Summary: Good blacked-out case. Perfect for someone who doesn't need all the bells and whistles. I have purchased about a half dozen of these and not a single one had any issues as well as the included PSU. I love the small form factor of these and the glossiness is great.
Summary: If you're looking for a no nonsense case that does the job for a good price, you can't go wrong with this.
Pros: Simple case, the high gloss finish is nice (people seem to like shiny). Standard steel setup inside. I like tooless, but for the price no arguements. Corners are mostly rounded so nothing too sharp. Although the rather large glowing power button does have a little play in it, but t's huge and eas...
Cons: A little play in the power button at times and could use an extra fan, but overall rock solid.
Summary: Very difficult to install HDD and optic drive into the bays. You have to breakout the expansion bay slot covers, which are riveted on and not a simple task. Even with the flimsy plastic "locking" mechanism installed onto the HDD, the HDD can still move around in the bay.
Summary: I purchased this case+power supply used ($12 off) for a extreme budget HTPC build. Big mistake! The power supply was dead on arrival! 2 stars off for that. If you buy it new im sure it will be fine for your budget build.
Summary: I am extremely satisfied with this case. It is perfect for low-power builds that require little airflow. It has a lot of nice little touches that made me happy, and the $50 price tag was awesome.
Summary: Picked this case for a very simple build, and it was a great choice. It's sturdy, has simple aesthetics, and there's plenty of room for what I needed. Great option for a budget browser or HTPC.
Pros: Inexpensive. Plenty of room for moderate builds. Fairly sturdy. Comes with power supply
Cons: The removable 3.5" drive cage is slightly flimsy and locks in oddly. Power supply limits potential of builds. Limited options for airflow and cooling.
Summary: Do not buy this unless you are on extreme budget like I was. Even then I strongly suggest getting "Antec MicroATX Tower Case VSK-3000E" which cost $27.55 with "EVGA 430W 80PLUS Certified" which is around $35 atm of writing.
Summary: None, if you need a quality box, don't even consider this one. One egg is as low as it can go.
Pros: Still a shiny little metal box but that's about it.
Cons: After moving components from one case to another it was determined the case wiring was defective. I requested a new wiring harness for the case but was told the RMA process was the only way to remedy the situation. However, that involved additional cost on my part for shipping the junk box to Cal...
