Good case for $50. My only issues with it is the space between behind the motherboard tray and the back panel, and also, I'm pretty sure that airflow is o k with this cooler. You can only have 3 intake fans and 1 exhaust fan but i guess that's what you get for 50 dollars. Could have been a little better with support for a 140mm fan up top but oh well.

Aesthetically the case looks awesome. It was the only budget case I could find with a transparent front panel. It can install 3 x 120mm fans or 2 x 140mm fans in the front for intake. It has a transparent side panel and has a power supply shroud to hide those excess cables. The hard disk mounts are very cleverly engineered.

The case does have some issues. It does not have an opening for the front audio connector. There is no opening at the top for exhaust. Cable management is not that great. There is too less space between the back side and the back panel for the cables. The hard disk vibrations spread to the transparent side panel giving out an annoying sound.

Overall though for the price it is a great budget case.

A really Really good case for its price. You have the aesthetics and shape of a mid-range case for a small amount of money. Some edges are a bit sharp but you can't expect too much from the case. Wish it had an ssd mount on the front shroud (although you can easily do that yourself). Back didn't give much room but the curved back panel compensated for it. Overall, not too shabby

Great for beginners or anyone on a budget. If the side was tempered glass instead of plastic it'd be a five star case.

A cheap, but awesome case! It looks great and is very solid. The cable management in the back is not the best but I made it work. The PSU shroud is a plus and makes up for the lack of cable management in the back. The side panel isn't tempered glass but it sure looks like it. The trim on the front is also able to be switched out for different colors so you can make it look better with whatever color scheme you go with.

This case is amazing, especially for its price. It keeps everything quiet inside and is easy to use. The only couple of things that I don't like about it is that the things on the back panel that you take off to install the video card are hard to get off once you install an atx motherboard. I even cut my finger trying to get them off. The cable management is okay but if there was more room, it would have been easier to manage the cables. Also, I can't see why the designers of this case didn't want case fans at the top but oh well. Other than that, it is a great product and I would recommend it to everyone.

The case is great, easy to setup a build inside. It just needs actual glass on the side and it would be perfect.

Looks nice and was pretty easy to work with. Has a lot of space. Airflow is good but can be improved.

Not too much airflow but its good enough on a budget. Wouldn't pay any more than £40 for it personally but even still it looks nice and has a PSU should which even some older and more expensive cases don't have. Nice little diagram on the case for where to put standoffs for each motherboard size.
