Good quality but design left room for improvement

Strengths of the product

Good build quality. Good looking.

Weaknesses of the product

Very tight fit. Be prepared to grind about 1 cm of the HDD bracket away to let the board slides into place.

Additional Comments

There is no way to slide an ASUS mATX board in. The fit is very tight and the HDD bracket is only 1 - 2 mm away from the edge of the board after it is slided into place. Whoever deigned this case has never physically installed a mATX board in this. The fit is so tight, I ended up having to grind part of the HDD bracket off to make room for the board to go in without breaking anything.

It works

Strengths of the product

Has everything you need to get started, dust filter, easy to connect everything

Weaknesses of the product

Strange way for mounting 2.5" HDD; power LED is too bright and blinds me when I walk by (had to put tape to cover it, but now I realize I can just disconnect the cable for it); my motherboard didn't have USB 3.0 connector for front-panel so I can't use the second USB slot now; front-panel for USB and audio/mic is located on the bottom-side of computer (would make more sense at the top).

Additional Comments

High quality, low cost.

Additional Comments

I have done a few builds with this case and for the price you won't find a better quality case. For a basic build it is fantastic.
