5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Mid Tower

Pros: - Size: To start with, this case is a good size. For a first time buyer/builder, such as myself, it is not so large that the room feels too small, but it commands a nice presence.
-Work Room: It leaves enough room to get in and work around inside, but if you are going to crossfire or SLI more than 2 cards and you need more than 2 or 3 HDDs, you need a new case. But if you are getting all that, you probably want something more expensive and larger anyways.
-Cable Management: Yes it has some cable management features, all the metal edges are nicely rolled, so you won't cut yourself or any cords. The drive and disk bays are more in the center of the case, so there's some nice room up towards the front.
-Expansion: There are 8 HDD slots, three 5.25 bays, and 7 PCI expansion slots. Granted if you have a large graphics card you'll take up the top 3 drive bays and 2 expansion slots, but that still leaves plenty underneath. The drive bays and slots all have tool-less mounting hardware, though it's only on one side, so if you want to have them on both sides, because I want them as secure as possible, you'll only have enough for 4 drives. And the drive bay connectors are non removable. Otherwise the modularity of the fascia, the PCI slots, HDD slots, and fan placement make this case very user friendly.
-Airflow: The whole front is mesh with spots for 6 fans (the seventh is for the PSU, so I think it's false advertising to count it, shame NZXT), so air flow is great. This should keep your rig running nice and cool. I cannot vouch for whether a radiator will fit (though it looks like it might) the top holes, but it will definitely fit the bottom or rear fan holes, if you wanted a single fan radiator or built your own loop. Hopefully I will actually do this at some point.
-Aesthetics: It's a really great looking case. The fascia has some angular accents and the all black mesh looks really nice with the LED fans. The window on the side just tops it all off with a nice view of your hand-built rig. Definitely enough room to also put some extra accent lighting in as well.
-Manual: Pretty bare bones, just a big picture, but you really don't need more than that when you combine it with all the other manuals you get with all the rest of your components.

Cons: Honestly it was really hard to come up with some negative criticism about this case, but no case is perfect so I documented what I could.
-Cable Management: The attached fans don't have the longest cables and the ends have pin connectors and Molex, so you'll have to cut off the Molex if you aren't connecting them directly to power or a fan controller. Also a lot of the cords are already cable tied together. I would've rather they just given me a few extra cable ties (only comes with 2) and not tied any of the cords together and let me figure out where I wanted them. There isn't a ton of room behind the mounting wall, but it is do-able. Also the holes in the mounting wall are not rubberized.
-Fit: It doesn't appear that there is enough room for a radiator above the mobo and rear fan. Due to having a dual fan slot on top of the case, it would've been nice to see a bit more room up there, but this isn't a full tower, so it makes sense.

Other Thoughts: None of the cons are large enough to warrant deducting an egg and I really had to try to think of any negatives at all aside from the room behind the mounting wall and I made it work just fine. Shipping from NewEgg was quick and the box arrived unharmed with great packaging. I've really gotta hand it to them on that. I ordered Sunday morning and received the case Tuesday afternoon. The window really looks great and the 3 included fans was a great deal. I am not sure of the quality of fans, but I will update at a later time on quality. It would've been nice to have a few more zip ties, but really those are something I should have on hand anyways. Looking forward to adding some lighting accents and using this case for several builds to come. It really is a great deal and I highly recommend this case to anyone looking for any type of rig that's not an extreme gaming rig with multiple graphic cards and water cooling.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Love the look of this case.
Comes with three white LED fans.
Big side window.
Very good build quality for this price.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I did quite a lot of shopping around for a case for my latest build. I tend to go for cases that I find aesthetically pleasing and in the end I went with this one rather than the Define R5 from Fractal Design. The tie breaker was the bigger side window.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Case for the Price

Pros: 3 Quiet white LED fans
Lots of mesh for great airflow
Side window
Real front 3.0 USB (Not pass through like similar priced cases)
Case looks pretty good specially for the price (I bought case when it was $49.99 with the 10$ rebate.
Plenty of room for cable management (I did use Mod PS and I cut off the original zip tie holding the front case wires)
I used my own zip ties for cable management so I had no issues.

Cons: Mostly None for this price.
Only thing I can complain about is the front USB ports seem just a bit shallow. My USB items can be pulled out a little easier than I would like but nothing worth deducting an egg for.

Other Thoughts: After reading some of the other review I have had no issues that a few others had experienced.
I did however take my time when I installed everything. Maybe others rushed??
For this price range I could not find a better case. It came with more fans than any others and had lots of airflow.
I would recommend this case for those who are on a budget build.

4 out of 5 eggsNice Case, Nice Price

Pros: Bought this case for my first ever build ($59.99). 3 L.E.D FANS!!! They run surprisingly quiet at 2000rpm. Window looks sharp. 1 usb 3.0 out front. lots of room for more fans. Lots of room to tuck wires away. Looks Like a sleeper until it fires up.

Cons: No grommets for passing wires through. Threads for motherboard stands had to be run through before installed the stands (not a big deal) Could use a couple inches on front fan wires, no dust filters, buttons seem a little cheap

5 out of 5 eggsSleek and cool

Pros: Comes with 3 fans, spots for 3 more.

Back wiring panel to clean up wires

Easy remove/attach storage drive slots

Multiple motherboard size capabilities

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Two front fans and a back fan, LED.

Bought 3 more fans to put one on bottom and two on top to create a smooth airflow system.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Bang for the Buck

Pros: - Price to Features Ratio
- Cooling (Came with 3 LED fans and has room for 3 more)
- Easy of Use (Screw-less Design)
- Side Panel Window (Nice touch for showcasing)

Cons: - No Dust Filters for fans

Other Thoughts: The cables leading to the front panel are held tight from the cable ties on the motherboard tray and if they are still restrained the front panel will be very limited on movement. This could cause the cables to be cut if the operator is not careful.
