5 out of 5 eggsExcellent case, bigger than you'd think for miniITX

Pros: -Attractively built:
I bought this in large part because of its appearance. I was building a miniITX Hackintosh and wanted a "mini Mac Pro" look. Like the (older) Mac Pro case, this has a solid, sturdy, single-chunk-of-brushed-aluminum sort of appearance. The insides are solid gloss black, which looks great and helped make the build look better with its orange & black interior color scheme.

Lots of room:
The bottom space houses only the PSU (which is a full-size ATX) and cables, meaning that you could easily use a non-modular PSU (though I wouldn't recommend it) without major trouble. There's room for several hard drives and a pretty sizable graphics card (12.5in/320mm) if you want one, and the left panel has the necessary ventilation. AND if you want to, you can remove the HDD cage completely (2.5-inch drives can be installed on the floor) and have even more space. There's room for a giant radiator on the top panel.

Ease of access:
The top, front, and side panels all pop off and back on quickly, making this case the easiest to access that I've ever encountered or even seen. What's especially notable is that the fitment is so nice and firm--there is no looseness to the panels, so they don't shake or wiggle or make any noise.

Good cable management options:
The grommets and routing holes are in the right places to make cable management easy.

Cons: For a miniITX case, this is pretty large:
The spaciousness is a possible con, depending on your needs. In overall volume, this case is only slightly smaller than a mid-tower case because it's so wide and because it's taller than the average miniITX case. Check the specs before you buy.

Most filters are not removable:
While there is a removable filter underneath the PSU, the side, top, and front filters are not removable, making cleaning more of a chore than it could be.

Side panel issues:
The panel is built into the cage, and this is great because it eliminates the problem of cables attached to the side panel. However, this caused 2 problems.
1) The USB 3.0 ports and reset and power buttons didn't line up perfectly with the holes on the side panel. I used a file to grind down the aluminum a little so that USB devices would fit into the ports without obstruction and the buttons looked centered in their holes.
2) The light from the power and hard drive LEDs leaks into each other and into the USB slots. This oversight by the manufacturer is the only thing that makes the case seem cheap. I resolved this--cheaply--by hot-gluing small pieces of black plastic onto the circuit board around the LEDs. (You could probably also accomplish this with a small amount of black rubber hose of the right diameter.)

Other Thoughts: My build:
case: Rosewill Legacy WS-1 (Since it's a Hackintosh, I carved an Apple logo into the right panel with the non-business end of an Xacto blade. To match the color scheme, I replaced the front fan with a 140mm orange & black Cougar fan.)
motherboard: Gigabyte B85N Phoenix WiFi
CPU: Intel Core i7 4790S
CPU cooler: Corsair H50 (replaced fan with orange & black Cougar fan)
RAM: Kingston HyperX Fury 1600MHz 16GB (2x8GB)
PSU: Rosewill ARC-M550 550w modular power supply
boot drive: Mushkin Enhanced 240GB mSATA SSD
storage drive: WD Black Edition 4TB HDD
ODD: Macbook unibody Superdrive

5 out of 5 eggsShiny steel case

Pros: Snap off top, front, sides for easy access. Normal 650W PSU in bottom. Micro ATX with AMD A10-7800 CPU and 8GB RAM. Fast build, easy case to work in. Very low cost build.

Cons: 140 mm fans were inoperative. Unable to find an ODD the fits in 1/2 size front load slot. I used regular DVD to load Win X for testing.

Other Thoughts: Using as living room controller as test machine.
