This review is from: SIGMA ZEN ZEN-WDP diamond pink SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
It's the color (pink) that my daughter wanted. The front door is solid anodized aluminum, very sturdy.
Everything else. The case was crushed out of shape before it was even packed. I know this because the packing materials and shipping box were in perfect shape. This means that it was boxed AT THE FACTORY with some serious structural flaws. The side panels do not fit on properly, whoever assembled it at the factory bent them to fit the crushed rear section of the case. Also, to say the panels were "installed" is an overstatement. The L-shaped hooks that you fit the panel to in order to attach it to the case were crushed FLAT, by sheer force, and then the thumbscrews in the back were forced into place.
Also, all of the "screwless" fastenings for the expansion cards, disk drives, and optical drives are loose and poorly designed. Do not think that you will be able to install any of these devices in a screwless manner. In addition to wrestling to fit it into these clamps, you'll also have to secure it with the normal number of screws.
I've purchased a lot of cases and assembled a lot of computers. For this one, for my daughter, I went against my instincts and ordered this case because it was pink and she wanted it a lot. Unfortunately, my instincts were right - the case is junk.
What makes it worse is the obvious structural flaws which I had to overcome with a TWO pairs of vice grips and a hammer. I had to bend this thing back into shape in order to get the side panels to fit properly. These flaws were NOT SHIPPING FLAWS, since the shipping box and packing materials were 100% intact. This item was boxed at the factory with obvious disregard for the quality of the product.
That reason alone would be enough for a 1 star review.
