case review on day of release.. nice.. thanks!
at first glance this case seemed a sure win for 100$.. the gunmetal color seems good in the pics.. features are good in general but digging further it could have had more to it - more fans , bottom/side filter, more space.. just doesnt stand out as a clear winner for the price.. but those who like it will buy it nonetheless..
i am slightly disppointed though..
Gimme a solid side and I will like it.
Nice review, thanks!
As for the case, if you take out all of the plastic and just the metal itself, it looks like my 690 II. I think they are just trying to make more money by making an old design a "new" case. I prefer the old scout as it had a dark tinted side panel and more fans with led for the same price.
As I case I find it pretty decent, but advertised as a LAN I have second thoughts. With so many Micro-ATX, mini-ITX, mini-ITX Low-profile and laptop options I just don't think that a standard 7-slot case can be called a LAN case. Other than that I find it much more attractive than the first version of the Scout-series.

Exactly my thoughts, that side panel is a major turn off for me.
I really love the front though, reminds me a slight bit of the Graphite 600T.
Looks good, other than the lack of filter for the bottom case fan and I don't much care for the covered front I/O ports.
Otherwise it seems a fitting upgrade from the current CM Scout. I built a rig for a friend in one recently and he really likes it.
