Pros: Disclaimer, I've always bought simple, cheap cases previously and this is my first step up to a nice chassis. That being said, I'm in love. I can't imagine anything else I would want or need. It looks simple, so if you're going for flashy I can understand choosing something else, but the number o...
Cons: The only con, and it doesn't bother me at all but possibly others, is that its rather large for a mid tower.
Summary: My previous case was an Antec 900. For my new build I wanted a more sleek and professional-looking case, and with the R4 I have found exactly what I was looking for.
Pros: There are so many fantastic things about this case: - Spacious (plenty of room for my after-market cooler) - Cable management holes are excellently placed - Filters on all air intakes to help keep the inside free of dust - Very quiet stock fans, and the case itself seems to suppress noise - Exter...
Cons: - The swinging front panel does not stay open. I have my tower close to the wall so I can only open the panel about 110 degrees. At this angle the panel swings back shut. I need to prop it to keep it open - My PSU only came with 90 degree SATA power cables, and the angle is not compatible with SS...
Summary: This case is a beast. If you are looking for a more compact case, this is NOT it! It's Big, solid, and has tons of mounting options. Features easy access and can hold a lot of components. Bottom mount for PSU, which I like for wiring purposes and getting the PSU heat out the back quickly.
It's good that you check out multiple cases and compare them ...

Summary: Get this case. No seriously, stop browsing, get this case. It's good that you check out multiple cases and compare them to make sure everything fits and is quality...but this is the best case i've ever bought, and i've built and tinkered with computers my whole life.
Summary: Be sides the packing I can't find much wrong with the case. The top of the case is caved in a bit and can be pushed up, but I didn't want to send it back and wait. I can't blame anyone but FedEx, or the packaging ( I'll go with FedEx). Never the less it's a great case.
Pros: Air flow Cable management Room etc etc
Cons: The two fans it comes with are awesome. I really think at this price they should include 3. I purchased another one, Fractal of course, and it's quiet and super cool, but at the price I think there should be 3. Just my opinion and being a bit picky.
Summary: Had an NZXT before purchasing this case. Things started falling apart so decided to go with something a bit more sleek. All in all transferring the components from my previous case to this one went smooth. A lot of convenient features on this one.
Summary: Case has been very quiet since I got it. In a typical room, Only perhaps the rear fan is audible at very low volume, or if I were to press my ear up to the side of the case can I hear the HDD or the fans inside. Case has a heavy, durable build, and good dust filters.
Pros: -Quiet. -Good dust filters. -Good design.
Cons: -Drive cage might need removal to install bigger video cards. -A bit on the heavy side.
