3 out of 5 eggsFront USB 3.0 ports don't work

Pros: It's a nice looking case, sturdy (metal panels), with side window, quiet fan and plenty of ventilation. Not bad price.

Cons: The front USB 3.0 never worked. At the beginning I thought it was a MOBO issue, but the 3.0 ports in the back work flawlessly. I read another buyer had the same problem, and as him/her I decided to cope with the problem because of the pain in the neck that returning would be.
Also, the front panels that cover the 5-1/4" bays are a pain to work with, if you're not very careful the fall inside. The "quick fix" anchors are not very good and you still need to use the little screws to avoid vibrations on rotating drives. They work fine with SSD and card reader panels.

Other Thoughts: I give it 3 eggs because of the front USB 3.0 ports not working. That was a real bummer. The other downs are quite minor and very livable with.

4 out of 5 eggsGood buy

Pros: Good Case. Has power and reset buttons on the top of the case in the front, along with USB and audio ports which is convenient. Has 3 120mm fan slots that are empty. Blue lights aren't terribly bright but that's not a huge problem.

Cons: none

2 out of 5 eggs_-*-*-_READ B4 You buy!!!

Pros: Cheap comes with a 1300 rpm fan light weight

Cons: The metal is very thin, plus the one of screws that came with the case snapped when I was mounting a 2.5 HD (Mounts to the bottom of the case only 2.5 slot available) paint rubs off thumb screws ruins the look

Other Thoughts: Purchased the case for my first build and because it looked cool that being said spend a little more and buy the Azza Silentium and a water cooler.

Build:
Apex PCV-588

AMD A10 6800k Richland Black Edition 4.1GHz (4.5 Turbo)

Noctua NH-U12P Heatsink (has a lot of awards)

Asus A88XM-PLUS Bolton D4 (recommend the pro version more 3-pin fan ports so you don't have to use splitters)

Rosewill RNX-N250PCe wirelesss card

Poopy RAM for now
Poopy power supply for now

1 out of 5 eggsMore Cheap Junk From China

Pros: Price?. Good internal airflow.

Cons: Front USB 3.0 ports don't work. Internal drive quick connects are cheesy (still have to use screws to keep them from moving).

Other Thoughts: First off, let me just say that if you're looking at any case in this price range it's not going to be very good quality. Save your money for something higher priced and hopefully it will be better quality.

After spending half a day transferring all the components from my old case to this one I fired it up and everything seemed to be good.... until I plugged my Xbox controller into one of the front (top) USB 3.0 ports. The LED lights on my controller kept blinking nonstop which wasn't normal. So I plugged it into the other one, nothing happened at all. Plugged it into one of the front USB 2.0 ports (separate connecting cables inside by the way), and it worked fine. I tried a couple other components and they didn't work in either one too. I know it's not my motherboard because I removed the USB ports and cable from my old case and tried them and they work fine. This is ridiculous! There's no reason why a brand new product shouldn't have all components in it working. I don't want to spend the time pulling everything out and putting it back into my old case, then sending this one back, waiting for a replacement, then burning another half day re-installing everything and hoping the replacement works. So I'm just going to suck it up and not have front USB 3.0 ports. Which sucks because that is the main reason I chose this case over other cases in the same price range. Do yourself a favor and just save up some money and buy a better case.

I guess tomorrow I'll burn some more of my time pulling half the case apart to see if the wires are not fully connected or a pin broke off up at the ports. I shouldn't have to do this but I suppose it's worth a try. I'll update this review (if I'm able to) if I find something.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

Pros: Easy install of components. Nice looking unit plenty of space and more spots for fans.

Cons: only one fan with a super bright ugly LED. I guess that is to be expected with a gaming case but I always remove them for basic fans and never plug in the front LED's.

Other Thoughts: overall you cant beat this case for the money. its solid built, easy install of optical drive and hard drives. LED's are bright and can be annoying but their is much worse things in the world.
