Summary: My original review has not yet posted but I wanted to add a correction for my mistake. I was tired & am, for all intents & purposes, blind in my left eye due to a detached retina. I'll have it repaired but I have to get these 2 PCs delivered first. Anyway, I erroneously referred to a missing part as a "CPU shroud" when what I meant to say was "air duct". Rosewill explicitly refers to "adjusting the length of the duct" despite not including one with the case.
Summary: I've used Rosewill brand cases for dozens of budget builds & I've always been pretty happy with their products. This case, although very attractive with the glossy black finish, is a pretty emphatic statement how Rosewill has gone downhill in the last couple of years. I've *never* received a Rosewill case that didn't have a CPU shroud. This is a first.
Pros: Nice looking case; good fit & finish; decent documentation; enough hardware included; at least this case had a system fan
Cons: No CPU shroud included; front panel is a little squirrelly
Summary: This is my first budget build PC case, I usually work with higher-end cases, and I am mightily impressed with it. The price/quality/value ratio on this case is great, especially if you get it on special.
Pros: Honestly, I bought this case more as a personal experiment to build a linux-based PC with leftover old parts (Core 2 Duo E6700, DDR2 RAM, etc...). I needed a cheap case, ideally with integrated PSU, with little hassle to get it up and running. Boy did this case deliver! Strong points: - Well packaged: usual styrofoam, but every panel was well protected with plastifilm shielding to prevents scratches/fingerprints during packagind/delivery. - Looks and is actually very ...
Cons: Of course, there always are a few cons, especially when it comes to budget PC cases: - PSU does not include a PCI 6-Pin or 8-Pin connector! it's my fault, I should have done further research, but I simply used a twin molex 4 pin to PCI 6 pin adapter to use my Nvidia GTX 550ti. - It's true: while great looking, the glossy finish is a fingerprints magnet, if you must manipulate it, it will have smudgy fingerprints very quickly. - And the hidden danger: the PSU looks a l...
Summary: I have had a Dell Insprion 580 forever, but decided to build an alternate more graphic intensive computer so if my Dell should ever falter, I would just sell the tower and whatever else. I really like the big power button, it is so.. satisfying to push. Reset button is so freakin awesome, I am actually new to this, always wanted to reset the computer without having to do it through software. Sometimes I just like to take my frustration out physically.
Pretty good, but quite large for a "Micro" ATX case.

Summary: Overall, I'm pretty happy with the case. It's sturdy, it has plenty of space so the cables don't get tangled up in inside.
Pros: Great paint finish, sturdy, and has a really cool blue led power button. I'm really liking the front panel: when you open your dvd drive, it flips the cover down. Pretty cool. Seems plenty big enough to fit my video card in there.
Cons: Well, not really a con, but..... I should have been more careful doing research. I was under the impression that this would be a micro atx case. Sure, it's not the same size as a mid-tower, but barely. It's quite bit, I had planned on putting it on top of my desk, but due to the size, I had to relocate to the floor. Minor inconvenience, but I really thought it would be much smaller than it is.
