2 out of 5 eggsjunk

Pros: does the job

Cons: The case was delivered with the usb 3.0 slot bent so it could not be used and the front audio Jack would not acknowledge my headphones.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for the price

Pros: Cheap. Looks good. Machined well enough that everything fits together properly. USB 3.0 support. Inexpensive. Rudimentary cable management behind the motherboard.

Cons: It's flimsy, but for $25 that is expected.

5 out of 5 eggsnice price

Pros: Nice price! three hdd slots. Have to remove both side panels and remove screws to take hdd place holders. USB 3.0 in the front would be nice if my motherboard supported it. motherboard and power supply fit well. This is my first case with power supply on bottom.

Cons: Case is very light and flimsy. Hard to get side panels on at times.

5 out of 5 eggsCFI Prime 223 CFI-A5396 Black ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Great case at a great price ... Everything was perfect and and all the mounting screws were there including the speaker that attaches to the motherboard which is good because the mother board I have didn't have one... Only thing that was a problem is the drive bays... You have to remove two screws to get the trays out and have to have both sides of the case off to do it ... For the $24.00 or so that the case cost it has two 120mm fans, one each usb 2.0 and 3.0 on the front ... The cabling was well labeled and a snap to hook up and the case is in my mind a little deeper that most of the mid-tower cases I have used ... Both covers slid off and on easily with no effort ... Well packaged and even though the box had some travel wear the computer case was perfect ...

Cons: The power supply is on the bottom of the case and the ventilation isn't quite large enough for the 120mm fan on my power supply but that shouldn't be a big issue for most people ...

Other Thoughts: The drive bays took a minute figure out but once you get used to it it is fine .. Installing or removing drives on a regular basis would be tough ...

4 out of 5 eggsNot A Bad Case

Pros: Odd mounting system for 3.5 HD's. It uses caddies,there are 3 of them. I found the best way is to slide the HD in from left side of the case with the jacks facing left,this leaves ample room for the power and sata connectors. Lock them in place with a set screw from the side of caddy. Don't put them in facing right,that leaves no room for power and sata connectors. There's no need to remove the caddies, The fourth HD is apparently a 2.5 drive that mounts at the bottom of case inside the black base the red caddies sit on.
The optical drive cage allows 3 drives,the fourth can't be used because the drive cage doesn't extend far enough. The bottom ODD cover has nothing behind it.

Cons: The front panel doesn't snap off,you need to remove 6 screws inside the case to remove it. The front fan screws in from inside the case. You have to remove the red caddies and black base to remove the front fan.

Other Thoughts: Both fans worked on my case,but the airflow is very weak so I replaced them with fans I had on hand. All front panel connectors worked and the cables were quite long.

4 out of 5 eggsCFI PRIME 223 Computer Case

Pros: Very basic, but functional computer case. Lots of plastic to hold accessories in place, which is not so great. One of the plastic pins on the no-screw mounting hardware (all plastic) for the DVD broke off. Still, with the refund I received, this is a usable bargain!

Cons: Plastic mounts for HDD and plastic fasteners for DVD/CD are cheap. Clearance at back of HDD is compromised by closeness of side panel.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent case with room for upgrade

Pros: It's got good ventilation with the mesh, comes with two fans already that keep the system cool. With a micro atx build, it has plenty of room to breathe and to upgrade. It's nice looking and easy to assemble

Cons: The only con I can think of right now is that the front ports (usb and audio) seem a little flimsy/cheap. My headphone jack didn't smoothly slide in. But it works fine.

Other Thoughts: For the price, this case is very good. I would recommend to those who don't want to spend a lot of money off the bat.
Fits atx power supply.

5 out of 5 eggsCFI-A5396

Pros: in reference to previous review

this is a well thought out; well laid out PC case. bottom ATX and USB 3.0 is a welcome plus. i...
12/11/2013

Cons: - a few people have a case fan that doesn't spin
- there are some people that will whine about anything
- i mean anything!

Other Thoughts: you call yourself techs?! and whine about a fan and 3.5" drives that don't fit the 3.5" bays. goodness.
take a fan out of an old power supply. bolt that in the front of the case, and hook up whatever DC voltage it needs. need more fans? install more of them, and count your blessings.
be glad for a good deal on a PC case, and the world might keep turning. what a bunch of whining p*ssies!!!
