Default NZXT M59 Mid-Tower

The value in PC components today is fantastic, with the chassis being no exception. With its M59 mid-tower chassis, NZXT proves that value doesn't have to mean cheap, as this one is packed. It features a cool design, LED lighting, features usually only seen on higher-end models, and of course, a $59.99 USD price-tag.

You can read Bill's full review here and discuss it here.

I tend to agree... I don't like the front panel design at all. On the other hand, I have a friend that liked the case so much, that out of NZXT's entire collection, that's the one she chose to get for her upcoming PC build (before she even knew the price), so there isn't one design to suit us all, that's for sure.

To be perfectly honest, pictures do not do this case justice.

For the price, I could really like this case. In the review the SilverStone is a cooler box but the best price I see for it is $163

That's just it... huge value for the buck. I'll be hands-on with the same model chassis in the coming weeks, so I'll be able to add my own two cents at that time.
