Good buy but a bit flimsy
on November 26, 2012
I got a great deal on this case about nine months ago, and I'm pretty happy with it. It's reasonably attractive and airy as well as roomy: it has plenty of room for extra fans, hard drives, and optical drives, etc. It also has nice cable routing, and I like the easy-to-remove side panel's "thumb screws."
Unfortunately, the connector the front USB and audio I/O panels is pretty flimsy; I could tell this immediately the first time I plugged in a USB device. The panel just gave too much, and I'm worried the circuit board behind it might dislodge or get damaged. I'm keeping an eye on it, but it hasn't given me any problems yet.
Bottom line? It's a good buy for the price range, but you may want to do some research on that connector on the front panel if that worries you. I'll comment back here if it breaks with details on that and customer service.
