Perhaps something more like my Fractal R3 write-up is in order? Write-up Review: Fractal Design R3 - Wait till R4?

I wouldn't mind doing this once in a while... but then again I haven't bought a case (or built many PCs for that matter) in a while due to my hand problems.

Sure it doesn't affect this specific case, but glossing over these things will only lead to more valid criticisms being overlooked on future cases because of assumptions.
Actually, the RV02 was the first case of Silverstone's to change the layout and orientation that specific way.

The FT02 came out later and was based on the same design.

HWC pointed out the exact same problem you mentioned (with the RV02) so....

Maybe the onus is on your for a bit of poor research as well

Mm, sorry it was problem with the HDD and video card, very similar to the motherboard problem, but the motherboard problem only exists if you have an oddly designed Mobo, and extended ODD.

-Price Comparison=pricegrabber US dollar, US stores. I guess that is ok since dollars are on par.
-23.4 x 11.1 x 21.9 inches ???? Kinda big for a mid tower.

I guess my $30 bucks CM case would be consider a cardboard box.

DVD drive -> Blu-Ray drive is the future.

I can promise you we will not be returning to written reviews for cases.

Your comments however have been noted.

It seems like a waste of my costly bandwidth to watch a video when you have to write a script for the video review anyway.

I also preferred write ups;

More in depth
Installation pictures
Searchable (e.g. you want to find the model of fan included)

BTW it takes a couple of minutes to install a DVD drive
