you can buy some for $20 if you want. but for quality you gotta pay. if you don't want quality there are cheap Chinese cases out there for $20 bucks have fun.
In general a "quality" case will have rolled edges throughout so you don't cut up your hands working inside the case. It will have cable management holes with rubber grommets to keep your cables safe and out of the way. It will have well thought out fan positions to provide good airflow through. It will generally include larger fans with fluid dynamic bearings so it can push more air through your case with less noise. It may also include removable fan filters to keep dust from taking over your case and blocking your airflow (provided you clean them periodically). Some have sound dampening materials inside. Most cheap cases have bare metal interiors instead of finished interiors.

There can be a lot of things that add cost and value to a case. I've built lot of computers over the years. I'm done with bloody knuckles so if a friend wants help building computer and he skimps on the case I let him put his hands in there. I guess I'm just getting older. It's kind of like when you reach that point where you stop drinking cheap beer.

I dont understand why computer cases are soo much. Pressed steel is a good deal for $70? Does it have usb 3.0 breakouts or a card reader. Maybe it comes with a quality power supply. I guess they cost so much is because people pay it.

Nice case. Just a note for those considering a NAS build, the Seagate 8TB drives will not fit in these drive bays as they lack center mounting holes.

I'm seriously considering ditching my mid tower for this. Anyone not able to recommend this thing?

Edit: I'll be putting a 980 in it and I haven't decided on motherboard form factor or cooling setup yet. Probably air. Even though the AIOs looks fantastic in it.

I have a mITX in a corsair cube thing but I want to make that a quiet HTPC and shrink my huge gaming rig into the node

Could you tell me what "quality" includes? Are the bays not cut correctly. All i need is ventilation, and a place to put a card reader. If it were wired for usb 3.0 that would be a plus. Extra holes to place fans or water cooling would be nice. Then all thats left is the extra side door to route all your power cables. Everything is pretty standardized, and the fact they want to throw usb 2.0 ports on a modern case is a spit in the face. So "quality" that you talked about is reference to the steel? Most stuff is made in china anyway.

I have this case as my HTPC and I would recommend it but as a space saver I'm not sure. Basically it takes the space a mid-tower would have and shoved it into the other side. So while it's not as tall as a mid or full tower it gets wider (There's enough space on the other side for 8 HDD and the PSU so you can imagine the size). Also the side panel doesn't come with any of the sound dampening material that the R4 or R5 has though the top does have some type of foam.

thanks. I have a brand new R4 that I was going to use and after your comment I measured my mITX build and the 804 is way bigger. Gonna wait for a good deal on the 304.

For less than $200, all you can buy is probably cheap Chinese cases. This one is just a little better than the $20 ones, no real quality there.

I got it for this price earlier this year and used it for a NAS build. I'm running a mATX server board, Xeon Processor, Noctua air cooler, 32Gb of ram, an atx power supply, 7 fractal fans on low rpm, and six 4TB drives (HGST Deskstar NAS ones). It all fits just fine, stays cool, and cable management is a breeze. It's easy to build in and is definitely worth the cost when compared to its competition for sleek HTPC form factors. If you're looking for bulk storage and inconspicuous design for a shelf or entertainment center, look no further. This is your case.
