Pros: Works! No problems so far.
Can't expect a lot for the price, but it does come with some decent overclocking features.
Cons: None so far, just read the specs to make sure you know what you're buying (CPU wattage limitation for example).
Overall Review: I didn't even try the onboard video, so I can't confirm others problems with it. Works great with my 9800GT though.
Pros: This case looks great. Has great ventilation with lots of places for fans, even on the bottom of the case. Front panel connections are plenty long. Case is painted inside and out. Bottom mounted PSU has it's own intake and filter (unless mounted "upside down" which IS an option if you need that extra slack in the cables).
Cons: Pretty thin metal, but that's expected for the price. Quick mounts for the drives aren't great, and only secure the one side. I ended up just using screws.
Doesn't come with thumb screws.
Only comes with one fan, although this is pretty common (case will take at least 5 or 6 120mm fans)
CPU cooler size height limitation is 160mm (6.3"). This isn't a problem for me since I am still using a stock heatsink, but you have been warned if you have a large cooler.
Overall Review: I really don't know what people are complaining about with removing the front panel, all you have to do is pull it off. It has metal retaining clips, so they are designed for semi-repetitive use.
This is a pretty sturdy case for the price range and fit my needs perfectly. I needed a clean looking case, that still had a "gamer" appeal, for my personal media center build. The LED fan glaring through the little window is a bit annoying for this purpose, but that's an easy enough fix.
All in all, I am very satisfied with this case, and wouldn't hesitate to buy again!
