Pros:

I like the simple shape and low-frills design.

The solid black looks nice.

Cons:

The top case fan started giving me issues within a month or two of purchasing this case. It's very loud for a couple of minutes after a cold (as in, literally cold) start. I think the bearing is bad.

The LED on the front case fan is nice, but now that I have a tot crawling around it attracts him like a fly to a bugtrap. Inevitably this leads to him pressing the power/reset button(s) for his enjoyment. Unfortunately, the LED on this fan doesn't have an off switch.

The case door piece is very thin, and thus too flexible. It can easily get bent out of shape. I've never had more than a couple extra moment's of trouble putting it back on properly, but it's something to be aware of.

Originally, I wanted front-facing front-bus ports, but after having hitting my USB drives sticking out of the front more than once, I've changed my mind. Also, they make it easier for my little one to pull on them. I didn't take an egg off for this, as I specifically chose a case with ports like this, I just didn't think far enough ahead to account for a one-year old's curiosity.

Other Thoughts:

It does what I need it to do, and has room for more. I don't have many words to say in praise, but that's not because it's a bad product.

The detriments are mainly my owe personal quirks. Having a bad case fan is why I deducted an egg. I still think it's worth 4 eggs, because I don't think the manafucturing defect that's with norm is worth penalizing them more than that.
