    So, I was watching the video about it on Amazon and I saw the reset button is next to the headphones port.

    So if you miss the headphones port you'll end up doing a hard reboot of the computer - seems dumb.
    Otherwise an awesome looking case... love the idea of covering up ugly fan holes when not in use!

    I guess you could, but then again if you are blindly poking at a front I/O on most cases you could just as easily hit the much larger and easier to depress power button. The trend has been to make them as small as possible or eliminating them all together to make these accidental restarts a non-issue.

    Good point :)
    Have any suggestions for a case with similar features for cheaper?

    Observe where you are plugging it in and there shouldn't be a problem.

    This works with "significant others" as well.

    I based my pick on the fact you had a sound proofed case picked first. If you are just out for something flashy, that choice is yours as most of the cases you showed aren't anything like the original case you posted about.

    I was looking for two cases.
    I know, that's confusing. It's all good.

    Fractal Design R4 < has sound damping features also

    The 550D is a nice case but does have a few issues, USB is in the cut out so if you have somthing pluged in you cant open the front panel.
