Best budget case bar none. There is no debate on this. I am a first time builder and my PC looks like a professional did the job. The majority of the case is steel and at this price point you just won't find another like it. There is a metal bracket inside the PC that hides all of the cables. The PSU cover inside makes your build look even cleaner. A joy to work in with maximum airflow due to drive cages being situated on the back side of the case. Your SSD mounts sit on top of the PSU cover and can be displayed in the window for a nice touch.
I love this case. I designed the entire aesthetic around this case. The side window looks great, the cable management in the back keeps the interior looking super clean and I love the display for the SSDs. I only wish that it came with built in LEDs to light the interior.
When you're working with it, just keep the plexiglass on a soft surface so it doesn't scratch. I haven't had a problem yet, but I've heard other people have. Just pay attention if you don't want it scratched.
Perfect for my needs. Slim, sturdy and cheap. Cable management is very, very easy. Some components are definitely not top quality, screws to give an example. But hey, it's so cheap! Black is matte with a nice texture, not that glossy crap. It does not leave a single fingerprint or handling marks. It's not easily scratched either. Overall, looks very premium despite its price.
All around awesome case. Has tons of cable management and is a very simple and clean looking case
With NZXT You know what you're getting. Great looking, well laid out cases. Although the S340 is their entry level, it doesn't feel like a budget case. Only cutback I can see is the flimsy PSU dust filter underneath the case, it really is appalling. I like the partition bar that hides the cables, and more convenient than feeding cables through small holes. One point to note is that the fans supplied with the case are connected to a Molex adaptor. I found that the fans were too loud connected that way. Therefore my solution was to disconnect the Molex, and use two 3 pin extension cables to reroute the fans to the fan headers at the bottom of the mobo. Now they both run very quietly, in fact the whole rig is almost silent. Final point I want to mention is cable management. Very easy to connect everything you need to, and hide anything you don't want to see. Even the way the PSU slides in and out means that you can run all the power cables through that opening, then slide the PSU in when you're done.
The case is really worth the money. It was €65 and it has some really helpful features. What I love the most, is the abilty to do cablemanagement. I have build a few computers before, but this is the first one with a decent cable management. It has room for two SSD's and three hard drives, with an additional spot for another SSD or harddrive. The con is the side parts. It is made out of metal, which is good, but the glass is really fragile. If you scratch with your nail, it will leave a spot that won't come off anymore. But if you are careful, there are no problems.
Amazing case with great cable management; I have no complaints about this case! 11/10!
Mmmm looks nice
Note: You will likely have to remove the wire covering plate to accommodate larger mother boards
Case was on the components I less concentrate on, but when I saw the AMD Red build that used NZXT 410 Phantom case, I fell in love with but due to budget I've decided to cut it and get the S340 instead. Black and red is the color I'm going for this build and S340 didn't fail to complete my needs. However some corners and edges were poorly painted with matte finish that resulted to paint chip off.
