This review is from: Fractal Design Define R4 with Window Black Pearl Silent ATX Mid Tower Case
Case has lots of room overall to maneuver cables and customize how/what you want. So much room that even non-modular PSUs can be made to look modular! Yeah. Serious. Extra expansion "slot" in the back lets you use usb-based expansions and whatnot without sacrificing actual motherboard slots.
Steel case feels heavy. Almost as heavy as my previous server grade ex-atx case that was also steel based. Thumb screws for side doors were poorly made/finished and required working with to wear them in unlike my ancient Titan 650 whose thumb screws were rived in to make them pathetically easy to work with (like the makers only tested them with the holes they were drilled from rather than switch the screws around to verify they were finished well) . Blue power LED is overpowering and should have been located somewhere away from the USB ports (or made smaller). In dark environments one can't see the USB ports because glare from the LED prevents from one seeing the ports clearly. :/
Case is solid for the price especially if you can get it for less than a Benjamin. Do note it's steel so in a tricked out system it will feel heavy to maneuver around!
