Great overall case looks sharp

Pros: Was easy to install Hard drives and SSD drives and the motherboard was easy to put in

Cons: The USB 3.0 that comes with it is just a passthrough from a USB 3.0 in the back to the front not actually another 3.0 port

Overall Review: other then that it's a great case easy to setup and use love Thermaltake case designs

Ngggh.. It's okay

Pros: Cheap, assuming you will buy it online
Spaceous, good for airflow
Works most, if not all needs since it's a mid-range tower. Has plenty of options.

Cons: Everything easily snaps off inside since they are made with plastic.
Not a lot of tool-less snaps for if you need more drives.
MOBO can feel loose, even after screwing it in
The usb 3.0 support is mostly a lie.
Attracts dust like a dog in a junkyard

Overall Review: So it's been 5 years since I first got this, so I'll explain my points in detail here:

The USB 3.0 on the front is just a two-sided usb 3.0 cord, which requires an adapter. Nowhere is that mentioned on the box. That was kind of a pain to see after I had begun to put together my brand new computer all those years ago. I managed now, by simply having a MOBO with 8 usb ports.

The red color contrasting with the red is what drove me to this case. Drove me enough that I was willing to carry the entire case to-and-fro on a 2-hour bike ride to own it. (Perhaps that's a bit overzealous to mention)

At first the case was fine. Airflow was instantly better, cord flow was easy to manage, and I felt no buyers remorse on it.However as the months went on, the case began to get dusty, and frequently as well. It came down to cleaning it monthly, until the day my GPU didn't work.

So it's still standing after 5 years. But reflecting on that time, I wouldn't say the experience was worthwhile. It was a pain in the buttocks that tought me quite a great deal.

This is not a long-life case and it's more of a hold-over case. I've had this thing for 5 years now and while it does the job, I know for the price I paid ($200 at a local store) I can certainly do better in hindsight. However it's not as bad as you may think either. I'm only giving a scaving, critical review of this since it doesn't fit my needs.

If you don't mind the cons it has, this certainly isn't the worst option. But look elsewhere before you decide on this one.

Thermaltake Commander MS-I Epic Edition Black / Red SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: red! not alot of cases in my favorite color in this price range that look this great the vents are nice too its durable beautiful has a good amount of space and the window is sexy

Cons: the screwless locks are a bit of a joke and dont allways wanna hold the drives in and can snap easy )-= i have broken about 2 also it does have ssd support but only for one at the bottom so buy a 3.5-2.5 bracket kit if you plan to use more then one also the top vents are good however i have to offset one of the fans due to my ram sticks

Overall Review: a bigger window!

Good Case for what you spend

Pros: Its great looking seems to be a decent quality case. Glad it doesn't come with the led fan. Was able to get creative with fan placement.

Cons: The fan mounts they claim to have isn't 100% accurate the top mount fan is not able to be used because it will hit the ram in the slots with a atx Motherboard but with a little creativity was able to make the other slot next to it work. Not much room for cable management. Also the led lights don't work but I'm not worried about the leds Also the case screw holes for the back panel, and gpu slots are trash they striped out and thats why it lost an egg if it wasn't for the case screw holes stripping out the first use it would have been a 5 egg case for me.

Overall Review: The only thing i would change is the room between the top mounted fan, and a bit more room behind the back panel for cable management.

Dear Customer,
This chassis come with one 120mm rear exhaust fan. It's been stated on specifications page. We did not say that is "Blue LED" fan.

Looks great but...

Pros: love the looks and the side panel window

Cons: the power button on the front of the case is super flimsy
there was no header for my usb 2.0...
and the usb 3 is just a plug not a header, why they did this I have no clue. It's not false advertisement but it's pretty close because most people are going to think it's a header. that's actually why I bought this when browsing part picker for a case.
Also because of that you have to buy an adapter for the usb 3 to work inside the case.

Overall Review: I would not recommend this at all, I now have a 55$ paper weight sitting around and I have to browse for a good case instead of this one.
Next time Thermaltake put actual headers on the usb. and if they were going to do it the way they did it should have been advertised as such
