I am in love with this case! I was previously using a 460x, which was great but became somewhat cramped. I considered going with a 570x, but it didn't seem like it had enough additional features to warrant changing cases (which is a major pain in the butt... I had to spread it out over two days). This is built on the same chassis as the 570x but had enough new features for me to pull the trigger. The hexagonal design on the front filter of the 460x/570x were a little much for me -- the cross design on this one seems a little more elegant. The glass doors are so ridiculously convenient that I don't think I can ever go back to regular panels -- it's so nice to be able to just open the door to access something inside. The dust filters are removed very easily and the fans are mounted using removable trays, which are held in by two thumb screws -- very convenient. I came from a 460x, which is, in comparison, pretty compact, so, comparatively, this was much easier to build in. I don't think I'd go so far as to say that this was "easy", as I haven't built in many cases and you certainly need to be mindful of the backside, since it's visible through the glass panel (granted, it is very tinted). Because the back glass panel is a door which closes using magnets, you can't just "stuff the panel closed", like I did with my 460x. If you have lots of RGB controllers like me, it can definitely get tricky. Luckily, there's an included cable cover that really helps get the door to close, as well as makes it look much better. There are plenty of grommets and cable tie points so the potential for proper cable management is certainly there, just expect to spend a little extra time.
