It's not bad but it's not great, nor is it popular. To give you an example of its popularity, there is an open box Spedo at the N. CA microcenter for something like $67, and it's been unsold for MONTHS.

Again, it's not bad per se, it's a nice full tower so lots of drive bays and space. Don't expect to use the "cooling compartment" or whatever gimmicks are advertised with the case, as people report it actually results in worse airflow. And I believe any normal sized coolers interfers with the side panel fan. But otherwise it's decent.

Though I would recommend spending similar $$ elsewhere on a better case, unless you absolutely require a full tower at low cost. If it's just a fun little weird project it's not the worst idea in the world.

Don't waste your money dude, that case is garbage.

it looks okay man, not that bad, not that good, You might have to do some modding to better the cooling on that...

personally I would not paint it.. trust me, keep it clean and classy. Or just get a silverstone.

Bottom line, if the price is right, it's a nice full tower so lots of drive bays and space...good space + modding = good cooling...go get it..

edit - just noticed its a thermaltake.... that sucks.. not worth the $200 imo

Looks really cramped in there. Plus the side fan looks horrible
But with a little modding i bet you could fit some serious radiators in there.
