Pros
Solid, good looking.
Cons
Interior placement of parts
Summary
The case looks even better in my living room than in the pictures, and it works great - the front opens and closes quietly and smoothly, all the parts inside work ok. The manual is quite useless - it gives you the general idea but it seems translated online and the pictures are small and vague. I still don't know what the last part, the case lock, is or how it gets installed. As it is not essential, I don't care either. The only problem I had was with the too short wires coming out of the power supply. I had to install the power supply upside down to bring the cables a bit closer. Truly, it is the cheapest power supply money can buy, until I can get a silent one - later. Even so, I had to route the CPU power connector under the video card (...) and it is pretty tight. The other cables are ok. I did not have any problems installing the other parts, I do have a small video card (5450 passive) and it did not disagree with the hard drive. The setup for now is: 400W power, p5ld2 mb, pentium E2160, 4GB DDR2/667, Radeon 5450 passive, 120 GB PATA HD, BD reader. Right now, the noisiest part is obviously the power supply. And another thing: I tried to fit a fan on the side of case, the square hole next to the CPU (and the other 2 fans the case came with). The motherboard is very close to the case panel though and I could not get the fan in there without touching the mb. Maybe I should have installed it in front of the hard drive bay... With only one hard drive I don't think it needs it. I give it 5 starts even with the little problems: cable lengths, unhelpful manual,... In the end, the price was very good and I would buy this case again any time.

Pros
Pictures of product are accurate. Fits ATX motherboard, power supply, and video card if you bend the metal part at the back of the case to make room for it to fit in the slot. If you take the video card out you can place hard drives in the hard drive bay.
Cons
Either you can use a video card, or you can use the hard drive slots. The case has been designed so that these line up, and because of the location of the built in front panel and fan area, the hard drives significantly overlap with the motherboard.
Summary
Overall the case seems nice, the front panel opens and closes well, and I was able to fit everything in except my hard drives. If I allow them to loosely float around in my case, occupying the vacant 5.25 and other bays, I can use *both* my video card *and* have a hard drive, all at the same time, but I admit this is less than ideal. Let's just hope I remember and keep perfect balance whenever I move my case in the future.

If the hd mounting area was swapped with the 3 inch bays, everything would fit perfectly, including all bay devices and all hard drives with any video card, but instead it seems we are left with a case where video card installation was not anticipated. Rated 3/5 for this reason. Probably 2/5 is more accurate since I would have looked for another case, but I don't want to spend half an hour confirming my purchase.

Strudy.
Large enough for big components.
Cons
Screw placement for racks.
Summary
After fiddling with a lame NAS enclosure, i decided to upgrade my desktop, and put my current desktop parts into this case. The installed parts are as follows:

DFI P35-T2Rl ATX mobo
Intel q9550 CPU
4x1gb DDR2
XFX 5870 1gb
1x 1tb Western Digital Green HDD
Samsung Blu-Ray reader/DVD burner
Nmedia LCD display - 5.25"
Scythe KAze Q Fan Controller - 3.5"
Misc card reader/USB - 3.5"
Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro CPU cooler
Kinda overkill for an HTPC, but if anyone comes over and want to game, it'll be more than adequate


The good:

I was a bit tough to find a quality case with the space to fit my long (11.5") video card, but after removing the center HDD cage, there's plenty of space. I was also worried about my 5.5" tall CPU cooler fitting, but it JUST fits, with about 1/4" to spare. Since the center drive cage also had the 120mm fan bracket, i had to sue a zip-tie to secure it to the case, which worked fine. There is a large enough gap for the tie fit fit beside the entrance to the 5.25" drive opening. I may end up taking a grinding wheel to the center cage to chop out a space for the GPU, but the zip-tie will do for now.
After reading many reviews on this case, i was a little concerned that I'd had to perform some acrobatics to put the mobo in once the cages were installed, or vise-versa. This was not the case (pun intended). Once all drives were installed, there was still plenty of room to place the motherboard inside.
Th cages are well-built and slide in quite easily.


