Good chassis, but it looks like a cheap one.
And the design is not of my taste. :ouch:

With the One Hundred case being so well done I had high hoped for the second run of the Three Hundred, and I must admit to being disappointed.

Cases are getting so plain this days... Unique/good looking looking cases are hard to find.

It's not a bad looking case but I think they went too el cheapo on the build by not painting inside & forgetting the rubber grommets around the cable routing holes yet still manage to charge 20 bucks too much.

Rubber grommets aren't really found in cases at this price range anyway.

Being designed for the cheaper market -- it isn't too bad a case. The inside not being painted takes it down a notch...

The build quality is good, and there's room for cable management (something a lot of "cheap" cases lack).

While this is true, people also need cheap and plain cases.

I do not think it is a "bad" case. Just when compared to the One Hundred which is the same price and seems to be a nicer case. I have built with both and really like the One Hundred better. Would have thought they would have brought some of the nice features from the One Hundred to the Three Hundred. As for the unfinished interior, this is sad when you realize a case costing $20 LESS, the Gamer One, has the painted interior.

No need to cry over painted interior when you'll probably never look inside it besides when you upgrade or change parts. Definitely not a deal breaker, would be nice but thats just about it.

Like you said -- and if you read the review, the painted inside isn't a deal breaker...it's just odd to not see it these days :P

Like most of you said, it's not a terrible case just rather bland IMO.
