Hey! Don't bash the Sunbeam UFO, it's awesome! It's a cube! (Ok stretched out cube called a rectangle but you get the point.)

It's kinda strange..like for 77$ you could've got a better case than that shiny thing that you call a CUBE .. :D

How did you find the build quality on it? I've looked at it a couple of times but wasn't sure if it would hold up.

My main concern is if it would be able to be taken apart and re-assembled at the other end more than once.........

This is my current set-up in my "dorm room".......


I managed to pack my entire computer except for the speakers and monitor (picked up a Samsung 906bw, and a set of logitech R-20s here) into one suitcase, but I'm wondering if the cube case would come apart for travel as well as the tech station did. (I'm not sure what the room inspectors are going to think when they see the open case..... :) ).

Well it's a pretty good case overall, but there are a few things which are a little bit frustrating when you put it together. Although if you move your PC around alot I think the tech station would be better for frequent disassembly and reassembly.

Even though it's a good case, now that I think back I would of liked to get a different case (for a few reasons, if you want to know why exactly you can send me a PM), notably the CM 690, but it wasn't out when I was looking for a case.

I just personally can't stand transparent cases ...If I would have one besides me I think I would go crazy..in the room dark, the case transparent and blue neons, AAAH, THE MADNESS..one hammer, no case..

Dell Vostro 1500. Pretty plain-looking. Quite heavy, though. A lot heavier than its same-chassis Inspiron sibling.

How do you like that monitor and where did you pick it up at?
