    Doesnt look bad, but its a bit plasticky still. Never seen their cases in the flesh, would like a hands on before considering.

    This is a nice cheap mid tower case. My only problem with this is the lack of space for cable management, especially if you have a non-modular PSU, and the HDD drive tray is unremovable so it won’t fit a really large graphics card such as a Gigabyte GTX 970 which is around 300mm. If only the upper half of the HDD drive tray can be removed, then this would fit in any graphics card.
