This review is from: POWMAX CP0327PL-4 Window Black/ Silver SGCC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case 400W Power Supply

Pros:

Case contains a nice ergonomic design with some equally nice, bright as h*ll blue and red LED's. Also features a convenient handle on the top that allows for easy transport to LAN parties (If you go once or twice a year to a LAN party, however, this feature is virtually useless to you). Pretty d*mn spacious considering it's a mid-tower case as well. This is basically a steal of a case for the price, which has dropped A LOT since I bought it nearly two years ago.

Cons:

Extremely poor build quality. Thin metal, paperlike drive bay/USB shields. Plastic is super cheap, and there are very sharp edges. Power supply runs like cr*p, even with a low quality gaming PC (AMD Athlon 64 2800+, GeForce 6600, Asus K8NE mobo <-- which doesn't exactly require loads of power to run). Although, for a case this cheap, you buy it pretty much expecting to throw out the cr*ppy PSU. I know mine blew out on me while installing the drivers and software, and I went out that day and bought a 600 watt Raidmax for 70 bucks. So don't expect much power-wise. Lots of sharp edges; poor ventilation, although, upgrading to some more fans would probably fix that problem.

Other Thoughts:

Since the cons definately outweigh the pros, I'd probably suggest skipping this case. I've owned this thing for almost 2 years, and while I haven't babied it, all the drive bay shields have somehow broken off; the cheap plastic holding the bays in are cracked; there's scratches at the top (although, that's my fault for only having about an inch of space to spare for this case on my desk), and I can honestly say as a person who's owned this case for a lot longer than most reviewers here, it's not a recommended buy. Unless you don't mind taking a 2nd trip to your local PC shop and buying a new PSU. There's better out there, both in quality and price.
