Summary: Cons: Taking off the side panels is easy, putting them back on... not so much. Its a pain sometimes. Plenty of space for hard drives, but I had no idea how to use the tool less design :( They're just kind hanging there. The front fan was b**** to put in, nothing will fit there, I had to bend the case to get it inside. Does not come with a back IO port thing, and mine didn't fit, so that was bad.
Summary: This case looks slick, much better than the pictures even show. The included fans run nice and quiet, and do a decent job of keeping my system cool. The blue LED lights are a nice touch, though could be irritating at night if the computer is going in a bedroom. No problems from me, I basically use it as a night light.
Summary: This computer case is very nice, It offers plenty of space and easy to understand instructions. Its not perfect though I some of my complaints are that it did not come with any screws for additional fans also the case is not built of the most sturdy metal. It does come with a nice fan though and has plenty of space for mostly everyone. Unless you have multiple high end GPUs this will likely fit everything you have.
Summary: I bought this to bring life to my old computer. What caught my eye about it is the glossy black exterior, clear window, and the blue lights. It has plenty of room for hard drives, DVD/CD drives, etc. When it arrived I began installing everything and when I looked in the instruction booklet, I found the instructions were very vague and the pictures of little assistance. This slowed my progress down a bit.
Summary: The case is amazing but it just seems that it was either rushed while packaging or just banged around in the box because the top screw to remove the right panel is hard to remove and replace since that part has been dented in. It is still operational but just cosmetic damage.
Summary: This is a nice case, middle of the pack I would say. Somewhat elegant, construction does not seem to be an issue for me, feels pretty sturdy. The window on the side is pretty big to show most of your components, blue lights gives it a nice touch. Fans are fairly quiet, screwless mounts for CD-ROM and HDD works nicely. I'll be adding another fan on the front for better airflow when I get my Radeon HD5770s Crossfired.
Flimsy construction, difficult to install through drive bay panels

Summary: One of the first problems I encountered with this case was the side panels. They are thin and I noticed a bend after removing them two times during installation. The front panel door springs are poorly designed and popped out after one month of use so both doors remain open. This helps the heat issue with the case, but does nothing for the look of the tower let alone the loose metal springs I have not been able to find in the computer; not a comforting thought.
Summary: What a great case! Comes with a 120mm black exhaust fan and a 120mm blue led intake fan. Side panel connections: 2 USB 2.0, headphones, mic., esata. Two simple buttons on the front, one is power and the other is reset. Nice big clear window on the side to show off your computers 'insides'. Nicely built case and it looks great with the blue fan on the side and blue lights on the front (i recommend adding some cold cathodes on the inside because it looks even better).
Summary: This was an easy to put together case. I had no problems putting it together. The case itself is solid and looks good. The only problem I had was getting the plates off the dvd trays, the directions are a little sketchy. I am still not sure how I got it in there.
