5 out of 5 eggsGreat looking case for the price.

Pros: Lightweight. I don't know of a more aesthetically pleasing micro ATX mini-tower for the current price. It has a nice glossy finish, albeit plastic, and brushed aluminum look. Also plastic. No complaint.

Cons: The side panels are flimsy. You also have to be very gentle with the chrome (plastic) strip, near the bottom of the front panel. It can be easily scratched.

I have one ribbon-sized wire through the side for cable management, and even something as thin as that, is applying pressure to the side panel once it's attached.

I chose to remove the connection from my motherboard to the power LED. It's way too bright, especially at night. See my 'Other thoughts', regarding lighting.

Other Thoughts: This case is similar to the FBM-01, which has an extra 5.25" eternal bay. I would've liked an extra bay to add a fan controller to the FBM-02.

I installed a 2-port USB 3.0 controller in the 3.5" bay, and a recent model LG optical drive, that is a mix of the gloss and brushed look of the case. I attached a magnetic dust filter to the side panel, and I changed the fans.

I added a white LED 120 mm fan to the front, for intake, and a subtle glow at the side and bottom, and I added a non-LED 92 mm fan at the back, for exhaust.

This case resembles a bookshelf stereo (SA-PM500) that I bought back in February. That has a USB input, so I'll use this FBM-02 system as a jukebox too.

1 out of 5 eggsWorst Case Ever Bought

Pros: Looks nice. Light weight.

Cons: This is the worst case I have ever bought.
1. No way to get my CUP cooler (stock cooler from AMD) and a hard drive to work together. After putting both in the case, there is no space to hook up the power connector to the hard drive. I cannot use a single 3.5" hard drive in this case. Whoever designed it must be really stupid!!!
2. Hard drive is right on the top of the RAM sticks. You cannot remove the RAMs without having to remove the CPU cooler and the hard drives first.

Other Thoughts: If you need to use 3.5" internal hard drives in this case, DON'T buy it. You will regret it if you do.

4 out of 5 eggsSmall Tower Case

Pros: Sturdy Build

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I love this case because it looks good and sells it at a fair price. The fans adequately cool the internal components. If you don't want to buy a cheap and flimsy case or spend a fortune on one of those high gloss cases, then I would recommend giving this one a chance.

I use this case to house my home server; a DG43GT board, an E5200 CPU, 6 GB DDR2 (4 sticks total), a 1TB WD Blue and 2 TB WD Green. The server is on 24/7, and often performing backups or media streaming. It never gets too hot due to inadequate ventilation. The case looks really professional as well.

4 out of 5 eggsCheap,looks Good

Pros: Very cheap with the discount, Solid case for the price, 2 quiet fans

Cons: Unfortunately for me, one of the fan was defective. I was able to repair it by applying some glue one of the wire the was separated from the ground if that makes sense.

Other Thoughts: Ill be ordering another one for another project, hopefully I wont have to repair one of the fan.

5 out of 5 eggsIt's a $30 case so keep that in mind

Pros: It's super cheap (obviously) the 2 included fans are super quiet and move more air than I expected for it being as cheap as it is, side mesh is great for intaking more air if your cpu and gpu need it.

Cons: pcie slots cant be re-covered once it's removed. the area behind the motherboard tray is a joke as far as cable management goes (I actually wan't expecting any space at all so I guess it could be a pro?)

Other Thoughts: Carefully plan the order you put your components in unless if you're a toddler handed contortionist. I'd suggest putting the power supply in last.
Tried to save 3 bucks on shipping via another retailer... package arrived over a week later than the parts I ordered Newegg, never again.

4 out of 5 eggsLove the size, but those cut corners...

Pros: Love the size, front design is nice, cools well. Bought 2 in case one was damaged in shipping or assembly. Price on sale was fantastic. It doesn't even have as many sharp edges as I thought it would. It could be such an amazing case... but.....

Cons: There is no excuse for that top panel. Paper thin. Same with the panel where the motherboard mounts. Its like Jello. And isn't USB 3.0 standard on everything now?

Other Thoughts: I bought a sheet of adhesive foam board, cut a slab and mounted it underneath the top panel. Excellent noise reduction, and I'm not denting the top panel with my thumb anymore.

This fix cost the money that I saved when I got this case on sale. I shouldn't have to do that.

Rosewill, thicker metal. It really isn't asking too much. The metal used in this case hurts me. It hurts me bad :(

Bottom line: This case is a great idea that has been poorly executed in a few areas.

5 out of 5 eggsGood case

Pros: Connector cables plenty long enough to reach
Comes with 2 fans, which are nice and quiet
Love the positioning of the ports and power button

Cons: Is it flimsy? Sure, but that's how all cheap cases are made. It's solid enough that I carried it around by 1 hand (with the side off) under the top. Didn't bend or bow, not sure what these other folks are talking about. It's a normal case.

Other Thoughts: Built it with minimal parts, but everything worked out great.
Hard drive had plenty of room to come in and out without hitting anything on the mobo.

2 out of 5 eggsDefective power switch

Pros: Inexpensive. Quiet fans. Holds the computer together. Looks great.

Cons: The case is a bit flimsy but that's to be expected from a $25 case. My biggest issue is that it came with a defective power switch.

I plugged the reset switch into the power switch terminals instead and it works fine now, except I have to press the reset switch to turn it on instead of the power.

5 out of 5 eggsDid not expect it to be that good

Pros: Got it pretty cheap and despite the good reviews really expected a cheap case, but whatever, was on a budget. It's actually quite decent! It doesn't look as plasticy as it looks in the pictures. The panel screws are even thumb screws!

Cons: Lack of USB3 ports on the front
