Most Favorable Review

Great Case - even for noobs like me!

Phanteks Eclipse P400S PH-EC416PSTG_WT Silent Edition Glacier White Tempered Glass/Steel RGB ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Phanteks Eclipse P400S PH-EC416PSTG_WT Silent Edition Glacier White Tempered Glass/Steel RGB ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: - Tempered Glass looks great, no scratches or blemishes yet. - Cable Management was a breeze. Velcro straps help tie everything down, and multiple cutouts allow for easy access to the mobo. - RGB. I'm a fan. Front panel RGB is controlled by a button in the front I/O, and includes two RGB LED strips to be used as you see fit. - Clean white is beautiful, I love the visual synergy with my components. - PSU shroud is great, hides what needs hiding. - Plenty of space to work in, fits large GPU with no problem. - The option to remove the top panels (magnetic square panels) to allow more airflow is nifty, and useful.

Cons: MY only con has been the space inside the front panel and using a CPU AIO cooler. I saw one other review mention this, and without manually unscrewing, moving, drilling and reattaching the HDD bays, a 360mm AIO radiator will displace the HDD bays. The product page indicates that there is space for a 360mm radiator at the front of the case. This looks like it will work because the section of the PSU shroud is actually removable there. But removing that section leaves ridges around the edges that impede the cooler fitting. Another brand of AIO may be slim enough to fit, i'm not sure. I thought I may be able to attach it to the top panel as an alternative but I have a full ATX mobo which means that there isn't enough space for the cooler to attach to the top. So out came the dremel, and I made it fit! This may not be a Con depending on your components, but if you plan to use a 360mm radiator then it may not actually fit out of the box.

Overall Review: Some reviews seem to have mentioned the poor airflow due to the solid front panel, but I have not experienced that. I have set up my CPU cooler (230 CFM) so that the radiator fans work to draw air in through the two small front apertures, but this might not work for everyone. This is the first case I've ever bought for the first PC I've ever built, and I would recommend it to anyone, anytime. The cable management was fun for a noob like me who likes it neat (having a fully modular PSU helped!), and I didn't have to resort to tons of cable ties either. I use a full-ATX Gigabyte Z370 motherboard, an RTX 2080, a 500gb M.2 SSD (saves on cables!), a 3tb HDD ( which fits thanks to dremel...) and a DeepCool Captain 360EX which was the only troublesome part of me using this case. Overall, I am stoked to have this case. It looks sharp and clean, the RGB is flattering not garish and it was easy to work in. I even got it at $79.99 with a $10 rebate!

Good Experience, no problems with seller.

This item arrived a little later than expected due to Hurricane Michael causing local damage and delaying delivery. The item arrived intact, still within an acceptable time-frame, and I had no other issues. Great seller.

Great customer service, poor item description.

I purchased a Wireless Samsung Blu-Ray player and received a Wired Samsung Blu-Ray player with a completely different product code. VIP Outlet were quick to refund me my purchase price once they received the item. They sent a pre-paid shipping label and were prompt in their refund. I'm obviously disappointed at not getting the item I wanted, but am happy with the customer service a received from this seller. I would buy from them again, but unfortunately not without verifying their item listings.

No problems.

Great chair, and consequently no reason to contact the seller. Shipping was fast and package came undamaged and intact. Confirmation email was also prompt. Overall an ideal buying experience in that it was fast, easy, and got me my item while being completely painless.
