Pros: Decent design
Good front connectivity
Full size disc drive and PSU compatibility
Good looks, discreet status lights
Cons: Kinda ugly at the same time?
Fans/airflow management is a bit fragmented
Terribly tight fit for non-modular PSU's
Other Thoughts: I wanted to make a budget mini itx build, and also recycle some parts from my previous build (disc drive, hard drive, PSU), so this case was ideal. My PSU has way too much cable length to it, so cable management was a must for me, and even with the included cable ties, everything was a snug fit. Once I put everything in, I realized I had no fans pushing air out of the case (2x120mm, 1x80mm). all of them were pushing air into the case, and the PSU was pulling air from out of the case the way i had installed it, so I simply spun the 80mm fan around so that it would pull air out of the case. Worked out fine (not that my build makes much heat in the first place)
