Overall great product but some poor quality parts

  • Summary: Overall I really like this product. The front panel power/reset/power LED/HDD Led block is cheap. Poor construction found the switches non-functional and, finally, three of the four wires just fell off. I have contacted the company to to see if they have a solution that does not mean giving up my new computer for weeks. The documentation is, well, terse if not incomplete.

Really want to love this case...

  • Summary: Update 03/16/14: Ok, I had to do it. I returned the case. As much as I loved the looks, I simply couldn't stand to be in the same room with it. It was that loud! Had it been in a media center or something, it might be ok. But even in an 16'x16' bedroom, this guy had some dB's. I'm not sure if it was due to a faulty fan or what, but as soon as I cut the power to the 120mm Silverstone fans, it was dead silent. Of course, then my temp's shot up.

Decent case but I agree with the other 3 star reviewer

  • Summary: I wanted something that looked good in my entertainment console along with my stereo and everything else. So, I like the finish, the chrome feet and the color matches with everything else I have. It also has USB 3.0, which many cases are sitll lacking. Who knows why? It's the new standard, get on it people! Regarding the USB 3.0 ports on the front, I am glad that they actually spread them apart.

These things are way overpriced for what you get

  • Summary: This is a lot of money to pay for an empty box. I mean you can buy a cheap audio receiver for this price, and it's filled with electronics. This is just an empty box with a few fans. Yes it works great, and the included fans are very quiet, but the price is a rip-off for what you get. At the very least they should put the "Silverstone" name in better writing. Painting it on just looks cheap. For a hundred bucks I expect more.
