It does look nice, but even for a budget case I feel it's lacking.

Summary: I purchased this case for a mid-priced build I was doing. I liked the way it looked and the specs seemed satisfactory. However, it's really small on the inside for a mid tower size case. It's cramped. Mounting fans inside is difficult because of the proximity to other components.
Summary: I couldn't get over the fact that this looks like a McDonalds toy with the transparent red plastic window and odd protrusions on the front of the case. Where is the button that plays the dialup sound?
Summary: This case was great! It looks good, and even has USB 3.0! And I thought this too, until I took a look inside the case... The USB 2.0 motherboard cable was missing, this rendering the port on the front of the case useless.
Summary: I regret having to make this update because Thermaltake took care of my issue in a very professional manner. However, as a consumer I wish to help others in their decision buying process. The bottom line is I do not recommended this product.
Summary: Not a bad case if you're on a tight budget. Feels solid enough though and they give you 2 thumb screws for the back. Entire front panel is well designed as it simply snaps off/on for easy access (no screws to play around with). My real 'beef' is with the front panel console (USB, jack/jack USB3).
Pros: Solid construction, easy front access.
Cons: Front pannel does not work; reversed HDD Activity leads.
Summary: i dont use water cooling that requires tubes passing out the back but if u do dont go with this case, in fact dont go with this case if u require any sort of water cooling, there's no room for a radiator, had to drill holes in mine to make my antec 620 fit the rear, and the water tubing holes in the...
Pros: cheap light weight nice look, in my opinion
Cons: good for basic computing not a gaming tower by any means bad airflow comes with 1 fan holes make alot of noise with fans there a bit short so u can fit maybe 1 fan on the top but 2 would be near impossible bad cable management
Summary: Great case other than that the cables won't fit into their corresponding slots. I looked at every aspect of this case before buying and it never gave any warning of this happening or this not being compatible with that.
Pros: Haven't had any issues so far with installing the motherboard and power supply.
Cons: I just don't understand why the plug they gave me to plug into the USB 2.0 slot on my motherboard won't fit. I looked at the pin pattern and saw that the plug they gave me in the case wasn't going to fit into the motherboard slot. This makes no sense to me as nobody has yet to experience this pro...
Summary: If you decide to use the Stock CPU cooler you should have no problem with the fans, but if you want to build something a bit hardcore i suggest getting something different.
Pros: Very easy installation of all types of drives, nice design, good cable management, good ventilation and fan placement
Cons: Cause is too small to fit Corsair H60 Radiator (the radiator is too tall and hits the top of the case), depending on your motherboard placing 120mm fans on top of the case wont fit (for me the fans hit the RAM release knob things)
Summary: it does what it says, there are a few things I really didn't like and it isnt mentioned in the description either. The fact that the usb 3.0 front panel connector does not have the 20 pin adapter, it just has standard usb 3.0 connectors which I had to then order for an extra £6.
