it has to be one of the ugliest cases I've ever seen to be honest. And this is coming from an Asus fan.

Nah, don't like it.

It's pretty big as well, will take up a lot of room.

You guys are crazy. This is the most stylish chasis I have ever seen. It looks like a Ferrari. You guys probably think the the Volvo is pretty nice. I was just wondering if their have been any reviews on this case and what the thermals would be like.

It definetly stands out from the rest. I wouldn't buy it though. I would still get a Thermaltake shark series anyday.

tool less design, rock solid consruction, store your disks in the front of it. and the front I/O (including IEEE)is on the top.. which makes a hell of a lot more sense seeing how cases are usually below you and under the desk

I dont like the "big hips" on it if it didnt have that flare on the side from the front view it wouldnt be so bad because it would be nice and slim. I like how smooth and clean it is though but I would have to say eh because of the bulging sides. The Asus that is.

The one that looks like it has CDs stuck to the front isnt all that hot either :(.... companies need to get some better designers who understand simple design elements more and not try to be so avant garde.

those aren't cd's stuck on it.. you stick your cd's in there.. and the inside of it setup way better than your traditional case.. not to mention total tool less assembly

Are you saying you have a big ass, or just a big hemorroid.

Its not my cup of tea either. Q-Tec does a case that looks a bit like it well it is the same shape.

Looks pretty ugly to me, but so do most products designed in Taiwan, they just don't have a good grasp of what aesthetics work well in the European and US markets.

its incredible, but the finish looks tacky.... notice the left side-flap.. its uneven!.

And the Ferrari analogy is GREAT.... it does resemble an F1 car ... the 2 air intakes in the sides (bottom), 'gull wing door' resembling side flaps, Scarlet helmet resembling front panel... nice.

But I have an issue with the cabinet 'legs' .. thats narrow and tall... eyugh!!

blah, both cases look tacky. It may be tooless or have a nice internal design but if it looks like a piece then whats the point? I'd rather buy an old beige case and mod it.... sand it, dremel the design, sand it, polish it, sand it, primer it, sand it, primer it, paint it x 4, gloss it. More pride, less money, and it looks exactly how I want it to look.

Wow.... I thought it was a pretty awesome case until I found out it's ENORMOUS dimensions. Though it does have some perks like a complete tooless design, I just don't have THAT kind of space. I would love to mod my own case, but unfortunately I am without tool, (not that I don't know how to use them mind you). I wish I had money to burn so I could buy some. I guess I'll have to settle for commercial.

Am I the only one that thinks the designers of this case are trying to rip off the droid ships in "phantom menace"? Seriously - how similar are the two?

Plus its one of the ugliest cases I have ever seen. Give me a plain ol beige box over that any day of the week.

I really hope they dont ship these things to Australia. I would be embarrased to have one sitting on my desk!
