5 out of 5 eggsExcellent build quality for the price

Pros: The colors of the case are a little darker than pictured, but it is far better than what I was expecting. I WAS expecting flimsy plastic and something to break off... Far from it. It did feel somewhat flimsy, but once you mount a motherboard and a DVD burner into it, the structure is far better than when it came out of the box. Yes, it is textured plastic, but it looks nice. Solid buttons and USB ports. Haven't tried the audio plugs yet. Fits everything I wanted. I got this for $21 with free Egg Saver Shipping. Definitely will buy another just like this if I need to. THE POWER BUTTON IS HUGE. If you can't see it, you're blind

Cons: I really have nothing bad to say.

Other Thoughts: On a budget? Buy me! Great for budget builds.

4 out of 5 eggsSimple, nice case

Pros: Simple, quiet, unobtrusive. Front panel USB 2.0. Blue power light lets me navigate the room easily...

Cons: Upper panel is thin and bends easily making the side panel not fit well. Don't lean on it.

Other Thoughts: Had to buy an adapter for the SSD, but that's not a debit in an inexpensive case, just a fact. I would give it a 5 if it exceeded my expectations, but it did meet them for a 4

4 out of 5 eggsDecent Budget Case

Pros: Got this to put in an older MicroAtx motherboard and hard drive from a computer that was given to me. I despised the beat up large case that it was in and this was much better. I have seen flimsier cases, this is a good quality case and what I would expect for thie price point. Using the computer to stream to the TV and as a Dropcam monitor. the case is nice because it fits in a small area.

Cons: I would note that I did not put a DVD player in this computer. I think it would be difficult to put either in this case. The header cables come down right in the DVD bay area. I used a smaller fanless video card and it fit in fine

Other Thoughts: I learned the hard way: you might need to put in the hard drive (standard 3.5) before the motherboard. I have never had run into this before, but there simply wasn't enough room to clear the motherboard heatsink on mine.

3 out of 5 eggsFragile

Pros: Cheap case
Everything fit nice and snug

Cons: Cheap case
All the plastic fp connectors were shattered on arrival

Other Thoughts: Could have simply been shoddy postal handling but I had to get creative to get the fp to secure to the case. Spend a little more money and get a better case.

1 out of 5 eggsPoor case

Pros: Looks ok

Cons: The drive will set out over the memory causing it to hit the top of the coolers. It also will be on top of the 24 pin plug for the motherboard(I used Gigabyte A series). The bottom of the case could have been a mount for a drive cage to take case of this problem. Also a few more inches long also would take care of it. One of the mounts for the motherboard is hard to get in and tighten down. The case itself is not bad to used for a cheap case for micro or mini boards. Just somebody needs to wake up and fix the problem

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent quick build case

Pros: Light and very simple to assemble for a simple build, something often lacking with inexpensive micro towers
top mounted on-switch a plus
strong enough for a cheap case
good air flow for a micro

Cons: The metal is thin, and will probably strip with repeated builds in the same case

Other Thoughts: I bought this case to use for a computer I put together for my wife. She picked it because it was 'cute'. 'Cute' as a primary reason to buy scares the hell out of me. But this was a very easy case to do a simple build. Everything went together easily, and it has a good amount of air flow. I added a CPU funnel to the side, and have never had a problem with this system, running a Core2Duo E6600.

4 out of 5 eggsRosewill FBM-02 Mini Tower Case

Pros: For a budget HTPC build, this is a great economic Mini Tower
For its price, the construction/aluminum casing is fine
Has 2 built in fans that comes with tower
Love the big power button!
2x USB 3.0 ports on the front
Fits full ITX power supplies
Can be used upside up or on put on its side

Cons: The cables that connect to the MoBo (pwr, reset, HDD, USB's) could ALWAYS be longer
CAUTION - the aluminum on the outsides are VERY sharp, I cut my finger while trying to lift it from the ground onto the table...USE GLOVES!
Fans are a little loud but for the price, can't really complain

Other Thoughts: For its price, you can't go wrong as long as you don't need a fancy, full of LED lighting Mini Case.

I'm using it for my HTPC build in the living room and the black finish goes great with my other electronics (PS4, Yamaha AV Receiver).

