Good butA good case over all. Allows decent air flow for the size, good cable management and looks quite nice.
A few things which may or may not affect you but which may be important.
1. There no instructions for this case(Not terribly important unless it's your first build).
2. If you put an e atx motherboard in to this case half of the sata ports will be blocked because the motherboard sits in a sunken section of the case. It's is easily fixed with 10 minutes and a hack saw but it is something to consider and can be a pain if you put everything in before cutting out the offending piece.
3. The two front fans can't be removed and the front air filter can't be taken out to be cleaned.
Over all a reasonable case for the price, but it does have a few problems.

Outstanding!Having had this delivered just over 2 hours ago i have already moved everything over to this beauty from my old spire draconian case. This case is a dream to work with, there's so much space and cable management (which was very absent from the spire case) is kind of a new thing to me, it all looks so tidy. Now i can grab a high end gfx card and not worry that it may not fit inside the case and get adequate cooling. A dream case, im glad i spent that bit more for something quality.08/12/2011

    Quality Affordable.Overall this is a very well designed cool PC case. The only thing I disliked about the case is that, on fitting the power supply " CoolerMaster V850 the screw points aren't matched to the correct locations. Therefore I could hardly screw only 3/4 screws to keep the PSU solid. Other than that, all is excellent.314 User found this Review usefullHelpful Review? Yes

    To ThomasThomas, in response to your point 2... Thats what the included spacers are for... the mother board won't sit in that space. It will be raised up and you can use the SATA ports.310 User found this Review usefullHelpful Review? Yes

    Pretty goodIt's a very nice, well built case.
    The only real negative I can level at it is in regard to cable routing.
    Basically, you're gonna have to get creative with duck tape (yes, duck) since there aren't many cable tie points around the back of the motherboard.

    Having just upgraded from a Bitfenix Shinobi, I'm disappointed to find the 500r is bettered in this area by a case costing half as much. Still, the 500r is better in almost every other way so what the heck, break out the tape.

    The fans aren't very effective, but they're rather pretty and most included case fans are usually poo performers anyway.

    Well that's pretty much all I can complain about. The rest of it's all good and feels solid.

    In response to Thomas' review: The fans are removable. You need to pop off the front panel to access them.308 User found this Review usefullHelpful Review? Yes

    Fantastic Case I was replacing a very old case and the Corsair 500R ticked all my boxes for a great price!

    I was after:

    Good cable management
    Good air cooling
    Would take large high end GPU's
    Black

    Everything else was a bonus: Adjustable fan control, switch the fan LED's on/off.

    From start to finish had no problems working on this case and I couldn't find a fault with it!

    Good solid build with large rubber feet on the base.

    Just future proofed by case for years to come with the option of water cooling and 8 high-end GPU if I wish :-)
