Pros: Price, weight, external size, performance, appearance

Cons: No dust filters, complicated cable management.

This little case is amazing. I bought it in Amazon Spain at €74 (around $100) for a mod, and it seriously surprised me.
It looks tiny on the outside, but it is incredibly roomy inside. I actually fit a full ATX system with a 360 radiator on the top without much of hassle, thanks to the increased width of the case (210mm). The stock inverted air tunnel works wonders, and can be easily reconfigured to be an 'intake from front and rear, exhaust from top' configuration, which is very good in case you use a top mounted radiator.
The inverted ATX format lets your RAM and VRM heatsinks exposed to the full blast of the air tunnel created by the case, effectively delivering very low temperatures for a case of this size.

The sound dampening rubber grommets are very decently build, almost negating any vibration from any mechanical drive you might have.

Overall an impressive case, only stained by the lack of air filters. But the price compltely compensates it.

Pros: Small Form Factor,Space

Cons: Not All Black. Cable management is hard.

I really like this case. I bought it modded with 2 120mm up top and a fan grill custom made. Also some custom feet. I really like that fact that the case is small yet manages to hold a full size ATX board and cards that are over 10in long. I wish that the bottom of the case had some slots for fans and under the psu there was a grill for the psu fan. Cables are pretty easy if you tuck them behind the HDD cage but if don't want the HDD cage you have no way to hide the cables as there is no room behind the motherboard. (well very little,maybe some fan connectors and a 8pin). Anyways I would buy this case but keep in mind unless you have some modded mounts for fans it runs pretty hot.

Pros: Small and roomy

Cons: Shotty hard ware.

Great case. I must say I am very pleased with it. Packs a ton of hardware for its small size. Only major problem I have with the case is the quality of the screws that came with the case. The threads on the bolts started stripping before the threads in the soft aluminum. They are all M5 and should be easy to replace just annoying that a $100 case comes with such bad hardware.
