4 out of 5 eggsLooks nice, does the job

Pros: This case has a nice look and feel to it. The black plastic front is sturdy and meshes well with the metal case. It comes with rubber grommets to dampen hdd noise. There is plenty of room to route cables for a clean appearance (though the case itself isn't that large).

Cons: It has one usb 3 plug up front, which is a waste because usb headers come in pairs. With USB backwards compatibility in mind, why not make it 2?

Rear fan seems to be inefficient, blows a little more out than it does in.

Also, there is no place to mount an ssd... with them being common, it should be standard without a mounting bracket.

Other Thoughts: I upgraded my video card to be able to play Crysis 3. I had to cut the 3.5 inc hdd rack to make it fit.

While playing the game, my CPU temp alarm went off (using stock CPU fan - I will be replacing it). The only way to keep it cool is to take the side off. The ventilation could be better on this case, but all i7 920 processors seem to run hot as is, and I have several hard drives and additional lighting adding to the heat, so I can't list that as a con.

I wouldn't pay full price for this case. I purchased it with a rebate. It's a great case for the money I paid. I would recommend it for the average computer user who wants something that looks nice.

1 out of 5 eggsPoor Quality

Pros: Low cost

Cons: Honestly it was just to poor a quality by today's standard.
Taking it out of the box was kind of a disappointment which is never good.
The low quality plastic was severely damaged during shipping; the entire front panel had every tab but one broken completely, and 2 of the optical covers also broke, but the box seemed OK

Other Thoughts: This is not a modern design and has a very low quality materials. I would suggest you look elsewhere, despite the low cost.

3 out of 5 eggscheap case, cheap price

Pros: Bought this as a cheap atx mid tower with rebate.
Cool blue leds in the front
Comes with windowed side panel
Everything installed nicely, no broken loose parts

Cons: Front panel is cheaply made, power and reset buttons are flimsy plastic.
Beware if you use the front panel headphone jack AND are using the USB ports in the front, there will be huge sound interference and high pitched noise going through whatever sound device is using that headphone jack. Especially if there is a external hd plugged into that usb

Other Thoughts: cheap case, at a cheap price and did what i needed it to do. Didnt know about the sound problem though

4 out of 5 eggsSimple Inexpensive case

Pros: 1) Price.
Bought the case on one of the specials for 16$ AR and it's definitely a good deal at that price. I don't know if it is worth 50$ as I'd guess you can probably find some other nicer cases at that price.
2) Simple.
A lot of cheap cases seem to try to stuff in a bunch of poorly executed "features" that just end up being more of a pain to deal with than anything else. This case skips them and avoids any associated problems. Ends up feeling like a fairly old school design.
3) Light weight.
Probably related to being an inexpensive case but it is pretty light weight. It doesn't feel flimsy except for the one noted con.

Cons: 1) Front Panel USB ports- It has one usb 2 and one usb 3 port. Requires one header for each port and ends up wasting a usb port on each since each header should support two usb ports. I'd prefer to see either both ports driven off the single usb 3 header (with an included adapter for usb 2) or two of each type of port. Preferably two of each type since it shouldn't be hard to fit 4 total usb ports on the front.
2) Front panel audio jacks. Mine are pretty stiff and take a bit of force to insert which isn't entirely a bad thing but it ends up being the one area where the case ends up feeling flimsy. Will probably lessen as the jacks loosen up with some use but could use a little bit more reinforcement here. Don't notice the same thing with either of the usb ports.

Other Thoughts: The only change I'd like to see them make other than addressing the cons would be to add some way to handle 2.5inch hd's. SSDs are becoming so much more common that it would be nice to have a way to mount at least one in the case with out having to use an adapter. I think other changes like rails for mounting drives or space for cable routing etc, would push this case out of what it is, a cheap inexpensive case.

I didn't have any problems with the 3.5 inch hd mounts or the rubber grommets. For those complaining about not having enough screws I can only assume that you are using some of the screws from the case to mount the power supply instead of the screws from the power supply as mine had exactly the right number of screws for using all the expansion card slots.

2 out of 5 eggslayout layout layout

Pros: It could be one of the cheapest case with USB 3.0 front port. And it also have enough bays for 3.5" & 5.25"

Cons: Layout!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If you have a wider-size motherboard (I have GIGABYTE GA-B75M-D3P), this is not a good choice. all wires from PSU makes hard to mount 3.5" drivers and all connectors/sockets on lower-side of your motherboard. It take 3x more time to build my new desktop.
Also it is hard to put 3.5" drivers in bay and holes for screws are awful; all 3.5" drivers pop-out and it makes even harder to mount drivers and organize wires (because of bottom mounted PSU)
Additaionally 3.5" external bay is hard to mount, because it is located in 5.25" bay and hard to reach to screw.

Other Thoughts: This case itself could be a good case in price + USB 3.0, but you will get what you payed for.

5 out of 5 eggsOh man what a deal

Pros: 1. For the price of the case and the metal/plastic construction this is a pretty darn solid case.
2. Its not too big, to make it a distraction in any room, but big enough to give plenty of room, with great cable management.
3. It is really light!
4. It looks sexy!

Cons: No instruction manual, which could be a problem if you are a first case buyer. But not enough to warrant a drop in rating.

Other Thoughts: Bottom line this is a great value for the product and I highly recommend it.

Pros: NICE BASIC CASE

Cons: BAD REBATES SERVICE. YOU CAN READ FROM THEIR REBATE REQUIREMENT. HAD TO CHASE THIS COMPANY FOR 9 MONTHS TO GET REBATE. AVOID AT ALL CAUSE!

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Inexpensive
Sturdy.
Airflow isn't bad
Bottom mounted psu

Cons: Not much space for the motherboard. I had to squeeze mine in and it almost touched the drive bays.
My xfx7870 barely fit in the case. Longer cards (more than 9.4ish inches) will not fit

Other Thoughts: It really isn't a bad case but full atx boards and long video cards are going to cause problems with this. If you have higher end hardware a bigger case might be in order but this is a good budget case.
