Pros Easy to work with Lots of room for cable management behind MB mounting plate
Cons Some spaces are tight to work in depending on the hardware you have
Summary Got this case last year and overall its a great case. Plenty of air movement in the case without needing to add any additional fans and case is pretty quite overall. For what you get and the price I would gladly buy this again for any future PCs I make.
Pros Sturdy case. Multiple front USB ports. Included fans.
Cons Poor design of SSD mount. Expansion slot covers.
Summary I built my son a computer using this case. Was impressed with the build of the case with a few exceptions. The case design allows for very good air circulation. With the additional fan sites, the computer runs very cool, even with a stock CPU heatsink. I wish the front USB ports included USB 3.0, but I knew that when I purchased the case. Bought a cheap front panel for just over $10 which allowed me to have 4 USB 2.0 ports and 2 USB 3.0 ports on the front. As another reviewer mentioned, the SSD mount on the case is definitely too tight and then tabs must be bent to allow you to install a SSD. The expansion slot covers on the back must be snapped off. One of the main drawbacks for this are that they can not be reused if a card is removed. Also, if you decide to add a card after the motherboard has been installed, it can be very difficult to get one off. It would have been nice if these had been the type that are fastened with a screw. Even with the above complaints, one would be hard pressed to find a better case in this price range. I liked it well enough, that I purchased another one to replace my old computer case that I had kept through multiple upgrades in order to improve ventilation and increase the number of hard drive bays.
Cons Hard to mount SSD on the back of the motherboard tray
Summary This is a great looking budget case at an affordable price. I helped a friend build his computer around this case. Overall the build went well, but the SSD mounting area on the back of the motherboard tray was terrible. It was too tight and the SSD barely fit. It's possible that we had a defective case.
Pros offers great build quality and accessories for only $40
Cons don't forget to connect the powerswitch button to the cable!
Summary this is a great case, it has enough space for full size card and good cable management features. however the pcie card slot covers area non replaceable meaning if you take them off you can't put it back on and dust would get inside the case.
Cons None (For The Price) Remember to check that the power button is connected inside the front panel (mine wasnt)
Summary I cant believe you can get all these features for this price.
