2 out of 5 eggsNot quite as advertised

Pros: Small case, not overly complicated, lots of room for large video cards, and a couple of HDDs.

Cons: Apparently 400W doesn't mean 400. It means 300W.

I've ordered both the 300W and 400W models. One for a HTPC that didn't have a separate gfx card, and one for my desktop, that does. I specifically wanted the 400W one because of the GTX 560 I have.
Apparently, I did myself a disservice and didn't check the power supply until months later, I was shipped the 300W model. Even though the box said otherwise. Too late to return now. Wish I'd known that.

Other Thoughts: I really should have known better than to trust a cheap brand, or newegg to do their job right the first time. Lately, I've been having issues left and right with Newegg.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: - Great price and free shipping for a case + PSU
- Great HTPC look and form factor (with a big caveat about the optical drive)
- Not a fingerprint magnet
- Ample ventilation possibilities
- Ample expansion possibilities for 2.5" and/or 3.5" devices
- Ample cable lengths for front panel ports, buttons, and LEDs

Cons: - Optical drive eject mechanism was apparently designed by the receptionist or the janitor
- Useless I/O shield that required snips to remove
- Spray paint specks all over the case interior
- Front panel chrome accents look cheap

Other Thoughts: 5 eggs if you don't need to install an optical drive. If you do, be advised that the eject mechanism likely will not line up with the eject button on your drive (requiring some mild resourcefulness), and is made of the cheapest, most flexible plastic imaginable. It broke after three uses. It's a shame that they bungled that part of the case so badly, because it would otherwise be great for a HTPC. The position of the 5.25" mounting bracket also severely restricts access to the motherboard underneath (depending on your motherboard layout, of course), but it fortunately can be removed somewhat easily.

5 out of 5 eggsGood case for price

Pros: Cheap! Low profile. Removable bay frames. 400W PSU included. Front USB and Audio works. Hidden Disc Drive Bay. Running the 400W PSU on overclocked APU system for over a month now, no issues what so ever. Disc drive bay is easily removable if you have a large graphics card.

Cons: The front cover was a little broken when I got it, but what do you expect? Does not take away from functionality. PSU does not have 6-pin connector for graphics cards.

Other Thoughts: AMD A10-6800K Quad Core @ 4.6GHz
8GB G.Skill RipJawsX DDR3 @ 2133MHz
MSI FM2-A75MA-P33 Motherboard

2 out of 5 eggsQuality Control goes AWOL

Pros: Box is petite, just right for a microATX board
Sheet metal is thick enough to not feel flimsy

Cons: Can't power on/off normally due to defective front-panel to motherboard wire.
Optical drive cover has no pass button. To eject the drive tray you have to either use software control or flip open the cover with one hand and push the drive's button with the other. Brain dead design.

Other Thoughts: That power control wire is not merely defective, there is no copper at all. It is just a hollow plastic insulator tube with nothing inside! I have been assembling computers for >20 years and this is the first time I see this. Amazing!
I have the reset cable connected to the power switch and turn the computer on/off using the reset button. It works but annoys me every time.

3 out of 5 eggsGood Price but Loud

Pros: Case looks good, nice and compact.

Cons: Power supply and fans are a bit too loud for my liking and had to return one case because of a broken front door.

Other Thoughts: I can't see the hinges lasting on the front of this case for very long and I may return because I find it to be too loud to leave on all the time. I just spent $100 on a quality power supply and case to replace this one. If you do need a video card with power, get one that has the power connector on the back, although I wouldn't recommend using using a video card that needs power.

2 out of 5 eggsNot Packaged Well

Pros: Looks good and nice and small for what I need.

Cons: Received with a broken hinge so the box it came in is not adequate for shipping so I will not recommend this to anybody.

Other Thoughts: I hate the fact I have to pay for shipping on something that is not my fault for a return and will do what I can to resolve this.

5 out of 5 eggsTopower Case

Pros: First off I have to point out this is a very sturdy build; the materials are nice, thick and strong. I was very pleasantly surprised; most cases at this price range have weak materials.

Second is the volume of the little fans. They are not as load as you might think; in fact I have had many 80’s and 120’s be much loader then them. I’m not saying they are silent but they are very livable.

Third is the ability to put full size expansion cards in the case. I also want to note, you can put larger cards in this case. Just to test it, I put a 7850 in the case and it just barely clears the optical drive bay. Depending on the board you get, you may need 90 degree SATA connectors but a full size cards.

Fourth is the PSU, which is a SFX. The SFX PSU is very nice and provided clean power. The PSU alone is worth the same as the case if bought separately.

Cons: First con would be the plastic that looks nice and works well, but could break after excessive use over time.

Second con would be the SFX PSU has both SATA power connections on 1 leg. The other leg has the Molex. This is not a big problem for most build because the HDD and Optical drive are mounted together and the SATA connections have plenty of length to span the distance.

Other Thoughts: Note: My case is the TP-1687BS-400, but the only difference between this case and the one I got is the color of the front.

Optical drive button can be tricky. You may need to adjust the depth of the mounted drive to make the button contact correctly. Slight adjustment is all that is needed and the case is able to do this fine, no need to cut or shave anything.

In all the case is very nice for the money and works well for a basic build. I would not change anything about this case! If you don’t want to use both 60mm fans, take one out and add and 80mm to the front of the case!

I would make a recommendation that this case better fist smaller Micro ATX (uATX) boards. You can fit full size (9.6” x 9.6”) but that puts connections under the Optical drive and gets very hard to manage. The (9.6” x 7”) work the best.

Pros: - Excellent quality, sturdy case
- Decent PSU included
- Fits ATX form factor like a glove
- Hard drive mount is removable for easy installation of MB and HDD

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Little Case

Pros: 400 W Power Supply.
No problems fitting everything in, it's sleek, and I like the hard drive compartment that opens up to the front.

Cons: Depending on the size of your PCI-E card and some other components, space may be limited. I did not run into this problem though, just threw a low profile graphics card in. One other thing is the RAM slots interfere with cable placement when attempting to plug in Internal HD (may be less of a problem if you're using smaller than a 3.5 SATA"). Lastly, without the right tools you may spend a little time replacing the MOBO Port Template.

Other Thoughts: Still a 5-Star rating - Perfect case for the price (got it on sale) 400W Power Supply is all I need for a cheap rig, and set up was relatively quick and easy for a regular builder.
