    You can store your DVDs in the slots; save some money on a tidy system.

    The problem is you can get a very good case for around £150 and a strech £200 for maybe a corsair 800d.I just could not justify £500 for a case plus thermaltake's finish is not that good as a rule.
    Still i'am waiting to see someone put some pics of a build in this case.

    Have to say I like it actually, it's a completely new take on a case which is nice to see, sure it's a fashion statement to an extent and it's expensive but I can see it working if you have a minimalist apartment. Though, that said, while I do like the design I wouldn't buy it, I don't have a place like that and couldn't live in one myself...

    But it's nice to see somebody is doing anything other than variations on the theme of a rectangular box in various shades of silver and black without it being completely tacky. I think that's a good thing myself but I appreciate that while I'll pay a substantial premium for good design, there another crowd who have no interest in that.

    Nobody's going to buy it because it's a good case though, they'll buy it because it's a design statement, either because they like the design or they want to show off by having something different to everyone else. In either case, money is less important and their definition of value is different - different doesn't mean wrong though!

    I do agree that the finish doesn't actually look great in close up shots and some of the details aren't up to the price point though.

    I have no problems with people trying something different and make a case a bit more stylish.But i think that after a couple of weeks and when the novelty wears off you will sit there looking at it and wish you had bought a silverstone case or the corsair which in the long term would be easier cases to live with and cost a fraction of the price

    Yep I agree, if I had enough to waste on it I would get one, sadly had to settle for the HAF932 like the case, but its not a statement at all :o

    I think it looks stunning, but like everyone else, not worth the money for the average user.
    Would love to see some user pics though if anyone has it.

    Actually we have sold a small amount of this case. < 20 units, but the pre-orders haven't all been fulfilled yet.

    Too confusing for my wife I'm sure. I'd come home from work to find her looking for the keyboard under the leccy meter.

    To me its a truelly ugly case, though I can see why people may like it as its different, I wouldnt pay anymore then 100 for it. ( which wont happen for 100 years lol )

    maybe someone will buy one, instantly regret it and try and flog it out MM, will probably end up rather cheap :)

    The biggest thing that surprises me is not that someone would buy such a vomit inducing case, but the fact the reviews are made by people who don't even own the case.

    doesn't own it, but apparently can still give it 5 stars.

    doesn't own it, but managed to feel he could give it 3 stars


    Doesn't own it either but still gave it 5 stars


    wtf is that all about?

    I'm off to check my dictionary for the meaning of the word review!
