      "As a budget case, this seems like a pretty solid choice.  It doesn't have a ton of room inside, but, if you've got a setup that needs more space, you'll likely be looking at a fancier case too.  If you're buying a new PSU, you'll probably avoid the problem I had, as most new PSUs are coming with long enough cabling to suite a bottom mount setup. "

      "The Cooler Master Elite 371 is a solid budget case, just as I had suspected at CES 2011.  It has a classy style and would be a case I would select when building the next computer for a relative or friend on a budget."

      "At a market price of around $50, I think this case can hold its own quite well against some popular cases that sell for twice the price."

At the same time it is priced well at $49.99 providing all of these great features while staying within many users budget."
