    Got one.
    One of the boys was in a really old case that ended up with the plastic tabs of the front USB breaking out, thought to mod and install another scrap/spare USB module I had but after looking at what it entailed I couldn't justify the time and effort.

    Actually was looking at low cost mid-tower just yesterday and this was one I looked at. It was alright but the Egg price shipping, tax, to the door would be close to $50 it's not that "kind" of case.

    There's some missinformation on the tower cooler height it accepts, Hardware Heaven indicated that up to 160mm or Evo 212 work. While then I had the Zalman Optima page on Egg open to check the height and first review on Egg stated "Easily installed in the Thermaltake v3 black".

    Like that the front bezel comes off and not tethered by cables. Downside the PSU filter is sandwiched inside the case between the PSU and from reviews say you need to unscrew the PSU (that I'll fix) and it looks like I’ll need to get some filter foam to cover the inlet and perhaps most of the unused fan position.

    Yeah it's a deal at $20 but from shipping weight of 12.8lbs, must be only 0.6mm thick sheeting which is too thin for $50.

    Used one of these for a build for one of my kids. $20 is about right for this case. A little too much ventilation.
