I'd like to propose reviews of these two fairly-small mATX cases (also available in black and red):

U3 mATX/ITX case

V4 mATX/ITX case

A quick explanation on the maker names: Jonsbo manufacture the cases. Cooltek sell them in Europe, Rosewill in USA. The U3 is just about to be launched in Europe in July, so interest in the case is likely to increase.

I've spoken to Jonsbo and they are willing to consider donating a case for review.

They also have a number of other interesting looking cases, particularly ITX ones. It'd be interesting to see how polished they are to use, how quiet, and what the airflow's like.
The not-yet-released Jonsbo V7 looks especially interesting and is contructed of thicker metal than the cases above.

I'll pledge $30 towards reviews.

Good idea! This is not a good time for donations for me but I'll at least pledge $15 so more people can know about this nice case...

While waiting I'll try to answer any questions potential buyers might have, about the V3.

* Fingerprints are very obvious on the black model, under direct light. I normally can't see them even if I try, it depends on your lighting.
* The PSU is mounted sideways, which probably isn't the best for removing hot air. With a maxed i5-4690K and no case fans, the top of the case is warm to the touch.
* An ATX PSU can certainly fit but I wouldn't recommend it as it would take up most of the empty space and generally make things more difficult.
* Out of the box, the case only supports a row of 40mm fans. It might be a better idea to attach a large fan to the bottom plate, this should be easy if you only use one disk.

And by the way, warning: SilverStone ST45SF-G is a rather loud SFX PSU so let's avoid it... :-)
