Classic Case

Pros: I've used quite a few of the beige ones for several years at my business. They are very sturdy with a simple functional design. Truly a classic case in my opinion.

Cons: Would love to have some of these cases in black but I haven't seen them in stock for a long time.

Other Thoughts: If you can find one, grab it, you won't regret it.

Fantastic case

Pros: Build quality; this thing is built like a tank! It has rolled and/or filed edges, and simply looks great.

Cons: Thin paint scratches easily on the creases, loud stock fan.

Other Thoughts: I'd happily buy another for my next build.

great, sturdy case

Pros: Great-lookin case resembling old-school Antec/Chieftec designs. It has great mounting options that allow for removable opticals and harddrives. Also has a 120mm fan rear exaust fan as well as the space to add a 80mm to kool the HDs that makes for effective cooling.

Cons: it's built like a tank, but weighs like one as a result!

Other Thoughts: i'd reccomend swapping out the 120mm fan for a Scythe 4710KL-04W-B19-VB2 120mm Case Fan if you wanna keep those Db's down.

Decent Case

Pros: -Solid construction.
-Beautifully designed door (easy to open/remove, snaps shut.
-Everything goes together very easily - holes line up perfectly, nice drive bay setup, HDD case very nicely designed, etc.
-I really like the space for 2 80mm fans right behind the HDD cage.
-Plenty of screws, rails, etc.

Cons: -WATCH THE POWER BUTTON! Mine sticks, and I didn't notice it at first. I thought it was a memory issue as the system would start booting and then power down after a few seconds. The button is very poorly designed.
-Cheaply designed USB/Firewire port on front - as mentioned by many here.
-PSU mounts with 4 screws - no support anywhere else - so it kind of slopes down a tad. could use better support toward the front of the PSU. Not a big deal.
-Absolutely zero documentation - but I didn't need that. A 1st time builder might.

Other Thoughts: Overall a very decent case. I'd buy it again. For the price, I like it. Just be aware that the power button is designed in such a way as it may stick down and cause boot failures unless you press it a certain way (press on the left side of the button).

For 1st time builders... those plastic/steel thingies attached to the floor are your drive rails. They pop right out and screw into you optical (or whatever) drives.

Solid Case

Pros: Solid, heavy duty case. Easy open side panel. Quiet 120mm rear fan. Room for two 80mm fans in front.

Cons: No removable motherboard tray. USB/Firewire port in front are mounter flimsy and feel like they are going to break off. Heavy, but only a problem if you move it around a lot.

ok, but not great

Pros: good price, sturdy case. Comes with a lock and two keys for those that care about security. Has a latch so the side can be opened and closed without a screwdriver.

Cons: The position of the hard drives conflicted a bit with the motherboard cables, which would I would pass off as par for course except this case is huge so I expected to have more room. Rear fan is quiet when the side is off, but when the side is on there's suction or something that makes it much nosier. I think it's just bad acoustics in the case or something of that nature. I solved the problem by putting in a quieter fan, but putting some cloth in the case might have the same effect. Also installing a floppy requires dismantling the front

Other Thoughts: A good case, but not a great case. I have no regrets but if I were to buy another I'd get something else.

Best Case in My Experience

Pros: This case is built like a tank which is great for noise dampening. Thick steel, high quality plastic on the front, and REAL rubber feet. Def not for the lan addict. Removable hard drive and 3.5" bay, and drive rail system make installation very easy. Airflow is great with 2 80mm stealth fans in the front and 1 120mm stealth fan in the rear. Ive had several cases and you will NOT find a better case for the money I promise you.

Cons: Very hard to complain. It could stand to be a couple of inches longer as my vid card came close to my hard drives.

Other Thoughts: Very well thought out case. Well designed for strenght and airflow. O did I mention dead sexy black design and rubber feet. Really whats so hard about rubber feet these days?

Love this case

Pros: This case has exceptional room and cooling. Has everything I need and more! Definantly a must buy for someone looking for functionality and style without all those silly LEDs and flimsy plastic frames.

Cons: The Hard drive rack is a lil confusing on how to reinsert it to the case and it is a little bit heavy but that is just minor compared to all the pros.
