  • Summary: I used this case for my first build and for the price you pay this case is so worth it. Here are some cons just to get them put of the way. -the USB ports on front panel are installed upside down. Really doesn't effect me at all so I've left them that way since I'm lazy.

A good budget option

Adam C., Newegg
5 July 2015
  • Pros: - window - good cable mgmt space - spacious - nice, clean NZXT aesthetics
  • Cons: - window scratches REALLY easily, beware (like use the wrong cloth for dusting and it gets all scratched up) - no USB 3.0, even for a budget case, it should have USB 3.0 - only one fan included - absolutely no dust filtration - inward facing HDD cages, which is maybe more of a personal con...rear...

Good

Louis C., Newegg
23 May 2015
  • Pros: Really good airflow and nice looking. Easy to modify (I installed a home made air filtration system under and inside the case) and I cut the side pannel to make a plexiglass window. More than enough space, even if i have 6 fans a r9 290 a liquid cooler, and 3 hard drives, CPU's is nice and cool.
  • Cons: Hard to wash the thermal paster of it... hahaha, can't see inside. The GPU gets hot, but, it's AMD...

Nice Case for $45

Bryant T., Newegg
7 May 2015
  • Summary: Pretty much my only complaint and only reason I took out a point was cause of the alignment of the holes and screws for the motherboard. I mean, i understand this could also be my own inadequacy to put it all together, who knows.
  • Pros: -Nice looking case, i like the see through window -Came pre built. Not sure how many cases come pre built as this is my first case purchase, but i thought it was great the case was already assembled -More spacious than i thought. According to pcpartpicker and some other reviews, i would have had ...
  • Cons: -Had trouble aligning the holes and getting the screws into place

Update

Jamie P., Newegg
1 May 2015
  • Summary: Updated thoughts related to my previous review: 1. I learned about SSD Bays. So for other dummies like me that might have, for example, been given an SSD by a friend without a bay or mention of a bay, you need a bay :P 2. Ended up going with 3 ties and 1 screw for my small fan.
  • Pros: Apparently you can't edit a review?
  • Cons: Not enough motherboard screws included in peripherals.

About what you'd expect.

Shaun C., Newegg
28 April 2015
  • Summary: This case is about what you would expect for the price. It's made of very lightweight materials which may make some people think it's "cheap" but it suits my needs. There's something like 8 3.5" drive mounts, so if you're building a NAS box or something this would be a decent choice.
  • Pros: Good overall quality for a basic build. Tons of 3.5" drive mounts.
  • Cons: Paint interferes with screws and standoffs. Front panel LEDs are integrated with power and reset buttons and they bleed into each other. Unusable 2.5" drive mount on the bottom of the case. There is a set of four screw holes on the bottom of the case labeled "2.5" drive" which is completely usele...

Good case, bad Customer Support

Jamie P., Newegg
3 April 2015
  • Summary: I will never buy from NZXT again if this is how they treat their customers. It has been almost, if not, 3 weeks since I filed my ticket about the missing screws and they have not shipped them yet.
  • Pros: Had for a month but not able to use due to missing screws. However, being my first build, I didn't realize that before I started so I did actually build just about the whole thing. It was user friendly, had plenty of space, very aesthetically pleasing, fairly solid construction.
  • Cons: These are all related to things that I didn't know about or to look for with it being my first build. 1. Major issue for me, I have a teeny tiny (that's a technical term by the way!) SSD and nowhere to put it. I don't really know what I'm going to do, tie it in I guess? 2. The holes in the fan ve...

Great ATX Case for the Money!

Don F., Newegg
27 March 2015
  • Summary: I used this case as part of a small upgrade for a computer I originally built in 2011. I didn't want to invest too much as the hardware was usable, but slightly outdated. The case is a good buy for older motherboards. Remember though the front panel has only USB 2.0.
  • Pros: Quiet, Cool, Well Built - I was really surprised by the NZXT 210. A few weeks ago I spent a few hours reading reviews for a budget ATX case and even with the many positive reviews here, I was skeptical. I have had it a few days but over all I am very pleased with my purchase. The drive bay are ni...
  • Cons: The 2.5" drive mount on the floor doesn't fit any ssd drive that I have. I knew this before purchase though from some of the other reviews. I don't see why its not fixed though as the case has been out on the marker for a few years. I didn't have any other troubles.

Great case for a budget build!

Brian G Thomas, Amazon
6 February 2015
  • Summary: Pros: Everything fits and really nothing is wrong with the case. Everything you could want in a case is there. Cons: Not very spacey. My hyper 212 evo cooler does fit inside, but it's very close.
