I'm not sure if it was an import, but I ordered this case a few weeks ago for my wife's computer. I'll share a little first hand experience. Firstly, the front panel is a little odd. The bottom half opens presumably to allow airflow to the HDDs, but it's a push-click mechanism. And it's rather fragile. One side of it broke, and won't go back into place.

It is very quiet. Absolutely zero arguments there. And the HDD installation is brilliant with the rubber. Keeps it quiet and secure.

The biggest downside however, is while it says you can install an SSD, you really can't without turning the entire HDD cage around, preventing you from really being able to install classic HDDs. It's also a pain in the neck. In the end, I opted to stick the SSD to the side of the case with some black electrical tape I had on hand. It looks nice enough, and does the job. If I ordered it again though, I would probably buy one of those 3.5" to 2.5" plastic mounting converters.

I absolutely love my Silent Base 800 case. Although the 800 looks better, it is a big case. I would have bought the SB-600 if it was available. I filled all fan holes (3x 140mm intake + 3x 120mm exhaust) with slow silent units and get low quiet temps.

About SSD mounting:
#1 - There are 2 SSD brackets on the back of the motherboard tray.
#2 - One can mount an 2.5" drive in the top slot of the HDD cage, upside down.
