This looked like a steal on Newegg. Was originally something like $45.00, but there was a $25.00 MIR advertized. Had a blue fan and good number of air vents so I went for it. But I found that I have two issues with it...
1) The "tool-less" HDD install bracket things are stupid as heck. The hard drive is not securely mounted. Has a lot of jiggle room. Also doesn't even go as far forward into the case as I'd like, so that means it's taking up room where (eventually) a video card might go. I just want screws, really.
2) The metal structure is really lacking. The case overall seems sturdy enough, but it really shows when you check out the tabs on the side panels which help them stay on the case (see pics above). These things are SO flimsy. Matter of fact, when I was going to bend one of them just a tiny bit to show how bad they are for the photo, the tab just broke right off! That, to me, is just horrible. I compared it to a stock Dell Inspiron case I have and the tabs on the panels there don't even budge. So, major lack of metal density. Not very happy with that.

For what I bought it for- this case is good. I like the cut outs for access to the back of the CPU mount on the inside panel. My USB port on the front is having connection issues after 4 years, but that is my own fault for not taking care of the detailed cleaning.
