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.

1 out of 5 eggsNice case, garbage PSU

Pros: Sleek, small, plenty of space for drives.

Cons: PSU died the THIRD time i tried to power on. No response to the power button at any outlet, even with everything but mobo plugged in.

Other Thoughts: They should either sell the case $10 cheaper with no PSU or include a better built PSU for $10 more. Ridiculous that now I have to find aa decent SFX power supply

4 out of 5 eggsThis case is a challenge

Pros: Adorably small
Comes with PSU
Pretty sturdy for the price

Cons: HD placement was not well thought out. If you use a full size 3.5" hd youll have to mount it underneath the designated HD bay otherwise youll be likely covering a ram channel or two. It would be wise to go with a board that has so-dimm. The stock AMD a4 kabini heatsink/fan combo just barely clears the PSU so airflow will be restrictive. I would suggest that processor only or go with a SoC solution. 5.25" drive bay cover is one of those flap deals that conceals your drives face, which is fine, but the button doesnt line up very well with mine forcing me to push the button kind of hard to get the disc drive to eject.

Other Thoughts: All in all this case was one of the more difficult builds I've ever done, it was challenging but in a fun way. Cable management isnt that bad but then again I have a lot of experience with it. This case is not for first time builds.

If I would be so bold as to tell you how to pick parts:
Go for AMD Kabini or SoC, not saying an intel wont fit but youre not getting an i3 in this case without a seriously low profile heatsink.
Get a 2.5" HDD or SSD, the case comes with adapter pieces for that style to fit in the 3.5" drive bay.
An 80mm case fan or two will fit in this case but if you put them on the left side youll be blocking any expansion ports you have...but I would still recommend using one as airflow is going to be poor.
Tuck your cables either under the drive bay or in between the PSU and disk drive if you have one.
Dont use the right angle style SATA connectors. At least dont use them on the HD.

2 out of 5 eggsRosewill - What a bunch or Jokers!

Pros: Nice small-factor case. I bought 6 of them. I can have 2 mirrored Hard Drives with a DVD ROM in the case.

Cons: Dumb Warranty. My PSU died and they want me to ship the entire case back. Thye cant swap the Power supply only! For the time and effort (and shipping cost) of swapping an entire case, I can buy a new PSU. Luckily I bought spare PSUs from Newegg for $19.99. I called Rosewill today and the moron said that is all they can do.

Other Thoughts: I highly recommend anyone with this case to buy 1-2 spare PSU (APEX AL-8250SFX) -- Newegg Item#: N82E16817154024. I am a reseller and I put these systems in my client's location. This is the last time I buy any Rosewill branded items for my clients. I will also make sure I let my colleagues know how inept this company is!

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible Horrible Case

Pros: Small

Cons: Hdd cables that come with case will not let you install the hdd in the right spot. front panel clips broke the first time i pulled it off. No room. No airspace. Do not buy this case i got so mad at the install i through it in the trash.

Other Thoughts: I didn't send the case back because it was a bundle and i just didn't want to spend the time messing with it. DO NOT BUY.

1 out of 5 eggsBAD POWER SUPPLIES

Pros: At least I haven't cut myself on these cases.

Cons: Bad Power Supplies

Other Thoughts: Bought 3 cases and the first night of use one power supply died. Within 2 weeks, the second power supply died. Just waiting on third power supply to die. Have already replaced the first PS at cost of over $50. Makes the "deal" not so much a deal.

1 out of 5 eggsThey use junk power supplies

Pros: Small, nice looking

Cons: I've seen others here complain about the power supply on this case and I've had two in a row. Took Rosewill 3 weeks to replace the first bad one.

Other Thoughts: I'd send everything back to Newegg, but it took Rosewill so long to get me a second bad power supply that the 30 day return policy is void now. I'm done doing business with Rosewill and Newegg.

5 out of 5 eggspart of a combo deal

Pros: Got as part of a combo deal. This works great as an Media center PC (MPC) case. Looks nice in a living room setting next to a TV set. Works great with a power sipping AM1 mobo and Kabini processor. There's room for a Blu-ray drive and multi card reader behind hidden doors. 250 watt ps puts out very little heat and is quiet. 3.5" hdd mounts in a weird location in the back opposite where a PCI16 video card would mount.

Cons: This case is kinda deep, maybe a little deeper that a typical VCR, something to pay attention to if your trying to fit this into your entertainment center. This would be lousy for an overclocked Intel core series system or anyting outside of MPC use. If your going that route consider getting N82E16811133260 with a decent power supply.

Other Thoughts: This case is great for an MPC machine(5 EGGS), meh for a desktop (3 EGGS, YMMV) , lousy if you're trying to fit a gaming rig inside (1 EGG).

3 out of 5 eggsEl Cheapo

Pros: Everyone likes the look of the case.
PSU works so far.

Cons: Very, very bad airflow. Everything in the case heats up because of it.
AMD's ~70mm high HSFs do not clear the PSU. Our A10-5800K's cooler did not fit.
Front panel's made of cheap plastic.

Other Thoughts: Front panel has working hatches.
You need a low profile HSF and a side fan for this case. Might be a good idea to get another case or upgrade to the larger m-ATX platform. You'll have more options.
