This review is from: Rosewill FE-M010 Black SECC Steel MicroATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: There is a fine line between inexpensive, functional, budget equipment and useless junk. Rosewill tightropes that line with this case.
*The case looks nice and is very compact, both of which I consider pluses for the less than $20 I paid for it.
*No major problems working with the case as some other reviewers have stated.
Cons: *Ridiculously flimsy. If you thought Rosewill's old budget cases (the $30 ones often on sale for $20) were a bit on the flimsy side, this case takes it to a new level. Just about every panel will buckle under its own weight. I often balance a case on my thigh while working on it. Both side panels as well as the bottom panel would actually sink in a little under its own weight as I did so. It would pop back into shape after releasing the pressure but it's still unsettling to say the least.
*No exhaust fan included like Rosewill's older budget cases.
*Not double boxed for shipping like Rosewill's older budget cases.
*I bought 2 of these cases and both screw bags had broken open and the screws were scattered all over the inside of the case.
Other Thoughts: I would wait until one of the older Rosewill budget cases went on sale (The easiest way to tell the older cases from the new ones is by looking at the number of reviews) before settling on this one. That is unless you really like the look of the front panel. I would like to recommend it but they just cut too many corners on this case.READ FULL REVIEW
