Summary: Very quiet case fans. Like, silent enough that I initially thought something was wrong. A very modest case (which I love) and a tool-less design which means that the HDD and the Optical Drive slide right in and clip into place, no screws required. That being said, you will obviously still need a screwdriver for mounting the mobo and all of your other components. USB 3.0 is great, as well. This is actually an extremely good case for the money.
Summary: The next higher up version comes with 2 case fans + front usb 3.0 for slightly more.
Pros: Very nice air-flow, internally, about 45c +/- (1 case fan) You can subtly hear the air moving, if you listen hard Great cable management options Looks even nicer IRL, very pretty IMO Comes with 1 120mm (quiet) rear case fan Optional rear punch-outs, for water cooling Very solid build material, sturdy, but not heavy Can install around 6 fans, total, if you wanted to Price is amazing for what you get
Cons: Vibrations in side/front covers, easily fixable Taller than expected (not really a con) No front usb 3.0 My cpu (evo 212) cooler comes very close to the side panel Not many REAL cons
Summary: Very nice case. looks conservative and professional while maintaining some style. Plenty of room for extra stuff as well. I put a huge heat sink in it, and an additional fan in the front. They obviously gave some thought to flexibility, it will hold many different form factors of motherboard, and I was impressed that they had similarly set up multiple mounting configurations for different form factors of power supply.
It has good cable management capability and lots of space for adding ...

Summary: I've been building custom computers for around 15 years, so I've seen my share of different cases. This one is definitely worth every penny, giving you a lot of bang for your buck. I was actually astonished at all of the features this case offers, given that I've owned some $150+ cases that weren't engineered to as high of a quality as this.
Pros: I used this case to rebuild an older system. This case is great for the price, I got it for $19.99 after a $20 rebate. Plenty of room in this case, great cable management, good air flow, and it feel well made. I'm very happy with this case and would buy another in the future.
Cons: No USB 3.0, USE 2.0 front panel may be a issue for some but as I was rebuilding an older system it wasn't a issue. No SSD mounting option, You'll need a 3.5 bracket to mount a 2.5 SSD in this case.
Summary: My wife wanted me to build her a computer that didn't look like an "alien" or a "stormtrooper" so, this case was a good choice. It was easy to install components and airflow is good. I've installed a blue fan and blue lighting looks great with it. The case feels sturdy but is surprisingly light. It could use a 2.5inch drive bay slot for solid state disks, but you can easily find an adapter for that for under ten dollars. A solid choice for a normal looking computer case.
Summary: Nice case, but there are no 2.5 hard drive ports. With the addition of SSDs in most modern computers, i would expect this as standard but I can't remove stars since it never states that it does have them.
