We received our replacement chassis which we were told would be a retail mass production unit, and as mentioned above, it still contained the spelling errors of the original, the misaligned USB 3.0 ports, but fortunately, did not catch fire.
In conclusion, aside from the defects, the chassis has some glaring design issues: how the 5.25” drives are installed, the cheap and annoying dust filters, and the VGA stabilizers that only reach the longest of cards (GTX 690, HD 7970, and some mfg overclocked custom cards). Other than that, the chassis is standard and sturdy, basically a run of the mill chassis with decent looks and feel (again, ignoring the defects). However, at an MSRP of $129.99 and an actual retail price of $89.99 on both Newegg and Amazon, even if the chassis was defect free, the MSRP would still be ridiculous, and the actual retail price would still be well beyond what it should be.
If the chassis were defect free, and the design flaws were resolved, we would recommend this as a great chassis with a $60 or possibly $70 value, depending on the implementation of the fixes. However, until those issues are resolved, and the price is dropped significantly, we recommend against the purchasing an MSI Stealth, when there are much better options available in the same price range.
