Nice review! I would like to offer some constructive criticism for Chris though.. I'm not sure why, but the first paragraph on the second page caught my eye about shipping. I almost felt like you were explaining that to someone who has never shipped or revived a package. Part of the 4th page seemed a bit out of place too, the parts where you went into detail about the order you installed stuff. If you could go into a bit of detail on if you had trouble installing anything or any troubles I think that would be better. It was only a few sentences, so it wasnt a big just, just struck me as a bit out of place mostly. I hope that didnt come off as rude or anything...

I did like the mention that it was well packaged. The very first computer case I ordered actually came horribly packaged and had the side panel window cracked and part of the metal dented so I've always been worried about cases being delivered.

You mentioned you had some trouble managing the wires, was there any room to route or hide wires behind the motherboard? Thats one of my favorite places to put excess cables or route them around stuff.

I was a bit shocked to see the price was $90 for that case. From the review it sounded like it would be in the $50-$70 range.

Thanks for the review!

Constructive criticism is always welcome.

Could you elaborate on this part, I'm not entirely sure what you mean? Do you mean you only want me to talk about problems with installing stuff, or talk about problems as well?

As for whether or not I had any problems installing hardware, no I did not. Otherwise it would have been mentioned.

No there was not, that's one of the reasons why wire management was a problem. Another reason is because there wasn't extra goodies included to help with wire management. Many manufacturers will include zipties with there cases, which helps out a lot.

I mean I would rather hear about any issues/non issues you had with installing the hardware rather than what order you installed everything. I guess what I mean was it almost sounded like part of a guide on how to assemble a computer.

Aww, that stinks. Thats one of the key things I like about some of the bigger cases, theres usually plenty of room to route wires behind the motherboard tray. I tend to use my own twist ties rather than zip ties (easier to take off and reuse) and tape.

Alright I'll be sure to start talking about those. Thanks for your input.

And you should, but in order to keep the reviews fair I only use what is included with the case.

It's got a tiny side window, but does it come up bite-sized anywhere else?
It's over-compensating for a small window, like an fat white guy and his... well, you get the joke

The performance doesn't quite match that of a $90 case but it does look great, that could bump it up in worth to $90 for some.
