Purchased this case when it was on sale, which I still don't regret. I love the sound dampening cushion mounted inside the case, which keeps my computer quiet and the side window to show off my build.
For me this case was love at first sight. I was looking for a case that could last me for many builds. This meant it had to have the size and features I was looking for and a visual appearance that was simple and sleek. I love cases with front panels to cover up the drive bays and windowed side panels so I can show off my hardware, this case features both. The front panel has a beautiful magnetic catch which requires no force to open unlike some mechanical catches. This case can mount up to 6 140mm fans, has grommet holes for cables making it perfect for a long term case, USB 3.0 and a pretty power switch. The dust filters are a great feature and the sound proofing makes a difference on the front panel. All the components are sturdy and have a quality feel to them. If you see this case on sale don't hesitate to buy! Great case in general, especially for the price!
Upgraded from antec 900. Everything is great for this case. Only complaint is the frontal headphone jack is abit tight. I am using Steelseries Siberia V2 and the headphone and mic jack always pop up after insert. I hope it will become better after several weeks of use. Overall, good case for the price(got it for 79.99 on sale). I would recommend it to everyone
The thing that I enjoy everyday is push the power button on the top of case to turn on my computer. I upgrade this case from a coolermaster matx case to give better airflow for the cpu and video card, and it works perfectly. The best case I ever had!

I'm not really sure if the shiftiness of the case is a pro or a con really. On the one hand, it make it seem a but unsturdy, on the other hand with relatively little force you can make the panels line up square unlike a more rigid case that might become permanently bent.
