The DF-35 is a unique chassis - massively convenient, but in a swifter, lighter mid-tower size. It starts with the brilliant white LEDs set in variable-speed, knob-controlled Fleet-Release™ 120 mm access door fans. They open to allow rapid access to the DF-35's 11 total drive bays and two Fleet-Swap™ modular SATA interfaces, in a blacked-out interior with cable routing. Two more SATA bays - one external hot-swappable bay on the front panel for convenience, and another floor-mounted inside for internal SSDs - round out the feature set. With full-tower capability and convenience and swift mid-tower size, the DF-35 is the paradox that performs.

Ok I put the white lighting in both pros and cons because that's a personal preference. I just don't like the common blue LED that so many cases have. This case holds everything I need it to, looks pretty decent, wasn't a pain to build in. While the plastic bezel drive bay doors probably wouldn't hold up to more than a light bump, I really appreciate that there are removable filters in front of the fans. I saw some video review where they complained that there wasn't enough room between the mobo tray and side wall to route cables behind there but I didn't have that problem, I think they were just haters. This thing feels pretty solid (except for the bezel doors), good buy for a not-too-expensive case.
The case looks kick a$$, 4 fans, good cooling airflow, and quiet operation. My hard drive makes the most noise. Nice that you can manually control the airflow with the manual toggles for fans.
Purchased on sale good deal, planning to get it for my first computer and good timing it's on sale. Good looking case, nice layout, only a little short wire for the front Mic/earphone, reachable for my motherboard, only a little too short for hiding the wire.
Price on sale. The design is the boom and that is important as people need to realize that your tower is also apart of the decor in a room.This case has the making of a $200.00 case for under $100.00 on sale.
I've had this case for about a month and I couldn't be more happy. The airflow that the fans give at any speed is more then enough for any gamer. The case is WELL built and does not feel cheap at all. The easy swap HD's slots are an amazing bonus to an already amazing case. It looks, sounds, and feels awesome. 5 out of 5 stars on this one!
Overall very nice case but it might not be as convenient as some other similar priced cases. Obviously for 60$ (or 65$ this week) there are no reasons not to buy this case. Great airflow and white lEDs really look nice.
This is a great case. Handles a 5850 with harddrives directly behind it with a little room to spare. Great cooling and decent quality fans. Note, buy an extra fan if you want one on the side window. Top SSD thingy is pointless to me, figured installing the SSD inside was a smarter idea. Overall, a great buy.
This case keeps everything I need inside of it, with nothing hanging out the sides. The SSD bay on the top is great, as are the Fleet Swap doors. One thing to note is the plastic doors are a bit flimsy, which, if you're careful with your stuff, is not a big deal. This case looks beautiful turned on.
