3 out of 5 eggsGot exactly what I paid for.

Pros: Got this case for around $30 on a cyber monday deal. Suits my needs just fine.

Cons: Its a cheap case, so don't expect an expensive feel. Its a shell to hold stuff in. The metal is pretty thin, and I just ended up drilling a small hole in the top through which to attach a zip tie to keep the excess psu cables out of the way.

3 out of 5 eggsMeh

Pros: Large
Airy

Cons: Front panel location

Other Thoughts: It's a case; it was inexpensive and boring, perfect for an office desktop.

However, the location of the front peripheral panel is poorly placed, as it's above the slots for an optical drive. So if someone plugs a usb cable into the front panel, it gets in the way of the DVD tray.

2 out of 5 eggsAlright,

Pros: -Nearly full metal construction.
-Nice built in fans
-Nice overall airflow
-Allowed me to install a few fans on the side of the case

Cons: -Cheap front mesh. Attempted to temporarily take out the largest mesh section, and ended up snapping a few of the tabs that hold it into place inside the case.
-Cheap USB connectors, headphone and microphone connectors in the front side
-Flimsy, low quality preinstalled wiring.

Other Thoughts: Overall, it is what you would expect for a $25 case (what I paid for it.) It is nice in the fact that you could buy a good sized mid tower for $25, but in the end, the cons outbalance the cons. I wish I went over my options more before buying this case, but it is what I have to work with on my strict budget.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Case

Pros: Good size, very quiet with stock fans, Amazing price. USB 3.0 front port! Nice looking and not over the top flashy.

Cons: It is a low priced case, so it doesn't have all the fancy features. But that isn't a con for what you pay.

Other Thoughts: Built a system for a good buddies mom. She doesn't need anything elaborate or fancy, but this case really looks good. Simple design, didn't find any sharp edges that would slice you up. Yeah it is a tad flimsy compared to an expensive case, but again for the price this is a great deal. Really enjoyed the build. Simply drop in the Micro ATX board and a powersupply and all is well.

5 out of 5 eggsCheap, Very High Quality, AWESOME

Pros: This is the best case I have used, EVER. And the cost was around $23 when I got it. I listened to the techies and got a great deal, and bought a quality PSU separately.

Cons: NONE.

Other Thoughts: I didn't come with a PSU, but if you read the reviews, lots of PSUs are DOA. I didn't want to take the chance, and got a 430W Corsair one.

The case has ample space, USB 3.0, and feels VERY HIGH QUALITY. Love it. Will get another one soon.

3 out of 5 eggsNice case with a few issues

Pros: Nice fit and finish, attractive appearance IMO, lots of ventilation, foam filter to keep dust out, USB 3.0 port (with USB 2.0 plug in case you don't have a free 20 pin USB 3.0 header-- you can still use both ports as USB 2.0), high mounted power/reset buttons make them easy to access when the case is on the floor.

The side panels fit in place very well, unlike some cheaper cases. The side vent on the side panel consists of two 120mm fan locations, which means that even if you use it as a passive intake (as I do), you can put two fan filters on to keep dust out of the case. Overall, the fit and finish of the case is good. Everything lined up the way it should, and the finish has a quality look to it.

Cons: This case back has the thinnest metal I have ever seen on a computer case. I accidentally knocked my cordless phone off of my desk and onto the back of the case... a fall of perhaps 18 inches, and it left a visible ding in the metal. This is a pretty small and light phone!

If your motherboard has the SATA ports facing the front of the PC, off the right hand edge of the motherboard as you look at it, the design of the case will block access to the row of ports closest to the motherboard. While other cases have a cutout just in front of the lower part of the motherboard plate, this one does not, and there is a little "step" on the extended backplate right there which gets in the way of the SATA ports. I bought a Silverstone super low profile SATA III cord to solve the issue.

When I slid my standard-sized DVD writer into place in one of the two 5.25" external bays, it hit a component on the motherboard about a half inch before it was flush with the front of the case. Moving the drive to the other external bay worked, but it prevented me from putting it in the location I preferred.

