Ed, Essex Complete PC/Tech noob

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Solid construction, plenty of weight, you know its going to hold together

Simple to open and build with

Removable/washable dust filters - Will never build without them again
Great for adding extra fans

Nice and simple for making a great cooling setup + sensible airflow
Simple and sleek design - No stupid LEDs

Price - You cannot argue with the value for money on this!
Bad points:
It is full ATX but I think it is a bit of a squeeze when you start adding big heat sinks.

The PSU sits at the bottom, I found this made keeping cabling tidy a bit difficult because you have to pack everything as far to the bottom/back of the case as possible so as not to inhibit airflow from the front.

I know it claims to be "SSD compatible" but there is no caddy for an SSD, you just screw the drive into the floor of the case right in front of the SSD. While this is a convenient place as it doesn't get in the way of anything else, I found screwing the SSD in and wiring it up to be a bit of a nightmare, depending on the power cable you plug into the SSD you might not actually be able to screw the drive into the floor properly, mine is held in by two screws on the left hand side which isn't a big deal but it doesn't look neat and it was a bit fiddly.

Alex,

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
does the job, well built, easy to use, would be great if not for the quality failure in the switch.
Bad points:
The main switch provided in case did not work, which for a neophyte at computer building like me was off-putting. I still have to start the machine with a brass-tipped biro on the motherboard. Very annoying.

alan, guildford PC gaming enthusiast

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Comes with 2 case fans and space for 3 more large fans and has ample ventilation spaces already in the case. Easy use thumb screws and amazingly easy to take apart and put components inside. It helped me to watch a youtube video review first but once I'd started taking everything apart I knew it was a great choice. Packaging, instructions and spare screw selection were all good.
Bad points:
Not too sure on the front USB slots at the top in the front because wires then hang down over my DVD/CD drive if using those slots.