The bad:

eSATA would've been nice.
The 80mm fan cords are quite short, and I'll have to use en extension to route it to my fan controller, which is on the opposite corner of the case.
The screws that fasten the drive cages to the case are tucked under teh front lip of the inside - even my little girl-y fingers were to large to fit, so i had to use needle-nose pliers to get the screws in and give a quarter-turn to let them sit long enough for me to shove a screwdriver in there.
Since i took the center cage out, and Am occupying two of the three remaining 3.5" bays with the fan controller and card reader, i am only able to fit one HDD, which is okay, but From the orientation of the holes, I was forced to mount it up-side down, and with only one set of screws. The aforementioned 3.5" components are of regular fit, so I'm not sure why I wouldn't mount the HDD properly. Though luckily, i was able to mount the fan controller back a bit so the knobs didn't protrude out the front, still allowing my access and to close the front lid.
The lid itself is nice enough; when dropped, it glides down smoothly, and doesn't slam, which is nice. Removing the solid steel (weird) plates at the front corners allows one to remove th door, if desired.
Since I'm still waiting on a PSU, I'm not sure sure how cool it will stay. But with a 120mm fan in the center and the two 80mm fans in the rear, i expect airflow to be sufficient. Though i did order two higher-quality, silent fans for the rear 80mm's. I also ordered a second 120mm silent fan for the right side, but I think my CPU cooler will be in the way. But once again, that cooler is pretty big, and I'm surprised it fit at all. I assume the airflow will be lessened by keeping the door up. I will update   this once i get it running.
Ya, I'd recommend it. Unless you want a long video card AND more than three 3.5" components. It still gets 5 stars.
EDIT: No button speaker. No thumbscres at ALL. Both items are dirt-cheap, so why not add them?

Eupdate  2 : Okay nwo that I got a modualr PSu in there, it does, indeed stay cool. As cool as in my HAF 922, with the case fans at around 40%

Pros
Good looking, solid construction, good looking
Cons
Drive installation can be tricky
Summary
Overall, i love this case-it looks great in a component rack and isn't as distracting as many of the fancier cases out there. Drive installation can be tricky when trying to align the blanks with each other and depending on your mobo layout, wiring and cables could get a little tight.

Pros
Very nice to look at and sturdy. Fits full-sized PCI cards, etc.
Cons
It is a little cramped; fitting the mobo in there is a little tricky. Also doesn't appear to have built in speakers, so you don't hear the start-up beeps.
Summary
Overall, this is a great HTPC case. I've had for a little over a month and I love it. The install was a bit tricky because the mobo barely fits in there. Also, the RAM slots are right next to the DVD driv, so it can be a little tricky to get the drive in and out (or even the RAM modules, you have to unplug the SATA cable).

However, everything fits and it looks great; doesn't sound too loud. The included fans seem fairly effective, although that probably depends on what you have in it. I like the front fold-out cover.

-Instructions
Cons
-PSU cables may not be long enough to reach mobo (4pin)
-Large Gcards cards barely fit, and block the HDD bay completely (HD4870)
-Airflow isn't that great (only 2 fan spots besides the included 2).
Summary
I've had this case for about 5 days now running the follow components.

Gigabyte EP45-UD3L
E7400 Core 2 Duo
Sapphire HD4870 512 GDDR5
4 gigs (2x2GB) G Skill PC2-6400
OZC Modstream 520
WD Caviar Black 1 Terbyte hDD

The case is stunning to look at, and completely blends in with my home theater system (looks like a 7 channel power amp). The entire front is solid brushed aluminum and the door is weighted, and drops nicely (doesn't slam). All the drive bays are removable and easy to install, but are not tool less in their design. The PSU mounts on the left (bottom if standing upright like a normal case) so cable length will be very important. My modstream 4 pin Mobo connector just barely reaches, and there isn't much room in the case to bundle the leftover wires for the non modular powr supply users. Silverstone PSU's have longer wires so they work well in their cases. I would Recommend a Strider 600 or 850 for this case. The PSU has it's own grill on the left side of the case to pull air in (if it's a bottom mounted fan, with rear exhaust). Otherwise it will pull from behind the 3.5inch cage.

The Graphics card mounts right inline with the HDD cage on my Mobo. There is less then an inch (probably less then a CM) of room between it and the cage, and there is 0 room for the HDD. I had to mount the HDD in the 3.5inch floppy cage. Minor issue, but this is right across from the PSU, and the wires start to really built up down there.

Over all a great case, and silent with the stock fans, even at maximum speeds. There is a Fan mount in the HDD cage, and one on the right side by the CPU. It's a tight fit, but should provide great airflow around the CPU. I recommend having a fairly powerful fan in the HDD cage so it can feed the Gcard cool air.
