This review is from: ENERMAX Staray ECA3175-BL Black SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Small size, but still a mid tower (definite pro for me)
Front panel has USBs and mic and headphone jacks
Huge side panel window
Front panel looks great, and has a filter for the fan. Also the Enermax logo on it isn't huge and obnoxious
Front fan light can be turned on and off (which is great if you didn't want a blue LED fan, like me)
Front fan can be replaced with a 140 mm
Good amount of drive bays, more than enough for for me
I liked the Velcro cable ties they included with the Enermax logo on it.
Cons: Again, the case is small, so you gotta be careful with wire management. It don't want to take an egg off cause it's my fault for not realizing. I had to shove most of them on the side of the drive bay so they didn't block the air from the front fan. I suggest going with a modular PSU so you don't have the same problem.
The only other problem I had with the case is that that the power button LED is EXTREMELY bright. I just unplugged it, (I don't like the blue color anyways) so it's not a big problem, but I figured I'd mention it.
Other Thoughts: I used this case for a first time build, and I loved it. I didn't have any difficulties with the case, and it looks great all around in my opinion. I needed a small case so that it can fit on top of my desk (I don't have room on the floor because of the desk's drawers) but I still wanted it to be large enough to fit everything I wanted inside of it. I saw that it was a "new product" here on newegg, (when I bought it at least) and it was the size I was looking for, so I took a chance on it. I think it's a great case and I couldn't be happier with it.READ FULL REVIEW
