Bought two, one was a killer

Chris M., Newegg
5 days ago
  • Summary: I bought two of these cases w/ PSU and built two identical home theatre PC's with all the exact same components. After a year, one started to exhibit weird behavior such as turning on after it's been turned off. I also experienced a few random crashes with it. One day, I go to turn it on and my SSD has failed and isn't recongnized by any computer.
  • Pros: -Cheap -No sharp edges -OK airflow if using low power parts
  • Cons: -Power supply failed and killed an SSD

Good Value

Paul M., Newegg

  • Pros: Well made case, compact for smaller basic systems, enough power for most applications (Hard Drive, DVD Burner etc), stylish. Easy to install components.
  • Cons: Documentation is basic, and 'faded' on small paper sheets, but plugs were clearly marked anyway. Drive door was not attached, was NOT broken, just not installed. Found the door's spring and was able to install. Guess the production line was crimped for time.

Dust issue in horizontal position

aaron r., Newegg
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: In the horizontal position, you can see the huge 6" x 6" square vent on the side...well, that sits right above the cpu cooler, and is going to pull in a huge amount of dust right onto the motherboard. That opening does not need to be so large. The rear slot above the motherboard is also wide open, maybe mine didn't come with a block off plate? Dust will be a huge enemy with this case.
  • Pros: Fairly sturdy Everything fits
  • Cons: Weak/loud fans Huge openings for dust to be pulled in Bulky for matx My power supply will not put out the rated 300 watts Cables really get in the way of ventilation

You get what you pay for

Joseph C., Newegg
18 November 2014
  • Summary: I use this as an HTPC in my children's playroom. I have it laying down flat and turned to the side. The only side that shows is a flat black panel which could pass for a VCR. It has survived several direct blows from flying toys without incident.
  • Pros: Power supply works, spacious enough for my needs. Panels can be removed easily enough. Feels solid.
  • Cons: No frills. Not the most attractive case. No real cable management.

Solid, pretty and easy to manuever

Bytes S., Newegg
18 October 2014
  • Pros: High value, simple and functional.
  • Cons: 3.5 slot will not accommodate many multi-card readers unless they can mount from the bottom. The tray in the case will not allow side mounted screws. The manufacturer (Rosewill) says they do not sell a card reader that will work in this machine.

One flaw

Bytes S., Newegg
17 October 2014
  • Pros: Beautiful case, solidly built, great value. Easy to configure.
  • Cons: The manufacturer (Rosewill) does not manufacture an internal multi-card reader that can mount in the chassis. A card reader must have mounting holes on the bottom to fit this case. Bummer.

Ok, but a little louder than expected.

Paul B. Kohler "live2dive", Amazon
24 September 2014
  • Summary: It's OK. It does it's job but it's a bit larger than I expected. I used this for an HTPC, and all in all, it is fine. I can see how it would have been easy to decrease the depth of the case by a few inches, as there is a ton of wasted space toward the front inside. As it is now, the case hangs of the back of my entertainment center shelf a little. Also, the case fan is a bit louder than I would have liked for an HTPC.
