The case was also one I went back and forth on. There are a good amount of microATX case options in the low price range but chose this one for a couple reasons. First it came with 2 fans preinstalled (120mm intake and 80mm exaust) which made this case a great deal. Also the front panel has cutouts for air to be pulled in (check photos) unlike the others which were closed off (where is it pulling air from?). This case is made from solid material and didn't feel cheap to me at all with no sharp edges or flimsy material. I was able to figure out some nice tricks to hide cables actually and did the best I could with cable management and preventing them from blocking airflow. There was also a big surprise when I got the case, there was a 2.5" drive mount at the bottom of the case!!! It doesn't say anything about it on the product description page so I was pleasantly surprised I didn't have to buy a converter for the 3.5" bay. What a great case for such a low price. Only con was the ugly cables from the front headers, but there's not window so you don't have to look at them anyway!
I got this case for $22 at Newegg. No one should expect quality at this price, but the case is a great value. It was exactly what I needed for my build.
Came without any damage, 2 chassis fans included, not flimsy, big power button, nice size, minimalistic. Wasn't advertised, but it came with a 2.5" mounting point at the bottom of the case, so that's a plus. There are some major cons, though. One is that there is absolutely no cable management, so you have to stuff the cables in the 5.25" drive bay. Another is that the front panel cables also run through the 5.25" drive bay, which together means that it will be difficult to fit in a disk drive. Since I don't have this, this is not an issue for my me. For the low cost, I am satisfied with this case.
+Comes with fans included
+Seems sturdy enough
-Pretty cramped, nowhere to shove wires
-Front panel is really annoying to get off
