This is a decent budget case that should be considered more for its aesthetic looks than its function. The inclusion of the 120 mm case fan is an excellent touch that begins to outweigh some of the case's flaws.
The screwless drive mounting system is rather unnecessary and certainly not a feature on which to base buying this case. The materials and time used to develop this method would have been better spent on improving the inherent air flow of the case.
The pre-cut openings in both side panels could have been avoided and made for a case that at least would have received high marks for being an excellent modding opportunity.
The case is aesthetically pleasing and the curving front bezel with the tasteful faux chrome does make a very nice looking case.
I would gladly use this case for a standard workstation or low-powered system, but not for any of my prized hardware.
