Similar to Define R2/R3, it offers a number of interesting functions with a very stylish appearance. It's a case focused on low noise level, without neglecting other important features such as cooling, expandability and ease of use.

Excellent Build Quality, Good Cable Management Capabilities, Stylish looks
An excellent choice for people looking for a large case that fits stylishly in any home/apartment similar to the R4.

This case is intended for people looking to build a major PC with tons of storage and does so very very well. Overall an excellent case.

Experience: 1 Weeks
Sleek Design
Well designed interior
Top oriented power button
For myself, the design with the top power button is not satisfactory, due to having cats that step on the button. Otherwise, I thoroughly love the case. It is designed well, is quiet, and is solid. I find it heavy, but it is well made.

LOTS OF SPACE for airflow and hard drives. sleek design, easy cable management, easy access for modifying or switching out parts. Quiet
it's a bit /too/ big, I was a little ambitious with my purchasing. Make sure you measure where you plan on putting the tower to make sure it fits or else you'll find yourself needing to get a different desk.
I love this tower. Even if it's a bit too big, it's worth it if you want the 10 internal drive bays. There is room for 3 additional fans 120mm (one of them is both 140 and 120 compatible) on top of the 3 it already has. This is the kind of case you would get if you're planning on going all the way and building a supercomputer. The smaller version of the Fractal Refine would be ideal if you don't need the extra hard drive bays. Comes with extra plates and screws and cable ties for management. I am using this tower with an Asus P8P67 Pro motherboard, GeForce 570 GPU, i5 3.4ghz CPU, 16 GB RAM, earthwatts 750 power supply, crucial M4 256gb SSD for system/game loading performance and 1tb seagate barracuda hard drive for mass storage. I hope I can find reason to utilize the rest of the hard drive bays eventually :)

-Plenty of room to work with including the rear for cable management
-Lots of 3.5" bays
-Good sound dampening
-Sturdy, well-built
-Door does not open 270 degrees like on the P182, at least 180 degrees would have been nice
-Stock fans are quiet but very weak
-No front panel eSATA port anymore, last revision had it
-Some drive trays are too tight, have to use a dremel on the locking tab
Bought this to replace my P182 and will be home to a new X79 watercooled build. It's a nice, sleek looking case that's very similar in design to Antec. Love the black and white theme. Simplistic looking exterior which I prefer over ones with LEDs all over the exterior. Plenty of 3.5" drive bays and trays. Good sound dampening material on side panels.

I will be replacing the 140mm and 180mm fans because they are too weak for my tastes. They are really quiet though. Also, some of the drive trays don't "snap" into place even when pushed all the way in. I have to dremel the locking tab a bit in order for it to fit.

This is the new version that includes USB3.0 ports in the front panel. They did however remove the eSATA port.
