    That is such a beautiful case, shame about the outrageous price tag though.

    Very true...as is the case everywhere...

    A Lambo is muchhhhh nicer and bigger than a Mini...costs what? 25x more?

    the Lian-Li case is muccccchhh nicer and bigger than that "other" case...costs what? 3-4x more?

    so at least the multi is lower ^^

    cheers

    OMG 9.9! Looking at the height of this case I guess it's apt for them to place the connectors/buttons on top, since I as a user would place the unit on the floor, not a table/desk. With such height, the optical drive and the buttons/connectors on top would be very accessible.

    The problem is, that the case is so tall, if it is placed under a desk, it would come so close to the bottom of the desk that it would make using connectors/buttons nearly impossible.

    Not under a desk, beside it. A lot of Tt Armor/Xaser owners I know put their boxes on the floor, and with a single-user desk, the case can squat on the floor next to it and still be accessible.

    @CS: It's going back.

    I want to shed a tear... lol.. Well for that price, I hope so! :roll: But, if the price was right, I'd grab one.

    :ohwell:Wow... great case.

    My CM Stacker T01 is huge and it's still 10cm shorter than this one.

    I dont think I've seen a more beautiful case than this one. If it only had a few things adjusted I'd definately give it a 10 for ultimate versatility:
    - if the hdd modules could host 4 hdd each;
    - if the usb/connectors/buttons would be placed & masked better;
    - and if it had wheels;

    Edit: Also I am curious, how much does it weight? is the inner frame made out of SECC steel?

    It's going to be over £200 that's for sure. :shadedshu

    I'm sure there are a lot of people, like me, that don't have the option of setting it beside the desk, if it is going on the floor in my computer room, it is going under the desk.

    Aside from the price, it should be a perfect 10. Thats more than enough for me, but I dont think Id count it as a HTPC case.

    Personaly, I like the location of the I/O panel and power/reset button. I would actually have this case sitting on an 6" to 8" riser so that the optical drive clears the top of my desk.
    The only thing I would've like to seen would have been a hinged door for the HDD bay, this way you wouldn't have to remove the whole side panel to hot swap.
    I'm still trying to decide on this case or the PC-X500, but I'm really starting to lean towards this one.

    BTW what is the measurment from the top of the case to the bottom of the FDD slot?
