The case is fine, if you don't want to use an optical drive 10/16/2013
It's a very nice-looking case, with good provision for cooling and very flexible storage options. Finding a case this small that allows even a low profile video card is remarkable.
Where this case really falls down are the allowances for power supply and the optical drive. If you want an optical drive, absolutely do NOT buy this case. The tiny slot in the front doesn't allow you to expose the eject button. Even worse, the mounting tray is drilled such that there's a full 1/2" gap between the front of the drive and the interior of the case. That means you can't insert a disc without using some sort of tool to push it the rest of the way inside the case. Once the disc is in there, it's not coming back out at all unless you open the case, unscrew the drive tray, and lift it up. I've never seen such a poorly planned mounting system before.
If you're planning to use the drive cage, be prepared to put a great deal of stress on the power cables coming out of the power supply, or plan to use a PS that's smaller than the SFX size standard, such as a Pico PSU. I chose to toss out the drive cage and stick the SSD to the inside of the case. If you plan to have multiple hard drives, an optical drive, and a video card, you're going to have a very bad time with this case.
I would not buy this again and may yet return it. I'm building an HTPC and would like to be able to play and/or rip discs without too much hassle.
