This case was a kit and purchased as a curiosity thing. I needed a case for some mic stands and was not too concerned about hardware or longevity. I wondered just how....inexpensive....and hard it would be to put together at this price.
I actually built a similar but larger case for some lighting on my own and the price was about the same although time was obviously more extensive.
Let's see, the good....the case went together with no problems. All parts were included. For the most part all the predrilled holes were in alignment.
The bad....cheap. Though the predrilled holes were properly aligned, this does not necessarily mean this concurred with panel alignment. I have a couple of gaps and of course there is no extrusion so the gaps show.
The measurements of the box do not include the hardware. i.e., handles and locks which are externally mounted and can add as much as 2" to the external measurements.
The covering is not too durable and I have already nicked it a couple of times.
Time will tell how long this lasts and is is NOT recommended for true touring applications where the hands don't care.
None of the "bad" stuff really mans that much to me as I'm not picky, merely needed some quick storage/protection, and I take care of my stuff better than most.
Bottom line, I'm OK with this piece.

Once again, you almost get what you pay for. I can't complain too much for what I got, but the product wasn't clearly described. Not so exacting pictures and vague written descriptions led me to believe that this product was more than what was led to be advertised. To be specific, the casters are mounted directly to the 1/2" wood of the case itself. No caster board, just the shock of every bump going directly to the case itself which will cause the bottom board of the case to easily rupture if loaded down heavily. Secondly, the top is not hinged, which I find another major flaw in the design. The top on my case doesn't fit quite right and I need to press down on it hard to get it to lock. Why they didnt put a hinge design on it completely baffles me. I find this product lacking in quality while still demanding a significant price.

found this case on Google and was amazed how easily it went together. Heavy duty isn't the word. The price.......incredible with the free shipping.
