Pros:

Excellent build quality; all panels fit perfectly, layout is quite good and the case is very roomy as far as mITX cases go. The case itself is handsome and pleasant to look at. The case itself feels quite solid and firm, but not excessively heavy or feeling of build material compromise.

Thumbscrew panels make installation and access very easy. The thumbscrew layout of the panel access is a bit odd on the back side panels, but nothing to really fret over, in my mind, although could be optimized.

Holds a full size, modular PSU quite well with plenty of room for cabling.

Side panels allow tremendous airflow for both intake cooling of graphics card fan and on the opposite side, space for two, 120mm fans. The rear has space for two 80mm fans with plenty of room to avoid motherboard interference. A very well-ventilated case.

Cons:

Thumb screw holes, at times, are not exactly aligned. Good idea for quick maintenance, although, not necessary for the HDD rack to have four of them.

Lack of SATA backplane. This would have been an absolute slam dunk case if this were standard, as the power and SATA cable management could easily be negated from the cabling nightmare that always accompanies SFF builds. This would be worth the additional cost had the case included the feature.

The side panel is 'stated' to support a 240 (2x120mm) radiator, although I'm quite hard pressed to see how based on mITX motherboard placement and side panel clearance. This requires specific radiator widths (quite slim) that are difficult to find. It also requires normal (exact) to slim fans, and even then, you would need to be a master oragami folder in order to arrange all internal components just right to fit components. A full watercooling build could be done, but incredible planning and a master's degree in spacial engineering skills should be considered a pre-requisite.

Removable side filters would been quite nice, although they are very easy to clean by pulling thumb screws and rinsing the filters. Some people might wish to not use the side filters, but would like the option of add/removing them at any time.

Other Thoughts:

Very nice looking, well designed mITX case. Aesthetically pleasing and well proportioned shape.
