4 out of 5 eggsDecent Case!

Pros: This case is great for the price. It's sturdy and provides 2 fans already mounted.

Cons: Somewhat cheaply made but for the price I have absolutely no complaints.

Some of the hardware such as the HDD bays are removable and in order to get them seated in properly is a pain.

If you want to install front case fans you must remove the HDD bays Which can be long and frustrating compared to other cases.

The front-bottom dust collector screen doesn't clip in. When I was putting components in the computer sometimes after rotating the case the front screen would slide out. Not a major issue but it's an irritating one that could be solved easily from the designers.

Other Thoughts: It's an overall great case. I would recommend it to anyone who needs a nice case for a cheap price.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat, Simple, Easy, Cheap

Pros: This case for it's price is everything i needed in a case for a great building experience, lots of room, lots of bays, easy to take apart and put together, it's a really nice design in my opinion and basically perfect for what i wanted a nice clean case with great performance and as that the cooling and performance of it around the components is great, even between removing the side panel or not doesn't effect the temps much at all if any due to the already great open flow, and the little extras here and there make it even greater, rely couldn't see a need for more unless wanted a fancy design what im not big on

Cons: It's rely hard see any negative to this case, I'm sure for some peoples use there maybe one but for me, can't think of one

Other Thoughts: buy it, use it, love it :3

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Case

Pros: This case looks wonderfully sharp. I was so pleased with the included 120mm fans that I bought a few more NZXT fans and also the Kraken X41. The I/O LED on the back is really useful when digging around in a cord forest. The cutaway window gives a great view of your build and a good way to see any dust buildup. Plenty of room for cord management and excellent airflow. Built out of sturdy steel. My build runs very cool in this tower. Excellent case for the price!

Cons: The I/O LED switch is right next to the power and reset buttons and feels the same in the dark, which can result in an accidental reboot. The included instructions aren't the best for connecting the case LEDs to the mobo (couldn't figure out why the front panel LED wasn't working for about a day - turns out it runs off of a SATA power connector).

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for a sleek yet sturdy case that will run cool and quiet, look no further.

3 out of 5 eggsits ok

Pros: Case looks and feels really nice. There is enough space to do what i want inside of it and I cant really complain too much because of the price which isn't bad at all.

Cons: When i received the case the door top corner was bent so i couldn't get the thumb screw out which really up set me. then i was taking off the other side and the bottom corner bent, and this isn't my first computer build the metal on this case is very cheap.

Manufacturer Response:

4 out of 5 eggsGood Case, Slight Rattle

Pros: A very simple case with modular, removable 3.5 drive bays.

Cons: The window panel rattles a bit when computer is under a little stress, but nothing that some tape on the corner wouldn't fix.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: Premium Feel
Nice Style
Plenty of room
Good airflow
Easy to build with

Cons: The labeling for micro ATX confused me so I was originally missing a mounting screw and had to take off motherboard and put it in. Maybe I can't read though

Other Thoughts: Built with this for a friend who picked it. Made me respect for NZXT cases.
Feels like a much higher quality case than phantom 410.

5 out of 5 eggsWow ?

Pros: I've built a few systems in my day, but this case fills a very sweet spot in my collection. All the parts are cut and fit very well, no sharp edges. All the hardware is nicely laid out and labeled. Do be certain to read the documentation to find out which packet of screws are for what. Many, many cable routing options and capabilities, tie down points galore. I'm particularly fond of the removable/washable air filters on the bottom and front. All of mine fit securely and were easily removed and replaced. Excellent hardware kits, well thought out and well organized.

Cons: I would have loved to have another filter on the backside fan portal since that's where my Cooler Master pulls air into the case and across my CPU radiator. Some assemblers may wish to have a top side filter since that's also a popular place to install 240mm radiators.

Other Thoughts: It's called a Mid-Tower, but it's very, very roomy. Since this is likely my last computer tower case I wanted it to be flexible in it's capabilities. I was not disappointed.

5 out of 5 eggsJust want I wanted

Pros: Tons of room and designed for significant air-flow. I received the case lightning fast and couldn't be happier with it. The construction seems solid and it's got some weight to it so it doesn't feel like a cheap piece of plastic. The side door comes off easily with thumb screws and the way the door is designed keeps viewers looking at whats important and hiding what's not (i.e. HDD bay, optical drives, and SATA connectors) making for a clean and easy install.

Cons: None yet

Other Thoughts: I will add to my review when the rest of my rig gets here.
