Quoted from Corsair Carbide 500R Reviews:
Check out these quotes from Corsair Carbide 500R reviews & previews
"Corsair lived up to their claims about the Carbide 500R's cooling capabilities, builder friendliness and expandability. The features are basic but necessary for a variety of uses. I can easily recommend this case to anyone."
"The Corsair Carbide Series 500R is an upgraded version of the 400R. For between USD 30 and USD 40 more, you get a 200 mm side fan, a three-step fan speed controller, support for a 240 mm radiator, air filter on the top panel, hard drive bays in a two-cage configuration, and support for longer video cards if the hard drive cage is removed. In summary, a very good option if you want these extra features. Otherwise, the 400R remains as a terrific option on the USD 100-110 price range."
"All in all this is a sleek and well designed case. The Carbide series are by no means lacking in build quality. It's the little details, like eg the rubber damped fans, that set these Corsair cases apart from some of the cheaper imitations/versions. The cooling is top notch and leaves close to no options open for improvement. Maybe a bit more silent fans could have topped it all off, but the excellent cooling performance makes us a bit more forgiving."
"The Carbide 500R is an affordable case that sports a sleek white and black color scheme."
"The long and short of it is the 500R is a great case for the money out of the box and 90% of you will be perfectly happy with what gets delivered. The other 10% of you can get your tools out and make yours unique with minimal effort and claim those all important e-peen inches over the stock case boys! Its been a long time coming but thank you Corsair, for your efforts we can Award the 500R the first Gold award since we reviewed the white 600T!"
