5 out of 5 eggsstill running

Pros: bought in may of 2010 and has been powered on since. very surprised with the power supply. been used for a htpc. looking for a new case for a new build and thought I'd leave a review

Cons: it does rattle occasionally during strenuous tasks. (might be my fault, as it was my first build)

1 out of 5 eggsCheaply made

Pros: Nice looking case with power supply.

Cons: Bad front panel design, first case came all busted up, second case came with 1 screw busted on the front panel, word to the wise you have to take off the front panel in order to put your optical drives in, the front panel is VERY delicate the push pins have screws in the middle of them to "spread" them out holding the panel on. Plain old screws holding it with no added fancy cheap plastic would have sufficed just fine as it has for years!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for a basic build

Pros: My sister bought this case 5 years ago. with the same 300watt PSU. It's still in great condition and still has the orginial PSU and it's still going strong. The case is nice looking kinda looks like an H.P. style. easy to work inside. now it's a lower price case so if your building a gaming rig you might want a bigger case and higher wattage.

Cons: It's not a gaming build case.

Other Thoughts: For an everyday system this is great and won't empty your wallet.

4 out of 5 eggsgood size and quality

Pros: case arrived, styrofoam packaging was broken. but the case had no scratches or dings. excellent! nice quiet stock fans too.

Cons: i don't like the way the drives sit once installed. It feels loose and rattles when moved. Good thing it sits still under a desk in my client's office!

Other Thoughts: just go with the standard mounts. Why mess with it where you need to take the front plastic off to slide drives in.

5 out of 5 eggsStill Running after 5 years

Pros: I own the case for 5 years, and it is still running……. Beside the OS is out of date and system slow down, the case and its power supply are still doing the job. It is a very solid chassis with good metal thickness compare to nowadays flimsy cases. Classic ID design keep the case look nice all time. Pretty roomy interior as a microATX case- very easy to work with when I build the system 5 years ago

Cons: Not find yet- after 5 years…

Other Thoughts: I am debating if I should just buy another this TM-302, or saving the money by just remove all the old components from 5 years ago system

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Cheap.

Cons: I really don't like the screwless drive bays in this case. They leave the external drives so they aren't perfectly flush with the front of the case and all of the external drives are free to wiggle which leaves a very "cheap" feeling. They'd be better off letting us use standard drive bay screws.

As mentioned, the other side of the case doesn't open up so it's basically impossible to properly secure the optical & external 3.5" drives.

Only 1 HD drive bay. That's OK for now but I might not like it if I want to expand a little next year (add an SSD, etc).

I buy cheap cases all the time and don't ever have these kinds of problems. IMO this is just a bad case.

4 out of 5 eggsGood basic case for the money

Pros: -Inexpensive (didn't want to say "cheap", as it's fairly well built)

-Includes power supply

-Includes 1x80mm rear fan

-Much sturdier than other cases I've used in this price range

-Includes fan shroud for the CPU fan

-Very quiet, nearly silent, only thing I can hear is the hard drive I installed in it

Cons: -Only 1x3.5" bay

-Front panel difficult to remove without fear of damaging it and it *has* to be removed to mount 5.25" drives

-Internal "rails" for mounting a 5.25" drive (e.g. DVD burner) are weird and left my DVD drive a bit loose

Other Thoughts: Wish it used a 120mm rear exhaust fan instead of 80mm

Wish it could mount a front intake fan (preferably 120mm)

The front is ugly. Plain black wouldn't look as cheap as the silver does. That being said, due to the price, I feel like I bought a power supply and got a free case. :-)

Used this to throw together a new office pc for my dad:
Core i3-2120 3.3GHz
ASUS P8H61-M LE/CSM
4 GB DDR3 and a 750 GB SATA hard drive I had laying around

All things considered, I would definitely purchase again for a cheap build. Almost want to buy another just to have a spare handy.

4 out of 5 eggsVery nice case.

Pros: Sturdy on the outside, and not bad looking either. Fairly low weight thanks to its small stature.

Cons: Little bit flimsy on the inside for the hard drive bay. Also, I couldn't get the plastic auto lock for the DVD drive bay to work properly, so I had to use a washer and some screws to hold that in place.

Other Thoughts: I may be using the plastic drive bay lock wrong, but it doesn't seem to even try to grip the DVD drive.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Better than expected metal thickness
Easy to assemble design

Cons: Cheap plastic front panel

Other Thoughts: I like the case overall but a few minor things keep it from being perfect.
1. Two of the 6 pegs holding the front panel on were broken right out of the box.
2. Poorly packaged. The Styrofoam was broken and falling apart when I took the case out. I'm sure this is probably why the two pegs were broken.

Despite the broken pegs I expect to get many years out of this case. Hopefully the included power supply lasts as long.
