Ehh, that case doesnt seem too impressive. The front of it looks like they tried to make the case look somewhat mean and powerful, but failed at doing so.

It is nice that it has dust filters, but it doesnt look very easy and convenient to clean them out. The tool-lless design is nice, most cases seem to have that now.

For a cheap, budget case it may work, but I've seen better looking cases.

are dust filters ever easy to clean? and even with dust filters, dust still ends up getting in, and if it means youre going to have to clean your innards anyway, i dont see too much of a point in the filters...probably just a slight delay tactic.

look, all in all, it seems like a good enough case for low to mid end systems (and of course the budgets), but i think its pretty safe to say that none of us here would have this case pop up as our first recommendation for a case.

Well basically the thing is it's easier to clean out the dust filters than it is cleaning out dust that is spread out all over your fans and mobo and stuff. Not tons easier, but a bit easier.

well as long as im not paying extra for it i guess. however, doesnt this also inhibit the full potential of your fans? i mean those filters seem worse than a case with bad cable management and no filter.

Dust filter is always good. As for inhibiting the workings of a fan, it doesn't inhibit the fans. The filters help out in the long run by keeping the case alot less dusty over a longer period of time. The fan will still pull in air as it needs to.

I forgot where I saw it but I read somewhere that a couple of people use coffee filters as dust filters for their case and it works great.

I sure could use filters on my antec 900 but not too sure about the coffee filters.

The coffee filter I was talking about is the white round one used in those coffee drip machines. They have different size pores so I would assume use the bigger pores one to get better airflow. It works the same way air filter works for your car, air conditioning units, etc...
