Pros: -Really sleek design
-Positioning of parts seems smart
-120/140mm grills on the case everywere for a good airflow
-Plenty of screws and hard drive screwless clips
Cons: -Could bring double set of screwless HD holders so that you can place them on both sides IF you had more than 2-3 drives.
-Connection to front panel plugs could be placed on the bottom rather so that you have less chance of damaging them on removal
Other Thoughts: Really great case, only cons are just recommendations. Not major issues. Really happy with the design and the airfow control. 120/140mm are way quieter than 80mm and move a lot of more air.READ FULL REVIEW

Pros: -Easy setup
-Very awesome GUI with mouse support
Cons: -BIOS sata mode AHCI is on by default
-Could use an additional support screw around the middle
Other Thoughts: The missing middle/center support screw hole its something that seems standard now days for mATX boards which kind of sucks because if you upgrade the cooler, this helps support its weight if its a big one. Not major but it just something that make its more safe i guess.
The AHCI comes on by default and people installing Windows XP OS might have issues with this. I had to slipstream my OS XP cd to a new one with Service Pack 3 so that it would install and recognize all the hardware but my guess is that this was give the new CPU architecture. But AHCI was my first OS install issue and just so that other people don't break their heads on this. Also if you are just upgrading you should consider this because if your OS was installed using IDE instead of AHCI then you will need to change this althought i would still recommend a fresh install to avoid driver issues. Sata mode IDE native used to be the standard but I guess they are starting to change this now.
