4 out of 5 eggsGreat Value Mini ITX Case

Pros: Quite P/S, spacious interior, all cable harnesses included (front panel audio, USB, etc.) even comes with an old-fashioned "speaker"!

Cons: Only 234W P/S, not 250W as advertised. Bigger than I expected for mini-ITX

Other Thoughts: As mentioned, this case is a bit larger than I expected. It has room enough for a 5.25" drive (CD/DVD/etc.) as well as a 3.5" floppy/MM reader, etc. The case is light and the P/S is quiet. A little caveat emptor here: the case came with a 236W P/S, NOT a 250W as advertised. Not complaining as it is enough to handle the ECS mainboard I threw at it, just not what I expected (hence, 4 stars). Other than that, a good unit. I've used Rosewill equipment before and find it to be of better than average quality, usually. Would recommend this to anyone of any skill level. One note: when mounting your mainboard, I recommend yanking the P/S...will save you some headaches with the screwdriver and it's an easy pop-out/pop-in.

2 out of 5 eggsGot this in a combo, would never buy again

Pros: It's small, compact, and fits on the tv stand well.

Cons: Got this with a combo that I don't think anyone at newegg attempted to build! The combo included gskill ripjaws X series ram, a MSI AM1I motherboard, a WD 1TB blue, a athlon 5350, and this case. The LED's are understated and easy to miss, perhaps a little too easy to miss. The ram's high heatsinks meant that you could not put the hard drive in the bay below the optical drive bay, the power supply configuration meant that your optical drive could not be too long or it wouldn't leave you with enough room for the non-right angle sata power connectors to fit, the case is of cheap construction, as is the power supply (Looking at the internal build I don't really expect it to last I'm thinking of buying a small itx/power brick for the system and fabricating a mount for the fan and it's connector, which will help with the cooling and the being unable to install my bluray burner into the case), the side mount hard drive doesn't get any active airflow over it in the standard configuration, and the connector for the front audio had to be stretched to make it to the fitting on my MSI AM1I. Since I also had a SSD and an optical drive as mentioned before I had to get really creative with the placements of everything, including the processor fan which I had to mount diagonally because if it was underneath the power supply, and thus it's fan, it made a really irritating noise because both fans were fighting eachother (blowing opposite directions).

Other Thoughts: Newegg! if you offer a combo please build it out and see how it goes together, if it will go together!

I cannot stress enough if you buy this case, you must think about the thermals, don't put anything hot in it, think of where that psu comes down, think of where you can wedge fans in and how you are going to modify the cooling system on the case, motherboard, or heaven help you graphics card in order to make the best use of the design that they built this case with. Don't expect wires to be long enough or well thought out enough for you to be able to make things look pretty either. I'm not sure what motherboard this case was designed around, but if you can find it, perhaps the configuration makes more sense.

I gave it two stars because I dragged it kicking and screaming into being mostly what I wanted it to be.

4 out of 5 eggsA little Cramped for space

Pros: Fair price
Attractive yet simple look
Comes with PSU
Front panel USB and HD Audio

Cons: Space issue between the HDD and the CPU Cooler

Other Thoughts: This is a great looking case and seems to run pretty cool considering its size, The only thing i dont like is that the way the HDD Tray was designed it sits right next to the CPU Cooler be warned if you have a rather large CPU Cooler this is not the case for you. My board running the stock Intel cooler was a chore to get the HDD mounted and out of the coolers way, you must use right angled SATA cables to use this case due to the space limits between the CPU Cooler and the HDD. Other wise a nice case with a small footprint but still attractive to look at.

3 out of 5 eggsBasic working case

Pros: -- Cheap build, compact design, good for building a small NAS server
-- Working as I expect
-- Enough space to put in two hard drives, a DVD drive, board and memory
-- The power supply is a plus

Cons: Just so so quality, one of the front panel broken in first day, when I installed the system. But it's OK, no problem to affect me to install and use it without it.

Other Thoughts: For the price tag and the size, this is good enough for me to build my own server.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little toaster box

Pros: Small form factor, perfect for the kitchen desk/bar area.
The machine is virtually noiseless and produces very little heat.

Cons: None really, see Other Thoughts..

