Pros: Case came undamaged, with all four fans pre-installed. Assembly was easy, tool-free drive bay systems are easy to use or replace with screws. Plenty of room inside to navigate around cables and tuck them away from the motherboard.
Surprisingly, stock fans are quiet even when all four are running. They keep the system sufficiently cool even under load with a stock heatsink.
Cons: This case does not have good cable management overall. The "back" side panel comes off and there are areas to thread cable through, but even a SATA cable won't fit between the panel and the case at the very top. Only the bottom two management holes are useful for more than the fans.
The panels themselves are a little flimsy, and I can bend them in pretty easily (although they pop back out again). Not a problem if you're not rough on your equipment.
The fan LEDs are connected directly to the fan power cables, so you can't turn them off without disconnecting the entire fan.
Other Thoughts: Overall I'm quite happy with the case. For the money, it's worth it. As I said, the cable management is iffy but there is enough room in the case to at least move the cabling out of the way, even if it's still in the main compartment. Definitely worth the price for an entry/mid-level case.READ FULL REVIEW
