I had two...but mine were all under the $50 USD mark...horribly made. Hopefully their slightly-higher-end models are better made.
i had a cheap atrix once it was quite flimsy but this one looks good

Nah LineError, haven't seen that one. I've never even heard of Atrix until I spotted this at a local Surplus store. I passed right by it at first, but then figured I might as well just check it out. After a little inspection on air flow setup and such I decided to take it home, being able to bring it back if it sucked. And it doesn't. And I've spent on a couple $150+ Antecs and a $350+ barebones from MSI, and I am just as pleased with this case, considering price of course. Nothing on it has that "cheap" feeling you get with most cheap cases.

they're not... same thin pig-iron... same paintjob...

i've grown quite fond of inwin cases over the years.

this design comes with a dozen different front bezels... the drive pins have a metal pin, not just plastic, and the hdd cage swings out...


and even comes with a PSU with a 120mm fan...

the pictures from the review are also terrible...I'll get some better ones when I can find my camera. I'll get some with when I get my new Zalman 9700 LED installed tomorrow as well. I've got a nice blue LED them going. Also, I don't remember it mentioning in the review that there are 4 blue LEDs that light up a clear plexi ATRIX symbol on the front panel that have there own hidden on/off button in chromed plastic. All buttons have a descent feel to for such a cheap case. Doesn't feel like they will be wearing out anytime soon.

Sorry that case looks horrible, the best budget case is hands down the Centurion5

now come on guys, you obviously can't expect Antec quality at this price, they had to compromise, an I believe they cut corners in all the best places.

I'd take this Atrix over the Centurion5 anyday...but that's me. That Centurion5 looks like something I'd put my mom's rig into, too simple for me. And my cases don't need to be built like a tank anyway, they sit in one spot mostly and have no real risk of "injury".

Oh, and to LineError, what's the price on the Inwin case you posted pics of? Looks very nice as well.

Hell yeah... CM makes some great cheap cases... and if they do skimp on the metal, it's on the side panels... not the frame... not to mention with that case the entire front is your intake....

If I had some more money to throw around, I'd be all over the Stacker, black mesh on gloss black, but I'm not willing to spend that kinda money on a case at the moment when my rig need some other things first, like a PCI-E vid card, and either a new mobo so I can 'clock the hell out of my poor e4300, or a q6600 when the price drop comes and then the new mobo...anyway...
