If you like it then go for it. I find aspire cases the inbetween in quality. They certainly are not real cheap cases but they are rather standard with not a lot of detail engineering built-in to them. On that note i love my Aspire X Q-pack case. Its slightly flimsy but has a pullout Mb tray that even lets my thermotake blue orb II heatsink clear the case. I replaced the aspire power supply before even building the computer up. I do not like their PS's.

A little rant here.

I am sick of case makers always putting the usb ports.at the bottom of the case where they are hard to get to. I modify most of my cases to have usb ports in the place of the floppy drive right in the center of the case. When will these people get it about putting them in a nonfunctional area.

rant end.

I have an Aspire X-Navigator (one size smaller? than yours I believe) and I love it. A lot of people wrote reviews that the front door was flimsy and the thing was too much plastic. If you're careful with your computer (like you should be) then it's not a problem.

I know my case has 5 fans in it (none of which have been replaced yet) so it's quite loud but not at an obscene level. It got a lot quieter after buying a new power supply. The lights on the cases are nice as well. There are LED's on every fan and there are 4 super bright LED's on the front so this thing stands out in the crowd of those without lights.

Another feature on mine that I love is the the front based CPU and Hard Drive display that tells you how hot they are. This is really handy to know when right next to that, you have a fan control knob. These are both great additions to a great case.

I love my case because of the big window, lots of space, and just it's look in general. I see nothing wrong with Aspire at all.

Im not a big fan of Aspire cases mostly for all the reasons SRX mentioned as cases from Antec and Coolermaster(my preffered brands) are always solid with all the little extras like good quality drive trays and racks with finished edges and easy to use features, they also dont put USB ports on the bottom which i agree is stupid but not usually a problem in quality cases as they dont put them there.

On a personal note i often think the styling is tacky on alot of them and the PSUs have never been considered good but im not a fan of PSUs with cases i would rather buy one seperate. So Aspire never a first choice, first choice would be an Akasa case but they are hideosuly expensive then i would get an Antec as they are always impecable quality and the coolermaster as they are decent quality and look pretty good.
