Pros
Elegant, Simple Design
Dust Filters Galore
Fantastic Cable Management Options
Fan Controller
Surprisingly Deep For A Mid-Tower
Removable HDD Cages
Cons
Minor Gripes:
Included Fans Don't Move Much Air
Top Foam Filter Restricts Exhaust
Intake Restricted With Both HDD Cages Installed
Summary
..the minor gripes aside (which are really minor), this case is an absolute must-own...first non-Cooler Master case I've ever owned and I'm sold on Fractal Design...if you don't want/need a gigantic Full Tower, this case is a MUST OWN!!...

Pros
-Looks nice, especially with window
-Comes with nice fans
-Fans have dust filters
-Cable management is good
-Flexible and can fit long GPUs
-Plastic looks nicer than plastics used by competitors
-Good price
Cons
-Plastic front feels cheap
-Not as quiet as Define R4
-Window came scratched
Summary
Very nice chassis for those that like fractal design. I like the looks but an not a huge fan of the plastic front. For the price I really thing some sort of metal should be used. I really like all the fan filters and the included fans move a good mount of air and are not too loud. There is a lot of hard drive trays and this easily fit a bequiet Shadow Rock 2. Not as silent as my define R4 but the airflow makes up for it. Overall a very solid chassis that I don't hesitate to recommend.

Pros
Beautiful case, great cable management.
Cons
The front USB 3.0 ports were both bent so bad to where you cant plug anything in it even trying to force it. The headphone and mic jacks are both bent inside not allowing anything to be plugged in and the fan controller only sets to 7v or 12v. Make sure you check these things before putting your stuff together.

Pros
Looks,air-flow,build quality!
Cons
Wish the filter material wasn't foam!
Included fans are quiet but don't push a lot of air!
Summary
This case was very easy to build in!
Cable management is excellent!
Air-flow is great.
Very spacious for a mid-tower.
Will fit the longest gpu and tall air-coolers.(170mm)
Side window is designed properly!(I prefer not to look at drive cages)
By far the best case I've built in and there has been a few.
Some costing more!

Pros
Style: Love the curved angles, the brushed aluminum-esq paint on the front panel and the side window
Functionality: the Front fan filter is well designed ( pop on/off), and the underbottom filter is extra long, filtering not only the PSU but the bottom intake fan grill.
Also I appreciate how the front panel inputs are connected to the case, not the front panel itself.
Cable management is excellent/amazing. Almost a full inch in the back, no buckling on the back side panel. Never had a tidier interior.
Cons
About the only con I can think of is no Sound dampening material.
Summary
My favorite case to date. Absolutely love it. Worth every penny.

Pros
plenty of room, excellent cable management and air flow
Cons
fan controller only has three lines
Summary
Great case and well worth the money when on sale. Excellent air flow and cable management. Removable HDD cages are great but I wish the 3.5" bays were tool-less.

Pros
-Lot of Fan Slots
-Good Design
-Sleek
Cons
None
Summary
Going from a Cosmos 1000 to this is amazing. Loads of room for drives/fans etc while being much smaller. Great airflow and nice cable management.

Pros
-If you love thumb screws you won't be disappointed.
-extra thumb, special drive, and "standard" case screws come in the accessories box; all black.
-Removable front filter without taking off the bezel.
-Top can be taken off with thumb screws to clean filter.
-3 supplied fans are silent enough that it's not that bothersome on all fan speed settings
-Rubber feet to reduce desk vibration
-Tinted glass
-Rubber grommets for cable management
-Can use three 140mm on top or one larger one (have to check what size), two 140mm in the front, 140mm on bottom and rear
-Lots of room to work with in my opinion
-Noise dampening foam filters on top and front, not on the bottom, but not needed
-removable drive cages for longer video cards and reducing airflow restriction
Cons
-taller and wider if you're coming from an old mid tower case (see my old model above), measure your location first to see if it will fit (I have it on the desk top because it will not fit on the usually tower spot below, and the back fan is about 1/2" away from the hutch). No noise issue from this that I can tell, but almost restricted top exhaust.
-Had to use special drive screws for the SSD and HDD, but they install on rubber washers to reduce vibration on the mounting bracket.
-Small vibration noise coming from the bottom dust filter if moved a certain way, but I haven't heard it lately. Might be bothersome if you move your case a lot (you can see part of the filter plastic on the inside bottom of the case and if you use black tape it might stop the vibration, but I haven't tested that theory).
-Bottom filter can be annoying to remove and put back as the case itself doesn't slide well with the rubber feet, but I would rather have rubber feet to reduce vibration on the desk.
-Didn't come with fan connection splitter if you have more than 3 case fans you want to use with the speed control. I ended up using the one that came with my NH-D14.
-Foam filters might be an issue to clean as I'm used to that from my old case, but easier access might offset this as I can clean it more often without hassle
-No tool-less installation of drives, but not a hassle with the aid of thumb screws at least
Summary
Retired case: Cooler Master Centurion 5 CAC-T05
It's so hard to think of all the good and bad things about this case, but overall I'm 100% satisfied with my decision. Coming from an old case, this is a HUGE improvement. Not only for noise, but for airflow, cleaning, and workroom.
It has all the things that I wanted in a new case.
140mm fan spots with the possibility of a larger fan on top. I have to look into this some more.
A side window as I was tired of a vent.
Front dust filter without removing the bezel is what really sold me.
I recommended this to a couple friends who are going to be doing a build sometime soon.
I will update  if I think of anything else.
A+ case

Pros
Easy to build in, Clean lines
Cons
5.25 bay clearance to upper 240mm Rad
Summary
This case is the latest iteration of my watercooled build. Went in easy, lots of cable managment space and ability to run water tube behind motherboard tray. Looks great except fot the tight squeeze between upper 240mm rad and the 5.25 bays. Could have used 1 inch more for comfort.

Pros
-Sleek and minimalist
-Well built
-Easy to cable manage
-Fan control included
-Silent default fans
Cons
-none I can think of
Summary
I've always wanted a fractal case for the sleek and quite oriented design. This is just the perfect case for me, spacious enough for hefty builds and it's sturdy enough to support it.

I have a huge enclosed water cooler in it and it wasn't hard to fit it in. I'm also happy with the space provided as I could easily manage the cables.

Comment: Where Fractal excels is in their ability to offer a deceptively large amount of room in a smaller chassis. Not only can the R2 accept graphics cards with lengths of 12” or more but it also incorporates mounting locations for up to seven fans (three of these are occupied by Silent Series R2 fans)
