Have to start by reminding you all this case can be purchased for under £35, so it was never going to be perfect. The way the side panels attach does feel very cheap, and space is somewhat limited. Other than that though I think this case is an absolute bargain. All the fan intakes have dust filters including the optional side panel fans. Even though the cabling was quite messy inside the thermal performance was quite respectable considering the amount of hardware we shoe-horned inside the tight spaces inside the case. The test gear really did feel like a well endowed gentleman trying to squeeze into something tight!
If you are looking for a budget case, maybe something small and light to take for a LAN event that can get battered in the back of the car without having to worry too much, then this is definitely a case that should be going on your sub £50 recommended list.
- Dust Filters
- Compact Design
- Front LED Fan lighting options
- Full length GPUs can be an issue with Hard Drive Location
- Side panel fitting is difficult and feels cheap.
