4 out of 5 eggsDecent cae for the money

Pros: not a bad case for the money, it looks nice and the construction and material are on par with it's price range.. you can do alot worst.

- decent room internally to work with.
- room to add more fans.

Cons: - only one fan
- internally its not as well constructed as the exterior.
- LED are BRIGHT. I have to put black tape over it :P

Other Thoughts: - wish it comes with a PSU but then the price would go up and you probably get a poor PSU anyway.. so you might be better off getting a separate one on your own..

I got 3 of these case and they worked fine. good cae for the money

5 out of 5 eggsGreat HTPC Case!

Pros: Can be easily modified to hold at least 7 hard drives, solid construction, nice finish...

Cons: Bay door hangs up on the dvd drive I chose, won't fit in a standard entertainment center.

Other Thoughts: I wanted a lot more storage space than is usual in a HTPC and this worked beautifully. I'll have plenty of room in the future for all those HDDVDs and BDs. I flipped this on its side and installed feet on the bottom

3 out of 5 eggsrereviewed

Pros: takes a full sized ATX PSU. 120mm instake spot.

Cons: the ledges for the PSU will partially cover the fan os a PSU that uses a 120mm fan. I had to cut them back with a rotary tool. Its not much smaller than a midtower.

Other Thoughts: When I bought this it was the cheapest micro minitower. Its an OK case. There doesn't seem to be much to chose from in its category either. It looks much better if you paint the gray trim black.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Its compact and it has easy access to the frontside USB and Firewire. Its cheap.

Cons: The flip open cd covers on the front dont work right. I have to open it by hand every time i want to open my dvd drive. And the Blue LED lights were DOA.

5 out of 5 eggsQuite Good

Pros: Good inexpensive product

Cons: None for the price

Other Thoughts: I bought 3 of these, honestly I just wanted the cheapest MicroATX box I could get, I mean, your case doesn't even affect cpu performance so why not spend it on something that matters?

3 out of 5 eggsMediocre

Pros: Small, cheap, reasonably quiet. Seems durable enough. Easy to remove side of case. Easy to work on.

Cons: Front panel connectors, including USB and Firewire ports, must be plugged in a pin at a time.

No way to get air flow to hard drive(s), so they run quite hot.

No rubber noise grommets for hard drives.

No rails.

Other Thoughts: Brilliant blue front lights are highly annoying, but you don't have to connect them.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Not too small, works well. Ventilation is decent.

Cons: USB and Sound ports on the case are a pain to plug into the motherboard. Instead of a single unit that plugs into the mobo, you have to connect each pin individually.
