So nice I bought it thrice 9/4/2020 8:46:31 AM

Pros: Great case. Matx, small footprint. Has room for extra HDD/SDD's. Has dust filter in front. No sharp edges and has a well machined construction. I added extra HDD's via a HDD caddy for a NAS and it fit without trimming. Not flimsy

Cons: Two of the three MATX motherboard installed were a tight fit against the cd drive tray- upper right corner of motherboards. (my only complaint)

Overall Review: Great case. I haven't found any MATX case that I have liked better. Started building computers in 1996 with a Pentium 100, then 1998 with a Pentium 233 w/MMX. Now Asus Z490M with a 10700k.

A good solid little case 9/2/2020 5:02:31 PM

Pros: Looks good. Everything fits in there nicely. Well constructed with no sharp edges. Good airflow for a MicroATX case.

Overall Review: I strongly recommend this one. It only has one intake fan in the front, so make sure to buy a nice exhaust fan since that's more important than the intake.

Meant 3 stars, but it wont let me change a missclick 8/27/2020 3:59:35 PM

Pros: Sleek looking
Plenty of ventilation
Fits standard P/S Units

Cons: No rear fan
Front case fan makes 3.5 HDD install difficult
3.5 HDD Install bracket doesn't sit in front of front case fan
Front usb/audio ports can be located in strange spots

Overall Review: I ordered 4 of these cases 2 one week, 2 the next. First two had the front side usb/audio/power button located on the side of the front bezel (which for my installation sucked), the next two had them on the front of the bezel (much better). All the pics etc showed them on the front so not sure what was up with that.
My only other complaint was the way the mounting bracket for 3.5" hard drives sits. The case has a front fan on it, and with the hdd mounting bracket that is included you would think it would be offset so the hdd's sit in front of the fan, nope.
They do sit in front of the fan, but not in a position that would benefit the HDD controllers from some cool air.
One other point, I was installing surveillance 3.5 hdd's which dont always have the same mounting points as standard. I was able to install them, but it would have been easier if the front fan was a slim type.

Good Case 8/4/2020 12:44:25 PM

Pros: nice compact size and i can fit in an ATX power supply, unfortunately, my motherboard was dead, so i hadnt put it together yet.

Cons: The only con is, that the cd rom tray could be shortened by quarter inch as it takes a bit of wiggling to get the motherboard to fit.

Overall Review: I would definitely recommend this product.
