I have owned dozens of cases, and the Prodigy is by far my favorite small form factor case to date, especially considering the price. I would take it over any Lian Li or Silverstone SFF case I've used to date (mind you, the new SG09 might change my mind).
My only complaint is the power supply -- it is EXTREMELY tight in there and difficult to work with. Otherwise, the case is simply awesome. I am running a Noctua D14 (which requires a very specific build sequence to fit, but no mods needed) and running 4.5GHz with no issues whatsoever.
While not as stable as your typical case, the complaints and speculation about the cases stability are unfounded (and generally propagated by those with no experience with the case). Mine is a LAN oriented rig, and it has been kicked, hit and bumped into without ever toppling over.
