Comment:
I got this case on sale and it shipped to my place very quickly. The mounting for HDDs and SSDs is... interesting (maybe awkward?) While not necessary a Con I personally would like the USB 3.0 ports to facing outward not upward. Overall quite happy with this case.

Comment:
Overall I really love this case. Its extremely roomy, comes with 2 very nice 140mm fans, back mounted ssd slots, and a lot of room for expansion. In a couple places the metal did feel week but not enough to be an issue. The HDD bay is a little awkward due to one of the drive types having to have their sata connections 90deg towards the outside of the case. The biggest complaint though would the that the included ssd mounts on the rear panel are secured under the motherboard. In general I understand why this must be this way but it could have been done much better. Overall very pleased and would recommend to others :).

Everything you would get in a 150 doller case is right here people. I took the 140mm fan from the back put it in the front so I have 2 intake fans that were included. I used a hydro bearing silverstone 120mm fan from My other case and used it for the rear exhaust. in the future I might cut a 230mm hole in the side panel for My bitfenix.Im using a 250gb samsung SSD and its mounted on that vertical mount at the top looking sexy as hell. I had to take the sata power connector from My power supply and flip the wires otherwise the cable angled towards the side panel would have looked bad.Thanks to there not being any 3.5 and 2.5 inch drive bays the intake fans can flow freely across My Noctua D14 CPU cooler and video card. I really like that design because Im not a fan of half the case being filled with useless drive trays. I could fit an alpha cool monsta radiator on the front if I wanted too.One thing I noticed is that the front panel seems to be a 2 peace design so if you wanted to replace that peace of brushed plastic with some kind of mesh I think you could. There was only one thing that is annoying but not really necessary and that is you cannot take the front panel off with a dvd drive in place. To clean the filters you can just take the side panel off and use a can of compressed air on the back if the side vents and a vacuum on the front to collect it or just a vacuum and no need to remove anything. Other then that his case is perfect. Wish I could show you apicture of how clean this system looks
