Thanks, I've also done some research, think I'll go with the GT900.
Very special case indeed, just so expensive... :(

I have 2 GT1000 cases. The panels are indeed thick aluminum which makes the case very heavy but solid. Everything is modular, even the drive cage is removable. I have seen someone invert the drive cage so the SATA and Power connectors to the drives are out of sight.

Overall, I really like these cases, understated with excellent build quality. The video review is bang on except for the part about the cooling. Having 4 hard drives will have minimal impact (if at all) on cooling.

They might be a bit overpriced for my liking, however they are really solid cases.
Maybe HWC might consider trying to review them down the road, at least thats what I hope.

I don't think they're worth the money at all.

There are many nicer looking Lian Li.
