Looks totally awesome, and it was easy to build in. The airflow through the front is sub-optimal. Taking the front cover off lowers my CPU temps by nearly 10C. (I'm using a front-mounted 280mm radiator)

Good and smooth looking case. I only wish i had a GPU power cable cutout.

Looks very nice. Very spacious inside, allowing for superior cable management. I like the RGB LED lighting effects, and the optional RGB LED strip to complement the case lighting is a great addition.
It's a fingerprint magnet. Break out that microfiber cloth and rubbing alcohol as soon as you're done building.
Only negative I've encountered is the front air intake. The channel for air to run through is very small. I have a AIO radiator attached to the front, and I was noticing that my CPU wasn't running as cool as it should. I decided to take off the front panel to see if that made a difference. Sure enough, my CPU temp dropped 9C while under full load. Might be a better idea to mount AIO radiators on the top, as the airflow in the front just isn't quite there.

pretty good for a low power low-cost build. While it has space for dual GPU's and the like unless you're planning on a custom loop as well which again you have space for I'd think about something with better ventilation. Collective wisdom is that it gets a little warm under more demanding workloads see the Gamers Nexus Review. Originally had a define C from Fractal which I was in love with until I was taking standoffs off the bottom of my bad motherboard with pliers. Probably my b as a first timer and I may give fractal another go in the future but for now the phanteks is great. For $80 you get rubber grommets, psu shroud, sound dampening, magnetic dustfilters, RGB led, and two fans. Couldn't really ask for more and if you want to spend an extra couple bucks they have a tempered glass version.

Great build quality, great looks but not the greatest air flow, happy with it and will likely use again in more builds.

Beautiful case. Comes with RGB light strip to make your case look nice. Airflow seems to be good but not excellent I would say. There's not too much air flow from the front, so if you're contemplating this case, I'd take a look at the 350X and see if that fits your needs. Other than that, this case works great for me.
Be careful if you have an AIO, because the only real place you could mount it would be the front. And if you have a 360mm radiator, you would have to remove the shroud below AND the 3.5mm hard drive cages, leaving you with only the 2.5mm slots in the back. Something to consider when browsing.
However I don't find this to be an issue for me since I don't plan on purchasing an AIO, but to someone this may be important.
Other than that, I recommend!
