2 out of 5 eggsJust Ok budget case

This review is from: Rosewill REDBONE U3 - Mid Tower Computer Case - Black SECC Steel, USB 3.0, eSATA, 3 x 120mm Fans

Pros: Low price. Reasonable quality overall. Good fit for everything, decent cable management and looks good.

Cons: Received with damaged top corners as several others have reported. Packing supports look inadequate. Front USB ports are upside down and very poor quality. Difficult to insert USB plug. Side fan is has somewhat annoying whine to it.

Other Thoughts: It's working for now, but wish I spent a little more for better quality.

4 out of 5 eggsGood product for the price

This review is from: Rosewill REDBONE U3 - Mid Tower Computer Case - Black SECC Steel, USB 3.0, eSATA, 3 x 120mm Fans

Pros: Good construction and painted inside just as well as the outside. Plenty of cooling options and clearance for case fans, water cooling, and large CPU air coolers. Great looks.

Cons: No removable filters. Front panel has sponge in it which gets dusty quickly but is difficult to clean well. The case uses thin metal which feels flimsy. I don't like LED fans which this case includes stock. The 3.5-inch floppy bay port stands out when not being used.

Other Thoughts: The thin metal gave me no trouble during assembly. My CM Hyper 212 CPU cooler fit into the case without issues. This is one of my favorite budget Rosewill cases I've used recently.

2 out of 5 eggsUpdated review after six months

This review is from: Rosewill REDBONE U3 - Mid Tower Computer Case - Black SECC Steel, USB 3.0, eSATA, 3 x 120mm Fans

Pros: I have already written a review on this case when I first bought it and well my opinions haven't changed. There have been some developments though in regards to build quality.

Cons: Front panel is cheap. This almost warrants not buying the case. The hd and power led's both died. Both USB 3's are mounted upside down, for what??? Also, one of my USB 3 only works for power, doesn't recognize flash media or external drives. I can't speak for the front panel audio because I don't use.

Wish I could remove 5.25 bays for another 120mm intake fan. I think that would help my temps.

Other Thoughts: In hindsight, I would put 60 dollars towards something else.

3 out of 5 eggsFits the bill

This review is from: Rosewill REDBONE U3 - Mid Tower Computer Case - Black SECC Steel, USB 3.0, eSATA, 3 x 120mm Fans

Pros: Cheap, looks good, front connectors, good space for Mid Tower

Cons: cheaply built, could have more room, loud

Other Thoughts: Got this for a budget video editing build. It protects the expensive stuff? It works fine for the price paid, I wish it were a little roomier but at that point i should just go with a full tower. Airflow isnt too bad but it is LOUD. Looking for quieter fans now...

3 out of 5 eggsReceived Lightly Damaged

This review is from: Rosewill REDBONE U3 - Mid Tower Computer Case - Black SECC Steel, USB 3.0, eSATA, 3 x 120mm Fans

Pros: Very nice case, love the colors, and a good price.

Cons: It had damage when I took it out of the box on one of the side panels where the screw holds it on. Seems to maybe have been dropped and over looked before being boxed into the Styrofoam and such.

Other Thoughts: Besides the damage it's a nice case, I can't actually try it out though until I have all my parts. I don't know about fixing the side panel myself though so I may get the part replaced.

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: Rosewill REDBONE U3 - Mid Tower Computer Case - Black SECC Steel, USB 3.0, eSATA, 3 x 120mm Fans

Pros: Good design, seems sturdy, has three fans already. A good buy for a mid sized tower. Would recommend to anybody!

Cons: The rear cover for the CPU outputs is a little flimsy but not too big of a deal.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Starter case

This review is from: Rosewill REDBONE U3 - Mid Tower Computer Case - Black SECC Steel, USB 3.0, eSATA, 3 x 120mm Fans

Pros: This case is a very good starter case for someone that is new to PC gaming. It looks clean and has a little "cool" to it with the lighted fan in the front. It is very good with airflow and has all of the needed bays. This case is easy to clean and has enough room to accomodate most entry level PC builds.

