Looks good, one bad rivet, sharp handles. Still love it.

Summary: Only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is because a rivet missed the motherboard mount, so it was crooked. I only found this out after mounting everything in the case and it wouldn't line up. I didn't want to send it back, so I drilled through the rivet and used a screw, all better. The other issue is, I bought this to make a hackintosh instead of buying a Mac trash can. My plan was, and is, to haul it around. But be warned the edges on the handles are VERY sharp.
Summary: great case, great price. the "legs" and "handles" on bottom, and top of the case are plastic, and a bit bouncy (seems like the only negative aspect of it). The inside of the case seems very well made, and the build was very easy. had plenty of space for 2 "3 1/2" drives, optical drive, and 2 SSDs, in addition to a single fan water cooler, and a large graphics card.
Summary: Very good case, plenty of expansion room. Ample room for multiple HDDs and efficient cooling. Easy to transport. The only thing I do not like is, the handles are made of a soft plastic material, I do not recommend carrying the case by the handles.
Summary: Mini ITX boards have limited fan power jumpers, but there isn't an adapter for direct PSU power
Pros: Nice looking case, lots of options for 2.5" drives, lots of rack space for 3.5" drives.
Cons: Kind of big for a Mini ITX case and they have a microATX version but the. So this should be a case for powerful components... it has the "room" but the PSU bay is just too small for some larger ATX PSUs and they wires will interfere with the lower harddrive rack, once you remove it there is nothing holding the upper rack, which doesn't matter because since the rack is in the center of the case large GPUs will interfere with that as well.
Summary: While it is a Mini-ITX case, mine has turned out pretty sweet. The only downside that I could find was that there was no cover for the power supply sides. While some people love to display the stickers on their prized power supply because they over paid for a brand name when they should have invested in more RAM, an SSD, better CPU or just about anything on a PC other than a power supply, I do not care and ended up cutting a piece of Plexiglas and painting it white in...
Summary: I installed a PICO PSU for my mini-ITX board, so I did not have to install traditional PSU to install. As such, I cannot review that aspect of using this case.
Pros: First, looks. Assuming you want a green case (you DID notice this was greener than Kermit's whole family, right?), this one is fantastic. The paint is nice, and scratch-resistant enough to hold up after I dropped the side panel on a wood floor during initial setup (whoops!).
Cons: The thumb screws for the PCI slots in the back are a bit cumbersome. Two slots, three thumb screws.
Summary: Case fans up to 140mm (rear), 2 x 120mm (top), 2 x 120mm (front) or 200mm or 230mm. The case itself it very sturdy and doesn't feel like cheap material which is good. Overall, it's an amazing case and I would definitely recommend anyone who is looking for a small case with a lot of internal space to pick one up.
Pros: White color, very spacious for a mini-ITX case and great cooling.
Summary: Measure your power supply carefully. I really like the power supply that I purchased for this system build- but- it is just a fraction longer than I thought it would be and I was forced to come up with some genius manipulations to make it fit in this case. There is otherwise plenty of room in this case for a mini ITX. Don't listen to the haters. This case is plenty durable. It is also fun, quiet, stylish and affordable. I love it!