5 out of 5 eggsnice little case for the price

Pros: well the price of this case was great on special ~$20 it has a 120 and 80mm fan. it is light but not too light. it is not an ANTEC but at this price it is a great deal. all the things fit and it was quite easy to work with. it also looks quite nice

Cons: it is light,

Other Thoughts: I got this case for an APU build and it works great with a 5400k APU, installed a 500W ATX PSU 1 DVD, I hdd and 8gb 1600 ram. it keeps the parts cool. it is light but not so light that the panels bend like other cheap cases. it come with thumb screws and the fans are not too loud and push enough air for a light build. for a gamer you might want to install some fans with more CFM ability however this case seems to more the air just fine and hold the parts in place like a case is suppose to. there was plenty of room to work in and I did not have any problems with cable management for my little build

5 out of 5 eggsRosewill FBM-02 Dual Fans MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case

Pros: great little case for the money, nothing to special comes with two fans an 80 and 120 . Nice design and not to bad on the eyes. the power button is very large and has a nice feel to it, nothing cheap what so ever, same with the reset button ant it is somewhat set inside the case. Havn't tried the headphone/mic jacks yet but im sure they're like any other case in this price range but i hear no hiss from them interfering with anything. USB ports arent 100% straight in the holes but im not to picky again for this price point. Great paint, a satin look on the case and the front has a nice brushed look with chrome. one thing i thought before getting the case is that i thought the black on the front would be a little duller and not so glossy but its not overly glossy like some of the other options out there. Power Light is Very bright and may be a pro for some, the HDD LED light is almost as bright but not as loud. Thumb screws in the back make for a great ease of access and the inside of the case has no sharp edges and has nice rolled edges. the fans are quiet enough that i dont hear even the 80mm one. the inside isnt painted but its not to be expected the pictures of the product more than show it isnt. has a spot on the bottom of the case to mount a 2.5 hdd whether it be a 2.5 ssd or a 2.5 mechanical, just grab some rubber washers before you install to keep the vibration down if you have a problem with that sort of thing. it has a spot for a 5.25'' bay as well as a option for a 3.5 . overall its a 5/5 egg product for me. The case came with plenty of screws motherboard standoffs and a speaker for the motherboard. HD Front audio wires are long enough to reach around the back side of my particular board and still not be in the way, same with the front USB. i had no issues with any of the threads with the motherboard standoff mounts or any other threads so thats also a plus.

Cons: While i dont have any real cons for this computer case, i knew fair well what i was buying before hand and had no expectations of it being anything else. 1. the Power LED is SO bright. like you could carry this thing in your arms at night for a flash light its so bright and almost hurts to look at, no matter as i took a white out pen and dobbed it until it filled the hole and bobs your mothers uncle no more light problems. The HDD LED is almost as bad but being that it doesnt flash 100% of the time i have no reason to fill that one in. Again with the front of the case i wasnt expecting such a glossy finish but it isnt a piano finish just glossier than i had thought from the pictures perspective. some may have issues on where to put the cables from the PSU you're going to have to install in it, but i found it easiest to just put them in the 5.25 bay just below the optical drive and presto no worries. Would have liked to see a side panel with no mesh on it no reason really to have it there other than to maybe look in to the case? im unsure again not worried about it just a thought. The last thing i could say would be the inability to replace the expansion slot covers once youve broken them off. afterall this is a breakaway style case, not a replace. overall there really isnt to much to be said bad with this case considering the price and the shipping which are both outstanding.

Other Thoughts: I knew going into this build what i was getting into as i have built pcs with this particular line from rosewill before although not this specific model, still the same line size and specs. This case offers people the option of making a few different style builds if you have a budget or constraints on space a combination of the two or something you just want to buy for old tech lying a round. My option was the latter which i had an old 1156 board about with some memory and a 2.5 5400 rpm drive. decided to buy a CPU off an online auction site which btw was a i3 550 1156 socket for under thirty bucks. decided to go on to newegg and check for some cheap cases and found this one, however rosewill had it on said auction website for about a dollar less and free shipping. sorry newegg, youve gotten thousands from me but in the end rosewill is your house brand and you ended up with my cash any how so it all works out. This is just a no frills case that will get the job done with some very quite fans . although they may not move 110 cfm they still move a considerable amount of air and keep the db down. case has a very small user friendly foot print with astetics in mind. its very easy to look at and you have options to install add-on cards if you so desire. for those who are wondering a gtx 470 will fit just fine in this case with no problems at all. the finish is amazing, the brushed aluminum look is nice, the buttons are firm and not to hard to press yet not to flimsy to think youll break them and has no grounding issues what so ever. i have an earthwatts Antec PSU non modular and it fits just fine for what im using this for, which is an HTPC. id definately recommend this case to others looking to build anything from an office pc to entry level gaming micro atx build. its worth the money hands down i have zero regrets. Thanks Rosewill, Thanks Newegg, and Thank you for the excellent products you continue to deliver at a fraction of the prices from the other brands.
