Am I allowed to go against the trend and say this case actually looks pretty awesome? Especially with all the LED fan's mounted :D

That is all, you may now burn me at a stake :P

While I wouldn't probably get this case for myself, I'd like to have a client ask for it. I think I'd like to see what I could do with a build in one just for fun.

this case does not require filters. this case does not require one direction air flow. this case is best with all fans as intake. the pressure will keep all dust out.

build quality is far better then you think, for its low weight it is as sturdy as a steel case. the top handles will not break.

It looks alright until you actually use the thing.

You could get extremely frustrated. That's about the only major thing you can do with this case that you can't with others in its price range.

Had a chance to get up close and personal with it at PAX. Interesting case to say the least. Not entirely sure how I feel about the idea. I think it is cool, and unique, but in terms of practicality, paying $200+ for something like this just gives me a funny feeling for some reason.

But yes, the build quality is actually very good. It's not plastic pits and pieces, everything is metal.

No, absolutely not. There is a ton of plastic. The frame is metal, but the side panels, front fan mounts, screw bin, top panel, and handles are either mostly or entirely made from plastic.

The frame and mesh pieces are metal. The handles and the translucent part on top are plastic, not sure about the rest.

I have one sitting less than two feet away from me. I know exactly what it's made of.
