Excerpt: Absolutely the best price and was super happy with the speed in which i received the product. Give a 4.9 out of 5 stars......Bought 2 but received on different days. Most likely the shipping company.
Summary: Over all this thing is a really good case. It looks really nice, has a cool blue LED power light, cool door, cool window, bottom mount PSU, docking station for external drives, spot for a liquid radiator, great cable management, dust screens etc. I was worried about air flow with the door and all, but there's plenty of air flow, plus air can actually enter from between the front feet, so the door doesn't even really matter.
Pros: Sleek and Unique look
Cons: nothing major. One thing I would change would be to make the door swing the other way as it is opposing to the windowed side.
Summary: Ok this case looks great... It has great features, a side window, about 30,000 hard drive slots and a hot swap bay. This is a feature-filled case. It helps with silence by having very tight shutting side doors, a front door which only opens to the left (annoying) and several dust filters on the front, bottom and top. There are 6 places for fans, 2 on the front and top, 1 on the bottom and 1 on the back for exhaust. The hot swap bay is annoying.
Summary: For the money - outstanding. Had a couple of small broken parts when it arrived, small plastic clips holding on the drive bay blanking doors had snapped off in transit, but glued them back. Acrylic window easily scratches. But for sheer value for money, this case is exceptional. Huge central chamber takes a normal ATX motherboard and I fitted a big Noctua CPU air cooler, with an AMD 7970 graphics card and still had bags of room for decent cable management and plenty of...
Summary: Bought this for £50 including delivery and as far as I can tell the simply isn't anything in that price range that can beat it. the image is a bit misleading, looking at the image it suggests that the side panel swings open like a door but it just comes off like any other case side panel using thumb screws but when you look closer at the image you can see they are entirely separated. the two fans the come with the case also don't make much noise.
Summary: I'm very pleased with this case - there are a couple of design flaws though that should be fixed. There is a door on the front of the box that hides the CD drive(s) and this can only be opened from the lower edge which means reaching right down to the floor. I've added a little tag made out of a post-it note (elegant!) so that I can open it from my normal seated position.
Summary: I love this case so much. The previous case I had was awful with no cable management, no removable HDD slots and low quality fans. This case has cable management, removable HDD slots, removable fan filters, a lot of room inside for a graphics card (the HDD bay inside can be removed to allow for a graphics card with 3 fans) and two usb and two usb 3.0 on the front. There is plenty of airflow inside and the case has stands so air can vent below the case.
Summary: I looked at a lot of cases and this one looked the best out of the lot in the price range. Case is nice and big and has plenty of fittings so you can get you set up for whatever rig you plan on making. Mine has a 2 fan cpu water cooler fitted in with no problems and has plenty of points to mount fans. Cable management can be a bit of a squeeze but I got everything looking great and it is a great case to house my pc.