The case has no actual 3.5" drive bays. It has 5.25" bays top to bottom, with a plastic block attached to the left side of the case to allow for the fitment of standard 3.5" drives. The problem for me was that this plastic block blocked access to my motherboard's SATA 3 ports. The design of the block prevents the drive from going in very deeply, so it will have more of a chance of interfering with longer graphic cards or other items. The block is easily removable (four screws hold it in place), and I tried every other location inside the case, but none of them would allow me to fit my hard drive. If I moved the block higher up, the drive would interfere with the main power connector for the motherboard. Lower, it still blocked access to my SATA ports.

I eventually took the block out and used a 3.5 inch to 5.25 inch hard drive adapter. That device also had mounting locations for 2 SSDs, which was useful because this case has no provision for them.

If I have to add parts to make a cheap case work, it's not as good a deal as it seems. YMMV, of course; every build has its own quirks.

All of the above issues other than the thin metal could have been solved in the design phase by making the case 3/4" of an inch longer, with the extra space going between the motherboard and the drive cages.

Only two external bays, both 5.25 inch.

Other Thoughts: The case ended up with a couple more dents on the back. I don't know where the largest one came from. I've had a lot of computer cases, though, and never had them actually get dented from normal use before.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Enough

Pros: Low Cost, Gets the job done.

Cons: Headphone jack does that "picks up every noise on your sleeve" bit (an no, I'm pretty sure it's not the mobo sound, it's the jack). I don't really care as I use high quality wireless headphones anyways. I just decided to test the headphone jack and noticed this. Just pointing it out for you. Don't let it stop you from getting this ridiculously low cost and functional case. You can use the headphone jack in back of your mobo or sound card (even if you had to buy a new sound card it would be cheaper than buying a "high end" case).

Other Thoughts: Why waste more money on a fancy case? It's a case, it holds you're computer parts in. Buy this case and use that money to buy a better GPU or something. Be sensible.

4 out of 5 eggsPaid $23, good deal Newegg!

Pros: 120mm intake fan with filter and honeycomb bezel
Plastic SSD bays
USB 3.0

Cons: No cable management cutouts
Top-mounted power supply
Inadequate airflow

Other Thoughts: My graphics card go so hot in this case that I had to prop open the side to keep it cool. I also unplugged the PWR LED headers because it was too bright. You could probably find a better $50 case, but for $23 this one's hard to pass up.

5 out of 5 eggsWonderful for the money

Pros: Have built 8 rigs with these cases. There are very few sharp edges (the side panels aren't sharp). The "misc" bag included is very generous (even includes a couple small cable ties and a mobo speaker). No obnoxious LEDs. "Service" side panel uses well-made thumb screws with Phillips head.

Cons: Old-style "attached" pci grates are sharp and could potentially remove soldered pieces of the motherboard if you try breaking them off after the mobo's set, but no major hassle.

Airflow isn't particularly great, but not bad -- it's still dramatically cooler for the gfx cards to have the side panel removed.

The casing is fairly flimsy (but not terribly). If you should drop the case, it'll dent pretty badly, but it's very understandable for this price-point.

Other Thoughts: The mobo holders are set to match ATX style. m-ATX/etc requires some rearranging.

I bought these @ $22, and while I love these at that price, I *maybe* wouldn't be a repeat @ $50.

Idunno if any case manufacturers do it anymore (guessing there's a problem with some motherboards having non-standard pinout?), but I would've much preferred a fully-together set of JFP1 pins (reset/power sw./etc) instead of them all being split.

It'd also be nice to see a removable top PSU grate so the power supply doesn't add to the heat of the rig. Maybe it wouldn't look pretty, but I don't think you buy these cases for the looks. :)

Pro-tip: To get the case out of the box, cut open the BOTTOM of the box and pull the case by the power supply slot. It'll make your life a lot easier.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

Pros: Very good case, good ventilation. Honestly I spilled a little soda on top of the case the other day, and I'm very thankful there wasn't a fan on the top. I've spilled green tee in a top case fan before, perhaps I should be more careful.

The giant CPU Hyper Evo 212 I purchased fits in perfectly (a bit of a tight squeeze)

Cons: The power LED is very bright
