The case was bought to house a GIGABYTE AMD 990FXA UD3 and also is home to a GTX480
so you know what we are dealing with here as far as dimensions go.

Pros:
- Not too heavy a case (~11 lbs), looks good and is sturdy (yes, I tested that)
- Spacious case - the GTX480 doesn't touch the HDD bays (plenty of room to work inside)
- Comes bundled with big fans 120/140mm (bigger fans = less noise)
- Spacious room for harddrives including dedicated space for your 2.5" SSDs
- Decent cable management system
- Dust trays are a plus for those with pets (including the filter for the power supply)
- Screwless mounts for HDDs

Cons:
- Almost cut my finger removing the annoying 5.25" bay covers (very bad design Rosewill)
- Plastic screws for the side-panels feel a bit fragile but this is a nitpick
- Side-panels don't slide off easily. Strangely though, it's not hard to put them back on.

In conclusion, with the price I paid ($50), this case is a no-brainer. I noticed a day after
I purchased this case that a newer version came out with frontal USB 3.0 ports. Alas that case
wasn't available for Prime shipping at the time of the purchase. I've almost always used
Antec cases because I'd rather spend money on the components inside but after the last Antec (300),
I am pleased with this case.

I was looking for an ATX Mid-Tower that featured USB 3.0 ports on its front panel, had great cooling capabilities, cable management and bays for hosting 2.5" SSD/HDD. I was amazed to find that this tower met all my needs plus more. I found this tower to be an excellent deal for the features that I was looking for. Great price. I am definitely happy that I made the investment.

On another note, if you buy this case, be aware that the PSU is mounted at the bottom of the case and as such you need to make sure that the PSU you buy has long enough cables to reach the required plugs on your motherboard. Also, this case is a bit higher than your traditional ATX case due to the rubber stands at the bottom of the case which ensure that the PSU dust filter has enough room for ventilation; so it might not necessarily fit where a traditional ATX tower would.

I'll give this case 5 stars even though there are a couple of things in my "Cons" list.

I was overwhelmed with the number of mid-tower cases on the market. I did mid-tower research online for a full 12 hours before running across this one. After rejecting so many others I was very pleased to find this one that had all of the features I had on my wish/need list.

As I keep my desktop computer case inside of a nice oak cabinet piece of furniture with doors I have size restrictions for the tower. I have a maximum depth of about 19". Many cases with the features I wanted were over 19.5". When I saw this one listed as Product Dimensions: 18.5 x 7.5 x 17.1 inches I was so pleased. Not only did I find a case I wanted but my hours and hours of searching finally came to an end. But the size listed here and on other web sites is unfortunately wrong.

Indeed the case is 17.1" tall, and 7.5" wide. But instead of 18.5" deep it is more like 19.125" deep. For most people that isn't an issue but it is for me. I can't close the doors of my cabinet without the danger of breaking an SD card which I have plugged in almost all of the time. I purchased a 90 degree AC power cord so I can push the case 1/2" more into my cabinet which will solve the problem. Had the depth dimension been off a full inch or more I would have had to enlarge the cable routing cutout in the back of my cabinet. But in the end the problem is solved.

What's good about this cabinet for me?

Pros:
- A power switch that is front mounted. My old mini-tower had a top mounted power switch and on numerous occasions I would shut the computer down just reaching up to rest my arm or to reach for something on top of the case.

- Three 5.25" front slots.

While a little pricey, it's really not bad compared to some of the high-end cases. As for the layout, it fit my needs perfectly. I especially like the PSU at the bottom of the case so it can draw fresh air in, instead of the pre-heated air inside the case. Heat causes you PSU to be less efficient, and shortens it's lifespan. As far as heat inside the case, there should be very little due to the presence of three large fans (front, top, and rear). The option to install a couple more on the side is nice, but I don't think that will be necessary... even with my crossfired HD3850's. There's 11" of space where my PCI-E slots are located (my vid cards are 9 1/8"), so long video cards have plenty of room to breathe. I could easily fit my pair of HD3870 X2's (10 1/2" x 1 5/8" each) in this case. Cable management is pretty nice when it comes to keeping things neat and tidy, too. The front fan cools the HDD(s), while the top and rear fans exhaust the heat that my video cards dump into the case. RAM sits directly below the outer edge of the top fan, so air will be drawn the length of the modules, instead of across them. I wasn't sure I'd like the tool-less design for the HDD(s), but these things are very tight and secure. Someone complained about plastic screws holding the side panels on... this isn't the case. The screws are metal Phillips screws with large plastic, knurled heads. There's even a slot across the top of the heads so in case you overtighten them and can't unscrew them by hand, and you don't have a Phillips screwdriver, but you DO have a dime in your pocket... you're good. All in all, I am extremely happy with this case. If you're looking for a well-built case that's got plenty of space for your components and good airflow to keep things cool, this is the case for you.

PS: I ordered it on 9/19/11, and it was delivered by noon on 9/20/11! That's AWESOME!!!
