Default Ultra case

PC Cyber Canada - For All Your Computer Needs

Does anybody have either of these cases? On sale for $30 so I figure that's a good deal. Might get one for parents PC.

I'm just gonna go ahead and guess they're just your run of the mill cases with side windows on them. Nothing fancy, but they should do the trick.

Great price. Although shipping might hurt.

Not sure if my parents would want a giant ULTRA on the front of their computer, but to each their own.

Might get one for myself ;)

They look pretty sturdy. Cases $40 or lower usually have 80mm fans, these use 120mm. Small plus.

$30 bucks a good deal if you're local like me.

I guess they might be comparable to Sonata III if it wasn"t sold with the 500W power supply. Anyways, I think I'm gonna pick one up in the morning.

They are not that bad Case wise for their entry levels.
If those cases are anything like the X-blaster I picked up for my Pops, you will be happy.
Again, they are not top line from the big names (except the M998 which is great to work in) but they are not the bargain basement type either.

Regards,
ST

Went there today and the Gladiators were all open boxes and everyone had bad rivets or something else broken. So I got 2x eTorques and both have broken rivets on the side panel when opened them at home. Returning them tomorrow. I'll stick with HAF and similar cases.
