Pros: This was the only reasonably priced case with a horizontal layout. The other horizontal cases were more of test benches. With that said, this case is set up to be "semi-test-benchy" with things like hard drive hotswapping, but it's not annoying and everything feels firm. The case also comes with ...
Cons: Nothing really. I had a little bit of trouble mounting my hard drive to the tray, but that was an extra 3 minutes of work for a case that I plan on having for the next 5 years.
"Cool" is the best way to describe the HAF XB EVO. And it does.

Summary: I have had a lot of cases over the years but this is the most versatile and well designed yet. I would strongly recommend it to a friend.
Pros: The designer of this case has obviously put machines together and knows what is needed. The case feels sturdy and has almost all thumb screws throughout and snap in hard drive rails. There are cable tie points embedded in the metal in key places. Also, adequate extra hardware was supplied to incl...
Cons: At 16 x 17 inches, plus room needed for air flow, it definitely takes up some real estate.
Excerpt: You can pack your full sized ATX board and all your gear inside this case and still move it around anywhere easily, or just place it in minimal amount of floor space. I've built many computers but this case is the best one yet.
Summary: -10/10 WILL buy again when I am rebuilding my wife's PC, they are stackable so that will be cool too -I hope they never stop making them
Pros: -Very attractive case -Easy to clean -Stays VERY cool -Liftable motherboard tray makes wire management a breeze -Set up like a test bench so the weight of the GPU and CPU cooler weight is spread out better -You can actually SEE the cool looking side of the GPU -The handles make it easy to move
Cons: -If you put a fan into every available space it can be a bit loud -The LED on power button is a little too bright and sometimes it likes to blind my right eye, I dimmed it with matte clear acrylic
Pros: -Lots of room -looks awesome -lots of space for fans (I run all 6 slots) -The easy install / swap locks on the 5.25" bays are SUPER easy to use. -Although other say the hot swap bay kills their drives, i have the 2 80mm exhaust fans on the bottom level and my HDD never goes above 25C, so I'm not ...
Cons: - The hot swap bays are very close to the power supply, so if you are like me and went all the way to a 7.1" PSU, the cords are VERY close to the drive bays which isn't fun to deal with. It does work, just annoying to install. -The manual isn't very good, but it's a case, so you can figure it out...
Summary: -Personally, I can't get a very pleasing cable management setup. -Power lights are very bright. Buttons are recessed enough to prevent anything accidental (especially the reset switch) -Another model of this case includes internal mounts for additional 3.5" drives, which makes more sense than...
Pros: -Horizontal orientation eliminates gpu sag -Immense airflow keeps cpu/ram/chipset cool -Slide-off panels are sturdy, but easy to take off, making building/tweaking very easy. They don't rattle around at all. -Standard rack-space width, if you're into that.
Cons: -Not great airflow on gpu side (I'm running a gtx780, so it might just be that) -Feeding power/sata cables from the bottom is a little annoying -Additional handles on the bottom would make a little more sense
