5* great case
Reviewed by Anonymous on 10/03/2012
brilliant case for the money, only problem i had was the front 5.1/4 inch bab panel came off but it makes no difference to the function so i can't complain.
5* Great Case

Easy case to work with and for that price it cant be beaten!

If your wanting a budget case then go no where else for one.
4* Great value case!
Reviewed by Evan Wilson on 02/09/2012
A great overall product, though the box looks a bit cheap, the case feels quite cheap, and the cable management (as others have repeatedly said) is non-existant.

That all being said... this case costs the same as dinner in a decent restaurant, and houses your components whilst allowing them to look great. It has numerous options for cooling, fashionable and functional filters over the various cooling entrances.

I love that the entire case is black, and the blue LED looks decent. It has enough room to clear my Xigmatek Dark Knight cooler, and then some, and I have had no real issues with cable lengths, just simply that there's nowhere to route cables effectively.

Another great attraction was the tool-less design. Whilst the locking mechanisms feel a bit cheap, they're easy to use, and get the job done, looking good in the process.

All in all, and all-star performer for the price.
4* cable management!!
Reviewed by kikassridec2 on 03/09/2011
a real qood quality strong case which can accomadate all size of mobos! as mentioned in the other review had to purchase a power supply pin adapter as it was not long enough to reach mobo but only cost me £2 ebay but biggest prob is cable management part from that looks the bizz and well happy with the size and looks of this case
3* PSU problems
Reviewed by David Jackson on 08/04/2011
Case is fine but the location of the PSU means the power leads on standard PSU's do not reach the motherboard power conectors it would have been useful for the designer to have measured up first
1* Poor Quality Components
Reviewed by Rocky on 19/03/2012
This case is basically OK, largely what it asys on the tin, except in one very important respect, the main 'on' switch has phisically disintegrated after less than 18 months use, i.e. past warranty, I'm having to replace it. I'm suprised that a well known brand can be undermined by a very poor component.