Other Thoughts: This is a small form factor box... This is probably not the best box to build with your kids on xmas day as there was barely enough room to maneuver the AMD/MSI board into it. I thought I ruined the CPU fan because it bound was hung up and did not seem to fit into the hole for mounting the board because the CPU fan was about 2mm too thick. But, alas it's in there and it works.
Others have said the power supply has gone out, but this one is still silently working, so fingers crossed.
I bought this a bundled deal and we're quite happy with it. I never used the hard drive, replaced it with a 240Gb AMD SSD. Boot to usable desktop in 9 seconds.

The setup (bundled deal + SSD):
MSI AM1I AM1 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Motherboard
AMD Athlon 5350 Kabini Quad-Core 2.05GHz Socket AM1 25W Desktop Processor
CORSAIR Vengeance LP 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
AMD Radeon SSD RADEON-R7SSD-240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III (made by OCZ)

5 out of 5 eggsRS-MI-01 mini itx case

Pros: Good little case for what it is. PS included is a bonus. Small enough to fit in a bookshelf or in the entertainment center.

Cons: Not necessarily a con, but something others have mentioned is the HDD tray won't accept an HDD if the MB ram slots are under it. I had to mount it to the side rail which I'm guessing was intended for an HDD but the hole spacing was just enough off that only one screw could be used. Adequate as it is never moved.

Other Thoughts: The PS sits extremely close to the CPU. The Athlon 5350 fit with the stock CPU cooler but with very little clearance. Enough for adequate cooling for a low power CPU. If the cooler had been much taller it would not have fit and would have had to order a slim fan for it.

4 out of 5 eggsNice Case

Pros: Small and compact design, with included 200W power supply.

Cons: Bad HDD placement for most boards. Best to get a board with side ram slots.

Other Thoughts: To fit a regular HDD, I used 2 zip ties and tied the HDD under the HDD cage.

4 out of 5 eggsThat'll do Case, That'll do

Pros: Very compact case. Comes with the bare essentials, includes a power supply, and is pretty cheap for all of that. You can put a very basic computer in it, which is what you're probably going to do anyway if you're buying this.

Cons: Has the power supply above the motherboard. I wish this were flipped vertically, and the motherboard was above the power supply. Because of this, if you're going to use an Intel CPU, the stock fan won't fit, so this case will come with the hidden cost of buying a slim fan. A lot of cases use this design though, so you're not going to really get away from this cost.

Other Thoughts: Reading the other reviews of this case, it seems the power supply enjoys a good failure, which makes me worry about using it. I did buy a back-up SFX power supply, but there are no reputable companies making SFX power supplies, so all you have for selection is a sea of garbage, and at that point, it might be worth buying a ITX tower that you can put a regular power supply in. That being said, I haven't had any issues with this power supply yet. I put in a fairly simple motherboard, cpu, optical drive, and an SSD into and nothing else. It's a computer that very simply runs Windows, Internet Explorer, and Microsoft Office, and that's about all the things I would use for a computer I could put into this case. I don't know what the rest of you are doing, but if you're trying to run Crysis 3 on max settings or Adobe Photoshop on this power supply, that's a bad idea. You're doing nothing beyond basic computing with this power supply.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little box

Pros: I've been using this as an HTPC for about 6 months now. It's a perfect size to stash behind a couch or on a shelf but roomy enough for build a machine without banging up your hands. Although I don't recall any sharp edges anyhow.

Cons: Not really a Con but I would suggest using a motherboard with an integrated CPU/minimal sized cooling.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy this for your gaming rig or anything you'll need to get inside often. If you're building a console/HTPC type machine and know how to use a ruler this may be perfect for what you're looking to do.

3 out of 5 eggsProblems Already... Warning...

Pros: Great size, Seemed like a good idea at the time of purchase.

Cons: Already starting to have some issues, such as several reboots and when it shuts down, you have to remove the power cord to get it to start up. This happens multiple times, I do not see any heating issues. Just seems to be a problem that may get worse as it goes on.
Running Windows 10 preview... could have some problems but I don't think the constant reboots are part of it. Works pretty well after it runs awhile.

Other Thoughts: I have build a lot of PC's but this one was a little more difficult due to the micro size of the components.
