4 out of 5 eggsGood basic case!

Pros: Good basic case for a starter basic build. Solid metal construction.

Cons: Would have prefered a bottom mounted CPU. Also the toolless mounts for the drives are low quality, snapped one of them trying to mount the drive.

Other Thoughts: Would purchase again.

4 out of 5 eggsSimple, cheap and easy

Pros: As the title says, it's simple, cheap and easy to install components into without screws.

Cons: Broken tachometer signal on the pre-installed with the case. System does not detect that the fan is on but it is and I have tested the tachometer signal on the motherboard with a spare fan and the tachometer signal is picked up by the system. Also as a previous reviewer said that the USB and front panel cabling "were a waded mess". Knocked off one egg for both of those issues.

Other Thoughts: Other than the broken tachometer signal on the pre-installed fan, everything about this case is great. I also like the holes in the bottom left of the case for water cooling in the future if I ever decide to go that route. If I ever need another case this is the one that I will go with in the future.

4 out of 5 eggsSO far it seems ok, i will update

Pros: cheap, basic , clean case..

Cons: the usb wire/audio cable, were a waded mess, had to hang the panel with a weight to straighten them out, took a couple of das to do so.

Other Thoughts: if you want a seriously cheap and horrible case see XIGMATEKS aeos case, i left a review, however so far this case is decent for the price, once i complete the build i will submit another review

3 out of 5 eggsOK

Pros: Cheap. ($25 at the time of purchase). Interior and exterior are simple, good for a mid-end build.

Cons: Doesn't come with enough standoffs to fit as 12x9.6'' motherboard.

Other Thoughts: Buy extra standoffs before purchasing this case.

3 out of 5 eggsMediocre

Pros: This case is cheap, nice size, light. and have a rather simple design. Case's cover can be taken off on both sides. Great for a mid range computer built.

Cons: There is quite a few cons. The case is made of really cheap metal. The front panel is really hard to take off and there is no front fan. It'd require some strength. Screws and all were included, but they don't fit as the instruction booklet states it to be. It feels like they just grabbed a random amount of screws and threw it in a bag, cause I only had six of the nine motherboard base screws. Installing an external 2.5 drive, such as a card reader is really annoying, cause you'd need to install the adapter that came along with the case.

Other Thoughts: For the price, it's pretty worth it. But it's really time consuming to put in just the hard drive, CD/DVD drives, and especially a 2.5 card reader...
