Wow. Just...wow. What a disappointment.
"The motherboard tray comes attached to the right-side panel, making it easier to build your PC."
I would dispute that. It makes it easier to mount the mobo, but that's all.

"Because of this feature, however, you can’t route cables behind the motherboard tray, and the tray doesn’t have a hole for you to access the backplate of the CPU cooler."
So, completing your build, neatly, will be more difficult, and any future mods take up way more time and trouble than might have been saved mounting the mobo in the first place.

"This case also has one additional 3.5” bay for floppy disk drives that is not opened on the outside, so we wonder what it is doing there."
Yeah, I do too.

"Unfortunately, this case doesn’t come with 2.5” bays."
A minor point, but many cases have at least one.

For $80? Really? When the vastly superior Rosewill Challenger (new version, with USB 3.0 ports) is only $60?
Sorry, I don't see the reason for ANY award for this case. It might be a viable option in the $40-$45 range, but at $80 it is nothing but FAIL.
