    I'm all for clean cut, but that's too plain.

    I didn't see your thread and it didn't come up when I searched. Hence creating my own.

    I would like it without the screen... and better placement of the screen/optical drives... more to the center of the case? it would look better even if it would be harder to use

    i rather like black bird...

    This omen lacks in style inside the case i think no great organization!

    but vodoo team they aint playing around... they aim the top no doubt

    yeah blackbird is nice, but they seem to be way over hyped... they havent' really done much thats revolutionary with it? sure they include a lot of aftermarket stuff standard like hot-swappable SATA drives... but thats a basic change, as is the standard these days to make tool-less drive bays and expansion slot holders...

    the case itself looks quite intriguing,b ut otherwise... seems the price tag, atleast for me is way out of proportion

    the omen series on the other hand has some spectacular looks and performance with fully custom watercooling... not to mention Rahul Sood is an inspiration, he didn't even graduate college (right?)

    Yep this thing is beautiful (except for the lcd), but Rahul Sood seems to be going crazy and overly arrogant - he's becoming Steve Jobs...

    how so? if anything, I think he deserves it

    Voodoo is definately the premier name in high-end computing...

    speaking of which...

    the way that it has vertical airflow is such a logical step in the evolution of cases

    hot air naturally rises up! so if you direct all the airflow from the bottom to top, it just makes sense!

    I don't agree with your assertion here, only now is Voodoo doing anything to separate its self from most of the other members of the pack, but there are vendors who offer a better service and performance.
    His claims that nobody else can do it like Voodoo and that they know what other design teams do not are bullish and unsubstantiated. Don't get me wrong, I like most of his train of thought and have respect for him, but I don't like his underlying smugness.

    isn't that how you seperate yourself from the competition?

    you can't go to a press release and say "Our Voodoo Omen line of computers is just about as a good as our competitors, nameluy Alienware." ??

    I see what you mean though... I still think the previous Omen was still ahead of Alienware and whoever else competes with them

    Murderbox anyone? :D

    You can't really compare Alienware with Vodoo... :banghead: the closest thing to Voodoo Omen is new murderbox MK II
