Very good Review LL, there are too many nice cases out there these days.
Now I want one of those too...

CM is really on a Roll with cases these days it seems.

CM in general is gearing up with an amazing number of products lately. I get review requests from them on a nearly daily basis.

Nice, well they are a great company (I've personally purchased a long list of stuff from them for builds).
Hopefully that means they'll be sending you guys a V12 to Review soon (if they continued from the prototype seen at the shows).

I admit, I am a Mid-Tower Fan.
The only Case to ever break that exception was the original Armor.

This case has potential, and the black finish really makes it shine.

The V12 hasn't come up actually. Our discussions with them have mostly centered around more budget-friendly cooling solutions, cases as well as some interesting gadgets they are releasing.

Personally, I am happy we haven't heard much about the V12 since it may mean that they are taking feedback from the V8 and V10 launches and tweaking the V12 accordingly.

Thats good to Know SKY, I was impressed with their lineups thus far , and if that means we have to wait to get a better product, then so be it.
Hopefully they release a Higher End LED Fan soon too, I love them but at 44CFM, it just doesn't cut it anymore.

Thanks for the FYI,

ST

Finally, this looks like a good contender for the Antec 900. Actually, it has a lot more features than the Antec... just those holes for the cable management...

Really nice case, the features are really nice. For that price, I would definitely get that one over the Antec 900.

That's a pretty good case, especially when considering it for LAN events. Those handles look very durable. However, it should not be a case to get if you're never going to go to events or anything. A simple CM 690 or others would be excellent for the same amount of performance.

The matte black finish on the interior is amazing though...

In terms of the cases less than 150$, what do you guys think has the best looks aesthetic wise? I like the P182, but it looks a bit too fridge like for me. I actually like the look of the Cooler Master RC 330, the CM690 is a little boring but I really like the Cosmo S (I know it's out of the price bracket but I wish they'd make a smaller version of it).

I'm just really interested in a case that looks nice and doesn't cost too much. This Storm Scout is looking really good, can't really say the same for the HAF cases. What do you guys think?

Personally, I think the Scout would be an amazing Mid-Tower Choice.
Trust me, if I had the coin I'd go and do it lol!!!
