    It is a good case, just not a great case.

    Pros: Roomy I got it for $60. You can probably find better cases but I found this roomy for my needs.

    Cons: Short audio header cable Short front panel indicator header fan switch: ugly green PCB, bad location, ugly short wiring case fans: 3 pin and will require a molex connector to power them. Wished they were 4 pins so the motherboard could control them. No quick release trays for drive bays--screwing them in would reduce vibrations, I suppose. Removing front case panel requires you to remove your CD drives if you need to clean the vents, filter, or replace/add a fan. Rear motherboard SSD mounts are great if you don't ever plan on removing your SSD after initial install. Otherwise, you will need to remove your motherboard to access the screws securing them. No filters or covers for unused fan vents.
