I run this case myself, quite pleased, but build quality doesnt feel up there, but it's very cheap.

It looks well in my rack.
It performs.
The only limitation i have is that i cant fit a big ass cpu cooler, but i do run a 6 core in mine, and running smoothly

Nice! I like its shallow depth for fitting into E-centers for use as an HTPC. Also plenty of venting to allay heat issues. PIA about the fan filters though, my house is prone to dust so every 3-4 months would have to break down to clean. Otherwise pretty cool case!
I have come to the conclusion that "FaceBook" should be renamed "FacePalm" :roll:

Nice review. One of my boxes is a Silverstone Lascala LC10 and I've been very happy with it.
I would never die for my beliefs because I might be wrong.
