4 out of 5 eggsNot THAT bad...

Pros: For the price, it is a somewhat competent case.

Cons: It is cheap, and you do get what you pay for. It has twist-off PCI slot covers that can't be replaced, but such is life with cheap cases.

Other Thoughts: This case isn't going to be the greatest thing you've ever seen, but as far as basics go, it's not bad. It can hold full-size boards and has plenty of 5¼" drive bays. Although I have not used the case yet, I did notice someone say the front USB ports are only USB 1.1. I looked up the manufacturer's specs and sure enough, it lists them as 1.1. That's really my only big gripe about it. I bought this for an economy build but decided to keep it after getting another, more expensive case that I really didn't care for.

2 out of 5 eggscheap... for a reason

Pros: Price: for the cost its ok, but I wouldn't say worth it. Strongly suggest going with something a little bigger.

Cons: poor quality, no room, non-standard sized spaces. Returning as I write this.

I tried installing the motherboard and it doesn't fit, matter which angle I put it in. Its standard ATX mobo, which this thing claims it fits, but doesn't.

The front panel doesn't support standard 120mm fans which it claims it does, but there isn't enough space for such a fan.

Power supply mounts to the top instead of the bottom making it nosier and top heavy, so easier to fall over.

Other Thoughts: I strongly suggest not getting this. I personally went and got an Antec two hundred V2. This case is much better, easier to maintain, easier to cool, much quieter and easier to install. It also comes with a mount point for a 2.5" HDD on the bottom and it also has a 2.5" SATA HDD hot swap bay on the front. Its also the same price ($39.99) after $10 rebate. There is a reason why this Gigabyte case was on sale for $19.99...no one in there right mind would buy it for any more, personally I don't think it is worth even that.

4 out of 5 eggsJust what i needed!

Pros: everything went in easy
enough space for what i needed (though it was tight)
came with screws and etc

Cons: cheaply built and somewhat flimsy metal
nothing special inside
would of liked to have more standoffs but i had some laying around in my house

Other Thoughts: I needed a cheap case to put an old comp i had laying around that i turned into a home file server.

I wanted a inexpensive case and thats what i got

If you are making a new build and want to cheap out on the case DONT get something more expensive you do get what you pay for

Though if you just want a super cheap case for an old computer or file server that your just gonna have sit there this is a great buy

2 out of 5 eggsMeh

Pros: I'll let you know if I find any when I dig it out of the closet it now sits in...

Cons: I got it because it looked like it would be just big enough for everything I wanted to put in it (a hard drive, motherboard, cpu, video card and burner - yes, 1 of each, nothing special)... Wayyyy too tiny for that. Could be my perception of the pictures, but even the measurements they provided didn't seem right (they are after measuring it myself). Just too small for my, what I thought where generic, needs.

Other Thoughts: Went and got a Roswell. Never been so completely 'Meh' about anything Gigabyte...

5 out of 5 eggsNice SMALL case

Pros: This is a really nice-looking, SMALL case that still fits a regular ATX motherboard. Yes, it's cheap, but it is perfectly adequate and gets the job done. At 13"x 15", I can't get over how small and manageable the case is - suddenly the mid-tower is not this huge, bulky space-consuming object on your desk.

Cons: A massive video card won't fit.

5 out of 5 eggsNice budget case

Pros: - Price
- Decent build quality
- Good looking case

Cons: For $20...none

Other Thoughts: For the price it is really hard to complain about anything. I think it was $30 when I bought it, but still a very nice case for the money. Definitely not roomy enough for a big video card.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It looks great, does the job and it's cheap.

Cons: It's light and fills a little cheap. It's also small. You can't fit a large videocard into this thing.

Other Thoughts: It is a good replacement case or for a non-gaming PC.

1 out of 5 eggsWow... just wow...

Pros: Okay, so it was cheap. You know that old adage "you get what you pay for"? Well, it was EXTREMELY inexpensive.

Cons: Unfortunately, I don't even think I got what I paid for. I could spin a positive review by calling it "lightweight" instead of commenting on the thin metal, or "budget-friendly" instead of cheap. I will not lie, however, this case is garbage. It actually arrived severely dented. It arrived that way. Best part was, $.60 cardboard box that UPS threw around all over the place: fine. $20.00 case inside said cardboard box looked like someone had kicked the side panel in with steel-toes.

Other Thoughts: This product has been deactivated on Newegg, and I can only imagine why. I suppose this makes my review superfluous, but I suppose it's possible NewEgg will restock the item once I return it (I trust you guys more than that). Don't be the unlucky chump to order this product.
