  • Summary: I bought this $40 during the winter holidays. I used this as a part of my first PC build for gaming and everything fits spaciously.
  • Pros: - Nice matte finish, - Handlebar makes it easier to carry, - I/O at the top
  • Cons: - The corners at the back need to be unscrewed before sliding out side panels., - Unlike the many unboxing videos I watched, the side panels were actually quite difficult to remove. I had to pry with a screwdriver., - Only comes with two 200 mm fans. There's room for a 120 mm fan at the back but it's not included.

  • Summary: The moment I saw this case I was in love. It's beautiful. I can't stop touching it, it's so soft. What's wrong with me? Anyway, it looks great, the handle makes transportation easy. I don't mind needing to remove the back top and bottom curvy things in the back to get the panels off. However the panels themselves are a pain in the butt to remove. No handle or grove or anything to leverage them off. Seriously a pain.
  • Pros: Great, sleek look. Handle. Great texture.
  • Cons: Side panels are on tight, difficult to get off.

  • Summary: purchased for a gaming pc and this is a Terrible case, terrible design, the sides of this case are a nightmare to remove, and even worse to put back on (had to damage the case to get off, the cheap plastic accent pieces that go on top and bottom of back are cheap and don't secure properly, very big and clunky case. stupid blue led light that doesn't look right on the case at all, one of my worst purchase on ncix.
  • Pros: Nothing, it stinks, don't buy it, you have been warned
  • Cons: everything, terrible case, sides are a nightmare, feels cheap... garbage, garbage, looks ugly, clunky, cheap rubberized coating

  • Summary: The chassis is very difficult to install and remove the side panels, not sure about anyone else but I received mine damaged with a slight twist in the entire structure? Looks good, does the job.. overall, not impressed at all with 15+ years experience building high end rigs, supposedly a 110$ case? LOL! Go Antec!!!!
  • Pros: The interior is clean, the design is semi semi.
  • Cons: Not much time or effort put into the durability nor simplicity of the design.

  • Summary: I got it on sale, and it was worth the $80~ish I paid. Again, blue power LED, terrible side panels and the location of the tool-less drive bays are my main problems. I'm being forced to use a Molex to Sata Power to power one of my two drives, because there isn't enough room for the normal 2-4 Sata Power connectors on one cable here. With that said though, I would still buy it again, just order a couple of Sata Power extenders/Sata Power to Molex.
  • Pros: Good looking, Red LEDS go well with the case, Included fans work quite well, Tool-less drive bays worked okay, Carrying handle isn't flimsy in the slightest; quite the opposite, the handle is very sturdy and very secure despite how it may look. The Bitfenix S2 is a neat addition.
  • Cons: The bright blue power LED is annoying. Very annoying. Side panels are a right pain to get on and off, mine might be warped but they wont go on fully without a lot of force. The tool-less drive bays are great, but they are way too close to the side panels.

Elegantes Gehäuse

  • Summary: Hebt sich durch interessantes Design von den üblichen Quadern deutlich ab. Ist zwar ein wenig umständlich die Seitenteile abzunehmen, aber wer einen PC nicht täglich auseinanderschraubt hat ein elegantes Gehäuse. Verarbeitung und Lieferumfang sind Spitze.
