hard drive sucks untill you put a hard drive in. If you don't have a hard drive in them they slip and fall so expect to hear some clank noise if you decide to leave the brackets in there. If you have a hard drive just put it in and it snaps into the case securing it. Also i hate how fingerprints are attracted to the case making it loose its beauty ounce your fingers are on it. Also 2 of my motherboard standoff were "broken", where the standoff would not go fully in but its ok. Not a big deal to RMA.

Other Thoughts: Great case. If you don't like the figerprints then i advise you to look at the white version of this case. I HEARD that the white doesnt attract fingerprints. Maybe it does but idk. In my opinion the noise damping doesn't work in my opinion but still the contents of the case is great.
