Very inexpensive. Small size for a normal case using a ATX power supply. Worked well for a Supermicro A1SRM-2558F uATX motherboard. Attractive, very lightweight, front panel LEDs small and not too bright. Power LED is blue, disk LED is red. I used this for a firewall appliance that did not need any add-on cards. It worked out well. Holds 2 2.5", 2 3.5", and has two 5.25" external drive bays.
Somewhat cheap 3 wire, 92mm rear case fan probably blows more air and is noisier than will be needed for the computer hardware you put in here. May be fine with speed control that can modulate it. I had to replace it with a 4 wire PWM fan to work with my mobo speed controller. Fit is not great, it actually takes some fiddling to remove and reinstall a cover. Limited use for a small NAS due to lack of drive mounting options. This case is nothing like the quality of an Antec Solo. I would give it 2 stars on an absolute scale, but at this price it is a good value and has a place.
Consider replacing the 92mm case fan with a PWM model. Arctic has a F9 model which looks appropriate.
