Pros: Tool-less drive installation that actually works. Each tray is also properly sized to attach a 2.5" drive. Enough space behind the motherboard tray to run cables. Power supply sits atop a vent, which helps with PSU temperature. Not silent, but very quiet.
Cons: The plastic drive trays feel a little flimsy, but that's probably just because they are very flexible. They can be a pain to insert into the case when they're empty, which really isn't a problem.
Adding additional fans requires special hardware. NZXT doesn't seem to provide a sufficient number of the strange, machine-screw looking things needed to attach two additional fans. I didn't contact support -- they might've sent more if I asked.
Other Thoughts: The front USB header is USB 3.0, and it cannot attach to older USB 2.0 headers on older motherboards.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Tool-free disk install was pretty good. Motherboard tray standoff holes are labelled for different board sizes. Comes with a neat tool to screw in standoffs. Just enough (barely enough, really) space behind the mobo tray to fit PSU cables. Looks nice!
Cons: Not a whole lot to say here -- front USB is 3.0 only, so you need to have a USB 3.0 header on your board.
Other Thoughts: It took me a while to decide on how to install the PSU in this case. Looking at the instructions, it really seemed like I was supposed to install the PSU upside-down (with the fan pointing downward, at the floor of the case). Turns out, there's venting on the bottom to enable precisely this. I'm not still not convinced I did it correctly, but everything is operating smoothly, including PSU temps.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Modular. Fits into my specific Antec case (beware -- does not fit most non-Antec cases). Runs pretty cool.
Cons: None. Still kicking after almost a yaer
Other Thoughts: Some parts are not modular. Leads to a few extra wires stashed at the bottom of my case.READ FULL REVIEW
