1 out of 5 eggsGood deal, but out of box failure

This review is from: Rosewill CHALLENGER - Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Three Included Fans - 1 x Front Blue LED 120mm Fan, 1 x Top 140mm Fan, 1 x Rear 120mm Fan - Two More Optional Side 120mm Fans Supported

Pros: good price and features

Cons: wouldn't post. went through a bunch of troubleshooting and finally figure it out that it was the power switch. Was able to disconnect the switch and just hot wire it. I guess I'll have to reach out to Rosewill to get a new switch.

2 out of 5 eggsBad USB ports and customer service

This review is from: Rosewill CHALLENGER - Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Three Included Fans - 1 x Front Blue LED 120mm Fan, 1 x Top 140mm Fan, 1 x Rear 120mm Fan - Two More Optional Side 120mm Fans Supported

Pros: Nice, solid case, with many things I like. Esata on front panel is real handy, and few cases have one. I have generally had good luck with these cases.

Cons: One of the front USB ports didn't work when I received it. I talked to Rosewill support, and instead of returning the case to Newegg, they assured me they would send a new USB harness forthwith. That never happened. Of course, it's well past return time for Neweg. It goes without saying, I am (expletive). Some weeks later, the other USB port failed. And then there was none! - working on the front panel, that is. It's really problematical to be without USB ports on the front of a case.

Other Thoughts: It's incredibly frustrating, dealing with flakey people at flakey companies. Hard to find one that isn't! They find all these slick ways to rip off the customer, like promising to take care of something, so the customer allows the return window to close. Problem solved, without costing them a penny! It will be more difficult for another company to gain my trust again, but impossible for Rosewill. If I ever find myself in this position with them again, it's going right back. Unfortunately, I have liked some of their stuff in the past, but now I know they can't be trusted, it's unlikely I will buy from them again.

5 out of 5 eggsGood and solid cheap case, good airflow, lots of feature

This review is from: Rosewill CHALLENGER - Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Three Included Fans - 1 x Front Blue LED 120mm Fan, 1 x Top 140mm Fan, 1 x Rear 120mm Fan - Two More Optional Side 120mm Fans Supported

Pros: - 3 FANS / 3 ventilateur
- Airflow is very good / La circulation d'air est bonne
- Feels solid / Ca l'air solide
- Cable management is not bad / La gestion des cables est pas mauvaise

Cons: - Fans are meh... Front one is not even turning on startup, screw are prying the case and the fan hit the corner. Has to loosen the screw to avoid weird sound. Rear FAN is making noise on higher RPM... Well don't buy this case for the FANS lol. / Les fans sont bof.. Celle du devant ne tourne meme pas au démarrage, les visses font plier le plastique et les palmes accroche le bord. J'ai du les mettre plus lousse pour éviter un drôle de bruit. La FAN arrière fais un bruit quand elle tourne plus rapidement. N'acheter pas ce case pour les ventilateurs.

EDIT : ROSEWILL SEND MY 2 NEW FANS FOR FREE. THEY HAVE AN AMAZING SUPPORT AND IM UPGRADING MY REVIEW TO 5 STARS !

Other Thoughts: I'll buy 2 news fans, i already bougth 2 new for the side, so i just added 20$ to that price. Honestly it's not a bad case but rosewill should upgrade with better FANS

EDIT : Thanks rosewill for sending 2 new fans

4 out of 5 eggsGreat little case but not perfect

This review is from: Rosewill CHALLENGER - Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Three Included Fans - 1 x Front Blue LED 120mm Fan, 1 x Top 140mm Fan, 1 x Rear 120mm Fan - Two More Optional Side 120mm Fans Supported

Pros: Fits components easily. Drives mount quickly. Nothing that hasn't already been said by hundreds of others.

Cons: The front audio/mic ports are somewhat fragile to repeated inserting and removing... I'd estimate after about 100-200 they'll start to wear out and no longer work. The front fan is the first to go which is first evident by bearing noise. If you don't use these two components you should be fine. The front USB ports have withstood my abuse just fine.

Other Thoughts: Nice, small case. Full tower cases are overrated and just take up a lot of space without accomplishing much in many cases.

5 out of 5 eggsGood case for the money

This review is from: Rosewill CHALLENGER - Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Three Included Fans - 1 x Front Blue LED 120mm Fan, 1 x Top 140mm Fan, 1 x Rear 120mm Fan - Two More Optional Side 120mm Fans Supported

Pros: I love the fact that it came with three fans and all help to keep dust from building up inside.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: To be honest, I really don't see what everyone is complaining about concerning this case. I haven't had any major issues with it, especially any bending. what are people doing with these cases exactly? It's not hard to keep them from dropping and what not; just sayin.... Anyway, I'm satisfied with mine.
