Summary: I bought this tower case partly because of the price and partly because of the Cooler Master name. Cooler Master tower cases are consistently of better than average quality. I know they have low-end and high-end cases so I didn't really expect top-of-the-line quality for this price. The design is pretty straight-forward. There's a good amount of space for a mid-size towel case.
Summary: Bought this four month ago for about $30 as the casing to my mid-range gaming pc. Everything fit, though the wire management was a bit clumsy and tight. I'm only running one video card, stock number of fans, and 8gigs of ram. It suits my needs as a mid-range build, but anyone looking for a beefier build with more hardware inside might want to upgrade to a full tower. Great buy if it's what you need though.
Summary: The case is easy to use, and doesn't contain the sharp edges that most sadistic case designers engineer into the tighter spots of the case. It looks decent, has ample room for expansion and cooling, and doesn't weigh much. The front ports are useful, the tolerances all meet standards, and the thumb-screw takedown is a nice touch. That's the good news. The bad news is that, as multiple other reviews state, you may find the included power supply inadequate.
Nice, functional and affordable case but somewhat noisy

Summary: Front panel generates unpleasant low frequency vibration noise coming from 3.5" HDD. I have not tried to use different bay yet. There are only two mounting screws per HDD. On the other side, toward front panel, the mounting bracket has metal bent to hold the drive in place. Other than vibration problem I am quite satisfied with this product. If I knew about noise issue I would have probably looked at higher quality case.
Summary: This is the first case I haven't bled inside. It's got a lot going for it. My build was the easiest I've ever done. It was a computer for the 'rents. Micro-ATX, onboard everything, i3 CPU. Clearly I'm not testing the cooling properties of this case but still feel I had a good experience. Price was the single determining factor for this purchase but this product deserves a good review. Forty Dollars. It's a top-mounted PSU. Rear fan blows out.
Summary: For one, the inside of the case is a real eyesore. The picture tells you that it's a vanilla white which I really don't get.. A black case, clear glass, and vanilla white metal? Doesn't really make sense. When I got it, I spray painted it black right away, no questions asked. But besides that, it's an alright case.
Summary: Let me get this out of the way first: for less than $50, you will not find a better case. This is a nice, roomy case for its size. I was surprised to find a case with a side window for such a low cost. If lights are your thing, though, you'll have to add them yourself. Also, if you like loads of fans, you will want to look elsewhere, as it comes stocked with one and has room for one 120mm fan on the side panel.

Summary: PROS Outstanding value at less than 40 clams, delivered. Generally good fit and finish. Front and rear panels look especially good for an economy case. Three-quarters size externally, but lots of room, most of it usable! Well thought out design from an airflow standpoint. Adding a pair of 4-wire 120MM fans (Cooler Master BladeMaster 120mm PWM High Air Flow Silent Case Fan R4-BMBS-2PK-R0) helps the drives (front fan) and Sapphire Radeon HD-6770 video board (side fan) run...
Summary: For an under $50 case, you can't do much better. Pros: Ample work room for assembly Accommodates a variety of motherboard sizes Side facing HD rack Didn't have to pay for a crappy PSU Cons: Not toolless PSU is top mounted (old school style) Front fan is somewhat obstructed Running an Intel Core i5-2500K Processor 3.3GHz 6 MB Cache Socket LGA1155 on an ASUS P8P67 LE <REV 3.0> LGA 1155 SATA 6Gbps and USB 3.0 Supported Intel P67 DDR3 2200 ATX Motherboard with a Corsair...
Summary: I have purchased many cases over the years and I have to say that I really, really like this one! While being lightweight; it is very sturdy! Instead of using metal rails behind the mobo this case uses a solid metal plate while keeping the strength of the case in great condition and making it lightweight at the same time! I only wish it had a firewire connector connected to the front of the case for video capture and editing!
