Poor design 04/08/2013
Small, attractive, usb 3.0,
Ridiculous HDD mount - sits sideways mounted to the front of the case (not a hdd slot)
In order to install an optical drive (& HDD), the plastic front panel of the case has to come off, then case frame has to be unscrewed and removed. Then you have to guesstimate how far forward to mount the drive so that it fits snuggly against the front plastic panel so the button makes contact with the drive. Takes allot of adjusting. Makes no sense why they would design it this way.
3 USB cables (2 usb 2.0, 1 usb 3.0) but only two usb ports on the front of the case - had to trial and error to get both front usb ports to work (obviously the blue is usb 3.0 - but the one of the usb 2.0 cables did nothing).
Legs don't mount to the case, so could fall over if knocked - not good for floor placement.
Power button feels cheap and makes an annoying plastic click when pressed (now im just being picky)
This was only the second computer I have built, but it was a frustrating case to work with. As another review mentioned, I would not purchase this for your first build. I wouldn't purchase again now knowing how it works.
