Score 8.0/10
Good points:
great little case for an excellent price.
accepts a mini dtx motherboard.
uses 120mm fans in front and optional mid.
thumbscrews for the body and pci covers.
Bad points:
rattly hard plastic feet.
the tiny side fan is badly positioned so almost no airflow from it.
no dust filters (they aren't expensive even a fixed one which cant be removed would be nice and uber cheap).

Good size without being too limiting. Can fit top end gfx cards.
Fits nicely next to my av system. Cheap.
Bad points:
Bit of a squeeze. Low profile coolers needed. Not able to remove the hard disk cage ( I mount a water cooling system there)

Mark, Berkhamsted, Computer techy 10 years+

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I bought this to use as a file server only, the motherboard I installed is a GIGABYTE E350N and fits perfectly I installed 2X 1.5Gb h/drives in raid 0 and 8 Gig memory and arrived with a 500 watts PSU, more than enough for what I want.
This is an extremely quiet and compact case, Ideal for my use even with my fat fingers...lol.
It also comes with a 20 pin usb 3 connector unfortunately my motherboard didn't, still you can't have everything...
This case is Quality built in my opinion and ideal if space is of a premium, and is stackable too,
One of my better buys I have to say.
Bad points:
Not a bad point,
but This case will only accept Micro atx boards up to a max of 8" wide, and will only be able to use first 2 of the m/ board slots and a standard height CPU fan as the PSU is directly over the top of the CPU, as I said these are not bad points, so if you are looking to build a high end computer this is not the case for you, having said that, it will accept a high end g/card up to 30cm long, but you will have to upgrade the PSU and there is provision for a low profile water/fluid cooled CPU cooler as there is a port on the back for cooling pipes if needed.
All considered a good all round case

Charlie, Soton Bearded, loves building systems!

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Can't fault build quality, Excellent adaptor included for screwing in mobo standoffs, 2x 2.5" caddys included plus front 120mm and rear slim 80mm fan on bracket (I didn't use that for basic i3 ITX system).

Be aware that PSU protrudes from rear of case by 25mm or so.
Runs pretty quiet
Bad points:
Wider and lionger than shuttle cases. Could loose the optical drive slot and mount drives over mobo as per shuttle or aopen cases to reduce overall size but this would probably compromise space for meaty offboard GFX cards!
