Summary: Still building the rig so I havent booted it up yet to see how the fans, USB, and button works. Will be getting a better looking case in the future with less super glue.
Pros: If it wasnt destroyed in shipping it would be a decent cheap case. I couldnt pass up a combo deal that included this case.
Cons: All 16 clips holding the front of the unit on were broken. I dont have the time to send back so I superglued them back on. The top part of the case itself was also caved in on one corner, I had to bend it back out.
Summary: I bought this case because I needed a smaller case. It's definitely on the less-expensive side of computer cases. I have an air-cooled, single-GPU, 2-HDD setup and no overclocking. Look elsewhere for a case if you plan on doing much more. -Front panel motherboard cables are attached to the removable front bezel. Just a note should the front fan need replacing. -The side panels bend easily and off chip paint if you, say, sit on them. Easily bent back into shape.
Pros: -No visible damage -Both panels came with thumbscrews -Front 120 mm fan came with 4-pin Molex and 3-pin motherboard connectors -Got it on sale for $20 delivered -Not much wasted space (see cons)
Cons: The case is very small. I knew this when I bought it, but for completeness: -Stick with a stock or similarly low-profile CPU cooler if you plan on changing your 3.5" drives ever -No motherboard access from back when installed, use a CPU cooler that fastens from the topside of the motherboard -Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus is ~5 mm too tall to fit in the case without modification, for reference Minor cons: -One of the front panel USB ports was DOA, not enough to seek RM...
Summary: Really nice little case. Front bezel isn't super fancy, but doesn't stick out too bad next to the amplifier and gaming consoles. Too me, it's small enough to were it's still manageable to work inside of, so set up of an MATX board, a sata drive and a couple of HDD's took me about 10 minutes or so. Comes with a motherboard warning beep speaker, brass motherboard mounting screws, thumb screws for both side panels and 2 reasonably quiet fans.

Summary: I make computers for my family ( going onto #31 )and I use Rosewill cases because of the durability of the cases. Used to use there fans but two new fans in one day! QUALITY CONTROL it is going to cost me $ 9. to replace rear fan and $10. for the front .$19 ( not counting shipping.) for fans on a case that cost $30.
Pros: Made it for my wife she likes a small case. every thing fit in a very tight space. Used a modular psu, only one HDD ,and 8 gigs 2X4 ram.Aa old heat sink from a amd 8350. No frills just a basic computer. Construction Very Exultant ,light weight and small.
Cons: UPS delivered to wrong house, fans went out in one day ( front fan in the AM ) back fan in the PM. come on Rosewill you used to be #1 in fans! and cases.
Summary: Bought this case to fill in as my potential new "Standard Build" choice as the case I used to use is no longer sold. All in all I'm pleased with this case and will most likely continue to use it for my business clients system builds.
Pros: -Cheap. -Was exactly what I thought it would be. -Has and excellent out of box airflow setup to cool any PC running a stock CPU clock.
Cons: -Build feels somewhat cheap but I can't really complain, I didn't expect it to be that of a Corsair.
