HEC 6BRBBB Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

3 out of 5 eggs What the "HEC" ! 09/14/2010

This review is from: HEC 6BRBBB Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Free Shipping,a promo code discount,and mercifully I did not pay full price.

Cons: During the installation it became apparent this case is not what it appeared to be. Other reviews stated "thin" and "flimsy" material. That in of it's self is not a deal breaker but their descriptions are understated.
Side panels do not go on well, hole alignment is poor on both sides as well as on PSU mounting holes, could only get three.
Front bezel does not "snap on", kind of loose and seems inferior enough to have a "short" life. This is a problem because the power and reset buttons are part of the bezel they are not on the case frame.
Even with a micro atx mobo and Amd cpu with stock cooler I cannot mount a fan on top of case. Speaking of which is yet another cheaply made and fittingly applied crown on what is truly a poorly made case.
All foam filters cannot be easily removed for cleaning with out bending back tabs on perforated covers,on top and front,or removing PSU to get at bottom filter.
Some times you just can't tell until you have it in your hands.

Other Thoughts: The screwless installation is good as is the ventilation.
I thought I would like the black inside. Turns out (for me) it's to dark to work in with out a good light.
I planned on using this case for a budget general purpose backup PC and to that end I succeeded.
While mostly disappointed I will say this case is not bad looking and is not without some good features like long wires, e-sata,smooth edges and plenty of expansion slots.

My HEC 6BRBBB's fate is to spend time on the workbench where it will be introduced to my die grinder and various cutting tools, destined to become an ongoing experiment.

Three eggs is generous.
