We actually use high quality plastic. Take the Merc for example. Only $40. Other case manufacturer's would use recycled plastics to build a case in that price bracket. We don't. Softouch is one of those things that you have to touch it to believe it. Love it or hate it. When BitFenix sent me my shinobi, first thing i touched was the front panel. I love it. Even NZXT has copied our softouch coating on the sentry and tempest 210.

I know what you mean in regards to the lack of fans. Yes, we also could have packed all our cases with fans. It would either be many fans, loud and low airflow, or few fans, quiet yet higher airflow. Again, we chose quality over quantity. The wires for the fans are completely black, even the front panel cables are black. An extra $20 on spectres to fill up the case is more than enough.
