4 out of 5 eggsNice case for the price

Pros: Case isn't ugly. It's simple, black, matte with a glossy plastic front. Nice big power switch, front panel is okay. Ample space. Nice airflow system (there is a sort of snorkel aimed right at the CPU fan area).

Cons: Front panel has difficulty opening on carpet, you need to tilt the whole case. Might not play well with aftermarket CPU fans or heatsinks. Arrived with an ugly dent on the right panel. PCI slots have a rotating thing to hold the cards in instead of screws, but it doesn't play well with any cards that cover multiple slots (basically any graphics card).

4 out of 5 eggsGood value

Pros: This case is sturdy, and the panels fit well.

The 120mm exhaust fan is quiet, and there is room in front for a 120mm intake fan.

Cons: The side panel has an 80mm fan grill that should have been 120mm. Minus one egg.

Other Thoughts: The internals are very basic. No tool-less anything. I'm glad the price is kept low.

5 out of 5 eggsprofessional looking - update

Pros: Very good finish and professional looking. This is a correction of an earlier post (see bizBuilder "professional looking"). I incorrectly stated that the front panel is polystyrene, which would be a "con." It is actually "ABS" plastic which is very durable and does not scratch. So this case is really well suited to business system builds.

Cons: None really. It is not highly refined and finished like some cases costing 2 to 3 times as much. But for mid-grade business PCs, it does'nt have to be.

Other Thoughts: Computer case makers - please make more cases like this! It is reasonably priced, reasonably well finished, reasonable quality and most of all, looks professional!

5 out of 5 eggsprofessional looking

Pros: Finally someone is making a moderately well-built case that does not look like a toy robot. Well designed and easy to work with. I found it to be nicely finished, elegant but not super-refined, just right for business use. The front panel is relatively simple and clean but not so completely generic as to look cheap.

Cons: Front panel plastic is glossy polystyrene which is a little soft and tends to scratch. This sort of plastic is good because it does not crack or chip. I only wish they had chosen a non-glossy matte finish that would stay looking like new longer.

Other Thoughts: I have used Gigabyte cases a few times and most were more refined than this one, but they were 2 to 3 times more expensive. I hope Gigabyte keeps making nicely finished, simple, basic cases like this. I wish other manufacturers would make more professional looking cases like this one.

4 out of 5 eggsDisregard last post

Pros: This tower is good, it being a mid size case means it has some obvious flaws, I'm planning to have 3 video cards at some point and would need to upgrade to a full tower, but in the time being this one is plenty spacious enough. The only flaw I can really see is that is it does not have THAT great ventilation, mind you I am not saying its non-existent, but if you're going to build in this case with anything that does not have amazing stock cooling, it is worth it to try to create ventilation slots of your own on this case, it being the price it is, its not that much of a gamble to drill the holes, file it, and install your own ventilation. Other then this, it fits the motherboard I chose, power supply (850w) fits snug but not tight, I repainted mine with non-primed paint and it stuck great so there's no issue with the paint job it comes with (some gloss ones wont allow for further paint on them, thus requiring alot of work to repaint)

Cons: The shipping was on the long side, but after I got over the headache of ensuring everything was delivered right, it turned out very well. It was shipped from New Jersey to eastern Canada so the shipping time is more expected.

1 out of 5 eggsGood Product, HORRIBLE SHIPPING

Pros: The tower itself works great, fits the parts i chose, is sturdy and fits enough fans to keep it cool.

Cons: Shipping sucks beyond comprehension, Was until 17th orignally, was bumped to 19th, and now bumped to 22nd, at this rate it will never arive.

Other Thoughts: Faster shipping please.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Cheap
None of the quick release/tooless design junk
I now have all the screws I will ever need for the rest of my life

Cons: Sharp

Other Thoughts: I'm using this with Cooler Master Hyper N 520, have to remove the duct, 2 year old loves her new toy...
I had to ship this one to an APO address, after adding several cases that I liked to the shopping cart this one came out to be the cheapest to ship...I still had to pay more than the price of the case for shipping though :(

5 out of 5 eggsDecent Easy case

Pros: Used case to build a machine for Mom. Decent little case for the money. Easy to build in. You have to pop both side panels off to install hard drives. Chassis is nice and stiff. Many in this price range are a bit wobbly.

Cons: None for the money
