Summary: This is actually a very nice decent micro atx case. had 2 problems with it. the first one being the hidden cable management being a little hard to do. i dont really think it was built at all for this yet it has the holes for it. not a big problem after i shoved the 2nd panel down hard. but the 2nd problem is that this came to me with the FACE PANEL broken! it looked like someone really went incredible hulk on it when i opened the box! completely damaged.
Summary: Nice glossy black finish. The 2 front USB ports were a welcome addition. I suppose my only issue was the front cover is pretty difficult to remove. The instructions state you just pull, but I felt like I was going to break it. Wound up just leaving it on and popping out the drive bay covers from the inside.
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 don't know what other people are taking about in terms of a lack of space, because I had plenty. Well, except for the hole on the left side (looking from behind) to access the SATA drives was super small, but the right side is completely open. Holds everything I need it to, and the side panels are easy enough to take off. However, when I took the front panel off to install a disk drive in, I had to use force.
It was easy to disassemble and the fans were in excellent places ...

Summary: First off, let me say I am a relatively new to building computers. I use this case to build a 600 dollar computer. It was easy to disassemble and the fans were in excellent places to cool the motherboard, the mechanical hard drive, and the graphics chip. However, this case is extraordinarily small, and I had a hard time doing wire control with the power wires. Although people may like a small case, I would prefer a bigger one because things just feel cramped.
Summary: I have bought 12 of these for my office, and they were all perfect. I love the large fans that come with the case, and it has a very nice clean simple look. Been using them a couple months and the fans seem great. The metal is definitely substantial enough for a computer case. One was dented but it's box was also smashed in, although the outer shipping box was fine...so it got smashed prior to being placed into the outer shipping box.
Summary: If you need a cheap MicroATX case, you can't go wrong with this Rosewill (NewEgg's housebrand). It's made of cheap steel and plastic VS aluminum, but the build-quality isn't bad at all. There aren't too many sharp edges inside, and the side panels of the case are thankfully attached with two (plastic) thumb screws making access easier. One word of caution: This case is only ~6" wide, so double-check your after-market CPU cooler dimensions.
