True, I do find Plastic wears a lot easier than metal.. My CM Scout is that way for its front panel too.

Only time will tell to see what materials they made this one out of.

Too much plastic, sliders instead of knobs for the fan controller, and one of the 200mm exhaust fans is being partially blocked by the top panel. There are some interesting features, but this case really isn't for me.

I'm liking it, one thing I want to know is how sturdy the plastic is.

This looks really nice in white. Also $120-$150 isn't a bad price tag either. I might get it

i like it quite a bit. I like where the connectors are just fine, i don't like them drooping down the front, so down the side is better. Its cool, sci fi looking. I don't have a issue with plastic either, long as its thick and sturdy. Its just another tool in the palette for designers.

Not a bad looking case, keep in mind it's still a budget case, so it's not gonna be made out of titanium and aircraft aluminum with NASA certified rivets and whatnot..

That was one hell of an awkward interview though.

actually it'd work really fine for me, i always keep the pc on the right side so not having to go around a tad would be cool.


edit if only they'd come out under 100 bucks. make some killing vs cm and such ;)

They sent over both the Red & White version for me to chose one and customize for them. I asked if I'm allowed to review one if I released the review on their launch day, still waiting for reply.

I agree with everyone about the use of plastic, I usually stay clear of plastic cases for personal use. Hopefully I can catch up on things and open one up this afternoon.
