Pros:

Easy to install most components (see cons).

Cons:

The top is plastic and very difficult to remove (required to install a cooler). The switch top in the top did not operate smoothly; I had to shave the plastic switch top with a cutting tool. Also the actual switch underneath popped out and a piece broke off. I am still waiting for a replacement top and switch [it has been 7 weeks since NZXT said they would send me the replacement parts]. If you install a Corsair H110 cooler you can only use the lower 5-1/4 inch bay since the cooling tubes will infringe on the upper two drive bays space. The case needs to be about one inch longer.

Other Thoughts:

The specs read great but too many problems with the plastic construction for the top as well as the 5-1/4 drive bay issue.. Get the 630 - a few bucks more and much better case or the AZZA Genesis - my favorite case except it is about 3/4 inch too tall to fit under my work table - the Genesis sometimes is on sale for about the price of the 530 [I paid less with a rebate].
