4 out of 5 eggsGood but should be a bit longer

Pros: Big case, fits everything well, is easy to carry. Things that need to be taken out (brackets in the back, sections in the front for hard drives and cd drives) can be taken out fairly easily, just twist a bit and you should get the metal parts out.

It fits the motherboard pretty good to be honest, and everything is rather easy to set up.

Cons: One problem that I ran into with this case is that it actually had a hard time fitting my Gigabyte R7 260X graphics card, not sure if I just wasn't putting it in right or what. I got it to fit after, just had to try a bit harder than I was trying. If you have a smaller graphics card this shouldn't be a problem, as my graphics card was just huge due to the fans and the length and such.

Other Thoughts: Great looking case, there are actually some LEDs that I didn't know about so that's pretty sweet. Case also fits everything well as I said before, so I would recommend getting this case !

1 out of 5 eggsAvoid like the plague.

Pros: It came with lots of screws and some standoffs, which was nice.

Cons: Either this suffers from blatantly poor design and manufacturing, or I hit the defective product jackpot.

- (Possibly) Cheap metal results in the case vibrating and making a lot of noise from the hard drive. I haven't seen this issue in any other case.

- Loose/cheaply made plastic feet results in more vibration

- I had no luck getting either front LED to work

- Front audio/USB works, but if you connect front audio AND front USB, you hear buzzing inside the front audio output and input.

Other Thoughts: Newegg, LET PEOPLE EDIT THEIR REVIEWS.

2 out of 5 eggsAn update to the review on 5/15/2014

Pros: Listed in my other review:

Somewhat reliably built, doesn't scratch easily
Front/back fan vents
Back fan vents made to fit multiple fan sizes
Includes standoffs and LOTS of screws

Cons: The case is apparently built with the assumption that you're going to have a 5.25" disk drive installed to tighten up the upper area where the 5.25" bays are. I don't, and in my case with a 3.5" HDD, the case rattles LOUDLY. Try at your own risk if you plan to have a 5.25" drive you plan to install, otherwise I wouldn't recommend this unless you use a SSD.

Other Thoughts: I made the dumb mistake of reviewing the case before having a chance to turn my computer on. Never doing that again.

4 out of 5 eggsCorrection

Pros: To correct my review below, there are power connections for HDD and PWR LED. You have to take off the front cover and they're inside the cover. Should be in the same place as the rest of the wiring, but they are there.

Cons: Why doesn't Newegg allow you to edit or update reviews?

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It's cheap and has a lot of bays. Installed 120 mm and 80 mm fans easily on front and rear.

Cons: Really flimsy sheet metal case. Case only has connectors for Power and Reset. No HDD LED or PWR LED. USB 2.0 connections only, but that's expected for this price. My biggest pet peeve was the slots for the PCI cards. I installed the motherboard and everything else before adding the card. The slots are just sheet metal with two connection points on the bottom of the piece. To remove the metal you have to wiggle it back and forth until it pops off. If you have anything sticking up on your motherboard near the case slot, you can't remove the metal without taking the motherboard back out. I was able to get one slot to work, but if I need any more in the future, the motherboard will have to come out to be able to wiggle out the slot cover. They should have spent the extra dollar and just made the slot cover with a screw and removable like normal. It does come with two PCI covers that you can put back in if you remove the card at a later date.

Other Thoughts: If it cost more I would say only 3 eggs for the purchase, but at this price it's not bad and worth an egg. If you have any PCI cards to install REMOVE the appropriate PCI slot cover prior to installing the motherboard. It will make your life much easier.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

Pros: Mid Size case, plenty of room for a lot of HDD's, has a spot for a fan in the front bottom, and one fan spot in the rear. Easy cables to hook up to the mobo, nice LED lights on the front. It fits a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO cooler, it BARELY fit, but it does.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: AMD FX6300, 8GB GSkill Ripjaws X Series 1600 RAM, ASUS M5A78L-M/USB3, PNY GTX 560 Ti 1GB, 120GB Kingston Hyper X SSD, APEX PC-389-C Case, Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO

5 out of 5 eggsGood Case

Pros: Sturdy, Well built, cheap.

Cons: Minor details for my use. . no real cable management, smaller interior.

Other Thoughts: I was building a budget PC for a friend and was pleasantly surprised with the build quality of this case for the price. It has enough space for an enthusiast or workstation build. . probably would not use it for a gaming PC.

5 out of 5 eggsBest in Price Range

Pros: This case offers more than most modern mid-towers in this price range. There are two 3.5" external drive bays instead of the usual one, three 5.25" drive bays, and seven rear PCI slots. While it doesn't come with any fans, its rear fan housing fits almost any size from 80mm to 120mm (some low-end cases only provide an 80mm housing size). The exterior is really good-looking, especially when the computer is running and activates the power and HDD indicators in the form of two opposing "snakes" that run half the length of the front bezel.

Cons: Would be even better if it came with an exhaust fan, but I'm not lowering my rating for that.
