5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Looks cool! (of course).

Cons: Fragile, collects dust easily, gets dirty very quickly

Other Thoughts: I purchased this case in late 2007. The case has finally fallen apart and needs to be replaced. I've taken good care of the case and it has been through several long-distance moves, too. I wanted to clarify that although fragile, the case will last a long time if taken care of properly.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect

Pros: Nicest looking case ever. Very sturdy. Didn't strip any screws. Comes with extra screws. No gaps, everything goes together perfectly. VERY CLEAR. Does not scratch easily. x5 80mm fan slots.

Cons: Depending on motherboard, the case only had x6 riser holes available when my mother board needed x8.

Other Thoughts: You need to buy x5 80mm fans. Make sure you install the Hard drive and DVD burner before the motherboard plate/side panel because you won't be able to screw them in on one side. Take x2 hours. Very easy to put together.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Case

Pros: Nice looking case that gets the job done

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: It was not that hard to set up. Despite what other reviewers posted, I did not find it much of a challenge to set this up.

Also keep in mind that this case is not made out of metal. So don't lean on it. =)

4 out of 5 eggsEhhhh

Pros: Case looks very nice and fits my Zalman 9900 Cooler. Acrylic is pretty thick, case isn't that flimsy. Comes with some gloves to use so that it doesn't get fingerprints.

Cons: Front came broken in half. With Zalman 9900 installed, cannot put the 80mm fans on the inside. So had to mount them on the outside. Its shipped in a very thin little box and the acrylic isn't that well protected.

Other Thoughts: This case would be great if it didn't arrive broken. Everything about it is very good. Was somewhat hard to assemble(took me about 2 hours) With the Krazy glue i used to fix the front of the case, it seems to be holding. Just going to purchase an Antec nine-hundred two case. I won't bother to return it.

3 out of 5 eggsGood case for the money

Pros: - Looks awesome - its a very neat design that its clear on all sides and you can see all the pc hardware
- good ventilation - having five fans pushing air really makes this thing breezy inside
- spacious interior - since all sides are perfectly flat and have square corners, it makes the most of the total dimensions of the case

Cons: - bad construction - the acrylic panels themselves feel pretty solid but the problem lies in the screws that hold them together. the chrome headed thumb screws actually have plastic heads which makes them feel pretty cheap.
- more bad construction - the screws that hold the removable side panels on screw into little grommets embedded in the acrylic of the adjacent pieces, and one of them has already came out and no longer holds the screw securely and another one is starting to feel loose.
- needs regular cleaning - when you combine steady ventilation and the static cling of acrylic panels you get a load of dust accumulation, and the clear panels make it more noticeable than the average case.

Other Thoughts: If youre into clear sides, this would seem like an awesome idea. It is a really neat and pretty case, but good idea, bad design. the way the panels are held together needs to be more effective. But if you want to buy this case and dont plan on doing much handling of it and taking the sides off very often then it could work for you. For the money, you get what you pay for.

4 out of 5 eggsgood case

Pros: shows everything inside. great airflow.
as mentioned in another review the kit can be built to have the psu on the bottom and that works great if you are worried about your heavy psu being up high...

Cons: shows everything inside ie fingerprints and dust

Other Thoughts: 1. the dust problem can be controlled by useing fine wire mesh fan screens..... just remember to vacuum off the dust that has collected periodically...
2. the kit comes with cotton gloves.... use them! and keep them nearby in case you need to open the tower to move things around. also its not in the instructions but wash your hands before handling parts, as washing hands reduces the likelihood of leaving fingerprints.

4 out of 5 eggsVery nice

Pros: Well first, I have to say that this case looks really cool (that's why I got it). But more than that, it was straightforward to assemble, and with all the fans installed (see con), it has good airflow.

Cons: It doesn't come with fans. I had to drive to an electronics store to buy five 80-mm fans for it. Also, in order to add disc drives and hard drives, both side panels must come off.

Other Thoughts: Some people have said that you have to take off the panel with the motherboard just to get inside, but what I did was flip the back panel upside down and switch the side panels. This put the power supply on the bottom (the power supply doesn't sit directly on the bottom, but I put an extra CD slot cover from the front panel under it and it sits up perfectly). All I have to do to get inside is unscrew the side opposite the motherboard (unless I am putting in new disc and hard drives, but for me, that won't happen anytime soon).

4 out of 5 eggsGood case ,some skills and planning needed

Pros: Good amount of room inside

The acrylic is fairly solid, doesnt feel like its going to break.

Looks great when you have some colors going in it

Everything is pretty well labeled and the instructions arent too bad to follow.

Cons: I knock off one egg only for its complexity. (I knew this going into ordering).
1. You need a clean place and a few hours to assemble the case. I highly recommend having your components ready so you can put each part in as you go. MUCH easier that way.

2. Because its clear , it is easier to see fingerprints on the case and dust inside. So you may have to have someone open it and clean it every so often. Canned air will do some of it, but you may need some Windex at times.

Other Thoughts: I have had my eye on these Acrylic cases for a year or so. I finally got my opportunity to build one. I did some planning ahead of time. If you are going with this case you want some led fans and nice grills.

5 out of 5 eggsSimply Beautiful

Pros: The Case simply looks awesome, especially combined with the clear led lights. The Cost is VERY affordable. This is not a "Cheap" case. Every part in the box was labeled I had no trouble whatsoever putting this together in about an hour. No broken screws like some others have said..guess you just need a women's touch lol. Maybe its just me but the motherboard was mounted right where it's always supposed to be mounted? Maybe others installed it upside down? I've put new hard drives in twice since purchased and not once did i need to remove the motherboard side.. As for reaching the opposite hard drive screws the front panel is designed with side panel screws so you can pop it off to reach them. Or you can just leave those screws out like I did and no fuse whatsoever. I would advise you to use the gloves provided to avoid leaving fingerprints inside the case during build, these show up under the lights and is not attractive. I love this case so much I'm going to use if for my third build.

Cons: No front USB ports easy solution for me was to get a 3'5 usb hub to install in the drive bay. There are NO fan screens for the five fan holes in this setup so moths and tiny flying things will find their way inside when attracted by the lights, living in the south this is something to consider. However I put metal mesh screens over the fans to keep them out. I find tiny corpses attached to the screens daily in these summer months. To clean them simply wipe with a cloth.

Other Thoughts: This case stays cool the five fans slots plus a cpu fan and a psu fan is more than enough.
