A look at the flip-down front port panel on the Enlight 3101.

At the very bottom, the 3101 provides some connectors, which clearly make life easier. Two USB ports are standard for this case, audio jacks and Firewire are optional. Each wire of the USB cables has its own plug, so that they can be used with all kinds of proprietary USB connectors.

A look inside the Enlight 3101.

As you can see, one case fan is already mounted at the back of the case. This is quite reasonable, as the power supply only has one fan and a few trenches, limiting airflow.

Enlight provides a standard case at a reasonable price that comes without significant weakness - but likewise without outstanding advantages. It is a well-made, standard case for your office or home machine. Yet, power users might want to seek a more flexible model.
