This case is neat and all but $400 is outrageous. I was expecting something around $250 as I was reading the review.
I clicked after seeing the little pic first, expect to get a good laugh. I actually kinda like it though. $400 is ridiculous though.
reminds me of one of those ugly/crappy droids in star wars.
I can't get past the price tag. This is a deal breaker for me.
Likewise, but that doesn't make me want one any less. If anything, it kinda increases the appeal, since it'll be far less commonly used. You could, of course, build a rig using one of like a billion Antec 900s.
What the heck is that thing!
Actually the blue aluminum does look cool, but the back front and top have too much of chicken wire look to them.
There are some inovative aspects here. The PSU bay done lower segregates it more and helps hide the cables, I like the drives bays, and the sloped optical bay. So maybe these ideas will end up in other cases.
But in the end this is just a novelty, and $400 for novelty IS too much.
I like it... The price is the only problem ... Do they offer it in a different color scheme?
Edit: I guess not... just looked at their website... Something all black would've been good....
Mass effect inspired... The idea is amazing !!
Better keep a compressor (compressed air can isn't going to do it) close by.
That looks incredible when it's finished up. The materials used looks high quality too.
Could I get a detailed list on why Aluminum is preferred over Steel? (excluding weight)
off the top of my head:
Tooling lasts longer
Ability to anodize rather than paint
Can go much thicker with components before weight comes back to being an issue, increasing the chassis strength.
Heat dissipating properties
Did I mention is looks much better than steel? J/K but looks sell long before any real use for it is required.
Love the case. Inwin has come up with some great cases lately. $400 is steep, but I would by one right now.
Congrats to In Win, absolutly beautiful.. I want!!!!!
(I would buy one and keep it untill I am bored of my Cosmos II in maybe 5 years)
For a case of this price, they need to offer more colors than blue/yellow.
I agree super cool case... modders will use a lot of ideas from this case I am sure.
No matter what I do I always have a lot of dust. Except for the single back exaust and pci slots, there are no openings without a filter. I vacuum regularly and have an air filter running. I am not sure an open case would make too big of a difference.
from material, the aluminum looks pretty nice and the design is ok for me
if you add some light in that, there would be a nice effect when the light pass through the case
but its too open that would collect dust faster
This is kinda neat but man there special cases are really high priced. I seen theres gonna be a window version also. The cd drive reminds me of the old bulldozer r4 case. They should of made a diff bracket and stacked a few ssd there's in that spot. make good use of the area. never hurts to be able to have more slots for when you run outta space.
I really like this case. The price tag is pretty high but it would make a nice addition to my desk .
I may consider buying one with my tax return.
I think the aluminium "laminate" design is brilliant. They have a winner, but it needs some honing.
Don't make it look like a kids toy (Gross shape)
*Removable* internal and external covers for more for dust control and airflow and fan options.
More flexibility for watercooling, like accomodating a 360 rad
Hotswap SATA bays (all of them)
If it had the above, I'd buy one immediately, even given the price!
Just saw this one at work the other day and found it a little strange. If "different" is what they were going for then they hit the nail on head! It is very sturdy though. I don't know how many people are going to get these cases for their builds so should be interesting once we start selling them in our configurations soon.
