Pros:

Aluminum. Light. Gorgeous, stark black brushed metal "monolith-style" look. Tool-free assembly. Top panel has an optional 140mm opening.

Cons:

140mm fan is not included.

Drive cage access requires removal of front panel and then complete removal of the intake fan assembly. Sure, the drives slide right in as advertised, but only after you disassemble the thing halfway.

Other Thoughts:

Haven't yet figured out exactly what to do with the 140mm opening. I'd like it to help airflow in some capacity but right now I just have a fan filter resting on top of it. Maybe a fan somewhere down the line.

OCZ ModXStream 600W PSU cables caused a minor nightmare when I found that they obstructed the SATA ports on my ASUS P8Z77 LE. Fortunately I had a few right angle cables lying around.

Jury's still out on the slightly awkward airflow scheme, though temperatures haven't really been an issue as of yet. CPU/MB on stock cooling all around idles at 37C/35C.

It's a little weird feeling air blowing onto my shins, and the PSU exhaust smells vaguely like Home Depot.
