5 out of 5 eggsGreat budget case

Pros: -Very solid build feel
-Easy sliding-lock media drive bays
-Power supply works for low power applications

Cons: -Only two hard drive slots
-Only two SATA power connectors on power supply

Other Thoughts: Great case for the average 1 hard drive, 1 media drive build and includes a very solid power supply. Really can't ask for more at this price point. Very clear target user and lives up to expectations.

I used there other case with 4 hard drive slots and they are virtually the same so there are options to, but the media bay drives are not sliding-lock ones.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Budget Case & PS

Pros: Great price, good basic features, good quality.

Cons: Useless front headphone jack.

Other Thoughts: This is a nice, good-looking and compact case for a budget sub -$250 build. You do not have to remove the front panel to install the DVD, and the lock mechanism is secure if quite simple and ingenious. Removing the front panel is simple, by pulling gently on the bottom. It is required to install a front fan. Fit and finish is good. I don't see how you can find a better value for a case and power supply. My only complaint is the unusable front panel headphone jack - extremely low quality - though the USB seems to work fine.

4 out of 5 eggsCase came in quick

Pros: * Quick shipping, but that all depends on where its coming from
* Looks neat
* FREE POWER SUPPLY! W00T!
*PSU comes with
# 2 Sata (not 1 like other reviews say)
# 2 4-PIN
# 1 Floopy
# 4 PIN board connector
# 24 Pin board connector

Cons: * putting a fan in the front is a pain! So much so I docked one egg.

Other Thoughts: It really gets under my skin when I see people on here giving the case 1-2 egg rating because of miniscule things (like me not being able to mount the fan properly). In reality, you are getting this case for free if you think about it. PSU's cost at least $30, and this case comes with one. Make the connection yet? Either you are getting a free PSU or a free case, take your pick.

In either situation, you get what you pay for, and this is a great deal. Yeah, its not the best, but if I was expecting the best I would have purchased the best.

For what it is, its a great case.

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.
