    Not bad. I like the option to use glass or not for the front. Not a fan of all the cases that are all glass up front.

    That thing is hideous! I wish CM would go back to what made them famous rather than catering to a trend.

    Yea :/. I wish they'd bring this case back with modern ports/internal layout. Would be awesome.

    Looks ok but I don't like the giant sized Rainbow Brite LED fans in the front.

    Also is there a front filter? I doesn't look like there is... and so no sale. I will never buy another case that lacks fan dust filters.

    And $200 bucks? Maybe a little too rich for my taste. I have never dropped more than a hundy on a case. Usually in the $80-100 range.

    Again with those giant 200mm fans... I feel like if one failed it might cost $25+ to replace one.

    OH I just noticed... no 5.25 bay AT ALL in this huge case. Not even a mount for a slim style optical. While I don't use optical nearly as much as I used to, it does happen every now and then.

    This one is very similar model but I guess it lacks the top and front glass? Hard to tell the difference between them. Looks about the same to me, and $89 after MIR which is more my speed.

    on second look, there is def a clear panel in front, not sure if glass or plastic.

    Yeah the CM lineup is a royal pain to figure out what comes with what. The H500P is the older model, not well received by reviews and yeah thats a clear plastic panel in front with no air flow except the sides. The MC500, 500P, 500M etc. are the newer models with mesh options. Mastercase 5, 5Pro are the older models with mesh front for airflow.

    I kind of like the dual 200mm fans on the front but yeah - trying to figure out their product line is not intuitive.
