4 out of 5 eggsGreat case fo $$

Pros: There's inexpensive cases and then there are cheap cases. This case falls with the inexpensive category. Absolute breeze to work on. Stand off placement and strength is good. Nice to see rolled edges on a lower end case. Less stitches and band-aids for me!

Cons: My only gripe is that it is a pain to get a hard drive to sit flush to give the case some room so the HD doesnt crowd the mother board! Front case cabling gets in the way and having to reroute and secure the cabling with zip ties so they dont coil up on you is i how i fixed that issue

Other Thoughts: The front optical drive panels are pretty neat!

5 out of 5 eggsNice case for an excellent price

Pros: Nice sleek black design, much better inside design than my e-machine t3504 case. excellent price and everything went in pretty good with a little work.

Cons: The metal is a little flimsy not too bad though also the case has its own little cd drive button you have to align your drive up with the button wasn't bad though thought it was kinda cool except the button is a little awkward to press and its kinda hard to press it again when the tray is out i just push the tray back in myself but for the price no eggs off.

Other Thoughts: definitely recommend it if your on a low budget and want something with a sleek design and solid build 5/5

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Good price range and very fast delivery by Newegg

Cons: Very light weight but not cheap
For CD drive you have to work for to fit it in but it's not so big deal
I was going to buy one more but it sold out for the moment :(

Other Thoughts: Nice case very hansom looking and it does what you need for basic system build
I am going to buy more of these

5 out of 5 eggsUm, *what*? Excuse me while I laugh at some of the ratings here...

Pros: * 92/80mm fan opening in back
* 120/92/80mm fan opening in front and back
* case front can be removed by releasing simple little tabs (Yes! And it can be done without dynamite or impact wrenches!)
* can hold up to five 3.5" hard drives
* motherboard standoffs are solid, at least for anyone who doesn't try to apply 1,570 ft/lbs of force on the motherboard screws
*

Cons: * it won't support the weight of a car
* some people still expect paper washers, which haven't been seen by anyone on planet earth since 1993, and that includes this case (I'm banging my head on a wall right now)
* the paint on the case sides will scratch, unfortunately, if you smash plates on it
* the metal will bend if you put it under a desk with the kitty litter and take turns kicking it into submission

To quote a line from the movie "Disclosure": "This is a sophisticated piece of electronic equipment, not a pickup truck."

Other Thoughts: For "CR" and his "review":
1) The LED lights didn't work because you didn't try to reverse the connector. So much for your "high" technical knowledge.
2) "Bend the front of the case" to get the fan in? Remind me to never let you work on *anything* I own. You'd probably try to fix a faucet by smashing it with a sledge hammer.
3) Lining up an optical drive is child's play, at least for most of us. "The metal case bends too much"? Um, nevermind.
4) The back plate can be easily bent backwards as far as possible, then bent back and forth until it separates. If you've ever done this correctly, you won't leave any "burs".
6) Take some spelling lessons. "Junkey", "barley", and "supper"?
7) The screws on the 3.5" bay are too far away? You have "high" technical knowledge, but no magnetic screwdrivers, or any idea why those giant openings are there?

This is a well-designed and well-manufactured case, at least for anyone with an IQ greater than their age (which seems rare lately).

1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT BUY!!!

Pros: its a cheep case

Cons: Mine cam with a bad bruise on the back end for the right side panel. Shipping box was not damage so poor quality control. Front slot for 120mm fan has no access. You will have to bend part of the case to get the fan in. Front stripe lights don't work on mine (would have disabled since i am building a supper low power comp) Cd-rom drive buttons don't work well because you have to line your cd-roms up perfectly. The metal on the case bends to much to do this. The 3.5 external bay is so far tot he one side it is near impossible to get the screws in from the right side. The back plate is nearly impossible to remove and when you do it leave burs. i needed to use wire snips to cut out the extra pieces so the one with my mobo would fit.

Other Thoughts: I bought this for a supper low power computer and figured since it wasn't going to be scene this junkey case would work. It barley worked and took so much extra install time. Total junk, do not buy. Quality control stinks, case is flimsy and nothing lines up.

5 out of 5 eggsHas what i want

Pros: I got this case for the generally small size for a htpc i am building. Being only 30 dollars i got what i expected, Which was not lan li quality but i dont need that for this build either.
I expected a thin gauge metal and some sharp edges but who cares, im not gonna be lugging it to any lan parties. I got it for the size and the amount of internal 3.5 inch bays for hard drives other than that it was nice that it came in black.

Cons: eehhh the usual with a 30 dollar case but that is what i bought so no buyers remorse here!

Other Thoughts: I am Giving it 5 EGGS because i am reviewing it as a 30 dollar case, not a 100 dollar one.

Which is how people should compare products!

4 out of 5 eggsI got what I paid for and I'm happy with it.

Pros: I bought this case and got what I expected. This case has good airflow but thats only if you buy fans which arent included in the case. It took alittle work but I got everything in there.

Cons: Very thin metal
No case fans.
Gloss is a finger print magnet.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Cheap, light-weight. LED in the front is a plus.

Cons: The backplate was almost impossible to get off, the front panel does not come off (prevents an intake fan from being installed), and the entire design of the case is horrid. It may be MicroATX, but you can get a way better case for just $10 more.

Other Thoughts: If it all possible, look for a bit of a better case.
