Ample expansion possibilities mean your Merc can grow with the rest of your system, while friendly DIY features make system installation headache-free. Armed with multiple fan locations and rich connectivity, Merc lets you get your game on without breaking the bank.

Pros
CHEAP!
great simple features.
Cons
no usb 3.0
Summary
Got this for a pc build for my mom. Sad part is that the inside looks better than my old NZXT tempest.... for $30, great case. Not much to say about it, it's elegant, simple. Make sure to put the sticker on properly.. one of the sharp kept sticking out slightly, I cut myself like an idiot 2 times lol.

Pros
Lightweight
Lots of 3.5" slots
Cheap when on sale
Cons
none so far
Summary
This was a surprisingly decent case for $30 on sale. Worth every cent at that price. Lots of 3.5" bays for a mid tower case.

Pros
Low cost, above average quality
Cons
a bit flimsy and light
Summary
The lightweight construction may be a pro or con depending on the person. I felt it was a bit light. Was a bit noisy when using DVD drive. Other than that, lots of features, doesn't skimp on much. I also have a Fractal case and the difference in features are not substantial. Great buy!

Pros
- Inexpensive
- Cable management
- Plenty of drive slots
- Minimalist design
Cons
- Limited airflow as is (just one exhaust fan)
- No air filters
- Steel side panels are fairly thin
Summary
For the money this is an excellent budget case. The cable management is pretty good on this case and there are plenty of drive slots. I like the minimalist design. They give you a ton of thumbscrews, which make adding drives quick and easy.

Air flow is not the best. Included is only 1 exhaust fan. You can add two 120mm fans in the front, but there is only a tiny bit of mesh at the bottom to allow cool air into the case. You can also add 2 120mm to the side panel and one more on the bottom. There are no air filters

The steel side panels are a little thin. If you add fans it can get a little loud.

Overall great budget case though.

Pros
- Clean, simple design
- Added value features
Cons
- Flimsy PCI cover
- Side panel fitment
Summary
I replaced a decade plus old case in favour of the Merc Beta on my secondary PC. It was an easy decision really. The unexciting but clean black design coupled with features like the rear motherboard cutout, space for cable management, multiple 120mm fan mounts, centering point standoff for your motherboard and even a spot for a SSD are nice touches not usually found all together in this budget segment.

There are a few corners cut to package this together however. The flimsy PCI backplate tends to be malleable and is only secured with 1 center screw - you only see design in low priced cases. The side panels also lack notches so fit and alignment of the panels to the chassis is less than perfect.

In the end, HD temps dropped to 25-30c with the addition of 2 standard 120mm fans up front, top mount USB ports are always nice to have and at this price point you don't have to deal with gaudy, over the top designs you'd normally find at this price point. On sale, it's a great buy.

Pros
Roomy
Cheap
Cons
Felt very flimsy
There weren't enough standoff holes
It was a VERY tight fit to screw in the mobo
Summary
Very good for the price, although there weren't enough stand off holes(for mATX mobos?).

Pros
-Black interior
-decent space at the back for wire management
-internal cables are sleeved
-can fit 12.6" graphics card (without hdd installed infront of it)
Cons
-Front fan intake is very small (reducing airflow)
-no dust filters (to be expected for a budget case)
Summary
Great budget case for an HTPC, but if you're building a gaming or folding rig or anything requiring more cooling, I'd suggest getting the Bitfenix Merc Alpha instead. It's identical to the Beta except the Alpha has 2x 120mm fan slots at the top. The only reason I went with the Beta is because it was for a family computer which would likely have stuff put ontop of it, and I didn't want paper clips and stuff falling into the case.
