5 out of 5 eggsBest case you will own.

Pros: This is not your average teenager gaming pc case. It's heavy, sturdy, sleek looking, quiet, and has tons of features. I can honestly say that this is probably the best case I have ever used in my life. There is literally no other case like it. If you are considering this - add to cart NOW.

Cons: Absolutely no cons - it's that good.

4 out of 5 eggsHuge case

Pros: Case has ample space for all mutli-media needs. Able to hold 6+ HDD when needed (I currently use 4x HDD and 1x SDD). Hot swap HDD is nice to have for server needs. Plenty of air flow from all the slits cut around the edge lip of the case. Sound is kept quite and isolated within the case.

Cons: Case is longer than most mid-tower cases. This may be a problem to some where space is a problem. The tool-less installs of drives is a joke. I took the screws out of the tool-less brackets and used the screws to securely hold my CD-roms and HDD in.

Other Thoughts: This case comes with a bracket for SSD support. But not much for any extra hardware screws.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Professional Case!

Pros: Best case I have ever owned. I purchased without looking at Newegg Reviews and am shocked not to see 5 eggs. This is an extremely impressive case. Fan noise isn't bad at all. The case door has sound dampening foam. The metal lip on the inside of the case is covered by a rubber lip which makes working inside the case even more comfortable. The molex connectors for the case fans were expected as the antec 900 had them as well. The feet on the case snap on but if you notice there are also holes to put a case screw into that would stop the feet from falling off. The hot swap bays are a really cool feature. You will not be embarrassed with this case.

Cons: Finger prints on the case and my power supply was a little deep to use the bottom fan location. I have a 900 watt power supply so I would assume for most there would be no issues.

Other Thoughts: Very satisfied with my purchase. I was debating between this and the Antec Dark Force 35 and I am glad that I chose this case. Computer screws were plentiful around my house so no issues with running short. Buy a pack if you have any doubt.

3 out of 5 eggsnot bad

Pros: great airflow, lots of space, professional look (doesn't look like an alien reactor core, i like that), hot swap is easy to use and for me the tool less thing worked great for a WD and seagate drive, good for watercooling

Cons: price, its giant close to a full tower but you do get lots of room, 6 drive bays was overkill for me, the snap on legs are fine but if you slide it on carpet forward or back they slide off (kind of annoying), fans are loud so swap them out

Other Thoughts: I got this in a build I bought real cheap on a auction site, personally I would not spend 170 + 30 to ship on this case. Maybe if its on sale for 100. You can get a case that just as good for 70-100 if you find a good sale. Its a great 4 "egg" case minus 1 for the price.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat case with a few little issues

Pros: * FINALLY a nicely-designed case that doesn't look like an alien reactor core
* Good build quality
* Easy to work with
* Tons of drive bays
* Hot swap drive bays with dedicated fans (1 fan included, 1 optional)
* Great materials used for case sides
* Fairly easy to work with in terms of installation of components

Cons: * Spring clips in hot swap trays don't really hold drives well
* Not very many screws included for drives (because they assume that you'll be using the plastic spring clips, which, again, don't always work)
* Case fans include only standard 4-pin molex power connectors rather than mobo fan connectors

Other Thoughts: This is probably one of my favorite cases ever. The thing I like the most about it is that you could build a system with this case for a client and not be embarrassed to deliver it. It's an understated design and the materials used are decent (but not perfect).

PLEASE NOTE That if you put a SATA-III motherboard in this case, you can NOT connect the SATA-III connectors on the mobo to the hard drive backplane connectors! They will not function properly. Took me about 4 hours of installing Windows to finally figure this out (doh!). Connect your SATA-III drive directly to the mobo and put it in one of the bays toward the top, or remove one of the hot swap bays / backplane.

The one thing that kinda bugs me, though, is that the case fans have the big, standard, 4-pin power connectors rather than mobo fan connectors. And no adapters are provided. So my mobo can't monitor or control the case fans...bummer.

Really, though, this is an excellent, easy to work with case that looks very ni

4 out of 5 eggsNice case

Pros: Very nice case with great build quality.
The Hot swap bay is awesome and the case is very quiet. It is a very solid good looking case.

Cons: The tool-less 5.25" bays feel cheap, you are better off just putting a screw in. It is sad because the rest of the case has great build quality.

The grill on the top of the case is, well, very large. Most people like to set things on the top of a computer case and you'll have to be careful with this one because the holes are big enough to let something like a paperclip fall through. What I ended up doing was putting a filter there so that things won't fall through.
The .10 it would have cost Zalman would have gone a long way in that sense.

Other Thoughts: Very nice case, just keep my two cons in mind.

4 out of 5 eggsQuiet but not perfect

Pros: quiet, clean look, no useless front door or ugly clear side panel. Overall it is a nice case. But it is not perfect, see below.

Cons: The tool free hot swap HDD mounts are a joke. The plastic insertion tab do not sit the drive all the way. So I had to push the drive in with my finger, to contact the connectors. Then to eject, the plastic tabs are so flimsy they come apart. I needed to pull the drive itself.
There is room for 2 fans on the top cover, but only one is provided, making it kind of useless.
The screw-less drive mounts are useless. The CD drive come loose when I try to use it.

Other Thoughts: I wish there was an option for a solid top cover. I think I am going to get ride of the front HDD bay, but then I will be short on front covers. I wish they provided screws for all the drive mounts.
