Pros -Very affordable enclosure. -Sufficent power supply for most basic applications/builds. /KKR500 model has PSU included. -Looks sleeks. -Uses traditional hardware mounting (a plus for me).
Cons -Cheap-feeling front bezel/bay covers. -Non-sleeved and short PSU cables.
Summary Got this model a couple of times recently. I ordered both models (with and without PSU). Overall, for the price, I'm satisfied with what this case has to offer. The power supply is powerful enough to fit most basic needs, and unlike cases from Logisys, HEC, Compucase and the like, it can ACTUALLY be trusted.
I've always prefered the standard screws to secure hardware to the chassis, as they secure them a lot tighter than ANY tool-less system.
The front bezel and 5.25-inch bays covers feel really cheap, though, but I expected as such from a model this cheap. I actually broke a cover while trying to remove it. No big deal since I know that I'll never put it back.
Pros Lightweight/ looks cool/ comes with 120mm fan
Cons Cheap build/ odd fan size mounts/ no PSU
Summary For the price of the case with no PSU, what you get is fairly decent. It comes with a 120mm super quiet fan mounted in the back and has another large 120mm mount on the front and a 90mm on the side. That said, why not the most common 80mm on the side at least? Also, the front grill has no filter and large slots for air so you may see more dust build-up depending on your environment. It's a mid-tower but I'd recommend a mATX motherboard for better airflow and work space. It has lots of drive bays and has a cool blue 'bar' light on the front when powered on, very appealing to the eye in a dark roomWhen all is said and done, this case is great for the price and looks smooth to boot. If I was building another mATX budget rig, I'd snag another one of these for sure!
