5 out of 5 eggsQuality,Design,Value

Pros: Simplistic design, great build quality, good value. I was able to get this case on sale for $59.99 and I'm so glad I did!

Cons: The case has front, top and bottom dust filters, but the front and top filters have a different type of filter which is harder to clean. The bottom filter is a very fine thin mesh, and is easily removable. I wish the front and top had the same type of filter as the bottom. Magnetic front & top filters with the same material as the bottom filter would have made this case perfect.

Other Thoughts: This is my first case by Fractal Design and it was a very positive experience. My previous case was a NZXT Beta. I love Fractal Design's minimalistic style and great build quality. Other than changing the front and top dust filters to the same type as the bottom filter I would give this case a perfect score.

4 out of 5 eggsgood case

Pros: got on sale very resonable price i think fiddy bucks.
harddrive cage are removable and rotatable
comes with 2 120m fans and 1 140m top fan, and they are quiet
-black finish insdie
-very good case overall

Cons: poor front fan grill design. it needed a push in clip that unhinges the front grill for easy removal and cleaning instead you have to remove entire front bezel to blow out with air can. and the dust ring is hideous after 1 month. yeah my apartment is dusty but i would clean but is a hassle. simple slightly more intutitive design choice would have been a push in hing that unseats the fan grill/mesh that traps dust for easy cleaning

Other Thoughts: yeah i would paid 10 bucks more for an easily removable fan grill. but luckily they have other models in same price range with that feature

4 out of 5 eggsMaybe a little more than you need for for HTPC

Pros: Great ventilation, good areas for cable management, plenty of drive slots

Cons: No speaker (was issue with new build & identifying ram issue - had to buy my own speaker).

Also had issues also with my power button on the case being pushed down and then getting stuck. Took it apart to try to fix it myself - looks like plastic clip that went soft/isn't stiff enough.

Got in touch with Fractal Design who sent a replacement but after several days the replacement had the same problem. Can still turn it on/off with the replacement so never got in touch to ask for another one (don't see why they wouldn't send an additional replacement if I asked).

2 out of 5 eggsbudget case

Pros: Looks good, roomy, cable management, sliding disk cases

Cons: Missing speaker, missing some leds', lost 1 usb port by connector, tight thumb screws

Other Thoughts: It is a pain to work with case when speaker is missing and mobo reboots. Missing some basic led s. The thumb screws were too tight.

3 out of 5 eggsSolid

Pros: Small, good looking, keeps my system cool. Easily fits full size video cards as well.

Cons: Screw on the top hard drive bay was completely broken on arrival. I removed the bay anyway for airflow but it's still disappointing if I need it for the future.

Other Thoughts: Still waiting for the rebate. I am now past the window so I don't think I will ever see it. Loses an egg for that.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Nice case - quiet and easy to work with. Great air flow - proof is in the fact I have to clean the screens often and my house is not that dirty!

Cons: Power button is not in a good place - IMO. I've had the PC inadvertently shutdown by something either falling on it, barely touching it by hand/finger, or the cat walking across it. Very sensitive to the touch.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Case - would buy again.

Pros: Lots of ventilation
2 solid 140mm fans included
Dust filter on bottom (for PSU)
Great for cable management (both side panels easy to remove)
6 easy-to-remove Drive slots in 2 bays
Case fan dial controller for up to 3 fans
USB 3.0

Cons: None that I saw

Other Thoughts: I used this case to build my first ever computer. All the extra features and gadgets of the case made set up not only easy and efficient but FUN. I had so much flexibility with this case, particularly with cable management and drive location.

Love this case, will be buying Fractal for my next one as well.

5 out of 5 eggsHappy Happy Happy

Pros: I love this case. I actually did not want to send it out to the new owner.
The cable routing is very cool in many ways. 3 fans is a plus with a controller.
You can remove the HDD docks if needed for a longer video card.
Its simple and looks good.
I like the idea of being able to clean out the filters.

Cons: For a smaller case there is a lot of HDD docks. Its not really a con, but it seems like a waste of materials used to build it and only to sit there.
If there was a way to clear out the front filter it would be a good idea. The idea of pulling things apart without breaking any tabs...could be a better setup.

Other Thoughts: I would buy another Fractal Design case again!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat design and size

Pros: - Looks great
- 3 case fans included
- Great airflow
- Built in fan filters
- Can fit a dual 120mm radiator
- Rear watercooling tube holes
- No rattles

Cons: - Some mounting/thumbscrew holes poorly threaded. Left some metal shavings on the desk

Other Thoughts: I've used a Cooler Master and a Corsair case before moving onto this case. My previous setups were full ATX and decided to built a mATX setup.

Not once did the two previous cases had issues with hole threading, but this case did. It left metal shavings on my desk when I first removed the thumbscrews.