Cons: There is little to no room in the back pannel for any semblance of cable management, I had to make room in the HDD bays to stuff my cables. The fan on the side pannel is LOUD, so loud that I would have to turn off my computer and unplugg that fan if I knew that I was going to be talking on my microphone. The drive bay covers were also a pain to remove.

Other Thoughts: Overrall i think that this case is probably the best that you can get for the price. You may want to get a different fan for the side pannel as it will be an annoyance. When I originally bought this case it did everything I needed, after some upgrades it was no longer the case for me. I have since given it to a friend for his first PC build and he couldnt be happier with them

4 out of 5 eggsCant complain..too much...

This review is from: Rosewill REDBONE U3 - Mid Tower Computer Case - Black SECC Steel, USB 3.0, eSATA, 3 x 120mm Fans

Pros: One thing is for sure, red is sexy, and this case pulls it off quite well.

*plenty of room
*plenty of options for PC configurrations
*Plenty of bays

Cons: As many have noticed the quality is kinda meh, but for 39 bucks, you cant complain, too much.

I knocked off an egg for theses three reasons
*the sound/microphone jacks are not properly shielded/poorly ground

*the side panel is a pain to get back on/off once it warps even a little (which is all to easy)

*Even tho it can fit five fans, dont count on getting them all in there, as a full PSU blocks the lowest on and a big after market cpu cooler will block the top

Other Thoughts: But despite the cons i gave rosewill has an overall good product for the buck, so if your on a limb on buying this, dont hesitate if you are looking for a decent case for a budget build.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat case

This review is from: Rosewill REDBONE U3 - Mid Tower Computer Case - Black SECC Steel, USB 3.0, eSATA, 3 x 120mm Fans

Pros: I have two of these cases. No sharp edges, easy HD and systemboard installation. Comes with all the parts needed. What I like most about it is the ports are all at the top of the case and easy to get to if you put it under your desk.

Cons: Not a big con and did not take away an egg for it but the front USB ports are USB 3.0 only. I bought this for an older systemboard that did not have 3.0 ports. I ended up buying an addon USB 3.0 card to solve the problem.

Other Thoughts: Used it to put some spare parts to use...older Intel Core 2 duo and a Sapphire 5770 video card. Works great.

4 out of 5 eggsGood ! for the $

This review is from: Rosewill REDBONE U3 - Mid Tower Computer Case - Black SECC Steel, USB 3.0, eSATA, 3 x 120mm Fans

Pros: Great case. Great value for only $45! Lots of bays, three 120 fans. Lots of space for a full sized board with a huge 130mm Fan - Sans the side fan - More about that below. Really light. The red trim and red LEDs on the front fan were a bonus I didn't even realize the case had. Looks sexy enough.

Cons: I can't complain too much about the flimsiness - for $45, you can't expect tank quality panels. All the lights are red - except the power button. Blue. Why? The box appeared to have been opened/resealed and some of the panels were bent a bit and some scratches on the back, nothing huge or really noticeable. None of these are enough to knock an egg off though, even combined.

The side fan - Poorly executed. I *knew* when I bought the box, that the fan would have to move to accommodate the massive 130mm CPU fan. "No problem, the case supports up to five fans with mounting included," I thought. So I moved the fan down to the lower mounts on the panel. Hit the power supply. The upper and lower mounts on the panel are for 120mm, but there is no possible way to put a 120mm on the bottom mount with a full sized power supply. I ended up using the lower holes of the upper mount and the ventilation holes with washers to hang it.

The side fan is LOUD. It's made to connect straight to the PSU, so there's no MOBO control for the RPMs. It's always on. The other two fans go to the MOBO, and are quiet enough, even under the stress test I ran last night. But at idle, you hear the side fan screaming at max RPM.

TL:DR The side fan is the reason for the loss of the egg. Can't mount it on the bottom mount, no MOBO control, and Loud. Case feels flimsy and a stupid blue power light.

Other Thoughts: Overall, as a <$50 case, it's a good buy, can't knock the quality - too much. My only complaint is that side fan (and blue power light on a red case with red LEDs everywhere else...) Ok, I'm done now.
