Pros: Very large for mid-tower case, good quality, easy to work inside, nice design, supposed to have (see Cons) a lot of ports: USB 3.0 x 1 (top), USB 2.0 x 2, eSATA x 1, HD/AC'97 Audio (front), great ventilation - options to install up to 5 fans (2 fans are included), hard drive EZ-swap door on the left panel, great attention to little details
Cons: I received the case that is not the one shown on a web site! If you ordered this case because you wanted to have an eSATA port on the front of the case (like I did), you are in for a big surprise. There is NO eSATA port at all! There is a place in the shape of the eSATA port on the front of the case, but it is plugged! Instead of an eSATA port there is however an extra USB 3.0 port at the top of the case near the storage tray, so you get: USB 3.0 x 2 (TOP), USB 2.0 x 2, HD/AC'97 Audio (Front) Ports. Hardly an improvement! Who had such a idiotic idea to change the originally great design into something so much boring. I would never even consider this case if I new it had only USB ports and no eSATA.
Other Thoughts: After calming down a little bit, I have to admit that I shouldn't have given this case a 3-egg rating because this case is great! It deserves 5-eggs but only with eSATA port on the front like it is shown and described on the web site. I have to say that I am very disappointed with newegg.com for misinformation about the product. I never had any problem with anything I ordered here, so this experience comes to me as a big surprise. If you guys there know that it is a different product, show it as a different product and let your customers decide what they want to get. Don't make a decision of sending to us something that we didn't order.
Newegg! Please, send me my case!
