4 out of 5 eggsSimple, Elegant, Good Entry Level Case

Pros: - Comes well ventilated
- All panels line up well and create a very sleek case
- Easy to clean and maintain
- Top panel accessibility options are fantastic

Cons: - Grommets come off very easily
- Could use a hair more room for wiring

Other Thoughts: Very solid case in design, material, and use. I love having a hit-swappable HDD bay on the top. The power and reset buttons are very firm and sturdy when depressed.

1 out of 5 eggsLooks great and good air flow, BUT...

Pros: - Looks awesome!
- Plenty of air flow
- Cleans easily -- just vacuum the mesh all around
- Very sturdy and stable
- Nice tall feet to ensure airflow clearance above carpet

Cons: - (-2 eggs) The built-in SATA dock on top of the case was a major selling point for me. Unfortunately, it's malicious. It worked OK initially, but at some point it started behaving weirdly with I/O errors. I thought my drives docked there were going bad, but after mounting them internally and running both SMART and low-level mfg diagnostics, I found there was nothing wrong with them. It's the dock. So that major selling point for me is gone. It lost 2 eggs from me for this point alone.
- (-1.5 egg) Not enough space at the top of the case for the top connector panel. I installed a BDRW 5.25" in the very top slot so that I could install another optional fan in the remaining 5.25" bays. I had a very difficult time getting the 5.25" drive mounting in that top slot and it really crowded and mashed the wiring for that top connector panel pretty badly. While most of those ports seem to work ok (other than the dock problems previously mentioned), the HDD LED has never worked from the day I got it. It wasn't worth doing a return, so I just let it go, but it's very annoying. I knock off half an egg for my non-functional HDD LED and an additional whole egg because this is a serious design oversight and I'm sure others will have more serious issues with their top connectors than just the HDD LED.
- (-0.5 egg) I hate thumb screws. While the cable management system in this case is decent (once you learn your contortionist moves to use it), it requires removing both side panels anytime you need to mess with the lower drive cage. Having to mess with 4 thumb screws (which never line up cooperatively when re-installing side panels) is a major aggravation and unnecessary time suck. Simple latch releases for these side panels would be much better. When I first received the case, I didn't know it was going to have thumb screws, and my buyer's remorse set in immediately. I would have dinged it a full egg over this when I first received the case. After having the case for 1.5 years, the above-mentioned issues have eclipsed the thumb screw perception as a petty nuisance docking only half an egg relative to the other major issues.

Other Thoughts: - I would not purchase this product again.
- I would only recommend this product to others under the following conditions:
* No drive will be placed in the top bay
* You won't use the SATA dock on top of the case (seriously, they should just remove it if it does more harm than good)
* You will regularly clean the mesh on the outside (and under/bottom) of the case
* You adore thumb screws and removing both side panels to mess with your lower drive cages
* Otherwise, keep looking.

5 out of 5 eggsSturdy case with lots of air flow!

Pros: Well built
So many fan bays!
Easy cable management and routing

Cons: None currently

Other Thoughts: This case is great! I had no issue installing any of my hardware.
I also love the number of fan mounts (and provided fans) this case came with! Because it doesn't really say anywhere, you get:
-1 140mm (included) or 2 120mm Top
-1 140mm (included) side window
-3 120mm (2 included) front. The 3rd mount is available if you only use the top drive bay
-1 120mm bottom
-1 120mm opposite side
-1 120mm (included) back

5 out of 5 eggsI'll never buy another case

Pros: -Excellent airflow
-So many preinstalled LED fans
-So many places to put more fans
-more than comfortable amount of space
-easy to manage cables

Cons: -there isn't much information on how to properly take out the HDD cages

Other Thoughts: I've had this case for a year and a half and I've had no problems with this case. After a bit of research on how to take out the HDD I cage took them out after about a year. The airflow doesn't seem restricted by the cages so taking them out doesn't offer any benefits except more space. This case is definitely worth the money.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: great front panel slots, great expansion, nice blue leds

Cons: really ugly, I have a mobo in my pc that lights red and a gpu that lightest green, and the blue lights are just not what I want , and the holes in the pc and overall flimsy quality are deal breakers it's also far to large for my standards, ugly and it has holes everywhere that let In dust. ugh

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case!

Pros: Great Cooling - 5 fans
Spacious
Back panel for wire management
Cool LEDs
Top panel ports (Including USB 3.0)

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Note: Two possible cons: The case is huge! It's closer to a full tower than a mid tower. Also the fans, while not loud, are audible. I don't care or notice, but some people seem to be bothered by fan noise. Just two things to be aware of.

Neither of these bother me though. It is a great case especially for the price. (Bought mine for $80)

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Airflow

Pros: Great case. looks awesome and has great airflow. The top and front LED fans are very bright

Cons: Cable Management is a bit tricky. There is a decent about of space on the right side but not enough zip tie points .

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this case to any1 who has a modular PSU. Without one....cable management might get messy.

3 out of 5 eggsGood Start Case

Pros: Big Case, tool-less drive trays, lots of drive trays, lots of fans, nice looking, side window

Cons: Doesn't fit larger CPU coolers like the Noctua NH-D15 and doesn't fit AIO Liquid coolers like the H100 Corsair AIO. The dust filters are hard to take off and put back on and are relatively useless it seems. The front and top fans are difficult to take off without taking the entire case apart. The cable management area behind the motherboard is thin and therefore difficult to do clean cable management with it. The side window fan can not be used with larger CPU coolers and produces an annoying cable infront of the side window. All of the fans running is relatively loud, and are all plugged into the PSU and not the Mobo. The front panel USB on the case are difficult to be plugged in to.

Other Thoughts: Is a good case if you just want a basic build. If you are thinking about upgrading into nicer components you might want to rethink a case since there is not much space in this case.
