Summary: Really good case for the price with lots of room and plenty of places for fans, just wish the shipping companies were a little more careful. Could have sent it back but wasn't worth the hassle.
Pros: -Enough room to put just about every video card if you do the cable management right, I recommend getting a modular power supply so no cables will be in the way, or just put them in the drive bays at the front. Not really much space in the side panels to put big cables like molex, the 24 pin from my xfx psu was pretty much impossible to fit. I would get a PSU with flat cables like the corsair RM series.
Cons: -Came bent and wobbles easily when on a hard surface, One thumb screw was bent and hard to put in.The metal on the back where the IO shield goes was oddly shaped and bent and I couldnt get it on no matter how hard I tried so now I have no IO shield on the back. Could be blamed on the shipping company though cause the metal is pretty strong and not flimsy.
Summary: It's inexpensive, so not surprisingly, it's not super strong. It's made from thin metal and lacks some of the internal structure you'd see in a more rugged case. That said, the fit and finish is nice, it has a nice clean look to it, and it is very flexible and easy to use with an open interior and plenty of bays. It also comes with nice rails for quick and easy mounting of hard drives (no screws needed!). Very pleased with the case.
Summary: Needed a mid-sized case for a new build and after lots of research selected this one. USB3 connectors were a requirement and this case provides four -- two front, two rear. I would have preferred the front USB/audio connectors to be at the bottom of the case, but that's minor. I like the clean looks of the case, and both side panels remove easily to provide full access to interior. Cable management is OK.
Summary: So, I needed an inexpensive smallish cases to build a small cluster. I ordered two these to try. My build is an ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0 (get the non-LE one if you want USB 3.0 on the front), AMD FX-8350, EVGA GTX 610, and an Antec Khuler 650. Unfortunately, the case cannot accommodate both the liquid cooler and the top 120mm fan. There is not enough clearance between the circulation hoses on the top of the cool and the fan when installed.
Summary: It's a decent case, but does feel quite cheap. That being said, it's also roomy, and the hard drive and optical drive bays are very nice. The Antec Three Hundred Two case feels much sturdier and is nicer.
Summary: Had to get another case because I didn't realize that this case did not fix larger video cards. Overall the case is great value. I threw all the fans on my old case into this one and ended up using it to replace my old case instead of building my new PC. Worth the money and a nice upgrade. Easy to work with. Nice black finish on the inside as well.
Summary: This is a decent case for the low price; however, it's so small and it's rather hard to put everything inside the case neatly, making cable management pretty difficult. I'll definitely be upgrading to a bigger case sometime later in the year.
First build, and this is a great case to start with...

Summary: This is my first case and build and this case makes it easier than you could ever imagine... Although I haven't experienced other cases, here is what I have for it so far. Pros: SUPER Ventilated... Places for fans all over, and it's open everywhere for air flow Tool-less... All I had to use was a screw driver... Everything else is either a clip or thumbscrews... Buttons are great, and so are the USB and Audio jacks.
Summary: This is an awesome case for the money, It's nice simple and has all the basics. It's a great size, not to big or small. The case comes with great fans, ability to add 1 120mm fan on the front. I wish this case had better cable management solutions though.
