Most Favorable Review

Good looking and lighweight, but kind of a pain to build in.

Pros: I give it four eggs in consideration of its value, as it was under $50 when I purchased it, and it is a well-built case. The fit and finish were great on mine, and the ventilation on the front, back and top are excellent. The windows are a nice touch, especially if the case will be in view. Very easy to disassemble for building. Came with lots of screws and zip ties for builders and cable running.

Cons: A few bothersome things that warranted taking away an egg, but not more, are things that result from preference, I think, and a little from design. The windows are almost the entire height of the case, so you'll see the HDDs and SDDs you have installed in there as well as the PSU and, and it is relatively difficult to hide a lot of the cables you'll be using. Building is kind of a pain if you're going to have a drive in the 5.25 bay, (which was one of the main draws of this case as opposed to other cube-styled ones that have no external bays), as it extends over the space where a GPU will be located, and if your GPU has power plugs that go into the top of the card, as opposed to the rear, its a REALLY tight fit; order a right angle adapter if you have top-mounted power plugs on your gpu. If you want to use a PSU that has the cables coming out of the left side of front of the unit (fan faces down in this case), you're going to have a bad time, as the HDD case is right in front of it. A right side-cabled PSU (facing down) will be much more manageable.

Overall Review: Given the size of the case, its hard to say how to make things fit better, and that's why I only took off one egg; I wish there was a better diagram of the layout available before I made the purchase as I may have made a different decision, but overall its a good little cube case for under $50.
