4 out of 5 eggsYou get what you pay for

Pros: Very light, ventilation keeps it as cool as it looks. Can fit a bigger GPU than my old Sentey full tower (400mm length).
Plenty of room for cable management.

Cons: The metal on this case is extremely thin and flimsy. The fans, even though they do a good job of keeping the case cool, fail very quickly so I have heard. Had no problems up to this point, but i have only owned it for a few days. The feet spin back and forth, just a minor annoyance.

Other Thoughts: I wish it had a top mounted fan just to ease my mind about fitting a high end graphics card into it. If you buy this, just remember you get what you pay for (this thing just feels a bit cheap).

4 out of 5 eggsnot bad

Pros: Good design at a reasonable price. The case has good hard drive mounting options and the cable management features are not bad at this price range.

Cons: The case is made out of very thin Aluminum, bends easily without much force, be careful! The fans that come with the case are garbage, recommend replacing them. Wires from the front panel are not well managed, but this isn't too big of a problem.

Other Thoughts: Overall I really like this case, it's a good design with plenty of options. My biggest gripe are the fans that move next to no air, replaced them immediately.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Value

Pros: Light weight, easy to open and add guts. Biggest reason for selecting this case is the front usb ports(2.0 & 3.0) two of each and audio jacks.
Old case fans were quite old and due to die, included fans in this case only added to the value. The new fans do move air and are quiet.

Cons: Screw less handles for drives did not work to my satisfaction.
I old school I guess. But they did include sufficient screws to mount drives tight.

Other Thoughts: Very pleased with this case. Everything fit easily and with room to spare.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little case, try it why don't you?

Pros: +Excellent cable management compartment behind motherboard
+Access port behind CPU for heatsink/fan installation
+Plenty of front USB ports
+Quiet, decent fans keep things pretty cool
+Very subdued lighting and tinted window keep things from being ridiculously bright
+Sturdy, but very lightweight, and very, very few sharp edges
+Card readers! That work! And just SD and MicroSD, so you don't have a bunch of pointless holes for cards you never use
+The box it comes in says "BE GAMER" on the side. It's great.

Cons: -Limited room inside the case. Makes hard drives difficult to manage with the PSU being right there. It's small enough to carry under one arm, though, and lightweight to match. Bit of a toss-up.
-Some bits of metal arrived bent. Thin enough that I could bend them back, though, but thick enough not to snap off easily.
-Expansion slot covers have to be permanently removed. By twisting. Recommend you do so before installing your motherboard.
-No additional fan slots, although so far the case seems to be keeping remarkably cool.
-The box it comes in says "BE GAMER" on the side. It's terrible.

Other Thoughts: If you need a case for a first-time build, a little gaming rig, a mid-range machine, or even for taking to LAN parties to show off to your friends, this thing will do the job. It ain't perfect, but it has lots of features that make it worth getting, and the quality doesn't match the low, low price. Which is to say, it's pretty nice. Also, it says "BE GAMER" on the box. Try it, you might like it.

5 out of 5 eggskant beat the price

Pros: for the price its amazing - looks killer -sturdy as hell -

Cons: no instructions included what so ever - I have never worked on a tooless case before and it was a challenge - there is little room on the top front - you need little hands

Other Thoughts: If red is your color buy this case now

5 out of 5 eggs  Very high quality for the price!

Pros: Very sturdy case. Would recommend to anyone building a PC high budget or low budget. Not much else to say, mostly everything is a pro!

Cons: Only one real con. And that is the fans are not very good, I would recommend replacing them.

Other Thoughts: In the details section it claims having all tool less expansion slots, but only the 5" expansion slots have a tool less feature, just keep that in mind if you really hate screwing in any hard drives.

4 out of 5 eggscheap and reliable

Pros: very cheap
screwless design for optical drives
open space to hide wires
comes with a lot of usb ports

Cons: hard drive cage is very low to the bottom of the case
there isn't enough room to add more fans so you'll be stuck with only 2

Other Thoughts: buy better fans to replace the ones installed

5 out of 5 eggsGreat budget case

Pros: The two 120mm fans may not seem like a lot but they do create some decent airflow.

Cons: Rather the power light be red instead of green.

Other Thoughts: R9 270x by FXF barely fits haha

5 out of 5 eggsALMOST PERFECT

Pros: Cheap with enough room for full size ATX board. Very solid for light weight case. Mine came in perfect shape even though box took a beating

Cons: Short a few stand offs. Red theme is great except for the green power on led. Funny hard drive led is red built into the green power LED
