5 out of 5 eggsIncredible value

Pros: Value, value, value--that's why 5 eggs.
Power supply.
Looks pleasant.

Cons: Fit and finish--meh.
The optical drive bay is intended for slim drive. Full size LG drive was in the combo package. Full size was a little fiddly to install (to avoid interference from the trap door.) I use software eject commands to avoid fishing for the fancy LG eject 'bump'.(I had to edit b/c Newegg won't allow the term that describes the 'bump' on a camel's back...) (I don't feel like just snapping the trap door off.)

Other Thoughts: To avoid burning Franklins: It's well worth a little (really not that much) extra work on the optical drive. I am very pleased with this purchase.

4 out of 5 eggsNice case with a few quirks.

Pros: nice looking case fits mITX and mATX mobos.

Cons: PSU only has one SATA connector. You will need to buy a 4 pin molex to sata adaptor if you want to mount a ODD and a HDD.

3 out of 5 eggsA cheap small case with serious deficits

Pros: It's small. I wanted something small similar to the Optiplex cases and that is what I got.
Supports a full size optical drive, a full size 3.5 HDD, and a 2.5 SSD (or HDD) all at once, space wise. SSD and ODD are attached to the part that comes out. HDD is installed under that part, sort of hanging behind the pack panel.
Included PSU that should be more than enough for a build going into this kind of case
The slight bend outwards in the side panels make cable management possible and not a huge pain.

Cons: The case arrived looking like it had been used before. There was dust inside of the plastic bag, visual scratches, and generally not taken care of well. Since it's hidden, I didn't mind, but that's never a good indicator.

While the case has the room to install odd, hdd, and ssd, the PSU only has one SATA power connector, so you either need to split that or get a molex adapter. It also does not come with enough screws to mount them all if you intend to use all four like I do.
No included fans, except for on the power supply. The case needs at the very least an 80mm intake at the bottom. I would recommend to use some pantyhose as a dust filter.
The case has to stand upright. I thought the ODD cover would be oriented the other way to what it is. If you lay it down either your front panel ports or your optical drive become useless. You have to remove the ODD cover and install the reverse to not lose functionality of either. Sadly instead of putting feet on the case itself, they give you these stands "in case" you decide to stand it upright (pro tip, you have no choice, the stands increase the width, not great. You don't use those and then the intake suffers as the case would sit on it.
A few days of use and the ODD cover already stops pulling in properly after the drive. Getting the optical positioned to work with that cover was enough of a pain.
The cables for the front panel can only route through one hole, however the hole does not line up with the cables very well, so when you reattach the front panel of the case, you can jam the cable and ruin it if you aren't careful.
HDD activity light is red and same place as power button. Doesn't look good, so I disconnected it and moved the power led over a bit, to get a more uniform shine.
No filters, so I used pantyhose on the open coverings with some superglue. Works well and doesn't restrict airflow much at all.
The power cable going from the PSU to the back for the power plug, it's a little too long, it would've been nice if it had been more taut for better cable management. The plug on the back is also a bigger cut out than the power cable, thus it's not a snug fit.
PSU is sort of crooked and so is the fan. Screws for side panels are also crooked.
Card readers are very difficult to use as the readers don't line up properly with the case and they aren't flush. You'll need to either cut the front panel up a bit or attempt to realign them on the inside of the front cover.
If you can, replace the PSU for something more reliable, but that does increase the cost a lot.

Other Thoughts: I am somewhat satisfied with what I got for the money, but it could be a whole lot better, quite easily.
The case could be even smaller by only sacrificing the matx support. They should anyway, since matx is impossible to fit well. It could then lose some height and if they dropped expansion card support, even some width, maybe some length too, but that's a close one.

2 out of 5 eggsNot lucky

Pros: Good price for a nice looking case. Delivers what it says.

Cons: I got 2 of those. One came bent and the other with DOA on the power supply. Too expensive for using just the case.

3 out of 5 eggsNo hard drive bay?

Pros: Nice size, lightweight, USB 3.0

Cons: Case arrived with bent area. NO hard drive bay included. No where to attach hard drive.

3 out of 5 eggsNot meant to lay flat

Pros: -I can put 2 full sized hard drives in it
-It has a full-sized 5.25" drive bay (which has a 3.5" hard drive in it currently, no adapter needed).
-Can fit up to 5 80mm fans.
-can fit a small microATX motherboard

Cons: -not meant to lay flat. The case is meant to stand vertically - if you lay it flat, either the optical drive will be upside down or the card reader/front USB will be face down. for this reason and because it is almost 16" deep I don't think it would make a very good HTPC if you are planning on putting it on a shelf.
-Power button is too big and can be accidentally pressed quite easily.
-hard drive bay (theone that's not inside the 5.25 bay) is very awkward to work on.
-Power supply fan is loud - had to take power supply apart and clip wires to remove it. Replaced it with another one and hooked that one up to a motherboard fan connector.

Other Thoughts: It has a lot of hard-to-find features but also a couple of glaring design flaws.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Good, But Read Carefully

Pros: - Inexpensive

- Compact (TRUE mini-ITX case)

- Stylish (painted inside and out, door covering optical drive bay is attractive and smooth-operating)

- Card Readers & USB 3.0

- 350-Watt PSU Included

- Intelligent design; easy to route/hide cables.

Cons: - Listing is not 100% Correct

- Cheap Construction (thin, flimsy metal)

- PSU has limited usefulness with only 1 SATA connector

- Only enough space for 1 HDD or 1 SSD and 1 optical drive; not enough space for all 3. In other words, you can install 2 HDDs or 2 SSDs; or 1 HDD and an optical drive or 1 SSD and an optical drive.

- External Drive Bay is FULL SIZE, NOT SLIM.

Other Thoughts: I ordered 2 of these cases to build office computers with. They are fantastic - but they had a few problems.

First, one of the cases I ordered was NOT new. It had been opened, and the included items were not sealed in their original packaging. Everything was there, so it wasn't a big deal, but I should have been given a discount for that.

More than one of the screws used to mount the hard drive had been stripped at the factory, so I had to re-tap the holes.

The listing is very confusing where it concerns the mounting of peripherals. The 5.25" External Bay is a FULL size drive bay, not a Slim. See 'Cons' for clarification.

Case can only properly be mounted one way - standing up like in the pictures so the PSU can vent upwards. You can lay it flat with the card reader facing up, and that might be fine, but it will not get proper airflow.

Great case for the money - definitely order it. I could not find any other true Mini-ITX case that had all these features at this price. But read carefully and look closely.

In the end, my client was extremely satisfied with the office computers I used this case to build (they look more expensive then they are, which is a boon for system builders,) so I am happy. I almost dropped one egg from the rating because of the curve-balls I had to deal with, but the shortcomings are appropriate for the price I paid. I will consider buying from Logisys in the future.

4 out of 5 eggsGood case

Pros: Cheap sturdy build mini ATX case with 350W PSU, USB 3.0, and SD card reader

Cons: Little more noisy then I would like

Other Thoughts: 1. It's not "mini ITX" case as Newegg says on the price tag, this case is "mini ATX / ITX case".
2. And of cause, there is no aluminum at all.
3. I would suggest it to most system admins who need cheap mini-ATX case with the PSU

1 out of 5 eggsDefective and wrong information

Pros: Thin design

Cons: The PSU was defective out of the box. Also be warned the PSU comes with only 1 sata power cable. The description says it is made of aluminum but the box clearly says it is steel.
