Nice-looking case, very solid when assembled. I had no issues with cable attachments. Screwdriver is magnetized to manage teeny-tiny screws.
The included power supply failed on me after a weak of constant use. M/E replaced it, and the replacement is working fine so far. If you need to replace it, get a better one from Amazon. Assembly screws are teeny-tiny and very easy to lose, so be careful. The assembly diagram is small and blurry...look for better instructions on the Net for what pins are used to power the fan [assuming you don't know].
Overall, decent enough for the price. Be prepared to replace the PSU with a better one.

Good only if you plan headless access and no WIFI.
Extremely poor Wifi due to interference from metal case design. Almost like a Faraday Cage. Case design does not allow full connection access to Micro HDMI ports.
This case interferes with WIFI signal in a very big way. Also the case design does not allow a the Micro HDMI cable to fully seat in the PI 4 ports consequently you'll not get video signal. Buy a SMRAZA instead if you don't need access to the GPIO pins.

- It looks nice. Gives your Pi4 a more polished look if you're not into the naked electronics thing. - Quick and easy to assemble. - Sturdy, nicely fitted aluminum. - Fan + heatsinks keep my Pi4 super cool, even under heavy load. - Power supply has an on/off switch!!!
- Possible micro-HDMI troubles. All my newer cables work just fine. My 8+ year old cables can't quite reach the port through the openings in the case.
It's a great little case to keep your Pi4 looking and feeling cool. I have the 4GB model running as a file server with a 4TB USB3 portable drive connected (powered by USB): Average Temps In Case (with fan running): Idle = 31° C Under Load = 42° C Average Temps Naked: Idle = 35° C Under Load = 60° C

None, since it's not useable.
Micro HDMI to HDMI monitor cable won't fit far enough into case to get a signal on your monitor. The case geometry and machining does not allow the micro end of the cable to snap into the micro HDMI port on the Pi 4 motherboard.
This case is a Dud. Get a Flirc case instead. You won't need a fan nor heat sinks with the Flirc. And you'll be a lot happier after you assemble it, because it will boot.
