Decent case for the money, but there are a lot quirks.

Pros: - Unbeatable price.

- Looks pretty nice, plain and simple.

- Fairly sturdy considering the price.

- Doesn't take up too much desk space.

Cons: - While some edges seem to be rounded, others are RAZOR SHARP and will fillet you if you are not careful!

- If you are mounting an optical drive and you want to screw it in from both sides to that it doesn't sag, you cannot take both side panels off. You have to remove the entire drive cage first, which, from what I can tell, requires you to remove the front panel of the case.

- The HDD LED cable is a 3-pin plug despite having only 2 physical pins. Because it has an extra pin-hole on the connector, it will not fit into JFP1. You have to plug in the HDD LED cable to JFP2, which some motherboards don't have. To fix this, I had to literally pull one of the wires out of the 3-pin plug and move it over so that there was room to plug it in. It's a confusing process, and it's even harder to explain on here.

- On the topic of room for cable management; there is none.

- Didn't come with enough screws unfortunately!

Other Thoughts: Over all, it is a decent case for the price listed. If you can put up with possible front panel connector issues, no cable management, harsh metal cuts and frustrating optical drive installations, then I don't see anything wrong with this case. My personal opinion would be to spend just a little bit more on a computer case, because you get what you pay for!

good product

Pros: simple design
decent expansion options
not too cramped for a few simple things (eg. 1 drive, 1 blu-ray player)

Cons: limited cable management
the 2.5" sliding removable drive tray has the drive screws sticking out, getting in the way of the slider guides (i had to bend the guide on the tray)

Other Thoughts: it comes with screws
it comes with a 2.5" drive tray
did not fit a 160 mm tall after-market cooler, 140 mm tall would probably fit (i'm measuring around 140-145 mm to the side of the case from the motherboard).

Nice little case

Pros: Good price for a solid basic case.
Included fan is quiet.
Front audio and USB are easy to access.
No sharp edges.
Everything fit easily.

Cons: Not really a con, but the case is small so might not be a good choice if you need to include many drives or other add-ons.

It's a nice MicroATX Case

Pros: Compact, Not expensive, Sharp looking.
The functionality of this case is dependent of the hardware you install.
It's small so keep that in mind when installing allot of hardware into it.
Mine currently houses 1 DVD Burner, 1 BluRay Burner, 1 HD, 1 MultiCard 3.5" Card Reader, and a 120mm Fan and Heatsink which I had to remove the fan tunnel and cut the side panel a little. But it fit.

Cons: Could be slightly wider, and openable from both sides. The HD tray could be extended to allow 2 or more HDs as there is plenty of room for them.

Other Thoughts: Since I found this case, I have bought 3. 2 For myself, and one I used to build a machine for a friend. I just like the look of it.

Nothing Fancy

Pros: It's cheap as hell and works. Fine build quality, no obnoxious LEDs, no steampunk exhaust pipes. It holds your components. That's all you need it for. Perfect case for someone making a mid-range build where you don't plan on using more than one PCI slot.

Cons: Didn't come with quite enough screws. Not a big deal.

couldn't be happier!

Pros: I bought this case because the reviews assured me that it was going to reliably show up in one piece and it'd be easy to work with. I was not disapointed. It's 100% healthy after a trip from CA to NC.

Cons: no back panel, so wire management was... how can I put this... unintuitive or nonexistant. it was a bit of a disapointment, but not that big of a deal. I didn't really expect many intuitive options with cable management in a micro case anyways.

Nice case for a budget build

Pros: Purchased this for a coworker that will use it for home and web surfing. Seems to be constructed well. Received it in one piece.

Cons: I don't like that the hdd sled only holds one hdd. My old emachines w3621 case holds two.
I don't like the little round post standoffs. Seems to make your motherboard easier to flex when inserting hardware.
The power button plug is a 4 wire plug. The motherboard i purchased had a 2 pin plug. Had to swap the plug from another wire so that it would work. My motherboard wouldn't allow me to just move the wires around in the plug. It would hang off the pins too far and hit a capacitor.

Other Thoughts: I would purchase it again for a budget build. It doesn't feel thin and cheap. It doesn't have any wire management and the right side of the case isn't removable. Makes it hard to remove the front plate if you need to.

4/ 5

Pros: Cheap
Good quality case for low end consumers
Came with a 3.5in HDD mount that also has holes drilled for a 2.5in SSD/HDD.

Cons: No front fan mount, can't mount a fan here at all because of the buttons and LEDS being in the way.
Side can't have a proper set of fans installed either
The back expansion slot covers can't be screwed into place, they just slide into place... They are easily knocked loose.

The 3.5in HDD mount that slides out, while it does have a spot on it for a 2.5in SSD/HDD, the screws supplied do not allow the tray to slide back into place as they get in the way of the slot. Need smaller head screws for all four points to be secured.

Other Thoughts: In all honesty, this is a great case for the price, if you are building a PC for a family member, or client and they don't want anything super fancy, then buy it. The steel isn't super thick, but it seems about normal for what you would get in a typical store bought PC.

I would certainly buy this again for anyone wanting a basic low end machine where you don't have a super hot GPU and CPU running. It's perfect for a basic build.
