Perfect size for the components I chose, decent build quality, good value at $45, great value sub $40, not really worth it above $55 or so. The mounting holes for the HDDs and SSDs aren't perfect, but the small amount they were off by didn't prevent me from installing anything. Could use some more preinstalled dust filters. The included fans are pretty quiet at low RPMs and should keep non overclocked components with plenty of fresh air. Cable management with a modular PSU was easy. Front panel buttons and I/O are mediocre, but that's what one expects with a budget MicroATX case.

Nice case with black interior. Went back and forth about getting a windowed case, but decided I didn't want to spend the money on all the bling and matching stuff that always leads to.

Problem: The front panel LEDs are on the top of the case (facing you). They are white and landing-light bright. I had to tape over the HDD light with electrical tape because it was so distracting when operational. Hoping to find something to cover it with that will tone it down a bit but still let some of the light through.

I could disconnect it on the Mobo, but I don't wanna do that.
