Not Bad, Not Great 12/31/2012
Sturdy and well built for a cheap case, painted interior is very nice and the airflow works very well when you add a fan to the front. Despite all the vent holes, as long as you keep the system sparse (mine is a bare minimum HTPC), it is still nice and quiet. Power light is a soft white, not that blaring blue that most cases have.
Great future modding potential.
It's a tight fit for drives. Had to flex the cages out with one hand while inserting HDD/ODD with the other to get them in properly. Installing spare front fans is a bit of a chore, the front panel doesn't move very far to give you access and there isn't really enough room to make use of rubber fan mounts (I had to resort to screws).
There are 4 raised screw holes in the bottom labeled "2.5" drive". It's a lie. I think it's for an actual cage for 2.5" drives, but in no way do they line up with a drive's screw mounts. (Not a con since mounting a 2.5" drive is not in the specs but you see it when you're installing and get hopeful.)
