Pros: Came shipped in the Fractal box itself, case was in a plastic baggy with two large styrofoam supports on either side. In any case, it was not damaged. Includes all the parts you need, and looks great. I like the HDD mounting solution too (vertical so it doesn't block airflow from the front fan). Oh, and it's $40.
Cons: -Bright blue LED is annoying. I hate blue LEDs. -Has terrible individual connectors for the power switch, HDD LED, etc like every other case ever made. -If you're planning on using a CM Hyper 212 CPU cooler DO NOT BUY. This case is too shallow/that CPU cooler is too tall. I like both too much to compromise so I'm just going to modify the side panel somehow. None of these are real cons, just negatives to me personally.
Good & Cheap
Pros: -It's mad cheap -It burns data onto an ancient format which is still sometimes required for devices that otherwise only decipher hieroglyphics -You can use it to install Windows.
Cons: -Still has to exist -First one I received was DOA. It wouldn't eject and therefore wouldn't do much of anything. I RMAd it with Newegg and had a new one in just a couple of days. It was quick and painless and the new one works great.
Pros: Bright, vivid colors. Easy to set up (the monitor just snaps into the base). Stand has a hole right in the center to route cables out of sight.
Cons: 1 stuck red pixel right in the center, about 3" from the top that I haven't been able to get rid of. It's a little wobbly, too, but it's not too bad.
