More about default shipping than the product
Pros: Product is lovely Metal casing instead of plastic
Overall Review: The default shipping is all I can describe as a WHAT moment. At first UPS picked up the package and had it here by Friday. Very fast. But on Saturday - after 2 destination scans - it sat there all weekend. (UPS delivers on Saturday!) But on Monday the status changed...to sending to post office. WHAT!!!??? As a result a product in my city on Friday never reached me until Tuesday!! And it still doesn't show as delivered on my order history. Come on Newegg -- is this your default free delivery??!! No thank you.
good idea poor implementation
Pros: It does connect to the internet
Cons: After powerdown, frequently it won't reach DNS servers to resolve names. Wireless speed is very bad ... Slower than a dialup modem Common tech support resolution is to eliminate the firewall.
Overall Review: If you love wires laying across your house, then this is your router. That is when it let's you get to the internet. I can run a tracert from the router but cannot resolve from my devices. Wired or wireless.
So well designed for a cooled system
Pros: So much room for installing items that you do not need to curse the case ever. A design the pulls the water cooler up out of the way of your internals in the top of the case. Tool-less glass removal and PUSH BUTTON removal of the back panel. Wow. The power management center will spend an hour learning your system and setting up a fan management plan that keeps the system cool and quiet!
Cons: Drive installation could have been tool-less but instead was like putting in drives in the 1990's. I knocked my review down by 2 eggs. The front panel did not work except for the power button. After getting a runabout for a week the support said he did not know why it didn't work and sent me another one. This one went from having the F-Panel 8 pin plug to the older 5 or 6 pin individual plugs. Tried to insert the USB3 connector and found that 4 of the holes still had plastic in them from the manufacturing process. Very, very disappointed in the quality and support considering I spent almost $200 for the case.
Overall Review: Cable management is built into this case. I would be hard pressed to recommend this case to anyone.
