Looks more like a MATX case... kind of small

Interesting design, I'd be a little afraid of dropping something in it though. It does look pretty cool though, but I think the price should be about half that considering there is almost nothing to it

Yeah I think that I would be looking for a lot cheaper tech station before I thought about buying a Skeleton. IMHO.

It's furniture, not a case. It could have been something really neat, but too many little flaws in design make it an also-ran. People who need a test-bench won't seriously consider this, people who need a high-performance case won't seriously consider this... I'm going to file this under "bling".

Appears to me to be specific built to exploit the marketing hype of having a 10" fan. Just my take.

That is way to expensive. For half the price, maybe.... but ther again, maybe not. I guess you love it or you hate it, for me this is a miss.
