    Not only is it ugly, it is expensive! You would be throwing your money away on something like this...

    I like the In Win 901 case much more. It's aluminum and tempered glass design is expensive looking and very solid.
    This should be reserved for those that like something completely different and have a lot of extra money to spend.

    Good review Darksaber.

    haha! We knew it!

    Well, you and I have money for this case, as most tech freaks, but not for absurd expensive cars! So to make me happy, I "could" opt for this one... and maybe resell it in the future for more... (just theorizing)

    Anyway... the main issue here is DarkSaber still using that years old mini motherboard, in such a big case! Pleaseeeeeeeeeeeee use a full ATX board! (even if it is broken or third hand or one Wizzard wants to dump!) (I know I said it before, but it is just pinching!) :toast:

    Well that certainly is something...

    I like that they are doing something different with cases, but that price!

    It's so ugly that it's kinda growing on me.....

    Good thing it is too expensive.

    LOL! I can't get past the way it looks, and spending that much on a case gives me pause. I start thinking of all of the other things I can get instead.

    Good review, it's a "unique" case.....

    Just think how awesome case you could get with $800 from case labs.

    Very nice. Would have to load up with hardware to balance out the size of that case - needs an eATX board.

    Amazing case. I love it from the first time I saw it. I can think of only 2-3 things to make it perfect. Make a handle(s) somwhere, add a small aluminum tube - to keep my mousepad in (it's a soft one- it rolls) and make it mini-ITX. But "as-is", one of the most amazing things would be to release the drawings and folding specifications. I don't think it would harm them. I've worked on a metal folding machine, and you don't have that at home. And aluminum is SO expensive, I don't think a lot of people would make replica from it. Steel on the other hand :) is way more aproachable. Anyway, awesome stuff on the market this year.

    Art. People worrying about bang vs buck should not concern themselves with such objects.

    I like the looks of the case; however the cost is outrageous.

    Anybody in the same or similar industrial branch can make a cost estimation of the materials?
    ;)

    Cost of materials is quite cheap (tempered glass and bent aluminium are pretty standard as far as materials go). On the other hand hand working them using professional craftsmen costs a lot, along with design and quality control.

    I have an IN Win 901 case here. (Solid aluminum frame and smoked, tempered glass) The quality is apparent from the first time you open the box.
    In Win has a great parts supply, and craftsmen in place already. Their design & engineering is outstanding too. Their prices are high, but their cases seem to be worth what they ask for them.

    Thanks for the review! I would really like to have one although it's too expensive for me. But if I had the money, I'd order one instantly.

    Not only the money, you need a propper and decorated house around it. :)

    Economies of scale (production wise) necessarily mean it's going to be expensive. It's not a case for me but I think it's good that they're making it a functional artistic statement. Creating a design that is eye catching (whether you find it ugly or not) marks out a manufacturer that has a passion for their product and that's a good thing.

    And let's face it, in the "case modder community" there exist 1000's if not millions of case mods that can only be classified as unpractical and horrible ABORTIONS, so whats the point of rejecting this one.
    Then you have those that go "full-water", how much does that cost and how much is it "worth"?

    (One day In-Win will offer me a contract, helllooooo :)

    It's in the same price bracket as a heavily moded caselabs or mountain mods case, but completely different, I mean, this is meant to bee a show price that by the looks of it is nice to build in as well, wile the "boxes" is just that, ultimately utilitarian but with some nice looks to it.

    As for myself and my system, having a external rad i could actually haver used this in-win case and gotten just ass good results ass with my caselabs box, but more people would printably say "COOL" rather than "THAS F##ing BIG"
