Comments, Questions & Reviews:
Pretty Good, but somewhat awkward by Sanity
This casing has an amazing price for what it comes with, and its screwless design makes working with it that much easier, however its the initial setup of the casing that proves to be a pain in the side.
Upon receiving the case you will find that the standoff screws which the motherboard is mounted onto are no already in the case and require that you put them in by hand. Normally this wouldn't be a problem, but in my experience the holes in the casing provided were that slightest bit too small to screw them in by hand, requiring me to go back over each hole and re-drill them to make the standoff screws fit.
Furthermore, if you wish to use expansion cards on your PC then you need to clear the area at the back of the PC. You are provided with plates to cover each expansion area, but each space is occupied by a plate with is welded in place. Removing them requires hacking away at them with a flat screwdriver, a hammer and alot of bending and twisting metal. So I would recomend removing this before installing the motherboard and putting the replacement plates to save any inconvenience in the future.
Otherwise this is a decent case for those on a budget, and 5 stars would be awarded if the manufacturer were to sort these 2 problems, especially seeing as the casing is aimed at beginners.

Expansion Slot area & Standoff Screws by Sanity
So far the casing looks pretty good, but I am stuck, the Expansion card area is blocked and doesn't seem easy to remove. Also the standoff screws have to be screwed into the casing by hand, and they don't seem to fit. Any advice would be appreciated
the stands off usually require a socket to fit because they are such a tight fit, the expansion slot guard (orange things) screw off from the back of the case (3 screws i believe).
