4 out of 5 eggsGot my $50 rebate

Pros: The biggest thing is I got the $50 rebate. I heard some negative things about not getting the rebate back so I was very leery to buy this. But low and behold it was in the mailbox today. As for the case it's really nice to see the components and what you will have to do to add something new if you wanted to reopen it. Plus you see the fan turning to make sure it's on and running properly. But for $30 you definitely can't be that. I haven't looked to see if they have this rebate still but if they do it would be a real bargain. And for 30 bucks if you don't want to put it together which is very simple you could throw it away for $30.

Cons: I broke a piece of plastic, it was my fault I put one of the plastic hard cases together and then I dropped it. You do have to be careful with screwing the screws in also

Other Thoughts: Also they have underwater computers, where you stick mineral water and put the computer in a fish tank. In stead you could use this clear case as a fish tank and waterproof it with silicone and that would be an awesome computer. Say if you have an old 478, that's working pretty good instead of selling it you can convert it to a real novelty item.

5 out of 5 eggsNicely, nicely...but

Pros: This has room for 10 - 3.5" hard drives plus a dvd drive if you use the extra 5.25" hole, plus the floppy mount. I bought this case to use as a home server/htpc. I painted the inside of all the plexi black before assembly. It matches beautifully inside my audio rack and works well. Fits a full size ATX mobo well. I'm using a gts250 with no problem as well.

Cons: If you're like me a, a constant "tweaker" you might want to reconsider. The way this assembles doesn't hold up well under constant moving with a ton of hardware inside. Not really Sunbeams fault, more my own but just something to keep in mind.

Other Thoughts: If Sunbeam would make this exact case in black and in an aluminum body I would buy it in an absolute heartbeart! There literally is just no other htpc case out there with the drive capacity of this....are you listening Sunbeam? I tend to use the "trickle down" method of storage, and this means all my old drives end up here, and I feel sure I'm not the only guy that does that with their htpc. I'll NEVER live w/o my htpc ever again!

4 out of 5 eggsInteresting HTPC choice

Pros: Kids love it, expecially when paired with the right lighting effects.

8 hard drive bays should be more than enough for a media PC.

Assembles fairly easy, and doesn't get fingerprint smudges on it as much as I thought it would.

Without modding, it has about 10.5 inches of clearance for a graphics card- my GTX 260 fits but just barely.

The plastic feels well made and everything seems sturdy enough, especially for the price.

Supposedly acrylic cases can't stop electromagnetic interference and if placed next to other electronic devices. After sandwiching this case between an HDTV, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360, and a stereo receiver, I've never had any problems with interference thus far.

Cons: Removing the hard drive cages from this thing is a nightmare. My advice is to not even bother putting on the 4th hard drive cage fastening screw (the one going towards the back and middle of the case), as even with proper tools it's tough to get it in.

Also, it's an acrylic case, which means it will get dusty in two months time, and cable managment is a huge pain. My only solution I could devise was to lump all my main power cables together and then place a sequence of velcro cable ties over it all, making it look like one giant sleeved cable.

Don't even think about placing a monitor on top of this case. It MIGHT be able to handle it, but I wouldn't want to tray and find out.

Saying this has 4 fan slots is misleading, as there is a bar that mounts to the top of the case that you can attach a fan to, however you cannot attach this bar unless you are using a low profile graphics card.

Finally,the right case fan blows air nowhere but onto the back of your power supply

Other Thoughts: I bought this case because I wanted a hot looking case that would fit into my entertainment rack, yet still be able to house a full sized graphics card. Plus the clear acrylic can be slick if you are smart about cable managment and lighting.

Going forward with this case, I realize that if one tries to put a larger graphics card in it, there will be problems. Even if you remove the left hard drive cage, the place most mobos place their 1st PCIE 2.0 slot means that the card will bump into the center piece that holds the bay devices.

I plan to get a new mobo that has two PCIE 2.0 slots, remove the left hard drive cage (I don't need 8 hard drives) and place the card on the mobos SECOND PCIE 2.0 slot. I realize that I am likely to lose a very small amount of performance by doing things this way, but any card much bigger than 10.5 inches clearance will NOT fit otherwise.

Finally, this case was made for light up case feet, assuming you aren't afraid of a little drilling :-)

4 out of 5 eggsNice looking with cool blue LED

Pros: Was easy to assemble.. looks good, HIGH cool and techie factor to show off.

Cons: Screws are a little flimsy, or atleast feel so.
The HDDs ( if you want to add or remove is extremely difficult.. need a lot of dexterity ..
some back plate screw nuts will bald threaded (so it does not hold the screws by themselves

2 out of 5 eggsPoor Customer Service

Pros: Strength not too bad for acrylic. This case will provide all the ventilation you need. You can also install a huge number of hard drives if all the parts are there.

Cons: Not all parts were right. My case was missing several of the brass inserts for the screws on the HDD Mount Supports. When I contacted Ryan at Sunbeam's Tech support, he responded right away and said they were going to send replacements for the defective parts. All they wanted was a copy of my invoice which I sent to them. That was nearly 4 weeks ago and I haven't heard from them since. I wouldn't buy anything made by these folks if they won't stand by their products any better than this.

Other Thoughts: Buy from another manufacturer. These guys like to make promises and not keep them.

4 out of 5 eggslovely case

Pros: Full size Mid-ATX case in a desktop form factor
Lots of working space
8 3.5" drive bays! (see cons)
great cooling due to space
Blue LED fans included (4) (see cons)
White gloves included for assembly

Cons: Assembly: case comes shipped "flat" with all pieces covered in thin foam. Great for shipping scratchless, but it takes a LONG time to put together all the parts (1hr+).
Fan location: Fan in middle of case mounts to plastic rail that spans entire width parallel to front of case. In my config, this places this fan on TOP of the proc HSF.
4 fans make this case pretty loud for a HTPC.
Drive bays are not hot-swap bays and entire bay has to be removed to get to one drive. Screws are in difficult to service location.
Dust and Fingerprint magnet!
No LCD display
No Infrared
My unit shipped with no way to attach the front I/O panel/power switch to the front of the case (missing standoff screws and missing power/reset button covers).

Other Thoughts: Overall a very pretty case, but need to blow out and dust with soft lint-free cloth at least 1x/week.

4 out of 5 eggsNot as pictured

Pros: The case has adequate cooling and a very unique look. Comes with screwdrivers to assemble the case.

Cons: The case is not as pictured. The picture shows a 3rd drive bay with a 5'1/4-3'1/2 bay convert plate but that is not the case with the actual unit. There is also a shelf in the middle that is not in the picture

Other Thoughts: Takes lots of cleaning

4 out of 5 eggsAffordable and eye-catching

Pros: Has a very unique look. Holds up to 8 3.5" hard drives, which is very good for a case this size. It's also worth noting that the HDD cages can be easily removed if necessary. The case came unassembled, but assembly was very straightforward and included better documentation that many things I have purchased.

Cons: The included thumb screws are very lightweight and easily damaged. The external 3.5" drive bay cover simply fell out; no permanent cover was included. Who still uses a floppy drive anyway? It would have been better off without this piece cut it the first place.

Other Thoughts: This case includes everything you'll need: Fans, fan covers, extra screws, covers for the 5.25" bays, even a set of white gloves for assembly (I'm really not kidding).
