Default NZXT Lexa Blackline

Well I remember a few weeks ago I was flipping through the pages of the latest Maximum PC when I noticed an add from one of the box named PC Gaming companies (I think it was iBuyPower) when I saw what looked like the NZXT Lexa but this one was black with red, and I thought to myself that's hot. So I looked all over the net even NZXT's website and could not find then it, then today I was looking for a case and I came across it at PC Cyber the Lexa Blackline and let me tell you seeing this thing in person the picture does it no justice. The black is like a piano finish and the red LED's just say Sith all over it. If the Dark Lord of the Sith himself was a gamer this would be his case. I'm getting the case next pay and starting my build. Along with my work log I will write up a review on the case.

Front panel and rear panel is a piece of junk plastic. This case may look cool but overall its a poorly built piece of junk!

I agree 100% I have one siting right in front of me ATM. I'm on my second rig... The case is so-so well designed and is just plastic .... Plastic everywhere, some acrylic, some more plastic etc... In short, it's cr@p!

Oh man, I can see this as God's Own Crossfire case.

Well, the color-scheme at least.
