Quantity over quality

Pros: -Enormous
-Sturdy
-Good deal for case this size when it's on sale
-Has door lock and kensington case lock

Cons: -Terrible fans
-Poor cable management options
-Delicate front and top panels
-"Tool-less" drive bays are not.
-Filters difficult to clean

Other Thoughts: Used this case for one of my first builds for about 3 years. That was enough time for the case fans to start going kaput, including a front fan that somehow broke off a fin and tossed it into the drive bay.
It served well enough for the price but beyond being sturdy and having tons of spare room it's not a particularly great case. The way it's set up makes it awkward to manage cables or control airflow.
The drive bays have some special tab things that I guess were supposed to make it easier to swap things out but actually made it more difficult than just having a couple thumbscrews.
The air filters are a thick spongy material that's difficult to clean, particularly since the filters themselves can't be easily removed from their frames.

Its okay

Pros: It's heavy, it has many fans and a lot of space to experiment.

Its black

and it looks good all around, power suply is on the bottom

Cons: The plastic is cheap,

all the fans are horrible quality so make sure to replace them all as soon as you get the case.

the front panel comes off to easily

the top panel does the same..

my top panel has 2 broken latches just from simply moving the case around, its very heavy and if you grab the plastic parts they will rip off..

Other Thoughts: I like the case, Its awesome and i like that its black, although the plastic could of been a little more strong.

Love It

Pros: I love this case. It is a great size if you are looking for big. the fan design seems to keep my system running cool. I love the fans right in front of the hard drive bays.

Cons: The side panel gets stuck opening and closing it sometimes. I actually broke one of the locks off and it operates better. After a year one of the 120mm fans is going so I have to replace.

Other Thoughts: Good design over all. For my next case purchase I will look at this case series first.

Massive Case

Pros: Very Large Case, plenty of room, motherboard installation is very simple, the holes in the case are marked for that very purpose. A modular Power Supply would be recommended but not the end of the world if you don't have one because there's plenty of room for all the cables.

Cons: Not a con, but something to watch out for, the CPU height limitation is 155mm (6.1) inches
And the VGA (GFX Card) should not be longer than 335mm (13.2) inches.
So keep that in mind before you by yourself a CPU or Graphics Card.

Other Thoughts: I wrote an earlier review giving this case only 3 stars because I made a very embarrassing mistake of forgetting that the rear fan plugs into the motherboard.

Cons: After about 2 weeks I haven't found anything I don't like.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this model to anyone in the market for a full-size case.

Sweet

Pros: Works great keeps my rig below 40C plenty of space.

Cons: Heavy its big and it was not cheap. The 99 Dollars is a steal compared to the 159 I paid when I got it.

Other Thoughts: If you need and an air cooling solution that works and leaves lots of room to get creative you want this case.
