cause you picked el-cheapo UPS ground plus fuel charges sucker

news flash go with USPS Priority Mail International

its air mail that you pay up front for the brokerage fee's

you pay extra then ground

but when hits your door ZERO payment hassle free 99% times

If you have the patience a used Lian Li can almost always be found within a few months on Kijiji. They don't have the best airflow nor do they have great cable management but hey, if I buy something used for about 1/3 original price I kinda expect to put in a bit of labour to get what I want, especially if it's in good shape. That said, the CaseLabs is a beautiful case. If you can justify it go for it!

Sucker lol, thx for all the tips Kapt, have bought all my cases here in canada, will use USPS though if I do buy something over $200 from the states. Everyone warned me about the duty when was considering a mountain mod case, thought would pass on the info.

..with 5mm thick aluminum ? Man i would love one of those again !!.

The new Tj09 curves is a turn off. They should stick with the TJ10 look but in a Mid size ATX format.

Lian Li...picked up the Lian-li pc-Z60A but I don't like the USB on the top and I don't like that there no pull out motherboard tray. The swap sata is nice though but I'll rarely use it. No side window is a nono

like to sell it off and get a real piece of aluminum back
! not this flimsy thin aluminum or plastic they have now.
I aint moving out of my Lilly PCX-2000 for nothing.

Though there is no window but that just how I like it.

You'll still get dinged for duty even with USPS if the customs value is correctly written. I've found that orders over $100-200 get stopped at customs, but things less than that never do and get here duty-free.

Certain shipping methods though do account for duty/customs/brokerage up front though. That's why you'll see the shipping charge far more, but then at least you don't owe anything else when it gets to you. Always best to contact the seller to determine what's the best option for you I'd say.

Anyways, back to the OP, the Cosmos II is a pretty solid case I'd say. Granted it's a mix of materials (steel, aluminum, plastic) but when it all comes together, it's very strong and durable feeling. The panels are pretty thick and hinged. I think the Corsair 800D is pretty sturdy too? I believe it's largely steel construction.
