5 out of 5 eggsLove it

Pros: This is a nice looking case, probably one of the nicer ones I've owned. It's sleek and stylish without being gaudy like the majority of cases out there. Front Bezel is indeed thick heavy aluminum.

Cons: I'm not big on the placement of the front USB plugs, but that's really only because of the placement of my case. Front panel is plastic like the other guy said, but it's always covered up by my sexy bezel.
I've never really gotten the front gauge to work, so it just glows and looks pretty.

Other Thoughts: Great case for the money. I wish more case manufacturers would get some taste and stop producing gaudy junk. As far as I'm concerned the Tuniq cases are the best looking for the price on newegg.

5 out of 5 eggsEasy and Solid

Pros: Definitely a solid case. The bezel on mine is definitely aluminum, quite thick as well, sturdy. It came with my DVD burner for my build, and it went in very easily, using the tool-less things; literally one, two, three, done. Also, the door opens from them left to right, very nice since my computer is always to my right, it'll open away from me.

Cons: If you intend to travel with this case, be advised: the front bezel is heavy, so you might not want to haul it around. Mine'll just sit on my computer table, so it is fine with me.

Other Thoughts: The front panel took me a little time to figure out, (I'm new at computer building) but i figured you just pull. Front fan was a bit tricky to place in, but i just pushed it a bit, and it popped into the front.

2 out of 5 eggsNice looking case.

Pros: -Great looking front bezel, kind of reminds me of HAL from 2001 a space odyssey. Front dial lights up blue which also looks nice.

-Front aluminum bezel is indestructible, and so are the hinges that hold it. I was happy to see this considering how my previous case's holding mechanism broke after 1 month. (It was made of plastic.)

- Front power button is not blocked by the bezel, there is whole on the bezel that allows the power button to be pushed when the bezel is closed.

- Bezel opens to the right... amazing. extremely convinient if you have your PC on your right side.

Cons: -The front panel is plastic, despite what you might read in the description.

-Front dial is a usb device that did not work with my motherboard. 2 drivers are offered on the manufacturer's website, the link for driver 2 is broken.

-Wrote to the manufacturer's email detailing my problems. They replied quickly with a generic response that did nothing to help me. "download the drivers from our website, i hope everything turns out ok...". They ignored what I said in my email about the link to driver 2 being broken.

- Front bezel does not properly close, there is a gap between the front panel and the bezel that prevents the bezel from being securely closed.

- There aren't enough holes in the back vent to efficiently move air out of the case with a 120 mm fan. About 5~10% of the fan's air moving capacity seems wasted.

Other Thoughts: I would have RMAed it except for the fact that in a haste to clean up my apt, i threw away the packaging.

4 out of 5 eggsclean case

Pros: this case will never go out of style....cheap price for a solid looking case. Very clean and simple look. Just enough "tech" with the front dial...newegg gave me ten bucks off for a UPS folley....once you know...you know...

Cons: you'd think they would make the door so the top drive wasnt visible. I'd gladly pay more for some thicker metal in the rest of the case....maybe next time...just some small refinements and this case could be top notch instead of one down......top fan?

Other Thoughts: x2 3800 2gig...stock(hp's Nodus3M cant be overclocked) 2 512 kits @4-4-4-10,xfx 7600GTxxx oc 650/1.6, 3dmark05 6341 ...hmmmmm..new MB...2.5gig stable? cpu keeps my vista score @4.8, whatta you want for $800 i guess...runs better than my truck

5 out of 5 eggsBest Case Yet!

Pros: Very good case... Sturdy and very well structured. Love the sleek design, I've been dying for this case, but was delayed due to back order on this monster! Good options for either 7 80mm fans or 2 120mm and an 80mm. Installation was easy... no screws needed. Cools better than my last case... (better airflow)

Cons: Getting my 80mm fans for the front was a pain... heavy case,the tool-less design for the PCI/AGP card's didn't feel as if they gripped hard on the cards.

Other Thoughts: All in all this is an awesome case... Thanks newegg for bringing it back!

5 out of 5 eggsEye Candy

Pros: The best part about this case is that it looks awesome! Plenty of room drives...easy easy install, I love it.

Cons: The "tool-less" mechanism for holding in the PCI cards isn't the best. It gets in the way when trying to fit larger cards (video card) and it only actually works on one of my cards. Nothing a few screws can't fix. Also, if you install a drive in the top CD bay you can see the writing on the drive over the front panel. Personally I didn't like that so I moved everything down one slot.

Other Thoughts: Other tool-less mechanisms work great. Not sure why Newegg only sells the black version...?

5 out of 5 eggsVery Stylish Case

Pros: Easy access from both sides with removable sides. Case runs very cool. The gauge on the front is mostly useless, but lets face it, you're looking at this case because it looks good not because of the lame gauge.

Cons: None

4 out of 5 eggsnot bad.. little over priced

Pros: aluminum, solid construction, great styling, heavy front door, awesome packaging, lots of room and options for case fans, tool-less assembly, automotive paint, "programable" guage on the front, great packaging (no dents) (thick box), easy assembly, and extra hardware (just in case)

Cons: I am a stickler i guess this is why I gave it a 4-egg rating, (1) honestly how long has USB and FIREWIRE been around, it would have been easier if i wouldn't have had to "play" with all the single pole leads to get the front usb and firewire functional, (2) motherboard tray is removable, but you're better off leaving it there and fliping the case over as it takes less time. (3) tool-less assy for expansion rail did not fit for me - no big just removed it.

Other Thoughts: with all the thought that went into the design of the case (it is elegant), the door is cool, the packaging is heavy duty so the product comes to you in the same shape it left the factory, other than that it's a case

5 out of 5 eggsSomething Else You Should Know

Pros: Though the body is of the light weight Aluminum construction it is extremely sturdy. I also like thta someone finally saw the need for a tower with fornt access panel that swings away from the clear panel side, & placed all of the USB and media connections up front on the same side as the clear side panel.
But what they do not tell you in this information is that you can go to the Sunbeam Tech web site & download software to convert the meter in the front to monitor various key elements & peripherials within the system.

Cons: The only thing I saw wrong as a builder was the holes in the front & rear fan mount ports were to small for good ventilation. But a little larger drill bit & a drill, a lot of patience that issue was an easy fix.

Other Thoughts: One thing I found after extensive testing was Heat rises and gets trapped at the inner top folks which needs to be vented. So I modifide this case to include a powder coated steel screen mesh into the cases top inside panel to allow this for high end SLI systems.

5 out of 5 eggsHeavyDuty

Pros: Excellent quality for the front door. The front door is a very stylish Aluminum finished door. Everyone around me is impressed with this case. BRAG.....

Cons: The side window has 8 silver pins. I don't know if that's the style or what.....I kinda don't like it. But that's just personal point of view.
