Why not order one like mine,when I got it i ordered 13 parts in all 6 were faulty and the case front was smashed.

What I'm saying Sidecar Sid is you get what you pay for, Ebuyer is cheap I'll give you that but when you get a faulty item have you ever tried to return it? I prefer to deal with companies who sort faulty goods out and Ebuyer is not one of those companies. Even if the case was £5 I still would never buy from them again. I'm sure there are people out there who are happy with them I know the FE is one, but me never again.

Depends how you complain...just had a load of free cables, free delivery on next purchase and my money refunded after ebuyer sent the wrong item twice. Also had money refunded before for faulty goods. They are very cheap for most things!

I can understand your reluctance to deal With Ebuyer given your experience.I personally have used them on several occasions and have had no cause for complaint.

Mind you i have used several online suppliers and to date i have had no problems,perhaps i should chainge my name to Lucky Sid.

If anyone decides to order one of these low cost cases it's worth time out to read the reviews first...:-)

The Atlas ATX Tower bottom right, is a fantastic case (my dughters have a beige one) though I wouldn't be tempted by the pink one.

It's made by superflower, and comes in at less than a £10.

Add a decent Psu, and your off

Some cases can be devils to get into and work on and others are a pleasure to own.

Mine was bought off the shelf five years ago for £31 without even examining it; it has side panels that slide off after taking out a couple of screws on each at the rear, has plenty of working room and has been a pleasure to use.

Ironically, my son told me a few days after I bought it that it was exactly the same as his own case...:-)

As a footnote my favourite budget cases are manufactured by Tsunami.

350W power supply adequate for most budget builds, only one thumb screw to open and
Reasonably sturdy, havn’t had one fail yet.
