Default Bitfenix Survivor Core

Haven't seen much about this case and wondering what the feedback is?

BitFenix.com Products Chassis Survivor Core

To me it looks like a pretty sweet little case.

The reviews I've seen focus on 2 negatives. 1. You have to remove a couple of brackets on the back with a screwdriver before you can remove the side panel. 2. The handle doesn't work properly.

Which is too bad, because I really like the look of it. Like a mini TJ-07.

Handle to me is of no biggy as I'd never use it anyways. But I'm curious of those brackets.

I do really like the look of it. I'd like to do a build in one to try it out, but not for myself.

Why not for yourself?

Because I have a TJ-07, a Stacker 830, a Storm Scout, and a couple of other cases in my basement already along with a constant need to fiddle inside my case. It might be ok for my wife's machine, not for mine, as my side panels come off almost weekly.

Looks very cool. Does anyone know what the difference is between the Survivor and the Survivor Core?
I guess I might stop saving up for the 800D now =/

Nevermind, just read up a little bit more on it.
I think the main difference is the Core does not have USB 3.0 and some of the extras that are included in the regular model of the Survivor.
