Summary: This case is a solid foundation for a quality build.
Pros: This case is big enough for a full ATX board, and full size video card(s). It has a good design for air flow and cable management, and places for multiple good sized case fans should you need to add them. The metal is thicker than you would expect for a lower end case, and the side panels slide i...
Cons: It does not come with a POST speaker (luckily I have some spares), it only comes with one fan, and it's only USB 2.0. Another review mentioned that they were having a hard time when removing the motherboard for a swap because the screws were not coming out of the standoffs; I found that the inclu...
Excerpt: I wasn't looking to spend much on a case but also didn't want plastic. I was very impressed, especially with the two fans that come preinstalled. The only thing I would have changed is the fans wire in to a 4 pin connector from the power supply and not to the motherboard.
One of the best bang/buck deals on a new case you can get.

Summary: A fantastic budget option for those who need room to grow. I highly recommend.
Pros: Fairly straightforward, simple case that is very easy to work in. Fan is a pretty decent one as well, and has lots of room to add fans and radiators for decent airflow and AIO liquid cooling units. I recommend this case to just about anyone in need of a cheap unit that has tons of room to grow. -...
Cons: This may be a surprise to some people but... It's a budget case overall. It's not perfect. Power button seems like it's gonna fall off when pressed. Does it's job, but I expect that somewhere down the line, it's probably gonna fall off.
Call it a budget case if you want. I call it amazing, albeit slightly flawed...

Summary: I'd recommend this case to anyone at any budget, I love the look of it. It's a nice bonus that it also happens to be well priced.
Pros: + Spacious, looks to be lots of room for 2+ GPUs + Well ventilated + Cable management on this case is really nice, although it's somewhat challenging to cram everything behind the side panels. + Nice, clean aesthetic (largely subjective, I don't like the usual weird glowing/aggressive looking gam...
Cons: - The USB ports are upside down. - No 2.5" SSD mounting at all. (you'll need a 2.5 to 3.5" mounting plate) - Included fan isn't the quietest, but it does move air.
Summary: If you're looking for a basic black case with no frills, I don't think you can do better than this case
Pros: Basic cable management features, minimalist design, decent amount of space. Accessories are a nice bonus. Feels sturdy for it's price range.
Cons: There's not enough room to route the CPU connector from the power supply behind the board. For a $40 case this is really nitpicking BUT they did include some basic cable management features which I feel like are kind of a waste if you're running the CPU power across the front of the board.
Pros: - Cheap - Window - Black interior - Easy to build in - Feels quality
Cons: - No dust filters. This isn't a big deal in a hardwood environment but a carpeted room kills gathers significantly more dust than I'd expect. - Holes for 2.5" drive on bottom are 90 degrees off, as in they make the drive sideways which makes it so you can't connect it (drive cage in the way). I'm...
