Summary: I think this case looks really cool, the heat management is actually great... but there are some things that I don't like as much: Cable management is OK if you have a modular power supply, if you don't, then it's just bad. No access to the powersupply switch once the case is closed.
Planning on using this case with an optical, or 3.5" drive? Read below...

Summary: Not a big thing, but ALL cables use the top plastic grill as a entrance facility -Woulda been nice to have a knockout (or a 2nd back panel with a hole in it?) to run cables out of the back as opposed to the top
Pros: So once upon a time, finding handheld instrumentation a bit lacking I found myself wanting to have a garage computer to throw on a cart, with a couple 24"s and some speakers to diagnose vehicles Im working on, flip on some tunes, some videos, doing some packet injection against neighborhood AP's,...
Cons: Size (Not necessarily saying this is some huge caveat or anything, but when I got it -I was of the opinion that its ~30% bigger than what the pics n' videos allude to in height) The other thing here is powersupplies...

Summary: Recently built this system, consisting of an Asus P8P67-M Pro, Core i7 2600k, GTX580, 240Gb SSD. Using stock CPU and GPU cooler, and only the top case fan. System is very quiet and keeps things reasonably cool. Planning on getting a better aftermarket cooler, but right now happy with stock cooler.
Pros: Not your typical looking case, pretty cool and quiet, with room to build a pretty powerful system
Cons: You need to choose components very carefully., The side intake really wrecks the appearance of the case., The "front" USB3 ports are useless., Power and reset buttons are too prominent, making them very easy to press by accident.
