Summary: Needed a budget case for a HTPC. Chose this one because the it was slim and look very modern in the front. The case is very solid and I was able to fit the following inside: -DVD-RW -SSD -HDD -Floppy Disc drive Card Rader + USB 3.0 port. I didn't think I could fit that much in there, but it works. Under the the location where a floppy disc would go was enough room for a SSD. The only problem was that there is only 2 SATA adapters and 2 MOLEX adapters.
Summary: These are good simple cases. I have built a few small office computers using these and they seem to be a well built case. Overall very good value for the money. I don't know long term how the power supply will hold up but I have had no problems with the 2 that I have purchased and they have been running 3+ months now I think.

Summary: Decent mATX case but the top mounted fan is useless for my setup so I had to do some customization. Included PSU has not fried yet and it is pushing a FX6350 in a render node that will stay at 100% load for hours on end.
if you are looking for a slimline case with a built in PSU this is the best I've found

Summary: For the price, if you are looking for a slimline case with a built in PSU this is the best I've found. That being said the build quality is decent but the front power button is very weak, I had to re-attach it after about 6 months of use.
Summary: I have purchased 2 of these Slim cases, 1 for my own office and another to build for a client. I find them to be a very good value for the money. There is plenty of room for an SSD and HDD for storage. The power supply is more than adequate for any components you can fit in here. I do like the space available for a normal DVD instead of having to put in a slim drive. The only slight drawback may be the side exhaust case fan.
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
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.
