1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It looks cool.

Cons: It is NOT made for ATX at all, there are not enough screw slots for all the standoffs for a full size ATX board. Even worse, there is no back opening where the CPU should be, there is an opening on the bottom by the PCI slots for some reason. This should not be advertized as ATX, im not sure what its for at all if you cant access the back of the board for CPU fans.

Other Thoughts: Dont Buy

2 out of 5 eggsIts ok.

Pros: The price of it is really the only plus that I have encountered.

Cons: *My Front bezel is duct taped thanks to shipping damages.
*Steel is not rolled, cut myself all of the time in it
*Poorly laid out, can only fit 2 HDD's with a dual slot GPU

2 out of 5 eggsOk, not pretty, not ugly, starting to showing age

Pros: Cheap case, 4 usb front, simple enough to set up. Comes with all the basic stuff you need, as long as you know where everything should go.

Cons: No cable management, no 3.0 usb, top PSU, screws strip paint on panels upon removal.

Fan attachments are minimalist, can make the case very noisy.

Other Thoughts: Used in my first "build" which was a salvaged form factor to make room for a better PSU and GPU.

I got this case about a year ago and it works fine. There isn't anything special about it at all, it is just an ok box to stuff your computer in. Nothing on it has failed, fallen off, or broken, but I keep it under my workdesk in my house, not a shop or at work. So your mileage may vary.

With other cheap cases now commonly supporting 3.0 usb, unless you really love the layout or the 4 usb at the front, I would suggest getting another case so you can fully utilize your motherboard.

For an old system or using an old board that does not use 3.0 USB I think this case is a solid choice.

4 out of 5 eggsNice case

Pros: The case is very nice and came with plenty of screws and wires.

Cons: The case I received was unfortunately dented very bad to the point I couldn't put my PSU in it.

Other Thoughts: Other than that it's a really nice case

4 out of 5 eggsUpdated Review

Pros: Inexpensive, looks nice, plenty of room inside. Good ventilation. Satin black finish with a nice plain jane front panel. Nothing fancy here, it holds the components as advertised.

Cons: Side panels are a bit thin but are okay once the box is closed.

Update: Front panel USB board is not held in very well and has the tendency to slip back from the bezel. Easy to solve with a drop of super glue on the hold down slots. The USB ports have weak interiors and the inner tab will break easily, so be nice to the ports and dont put a lot of pressure up or down on them or you'll break the inner tab.

Other Thoughts: I removed an egg because of the weakness of the front USB board in both the mounting and the internal tabs. Othwise for the money it is a good value just treat it nice.

1 out of 5 eggsNot made for ATX

Pros: It's cheap. Like so cheap I'm not even going to bother to RMA it.

Cons: 1. Although it states it supports ATX boards there is only enough backing to really hold a Micro ATX down firmly. This case only has two columns worth of backing leaving the right side of the board dangling, which feels horrible when you are supporting it by hand as you try to connect things.
2. I don't even know where it is pretending an optional 120mm fan is going to fit on the side. Was this an error?

Other Thoughts: If you are planning on using an ATX board keep looking.

2 out of 5 eggsAvoid it unless you have what you need

Pros: It's an absolutely no frills computer case

Cons: - No fans.
- Light-weight and flimsy.
- CAN NOT MOUNT FANS LARGER THAN 80 MM!!! (Yes, I know the specifications say it can, but it can't without drilling new holes.)

Other Thoughts: Look, this is a cheap tin box. It's too cheap to return, so I'll eat the cost, but the fans I ordered won't fit, the description doesn't say it can't take 120 fans and it's got nothing else at all to recommend it. If you want to build a QUIET computer, look elsewhere. This won't cut it. Your fans will be too small and have to run too fast to be quiet.

I'll order a new case with at least the capacity to mount fans but I'm getting really tired of buying cases that are utter junk - this is two in a row. I know this is cheap, but they said it would mount a 120 MM fan on the side (at least) and it won't. Not even close.

So it goes in the trash and I order another one and I'm angry as hell about it.

4 out of 5 eggsNice, cheap case

Pros: Lightweight
Simple Design
Cheap
Nice, squishy power button (very satisfying to press :D )

Cons: Flimsy
No cutout behind cpu
No space behind motherboard for cable routing, not even sure what right panel is for other than screwing in drives

4 out of 5 eggsGets the job done

Pros: * Light-weight
* Clean appearance
* Smaller than your average mid-tower
* 4 USB ports on the front, and they're stiff too

Cons: * Not good if you intend to replace parts often - you'll probably end up stripping the screw holes if you do
* Flimsy metal. I've seen worse but it doesn't take much to warp the frame.
* Though the USB ports themselves are stiff, the mounting of them is pretty loose
* Aside from this only shipping with 6 mounting brackets, there isn't much room for a full-sized ATX board (with 9 mounting points) and several drives.
* If you have a 3rd party CPU heatsink, you'll have to take the motherboard out to mount it.
* The side panel that shipped with my case doesn't match the one in the images.

Other Thoughts: I bought this tower because it was on sale and the motherboard I was going to put in it only required 6 mounting brackets. That being said, I have sufficient space to add as many drives as I want. I knew the dimensions of this board were fairly limiting to any serious PCs, but this computer involves cheap parts I put together for a Hackintosh, so it works for me.

For what I need it for, this case does the job just fine. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a cheap PC that involves a motherboard with 6 mounting brackets. Otherwise, at its full price, this case isn't very good and will not suffice for any PC that involves many drives or large expansion cards.

If you luck out and get the side panel shown in the images, this case can offer some decent cooling.

4 out of 5 eggsWhat you need to know

Pros: Came quick, no dents or missing parts, under $25.

Cons: Here's what you REALLY need to know. There are NO fans in this case to start. Order up a few when you order this. It's been awhile since I've bought a case that didn't already have at least two fans in it and I had to scrounge a pair when making the swap to this case to reclaim a desktop..so get the fans, you'll need them.

Secondly, even with a miniATX board, you'll be hanging a row of mount holes unsupported. The support bump (apparently using an "H" triggers a Newegg filter..lol) doesn't go all the way, even for the smaller MBs. Plan on it

Other Thoughts: Both sides come off this case so why they point the hard drive cages back into the motherboard is beyond me when you can flip them and access from both sides like better made cases. Why anyone is still orienting hard drive cages that way is beyond me. It's stupid, lazy design.

But it's still a $25 case, looks like office cases and functions fine beyond the caveats mentioned above.
