-- Chenbro PC61319 Mid-Tower
-- Price: ~$45.00 USD (Find the Best Price)

   Nearly all the edges are rounded, except for the expansion slots. They still break away pieces, which is a cut on the finger waiting to happen.

   The hard drive bracket is removable, a very common feature nowadays.  Most of the time, these brackets remove parallel to length of the case.  I have always thought why manufacturers did that.  Why not just make it pull outwards and towards you? Chenbro seems to think the same way as me:

   It uses one screw to secure itself and the tab acts as a release mechanism.  It was easy pulling it out, but putting it back was a bit of a battle.

   The 5 1/4" expansion bays are roomy and easy to work with.  Unfortunately, these are not removable like the 3 1/2" cage below it.

   Right under the bezel intake are the front extension ports.  Cables are included to re-route your audio, FireWire and USB to the front.

   The motherboard stand-offs are cut from the tray from the factory.  The only downside to the tray itself is that it is not removable.  Not a major problem, but a removable tray makes installation easier.
