Color: Black/Blue Verified Purchase
Pros:

The exceedingly low price. While nice and more feature rich (read: tool-less) towers exists, they often go for double, triple and quadruple the price.

Lots of expansion slots
Side window is nice touch
HD audio support
120 mm fan slots (front, side) rather than 92 or 80 mm fan slots (larger fans move more air with fewer rotations, resulting in lower energy costs and less heat generated)

Comes with one 120 mm fan which blows around 44 CFM
Nice looking color scheme

Cons:

Not tool-less
No features for wire management
No front firewire (minor for vast majority of people)
PCI covers are attached by single use metal connector

Other:
Steel pressure pads for hard drives
Power supply slot is located on top rather than bottom
Only three fan slots, no ceiling fan slot
Due to position of hard drive slots get right angle SATA cables rather than flat SATA cables but this common in many cases today

Ending Thoughts:

Overall, I'm exceedingly pleased with this case.

First off, let me say this case does have a little more style than most $39 ones. The front color trim is a nice touch, side windows are almost unheard of on cases this cheap....and it doesn't make your case LOOK like it was built on a budget of $200. But aesthetics aside, it does share a lot with other budget cases. Side panels are EXTREMELY flimsy, lots of sharp edges, and a total of ONE non-LED fan.
Sideways hard drive cage comes CLOSE to being unusable (ends way to close to side panel), I'd recommend 45 degree angle sata cables. With the translucent front trim...you'd think they would have at least sprung for a matching LED fan, instead of the stock black one.
On the bright side, it comes with PLENTY of assorted screws and risers, and all plastic parts are well protected for shipping with a peel-off film layer.
DEFINATELY not up to par with what you would expect from a CoolerMaster case....but a little more than you would expect from other bottom of the line cases.
If you are on a TIGHT budget....this is the case for you. If you have an extra $20 or so in your budget...there are way better cases for a little more.

Update 2014: Although I wrote this review years ago, I see it is still being offered...at $65 now. Back when I bought it, it was an "on the fence" decision whether it was worth the $39 being charged then. Today, I would say no way at $65...not even close. There are a LOT BETTER cases out there in the $65 range. My advice is to keep looking.

Pros: The price of this case (currently <$40 USD) is it's best feature, but not the only one. There is a vent on the front of the case to the sides and underneath the I/O panel. They give you the option to mount a fan on the inside there, but I find it works best as a passive vent. The case looks pretty and clean and seems to be built quite sturdy. Thumb screws from the side panels are very easy to use, especially if youre like me and are constantly taking the side off and putting it back on.

Cons: It might just be me but the front of the case isn't very easy to remove. I felt that if I tried to take it off I might break it. *** This case does not come with a speaker *** (If you're new to buying cases and not sure what I mean by speaker, it's the beeping you hear when you turn your computer on or hold down too many keys on the keyboard at once). I was able to take the speaker from my old case and rig it to a little spot near the I/O panel, but if I had a fan there it wouldn't have worked. The built in rear fan seems like it doesn't do much, but I also have a 120mm on the side that is moving a lot, so it might just be that.

Over-all: Pretty, Sturdy, and cheap. Lacks a speaker, but everything else works as expected. Definitely worth the 36+4s/h I payed for it.

I received my package on 01-14-2010 and to my surprise,it came well packaged.Amazon did an outstanding job of putting the main box into a larger box with ample packing materials so there was no damage at all."EXCELLENT WORK AMAZON.COM".
This computer case is well constructed and sturdy and the material was not in the least flimsy as other cases that I bought for the same money.I like the clear side and will add a cathode case lamp.I have not installed anything as yet.The only slight con is that the 3.5 hard drive cage sits facing out and is effectively blocking the 120mm front intake fan from blowing air into the case.This will not be a problem though as I will be using a Serial ATA hard drive mobile rack in one of the 5.25 bays that will allow me to use different hard drives and a backup hard drive in the 3.5 bay.
Get this case!!!!
