The two reasons I got this case were looks and price. For my first build that's all i really cared about so in that respect I'm very happy with it. At the same time, the price does reflect the build quality which I can only say is good enough. The side panels are a bit of a pain to get on and off and feel flimsy in the process. Also cable management is hard. There isn't much room behind the MOBO so if you want the other side to look clean, you're gonna need to apply some force to get the back panel on. While there is plenty of room for long GPUs, i'm not sure there's room for SLI/Xfire because of how close the bottom of the MOBO is to the PSU. However if you can afford 2 GPUs you probably aren't looking at this case.
Pros: roomy, nice exterior/look, lots of expansion, cushioned mounting points, lots of air flow, comes with two large, quiet fans, cable management is easy.
Cons: expansion cage for 3.5" drives riveted into place, brittle feeling plastic, paint very thin on interior, some minor scratches around screw holes
Quick take: great for the money, goes well with black or white hardware, worlds of expansion options for internals and cooling.
I was actually pretty impressed for the price of the case. Cables can't be routed behind the panel that the motherboard is mounted on, though, so my cable management was garbage. Everything still runs cool, though, so it's all good.
