as to be expected the case isnt the thickest or strongest out there and the power supply is a cheap and noisy unit. but for the price good vale.
The case is a compact size perfect for MATX budget builds and looks good from the front too.

Only thing to be aware of is the power supply, apart from being noisy, is located at the bottom front of the case with the vent facing the floor. could be a problem if put on a deep pile carpet.

No problem, but no mains power lead!

Straightforward case, no problems with it, but be aware that it comes without a mains power lead.

Just bought 14 of these and not a problem for me as fortunately I had a pile of spare unused mains leads.

Design is overall pretty good & mostly a trouble free installation. Packaging is poor with the 1st case arriving damaged beyond use, replacement was fast and easy. Installation tips would be the removal of the I/O shield which may deform the back of the case & the front doesn't easily detach being mounted on 6 plastic plugs. Case front features no frontal ventilation & the DVD flap is best removed. All plastic used tends to be fragile. There is 2x 3.5" bays if the frontal 3.5" bay isn't used. Good luck fitting 2x 5.25" drives, 2nd bay has little depth. You may loose the bottom PCI slot on an ATX board as the power lead is on the case floor. Additional fan mounting on case floor is handy. However it is the smallest case I know of that can fit an ATX board & is value for money. £23 doesn't get you much of a PSU on it's own; if you're after something to just contain parts and fit in a small desk this works.

Pros are it's very cheap, a decent size with nice styling and has a resonably good layout inside. It's also fairly light.

There are a few drawbacks; noise (from power supply and due to thin metal / lack of soundproofing), some of the supplied screws etc. don't fit very well (make sure you have spare stand offs etc) and the ATX power supply only has one SATA power connector, so you'll need an adapter if you have more than one SATA drive.

Also the case fan only has an ATX power adapter rather than a 3-wire mobo controller, so it will only run at 100%. I disconnected mine as the CPU cooler was enough in my case. Finally you can forget about PCI power for your fancy graphics card!

Overall a cheap and cheerful case+PSU - one for the kids PC, but not perhaps your main rig.

For a cheap entry level case this is one of the best I have used, quiet even the case fan which I normally change. Location of the power supply means Atx boards can be fitted in a small case, at this price you cant go wrong.
