They are drastically different in exterior looks. I love my 500r but there are some issues with them. The biggest 2 are 1) the fan controller only works with the stock fans, unless you mod your connections and then the led switch doesn't work and 2) people think the top supports water cooling but you can only fit thin rads < 30mm up there and still get the top on. Other than that its a great case for the pice, super easy to build with, a lot more space than you expect from its size, and tons of fan options. I've never seen the 410 in person so maybe someone that owns one can chime in on it.

I think i will go for the 500r it looks like it has more airflow and and more robust feel but the Phantom 410 looks good
