As good as expected
Pros: Great case like I knew it'd be. I built my last box almost 5 years ago in what evolved to this case. Everything fits, it has excellent air flow, and there's plenty of room to work.
Cons: I'd like to have more than two front usb ports, but that's not even close to enough to change my mind.
Overall Review: Price used to be an issue for buying a case like this, but these days, so many cases come with useless windows that put the price at/near the price of this sleek, classy, and conservative model. You won't be disappointed.
Piece of junk
Cons: Wireless doesn't work. If I have it enabled, when I connect my cable modem, it just keeps resetting itself.
Overall Review: Works alright as a wired router, and was cheap enough that I'm not terribly upset, but I'd have bought something better if I'd known this was going to happen. I have to buy a working wireless router now.
Functional and Inexpensive
Pros: Provides additional USB ports and front access to my Mic and Headphone jack. Also provides firewire access, but I don't have firewire hardware. Works without any issues so far, and costs significantly less than other products of a similar nature despite the fact it's aluminum.
Cons: Feels and looks a bit cheap. As others have said, the audio jacks are very tight initially (mine have loosened up to a reasonable level after use).
Overall Review: Make sure you notice that the connections are the internal type; it's not like a usb hub. This was a great solution for me. As much as I'd like to flatly state that it's a great product, it'll have to settle for a great product for its price. If it ever did break, I'd buy another.
Even with price, don't bother.
Pros: None available
Cons: This device cannot start (code 10).
Overall Review: When I read the reviews, I took "doesn't work" to mean that there were problems after it was installed. I can't even get that far. When I install the vista64 drivers, or the chipset drivers from the manufacturer, the device simply will not start.
