    I think I would switch out the washers used with some bigger ones to evently distribute the weight of the case better. I kind of wish they came with some kind of backplate actually.

    Larger washers certainly would not hurt anything, but I was impressed on how everything felt solid with what it had. The handles feel like they are a PART of the case....it was that solid. Now the result may not be the same on an el cheapo case, I cannot confirm that. Then again that would be like putting spinners and gold trim on a Gremlin. :p
    Thanks. :)

    I'm just worried about cases like the Tsunami, that are designed to be as light as possible, where the top of the case is pretty thin aluminum and kind of flimsy.

    I think this looks like a great product, and I would love two for my ALL STEEL case.

    Ever try going to a LAN party? When I went to Quakecon last year, there were tons of people that were having problems carrying the case.

    Nice review Linkin, great pics and style.

    this would be really nice for lan parties and such...i wonder if they warranty any damage to your computer if one of the handles fails while your carrying it and your drop your computer?

    I think it would have been funny if you put it somewhere on the back.
    "Oh look, an oversized and cooler-looking gamecube."

    Where on the back? Right in the power supply!
