This review is from: MSI H81M-P33 LGA 1150 Intel H81 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Easy to setup, great economy board, perfect for general use, web browsing, looking at picture and and watching movies.
Other Thoughts: First time I pushed the power button it started right up. Windows 7 installed perfect first try. Runs fast for a budget system.

-Intel Pentium G3220 Haswell Dual-Core 3.0 GHz
Pros: I had no problem installing everything, yea, it was tight, but I expected that.
Solid feel, nice looking.
I would love this case but.....
Cons: I'm not sure if one egg is fair, but with a mistake like this, I can't give it more.
The extension cord that is built in, doesn't work...
I installed everything, all new parts, and it went well. Then I hit the power button and nothing.
Because I'm good at troubleshooting, my first thought was to turn it on its side and plug directly into to the power supply and it started right up.
So, I took out my ohm meter and tested the built in extension cord and only 2 of the 3 connections worked, the 3rd is an open circuit, and unfortunately, it's not the ground.
So, now I have to return it meaning I have to take it back apart, wait for the replacement, and re-build it :(
Other Thoughts: I would have given this 5 eggs if the power cord wasn't defective, because it is a solid nice looking case.
You have to use this "built in" extension cord, you cannot plug directly into the power supply because the back of the PSU is pointed down and there is no room for a regular cord to fit and still stand this case upright. They supply this with an extension cord that goes from the back of the case and out the bottom. The end of the cord is at a 90 degree angle because there is no room under the case for a straight cord.

Pros: I bought 3 of these over a year ago, all are working.
Other Thoughts: I keep seeing all these people complaining about the cheap feel of them, constructed cheap, but none are complaining about these falling apart. They are light weight, but none of mine have broken, and for this price, you're are getting what you pay for.
One person here said that after opening he knew he didn't want to use it for anything important like school work, without even trying it. I bought one of these for my 10 year old daughter before the school year started LAST year, she would just throw it in her backpack, other stuff like books would be on top. Well, she's using it again this year, so how they "feel" is not an indication of how they are.
