    I hate how manufacturers picture cases with high end hardware installed but with most of the power and data cables missing. You can talk all you want about the case looking nice in the pictures, but if it's a mess once you install the cables, then the window is pointless. Cable management is what distinguishes good windowed cases from bad ones.

    Neat little case, would be decent for someone who lives in a tiny dorm or apartment.

    It would do better as a coffee table, short legs, all in black, gaming rig between sofa and TV ... it would make sense

    Ohh so many design flaws, the biggest is HDD cooling (yes they need cooling, especially if you clam up that many in a case). They ALL will need direct air flow over them, plus the exhaust capability...basically its useless for those with liquid on CPU and GPU, and several mechanical hard drives. All that ambient temperature will bake your motherboard chipset, and if you do not have liquid on your GPU, goodbye video card kabooom! (give or take half a year lol). I am currently working on one of these concepts, and while I lack the tools to make it look sharp, this is like Fisher Price on the thinking side. Looks mean nothing if it does not work. That is why I am a fan on the larger NZXT cases such as the Switch 810/Phantom 820. The only thing you can't do it it is jam a hord of hard drives, but at least your hardware is safe. Besides, if you have that many drives on a motherboard, what kind of SATA/RAID card setup do you have? Also, what motherboard is going to support a Dual GPU (becoming more common) and the drive controller cards to run all those drives....wait for it, XL-ATX, EATX, and HPTX...wait for it...crap it does not all fit, remove some components, back to a high school gamer setup (because realistically that is all that will fit in this without compromising space and PROPER cooling). Try again Lian Li, figure out your measurements and placements better.
