A very nice case with a simple exterior design and a highly customizable interior layout. Despite the size, there are a lot of options for cooling and cable management. All fan mounts, except the back panel, have mesh filters to help keep dust and debris to a minimum. The top panel window is also a nice touch, especially if you add some lighting. I would definitely recommend this case if you're looking for something smaller than a mid- or full-size tower but still want to pack a similar level of power inside.

I absolutely love the Corsair 250D. It's a sexy, minimalist case that is built for a water cooled mITX rig. The fan filters were a MUST and these are easily removable. My case is set up with all fans as intake and exhaust is passive. This insures that I have a positive pressure case and that no dust or hair is sucked in through an area where there isn't a filter.

Everything fits in pretty tight, barely got my 980 Ti in there but it fit. I didn't use any of the fans this came with. Removable 5.25" drive bay and you can take out the unused HDD/SSD bays and route cables through there. I wish they would make windowed side panels.

There are lots of Mini ITX cases out there. Some are large some or ridiculously tiny. This one is just right. Corsair did a great job with this case, taking into consideration of the popularity of AIO coolers. It'll fit their H100I GTX no problem, as well as most full size GPUs.
This is really a non sacrifice case. You can put a large GPU, AIO cooler, full size PSU, and a 5.25" optical drive. You could even build a custom loop in this case with a 240mm radiator on the side and a 140mm radiator in the front, bay res in the 5.25" bay. Can't wait to try that!
The case is well constructed, and light. Comes with 4 fan filters. One for the front intake, 2 magnetic filters for the side panels (nice touch), and one for the PSU intake. It has nice tall feet for those of you that keep your case on carpet.
The optical drive holder is a little tight, and it messed up my paint job on my optical drive. Not a problem for most.
It has a great window on the top panel to see the build. I would like to see corsair offer a version with a full window on the top and a window for the left side panel for builds with a liquid cooled GPU.
The storage solution for this case is great. 4 sleds, 2 x 3.5" and 2 x 2.5". This cage should have a hot swap feature. Getting to the back of the 2.5" sleds was tight, but overall, I like what they did for the storage.

I like small and compact technology. In my mind, technology is sized related: the smaller it is, the more advanced. It's arbitrary, but that's also the inspiration behind a lot of science innovation: make it better, make it simpler, more it more efficient. And, if you've ever moved more than once in your life, you appreciate that less lifting is more happiness. I also prefer the absence of clutter in my home, and having a build that tucks away and is unobtrusive is attractive for interior design.
Without a doubt, a case tower gives you ample room for working in, managing cables, and allowing for air passage and any sized third-party CPU cooler. Since I wasn't going for the biggest, baddest, beast out there, I compact size while maintaining good airflow, dust-control, and potential for future upgrades. What tipped the scales in favour of the 250D were the built-in magnetic-attached dust filters (front intake, both side intakes, and the PSU intake on the bottom), ability to handle any sized ATX PSU, full-sized GPU, and how well it was built.
Overall, it's a very solid, well-machined case, and has been very easy to work with. Quality costs something, and I was lucky enough to get this at a 25% discount.

It's small, sleek and it looks professional. I was seriously impressed by this little thing and it really doesn't feel that small when you're working in it. I was able to route cables easily and install the hardware without much frustration. I also swapped out the main 140mm intake fan at the front with a Corsair AF140 purple led fan. It provides a very subtle purple glow around the edges of the front panel which is what I was going for.

i couldn't imagine a smaller case that still would have great airflow like this one. Word to the wise , if your not building a positive pressure case you gonna need to order a demciflex 80mm x 2 fan filter for the rear of this case for dust protection. Other than that this case is nice and offers lots of tie down points and space to work in. Good beginners builder case for mini ITX form.

A really good case. Mostly comes apart with no tools, although it would be good to have made the 5 1/2" drive bay removable without a screw driver.

This is a great small case. I've jammed a lot in there and it let me reuse my full size ATX PSU. Pretty happy with it, may add some custom graphics. I wish it came in white.

Small size but all the space you need to do pretty much anything but SLI...I would love one day to have a system with a 240mm radiator for my i7 and a 120mm radiator for my GPU...this case is pretty and even with my air build it keeps everything neat and clean.
