2 out of 5 eggs not recommended now 11/02/2015


Pros: see my previous review. liked the front and I liked the brackets on the inside and thought it was a good deal for the money.

Cons: the real problem with the case is the back where the expansion slots are. first of all they are the break off kind, fortunately have some covers remaining from past builds to put back if I decide not to use that slot. that is minor. the major issue is that the back, where you attach the fasteners for the expansion cards, doesn't line up. had to bend the bracket for a wifi card to keep it from being mis-aligned when I tightened the fastener. the bigger issue is when I do the same with a video card, which the bracket for is not bendable. when fastened down, now caused more tension on components than I wanted to deal with. big decision-major surgery on the case to try to drill another hole to where it is not as tense, or contact company and send back? Really would cost almost as much to ship this as it cost and thus not worth it. Ended up pulling out the expansion cards and manually bending the back of the case (really, the metal is "that" thin) and the holes now line up better. Less tension now. Remaining problem is also that the back panel still looks like it is not lining up quite straight, but I guess that whatever no one else knows won't hurt them. I cheaped out on a case before, an nzxt, but did not have these kinds of problems.

Other Thoughts: Seriously want to like this case, especially the front part of it and the interior. But the rear of it had serious issues for me, especially where you have to attach stuff. Things are not lining up properly-I have built many previous systems and not had this kind of problem. Maybe it is just my unit.

4 out of 5 eggs good for the price 10/25/2015


Pros: Inexpensive. Case material/mesh on front looks and feels good. controls and usb(has a 2.0 and 3, plus audio plugs on front) are placed nicely on the top, as most will sit on the floor. Painted on the inside and didn't have sharp edges. Has dust filter for the psu on the bottom and top fans. fair amount of room on other side for cable management. wires for front panel, audio, etc., seem to have adequate length for routing. Blue trim on the front was annoying for some but subjectively I like it. Enough room for cooler master hyper 212 evo. had no trouble with msi atx z170 board, installed standoffs just right. easy access to back for mounting coolers. Good mounting options, trays for hdd and ssd. comes with one okay fan in the back. Rubberized texture on controls area, nice touch.

Cons: sheet metal thin, that's for sure. the top 5.25 bay not usable for optical drive due to the wires and connectors not being angled the correct way. Front somewhat hard to take off. the feet are hard plastic so they will slide if put on hard surface. slot covers not replaceable/break off kind and the metal in that area very thin and flimsy. main gripe I have is that putting wifi card in on of the pcie slots, it did not quite line up by around 2mm and if fastened in, the card was not aligned in the slot all the way. was afraid to run like this and so bent the bracket on the card to allow it to be fastened in and aligned properly. this card had a long area on the bracket that was bendable. We will see if later when I add a video card if this is an issue. some of these issues are expected for the price, but the alignment problem is a bit more serious.

Other Thoughts: took some bending of a bracket for a wifi card with a couple pairs of pliers to allow it to line up to be fastened into case and sit straight in the slot in the mobo. This aspect is making it a more difficult build and is an area, at least with the quality control on my box that could have been better. Once built it has a nice and understated server style look on the front. nice looking quality on the front but not very good looking on the expansion slot area.

2 out of 5 eggs so so 02/05/2013

This review is from: FarStone Technology, Inc. VirtualDrive Pro 14 - 3 users

Pros: nice to run games from hdd, protect disks.

Cons: needs elevated privileges to run in win7, so the kid games, which this works well for , become a pain b/c have to supply password. inserting a vcd from file manager won't work even though the file association there. to get a support ticket you have to dig up your registration code, what a pain. some games, like the Lego series, did not work for me no matter what options I tried when making the vcd. but for the stuff it works for, it is a good way to protect disks and have some improved performace.
