Summary: some users have reported the side panels being 'weak' or 'hard to put on' and the power button getting stuck - I've had this case for a couple of months and have had neither of those problems. Despite the cons I've listed, it's still a five-egg product -- it's just a really good case.
Pros: -roomy, well designed midsize case -sturdy, very intelligently laid out -comes with three fans -fan speed switch is brilliant
Cons: -'triangular' design of the top and front makes it harder to work on and adds some unnecessary bulk -doesn't fit 280mm radiators, only up to 240mm -gloss finish (fingerprint hell)
Summary: I chose this case because it looked nice without being too flashy. I really don't like cases that are lit up like Christmas trees. The power button is on the top left side, which makes it a little awkward if the PC is up high and your sitting to the right of it, but no big deal.
Pros: Sleek design and super quiet, I can barley tell that it's on! Lots of additional space for fans if needed.
Cons: As others have noted the weakest part is the door. It takes a bit too much pressure to open and close it, luckily I don't need to open it often. Some have said the power button gets stuck easily, but I think this can be avoided by not pressing too hard. It's very sensitive and doesn't have to be ...
Pros: The case has a nice finish, reminiscent of my Antech Vento. It almost appears as if it was a paint job on a car. Yes it is only colored plastic but its very good. The case is roomy inside, no problems fitting my ATX mobo, 2x HDD's, 1x SSD, optical drive, Corsair H110iGTX, and a 980Ti. Inexpensive.
Cons: A little bit flimsy BUT you are getting a heck of a deal at this price point.
Summary: For the price NZXT has created the best case for the cost. This case was well thought out for buyer interface with style and functionality in mind. However a lack of attention to detail has made the case fall short of the mark, but if NZXT made a few changes the whole case would rock the world just...
Summary: Solid case all around. Its quite big for the class it is. The looks are stunning for a red black themed build, ties together my theme perfectly. Will be keeping this case as long as it stays together, i do believe ill be making red and black builds for life anyways.
Pros: >Good Layout >Lots of space internally >Lots of cable management space >Front door closes making it look sleeker >Side panel mesh near the gpu (very handy with a gpu that side vents) >Lots of space to add more fans
Cons: >My side panel rattles (the one with the window) NZXT was super fast in verifying and shipping me a replacement panel. Because of this no star has been taken off.
Did my first gaming PC build and I gotta say this is my best case choice ever!

Summary: I have heard of NZXT Phantom case for a long time and have always wanted to own one, but I just couldn't find the need. Recently, my Dell XPS 8500 got overheated and I decided to go for a case upgrade which, I hope, would solve the problem.
Summary: I finally just replaced this with something a bit bigger and fancier, but for ~100 bucks, this 410 is an all around good case with good value. Aside from my sticky power button, mine is still in perfect condition. Nothing has broken, fallen off or failed. Careful with the power button though. ;-)
Pros: It's a nice looking case, easy to work in. There is plenty of space and a decent amount of cable management in the back. The tool-free design works pretty well. My Zalman 9900MAX air cooler had plenty of clearance and the overall airflow of the case was pretty good with just the fans it came with...
Cons: --The power button is poorly designed. Mine started getting stuck in after about 3 months of use, and I don't shut down very often. It sticks because it was designed as a diamond shape and the corner gets wedged when pressed a bit too far, which is quite easy to do. --The front fans aren't filter...
