3 out of 5 eggsDIY PC case

Pros: About the cheapest PC case you'll find.
Nice general design.
Front panel ports.
Large, well-illuminated power button.
Good-sized, easy to use reset button.
Mid-tower size.

Cons: Shockingly thin metal construction.
Optical drive door built into case (just don't like them, personally).
80mm case fan feels undersized for the case.

Other Thoughts: I wanted the cheapest case I could find for a spare parts build and, boy, did I get it!
As stated by other reviewers, the case metal is very thin with many sharp edges. The fit and finish are very low standard.
There is definite worry about stripping the motherboard stand-offs, about half of which are the plastic push-down type. Frankly, this is the first time I've seen those plastic stand-offs since the days of AT cases and 486 motherboards. If you're building a cheap toss-away system (and you're a careful builder), this case will work for you. Don't build anything you expect to keep for any length of time.

3 out of 5 eggsGood for the price.

Pros: For the price this case does exactly what it is supposed to do. Plenty of bay for drives and a decent bit of room on the inside. Not really much else to say aside its cheap and it meets the basic requirements for a computer case.

Cons: The power LED is way too bright. It will easily light up a dark room, with no way to control it aside of clipping the cables for the LED.

Other Thoughts: The panels are very thin and flimsy, they also scratch really easy. There are not any feet on the case just for spots where the case goes down to make little stands, those stands will scratch really quick to show the silver metal.
Case only supports 2 fans, 80mm at that so don't expect a lot of cooling options here.
The case will not take a hyper evo 212, but I would not expect it to for the price.
There is no cable management in this case at all.

The case was damaged when I received it, newegg replaced it right off the bat. the package did not look to be damaged, so I don't think it was a shipping issue but a product handling issue when packaging the tower.

The case is less then $20 bucks, I did not expect much and you get what you pay for. It works and that is all I needed.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for the price

Pros: Great case for what you pay, which is not that much! Has plenty of room for extra dvd and harddrives. Looks pretty good with a nice blue powerbutton and added ports. not cheap looking at all

Cons: metal is a bit thin when moving the system around empty or with not much in it

2 out of 5 eggsCheap

Pros: cheap, was able to make it work.

Cons: Cheapo - dents with the bump of an elbow. Poorly designed and super flimsy. I bought 4 for a budget build for the church and I'm wishing I spent an extra 10 bucks or so on each case. Seriously, this is junk.

Other Thoughts: Save yourself the headache. Get something better

4 out of 5 eggs$18 well spent

Pros: Plenty of room for hard drives
Looks good for the price

Cons: When the side panels are off somewhat flimsy. Careful not to get you're had on the metal trays/racks inside sharp enough to peel an apple

Other Thoughts: Retired my old gaming PC to a media center and the old case was pretty beat up so I got this to replace it. It looks nice. Enough room for all my hard drives. And get the job done can't complain much for $18. Some of the rivers were cockeyed and I'm kinda old about little stuff so I had to re river them but still it was on good

3 out of 5 eggsThe Cheapest Case

Pros: $18!
This is my test platform for all the tinkering I do. It has a bunch of HDD trays and enough room to experiment with RAID. Despite the thin metal, this case is fairly sturdy with the side panels on. It looks clean and neat... at a glance... from the outside. For what I paid it's perfect! It came with some screws and standoffs and a dinky little fan (molex).

Cons: You get what you pay for, I knew this wasn't going to be a magnificent piece of engineering... and it isn't. The pop rivets are weak. The case metal is thiiiiiiin! Almost every metal edge inside is razor sharp so beware!

Other Thoughts: I will probably mod the heck out of this, not to trick it out, but to get more functionality from it. The front side panel will have a window and I think the acrylic would make it more sturdy. The bottom and top panels need ventilation so I will cut some holes there and throw on some modders mesh. The pop rivets will get replaced with proper nuts & bolts. Hell, I might even paint the interior a nice lighter solid color. This is definitely a "project" case. If you want to get some case mod practice, this is your case! $18!

1 out of 5 eggsGarbage

Pros: Cheap

Cons: screws stripped (first time in my life during putting a pc together)
cheap I mean really cheap material.
No 120mm fan support.

Other Thoughts: For the extra 10$ get yourself a DEEPCOOL TESSERACT. Best choice I made on my build.

This case WILL NOT fit a long gfxs card

4 out of 5 eggsa little cheap made but good

Pros: The side of the case seems a little bit flimsy, I have bought other cases for the same price for a more durable.

Cons: However, none the less it does its job and no other complaints.

3 out of 5 eggsGet what you pay for.

Pros: Very inexpensive. Does the job.

Cons: Soft screws and metal used in the case. I've built over 30 custom PCs, and it the 1st time I ever had a screw rip in half on me. I barely tightened it. Luckily I had spares from previous builds.

2 out of 5 eggsMeh...

Pros: It's a case

Cons: -Really cheap and flimsy
-Came already partially broken (front panel was torn off. Had to glue it to keep it on)
-CD drive cover spring catches whenever the disk tray comes out/goes in
-Month into use, the CD drive cover broke. I just pulled it out.
-No bottom feet

Other Thoughts: Like I said above it's cheap and flimsy (not just the metal, but the plastic as well), but you get what you pay for. I bought it for a small build and it works...I guess.
Should of gone with another brand to be honest.
