1 out of 5 eggsAvoid at all costs.

Pros: It's cheap and simple.

Cons: Came out of the box broken; I took the back panel off, still in "wow new stuff this is great" mode only to find that the back panel would not come back on because, get this, they use the most insignificant and pathetic parts--the panels connect with three little, and I mean little, tiny plastic notches that were all warped and completely misaligned.

Most likely, whoever was assembling it hated their job and didn't care, so they jury-rigged it, forced the panel inside (despite there being no earthly way it would fit) and made me pay full price for it.

Nope. Threw it outside, destroyed it, will not buy again. I'm out $50-$60 but it's the principle of the matter. Rosewill lost a customer.

Other Thoughts: I absolutely WILL not tolerate this at all. I'm used to getting swindled by worthless companies for stuff that I've purchased, but when it comes to computers I absolutely will not accept unfinished work. The pieces of this tower are still in my front yard and I plan to finish the job with a bat.

If I had any true advice it's just ignore the name Rosewill. When it comes to this type of stuff I give companies one chance and one chance only. Rosewill blew it. Goodbye, never purchasing from you again.

Also, Newegg, that's strike one. I'm not at all impressed by the service I've been presented with so far, even if the other parts I purchased all work well. I don't accept failure.

5 out of 5 eggsRosewill Line M mATX Case

Pros: This case is fantastic in my opinion. The front panel I/O ports which have both two USB 2.0 and two USB 3.0 ports is a great plus. There aren't many other mATX cases out there with 4 USB ports on the front of the case. The airflow is fantastic as well. I replaced both stock fans. In the rear I have a Delta 3400rpm 120mm fan, and in the front I have a Rosewill 120mm LED fan which spins at 2000rpm compared to the stock fan which I think spins at around 1400rpm. I put some Silverstone 120mm dust filters on the side panel to help keep the inside of the case cleaner. I don't have anything bad to say about the case. It looks great, has clean lines and is easy to build in, although it is missing good cable management space. However, a modular style power supply is highly recommended by me to reduce the amount of clutter cables in the case.

What I have inside my Line M:
ASUS A88XM-PLUS Motherboard
AMD A10-7850K APU
Western Digital Black 1TB HDD
8GB GSKILL Ram running at 2133mhz
Corsair CX750M Power Supply

With the fans I run with, the motherboard temps never rise above 30 degrees celsius, and even with the stock cooler on the CPU, it never reaches above 60 degrees celsius running at full load. Very impressed with the airflow this case has to offer.

Cons: None at all.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It's a decent case for the price; it has fans in the front and back and a toolless hard drive installation setup, which I did not use.

Cons: The front fan is loud, at least using the Molex connector (I do not have an extra port on my motherboard for it). I am also starting to dislike lights on cases/fans, this counts as a negative aspect for me. The side panels seem to leave 2mm or so uncovered when they slide in, so they do not quite fit as well as they could.

Other Thoughts: It's an ok case for the price.

4 out of 5 eggsLine M case

Pros: Small (not to small)
easy to work with
usb 2.0 and 3.0
quiet included fans
simple construction

Cons: Metal is slightly thin, do not try to force anything when building in this, or you will do damage. dont get me wrong, its similar to those pc's youd get from best buy or other pre built pc's. gets the job done, but you dont want it hit by a car.

Other Thoughts: perfect for what i need... which is a small upgradeable package. if you wanted, this case will hold an 8 core cpu, 32 gb ddr3 ram, and any graphics card out there, PLUS, you can throw a smaller gpu in if you wanted for accelerated physx. its a perfect micro atx case. no problems yet.

5 out of 5 eggsGood case for the price

Pros: Decent space, few tools needed, relatively quiet.

Cons: Need to carefully note port documentation

Other Thoughts: The case works well for my needs. The only con was that *I* didn't properly review the case documentation ahead of time to realize I couldn't use the USB3 ports with the motherboard I selected, so this was my fault and nothing to do with the case itself.

5 out of 5 eggsAs expected.

Pros: Very lightweight, roomy enough for just about any Micro-ATX build, inexpensive. Water cooling unit fit like a charm.

Cons: I'm not a fan (no pun intended) of the front grill cover. Front fan will require removal to meet my standards of pc cleanliness - and that's no fun.

Other Thoughts: Other than the aforementioned cons, this is well worth the money.
I installed an micro-atx mobo, Coolermaster Seidon 120V cooler, ssd, and a mechanical drive with no space issues.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: * Small tower case
* USB 3.0
* Holds everything I needed it to (HDD, SSD, DVD drive, USB card reader, PSU, FM2+ MoBo)
* Not ridiculous looking (very basic appearance)
* Comes with a speaker to hook up to your MoBo for debugging
* Comes with all black screws
* Comes with black zip ties
* Can fit a Cooler Master 212 (though not with side vent fans)

Cons: There are a few small negatives to the case, but none insurmountable:
* Tight working area
* Top-heavy build (50/50 my fault and cases fault)
* Not a lot of room for cable management

I'm using this case with an Asus A88XM-Plus/CSM for an A10-7850k build. With my old MSI motherboard there was a lot of room to fit the HDD on the rubber mounts on the bottom of the case which helped the fact that it was super top-heavy. With the Asus board, the USB 3.0 connector makes this impossible; however, the better board layout (IMO) let me put the HDD up by the DVD drive, SSD, and card reader.

With all the stuff I was trying to fit in, I found myself having to take the build apart and put it back together three times when I would get to a component I was pretty sure would fit, but couldn't quite squeak into place with something else blocking it. Reviews online say different order of components than worked for me, so just be aware that it's a tight fit and you'll need to plan out what your build calls for including spacing.

Cable management is one area everyone seems to knock this case for. I actually had a good amount of space to cram my cables into, but found myself wishing it looked prettier. Stuff will fit and be out of harm's way, but it's not going to look beautiful doing it. I found myself super glad that I had opted for a semi-modular PSU, but almost wish I just had a full modular PSU with this case.

Other Thoughts: When I ordered this I just left the default shipping since that has always been UPS for me. It shipped FedEx and the tracking was a nightmare. If you're ordering this via Newegg, do yourself a favor and pay the extra for UPS if it's an option for you.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Little Case

Pros: It provides great cooling for a tiny case. It's all black, inside and out which I wanted and it's pretty spacious inside.

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: I was able to fit a Corsair H80i Push/Pull in the front. It did fit in the back, but I wanted more space towards the middle.
