  1. Nice case for the price, but the outside is not in my taste anywhere.
    I could buy it if i needed a case for some workstation i rarely use or something never seen just because of the insides.

  2. For that price, I think I have my next case to replace the Lexa classic. Looks to have extra wiggle room that I’m currently lacking.  Definitely will have a paint job in it’s future. however.

  3. Hmm, not quite sure if I like it or not. I don’t like the color, but thats easily changed. Overall not a bad case, just needs some cosmetic upgrades. Price isn’t to bad though. Thanks for the review Greg.

  4. I agree with HCP, it’s not my style, but it does still look like a dang solid case for the money.  Thanks for the review, Greg

  5. The latest retail pricing on this case is now $59.95. It is definitely an excellent value for that price!
     
    Edit: I just finished a review on the Gigabyte Z87X-UD4H Motherboard, using this case for the build. So, please check it out (HERE :^)
