3 out of 5 eggs"Steel" ain't what it used to be

Pros: Access into the case is easy. There are multiple options for securing drives in the bays. Internal connectors were well-labeled.

Haven't powered up the full system yet to hear (or not hear) the two case fans.

Cons: Shipping box and packing material not strong enough to withstand the saboteurs who stalk our nation's shipping warehouses. Even though the box showed no outward signs of damage, the bottom rear of the computer case was stove in a good five millimeters and the corners of the side panels were bent so far as to crack the black finish off from the metal. I had to use some brute force to un-bend the case far enough to shoehorn a power supply in its proper place.

Mounting holes in mobo plate have poor threading. While the provided standoffs are still usable, a nice hex-driver is highly recommended to get them in.

A tad mystified yet regarding the side-panel fan with the conventional 12v 4-pin Molex connector -- which is female -- as are all the connectors from my evga power supply. A male-male adapter is *not* something I was expecting to need!

Other Thoughts: I would not normally hold shipping damage against a product itself, but there was so little crush space allowed for in the packing of this particular case that it smacks of carelessness.

4 out of 5 eggsRedbone U3

Pros: Pros:
Case is 50 dollars, it's very spacious which will likely make it nice for first time builders and the like.
Features the tooless lock thingys, which are nice for mounting SSDs.
Relatively okay build quality, but don't expect much. The metal is pretty thin.
Attractive case, very conservative. Red and black goes well with almost all amd cards.
Lots of expansion (HDD, optical drives, SSDs)

Cons: Cons: (so far at least)
Build quality: see above
Lack of motherboard standoffs; the case included 7, but there are 10 marked (ATX) slots for them to screw into. This left me a little confused as to which ones to place where. I opted for all four corners, center, and two on the left side where the pci slot is. I don't know if it is common practice for cases to ship without all the standoffs....?
The placeholders between the pci slots were very hard to get off, and bent my slot a little bit. Once again, the metal is very thin.
Fans are pretty much garbage (these will be coming out soon for some Corsair 120 Quiets)
Plastic clips that held in the placeholders for the optical drives on the front panel are very easy to break. Mine has stress fractures in it just from pressing down gently to release the placeholder.
Rubber gromits around the bottom of the PSU, but none near the optical drives or the HDD cage.
Says it includes a bit to drive the mother board standoffs, but one was not included
No power cord included

Other Thoughts: Overall: Cheap case, but effective for what it does. Very roomy. Shoddy build quality in some areas, but its my first build so I'll let it slide this time. Next time I'll definitely be going for something around the $100 range. I'm pretty disappointed about the lack of motherboard standoffs. Rosewill, if you are listening.. please don't cut corners like this.

4 out of 5 eggsGood looking; workable internals

Pros: The case is good looking with a red LED in front and red/black(both outside and inside, incase anyone want to do a custom window) colour scheme.

Everything inside is fair(not great, but good enough); wire management isn't too bad. A workable case with a bit of pre-planning but not the easiest.

3 fans is nice if one does not care about noise(with headphone on they are mostly non-issue).

Did I mention it looks good? That's why you buy it. It's a lot more difficult to find a case at same price that looks better(imo) than it is to deal with slightly more annoying insides of this case.

Cons: Quality is not so consistent; mine arrived with steel under psu slightly bent, but functioned just fine after everything is built; but others have power button fall out...etc.

But if you get a good one; it's good to go.
If you get a bad one; newegg will take care of you. Not much problem there other than having to wait a few more days.

The only significant negative is really the pci slot covers; you have to punch them out by force so ideally you need to line up motherboard/gpu then punch out the one you need(which is why I

Other Thoughts: For the price it does what I needed it to do: have usb 3.0 on front and look good.

Internals can be dealt with by better skill.

3 out of 5 eggsEhhh, not great

Pros: -cheap
-has fans
-fit my r9 280

Cons: -bad air flow
-bad cable management even with a modular power supply

Other Thoughts: Bad air flow + bad cable management is a nightmare combination if you have components that generate a moderate amount of heat like my fx6300 and r9 280. I have to run this case with the side panel off and a floor fan blowing into it just to keep my temps down. Wish I would not have cheaped out and bought this case when purchasing my build. Now I'm just going to spend another $100 on a quality case like I should have done in the first place. Wasted $40-50 on this.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Value

Pros: Looks fantastic, plenty of room for my build, great cooling, pretty quiet (I know some said the fans were loud but I didn't find them to be so)

Cons: Not enough spacers for an ATX MB, what a strange thing to short on!, front panel pulls off a little too easily, no room for cable management, it looks like it ate an octopus since I don't have a modular PS to use.

Other Thoughts: I'm thrilled how nice this looks and performs for the price, Buy one!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

Pros: The case was very well priced, the size was great, and ventilation isnt an issue with the proper amount of fans.

Cons: The only real issue I had with the case was the power and reset buttons on the front panel, they seem to pop out of place way too easily while building the machine.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case for price

Pros: Nice looks, price, usb3, room for video card

Cons: Header for front USB 3 not included.

4 out of 5 eggsAfter 1 year, still holds up

Pros: I've had this case for around a year now, and it still works just as good as the first day I got it. It has a few plastic mounts for the internal bays, so you don't have to screw in everything, but there aren't enough for all of them, so if you plan to use all of the bays, you'll need to screw in a few components.

It also has 2 USB 3.0 ports in the front, as well as an eSATA port. I never use the eSATA port, but its nice to know its there if I ever need one.

The case looks really cool with the LEDs in the front, and the red accents.

Also has nice solid rubber feet so if it moves across your desk it won't scratch it up.

Cons: As several other reviews have stated, the front USB ports are mounted to the case upside down. This doesn't affect the way they work in any way, its just kind of annoying. How hard is it to just mount it the right way to start with? T

here is almost no room behind the motherboard to stick loose wires. So, if you're a fan of clean wiring in your PC, you'll have a hard time with this case. Yet another problem that could be very easily solved by rosewill...

The side mounted fan is very loud. Some complain that it distracts them while gaming, but I don't have much of a problem just tuning it out, or putting on some headphones (you can still here it with headphones, but not as much).

More recently, I have had a problem with the front of the case starting to come off when I unplug stuff from the USB ports. This is not a very big deal as it just pops right back on. I just hold the front now with one hand when I unplug stuff from the front.

The side panels are also a bit of a pain to get off. You have to mess with it for a little while, and even then, I still put it on crooked sometimes and I have to unscrew it again to fix it.

Other Thoughts: Overall this is a very good case, and I am very pleased with it. As I said, it has served me well for over a year now. It just makes me wonder though, most of the cons are things that are very easily fixed, and would make the case just that much better. For ex. it wouldn't cost them anything more to mount the USBs on correctly...It also wouldn't take much effort to put a little more extra room behind the motherboard for wiring. The extra metal used would be so minimal it wouldn't make much difference at all in price so again, why not fix it?
