5 out of 5 eggsSolar M1R tower

Pros: Came pre-wired, has usb 3.0, and fans were included.

Cons: Doesn't have upper ventilation, upper fan mount.

Other Thoughts: Good economical choice for a cheap build, and still looks good. The tower was receive very quickly. Very happy with it, proud to be a returning customer.

4 out of 5 eggsGood case for the money!!!

Pros: This case is a good case for a first pc build. It comes with all the screws that you would need to install all the basics. I like the see-through side panel, great for showing off your hardware illuminated with LEDs!

Cons: The case fans that come with this aren't good at all! I kinda expected that especially considering the price. The fans barely push any air in or out of the case, which is what you need especially when you are gaming!!! I bought some Cooler Master SickleFlow 120 Red Led fans to improve airflow. Now everything is nice and cool!

Other Thoughts: If you are going to buy this case, do yourself a favor and buy some decent fans for it! You will be glad you did!

3 out of 5 eggsDecent case for the price

Pros: Like the thumb screws and the over all look of the case is nice. For the price it is hard to find a gaming case for the same price. Good room and cable access ports.

Cons: The acrylic panel needed some adjusting. the area around the IO shield needed some tweaking which made mobo instal harder than it should of been. The case had a slight bend in the bottom of where the shield goes in.

Other Thoughts: For the price i cannot complain. Most of my adjustments were easy enough. If I had spent $60+ on this case I would have expected a better case. I got this at $40 so I cant complain.

4 out of 5 eggsIt holds a pc together

Pros: Cheap, easy to assemble, good ports, doesn't look too cheap.

Cons: Microphone port stopped working after about two weeks, it's a physical connection problem, doesn't feel the same plugging it in.

3 out of 5 eggsGood, but nowhere near great.

Pros: Relatively solid case, offers decent expansion and simple cable management options. The front card reader works, and it offers on-board USB 3.0 connectors, so you don't have to deal with the pass-through nonsense.
It also offers a reset/DirectKey button, which is a nice touch.
Also, it looks beautiful. You can easily add light strips to the acrylic window.

Cons: Pretty poorly designed. The front fan is almost impossible to swap without removing ALL your drives, and then it's still a challenge.
The (pretty thick) cables from the front accessories have to go around your disk drive (if you have one), and the cables were just barely long enough. The expansion slot covers are also punch-outs, meaning you can't put them back once you take them off.
The HDD slots are also ineffectually designed, as a standard sized HDD will stick out of it about two inches. I actually had to tuck my power supply cables around it.
Also, it got crowded in there FAST. the cable management only (barely) works for the power supply cables. Everything else has to just hang around.
BTW. the stock fans are horrible and the acrylic window scratches easy, so be careful.

Other Thoughts: For the price, it's a decent case. If you're going for a PC that needs a lot of expansion and a ton of free space for airflow to support MASSIVE gaming, stay away. If you need something cheap and pretty to hold a motherboard and a few peripherals for light to moderate gaming, go ahead.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Case

Pros: Great case for first-time building, amazing cable management, and enough space for a 30 cm GPU. The two fans kept the case cool at all times. The Windowed panel looks great, and you can show the inside off a lot, cable management makes it even more impressive! Came in a really cool box.

Cons: The fans were too noisy at times, and the plastic locks for the DVD drive were very fragile, also, the panel at the back for the power supply was missing a screw. It is easy to dent the back, so be careful with that. Also, the box was terrible.

Other Thoughts: In a nutshell, this case is very cheap for what it is, I highly recommend it to anyone from amateur PC builders, to Veterans. Oh, also, check out the box, tell me what you think.

2 out of 5 eggsDont Buy

Pros: Cheap
Usb 3.0 on the front
Decent room
2.5" drive slot

Cons: CHEAP, the metal bends easily
Mine came with a HUGE dent into the rear corner.
Overall the quality of it doesnt feel so good. If there were no dents I would say you get what you pay for...

Other Thoughts: The dent I had on this unit was quite large. That being said there wasn't a dent in the shipping box. and inside the box there was a layer of Styrofoam which means they knew about this dent as it was originally packaged.

Save yourself the time and money and just buy a nicer case once.

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent Budget Case

Pros: You get everything you need for an average build
A side viewing window
Great price
Looks really good
Ok cable managemen
Sturdy

Cons: The fans are cheap, but it's an inexpensive case what did you expect
There is one cord that has to come across my motherboard because the cord isn't long enough
The rest cord comes right behind the DVD-ROM slot which isn't an issue or just bothered me
There is a tiny dent on the case from shipping, but it doesn't do anything so it's not a big deal

Other Thoughts: This was my first time building a computer and I was on a budget, so I chose this case. I don't regret it at all. It has everything I need. I was a little worried fitting my MSI R9 280 in there, but I made it work. All in all I'm really happy with this case.
