Pros: 1) Nice front finish, looks sharp 2) Small 3) some what good layout 4) super quiet front fan
Cons: 1) low quality manufacturing, coming from Lian-Li case this was shocking 2) there is a good reason that on cases with motherboard mounted upside down the power supply is on the bottom - some cables might be short. I had to buy a 8" extension for the 8 pin aux power connector 3) After 31 days the power LED died. I thought LED light last forever? 4) Support does not answer the phone and mail box is full - support works as good as the their LEDs
Arrived with nearly all motherboard standoff positions stripped and only came with two standoff screws.

Summary: This was my first experience with a Silverstone case. It was much wider than I expected. Overall, the case seemed decent and it was sturdy with the top panel on. However, the power button felt weak and would slightly angle sideways when pressed. It was packaged well and the top dust filter was nicely taped in place. Unfortunately, all but a couple of the motherboard standoff positions were stripped.
Summary: I purchased this case because of it's large quiet fan. Well, that fan is the loudest part of the system. Off of the shelf Dells are quieter and that is saying something. Also, the blue lights are pretty, but don't put this machine in your bedroom because they are bright enough to keep you awake.
Summary: This is a great looking case no doubt, but very flimsy and the one I received had several screws pre-crossthreaded. Also, after building up the system there were 2 holes that would not line up in any way. Very disappointed, I did end up returning it, thanks for Amazons' return policy.
Summary: I reviewed this case before (see Eldem below) and gave it 5 stars. Wow, it's strange how different my feelings are the second time! The drive cage needs to be totally redesigned. Maybe Silverstone could think outside the box and find some way that all drives could be mounted to the bottom of the case. Something. Something must be done. The problems are pretty unacceptable. As it stands now this is the second time I've bought and built with this case.
Pros: 1. Flexibility is the primary "pro" of this case. Being able to fit 5 hard drives is a case of this size is great. 2. Looks quite nice. This is one of the best looking mATX cases you can get. 3. Decent air flow and the air filters are very nice to have. 4. USB 3 ports PSU can be installed UP or DOWN
Cons: 1. Black screws - simple, obvious, yet Silverstone does not provide any in the bag. 2.Floppy is DEAD - 3.5" external bay is worthless, looks dumb 3. FOURTEEN total screws to remove the PSU! Typical case takes just 6 screws! 4. DRIVE CAGE - PROBLEMATIC, NEEDS SERIOUS RETHINKING: *No thought for SSD's. Without 3.5" SSD adapter there is NO GOOD WAY to put in SSD *Tower heatsink WARNING! 90 deg. drive cables required - even with small Hyper TX3 elbow cables just 1 CM clea...
Excerpt: Pro:- Edles Aussehen- kompaktes Gehäuse mit ausreichender Breite für große KühlerContra:- Kaum Platz für 3,5" Festplatten bei Verwendung eines Tower Kühlers. Nur wer den CPU Lüfter in Saugrichtung montiert, hat wenige cm Platz die Festplatten im Festplattengehäuse anzuschließen (an und abstecken nicht komfortabel, Kabelkontakt mit dem Lüfter).
Summary: Lacken är av låg kvalitet på sidoplåtarna. Plåten som använts är extremt tunn och jag har faktiskt aldrig under mina 20 år som datorbyggare haft en tunnare låda. Var tvungen att skruva i en chassiefläkt för att stadga bakstycket. Många av lösningarna och tänket bakom konstruktionen är bra men herregud, lite stål tack?!
