Pros: Case is great, the negative reviews for tight hardware is due to paint in the fastener holes, easily removed the first time you run the hardware in. Case is roomy, enough hardware to put a micro ATX and 3 hard drives.
Cons: If you are going to run cables behind the mb support, it does not have enough room, but without glass whats the difference.
Summary: This case gives you the ability to run the sata/power cables behind the MB plate to the bottom front of case. However, once you've done this, putting the side back on the case is a bit of a trick. It's a TIGHT fit so you may actually need someone to help you.
Pros: 4 Front USB Ports Front eSATA Connection Good Cable Management (see Other thoughts)
Cons: ZERO clearance between an ATX MB and the PSU (I did not deduct any eggs - this is more of a warning than a complaint - please see Other thoughts)
Summary: I wouldn't give this case to my worst enemy. I've never been more angry at an inanimate object. When I buy a new case, I will slow motion destroy this with a baseball bat while listening to Geto Boys song Still like that scene in Office Space with the printer.
Pros: It was cheap, and on sale. Suppose my owning this was more a beggars choosers situation than anything.
Cons: I am very confident that with 20 minutes and an exacto knife that I could turn the cardboard box that this case was shipped in into a better quality case. I'll just rattle off a list here. •MOBO posts would not screw in my fingers, had to use pliers. •Thumb screws to hold on case sides are severe...
Summary: No power supply in case ypou were wondering. Its an opportunity to find and install a good one!
Pros: This is my second Blackbone case, bought one for my wife last year. It makes assembly and upgrades easy and is very functional! Love the no tools installation for system drives. Sharp looking case! Price was right.
Summary: I don't understand why Newegg doesn't allow people to edit their previous reviews..
Pros: No new Pros..Just adding onto my last review...
Cons: The thumbscrews in the back are a major pain. I have two of these cases and they both get stuck going in, mostly because the holes in the side panel don't line up with the holes in the back of the case. Also, if I've got the case sitting on a carpeted floor and I touch it and discharge static ele...
Summary: I personally don't like using tool-less plastic locks to hold my drives in so I just replace all the plastic parts with actual screws. FYI the case comes with 9 MB standoffs 18 binding screws (for the MB and HDDs 8 pan washers for optical drives 4 PSU screws.
Pros: I bought one of these a few years ago on my last PC build and my two complaints were the rear fan being awfully slow and the front of the case being near-impossible to take off without uttering obscenities. I bought another last week and I can see the front panel is way easier to take off. I just...
Cons: On my first case, the frontside USB ports weren't grounded because anything I'd plug into them would result in my PC freezing or rebooting itself. This didn't start happening until I moved to a drier climate and an apartment that is 90% carpet. Once I finish my new build I will know if the issue ...
Summary: Other that the fan not working and my heat sink not fitting it's perfect. I guess I just got a bad one and I am too lazy to return it. My new computer is up and running and I don't want to take it apart.
Pros: Great case. I love the jacks in the front. Silent fans. cheap
Cons: The front fan doesn't always spin. I have to nudge it or blow really hard. once it is going it stays on. Large CPU heatsinks won't fit inside.
