Nice review Fits!
Yeah, I don't know about spending over $300 for a Htpc case.. Man, I'm even scared looking at $150 for the one I'm looking at now...
Very good job man
That is one interesting case. Even more impressive than usual pyramid cases.
There are usual pyramid cases???
I believe he means that it's unusual... I think...
What I ment is that this one looks more impressive than other manufactured pyramid cases, I admit the term "unusual" was a bit misplaced there
Well done Fitseries.
Nicely done fits, such an unusual case too
Nice looking case and loved how there was a first mod done already in the review Nice job Fitseries3, didn't know you were reviewing and this wasn't even the first one :-o
Well it's about time you start review on TPU Fit. Great job!
This you can build in yours mamas shed... how much 300$ for some plastic yeah write
Looks a bit poor IMO. Is there no where to fit the motherboard IO shield? Looks like it's just a big gaping hole in the rear!
Isn't that the ship of the french aliens in "Kung Pow" movie?
Frag like an Egyptian. To expensive imo, no I/O shield and the small psu do suck. Neat looking case otherwise.
who the hell would waste money on this "case" anyway?
if you guys cannot be nice then dont post your remarks.
in the class of HTPC cases this is actually one of the best i have seen.
you cannot compare this case to tower cases.
Pyramid aficionados, cube and rectangle haters, people who worship aliens, camel herders, people who belong to the SG-1 fanclub, Richard Dean Anderson, Ra, etc...
There's always going to be something that appeals to one and not the other. Understand?
of course they are don't you remember sg1 and the goaulds...
Thats the worst case ive seen so far this year.I wouldnt pay $50 for it.Looks like a real pain to put together too.And I just noticed a slot for the graphics card too and no way to tie it to the case with only the pcie slot holding it.
Interesting concept, nice materials, expensive machining process (because it's NOT PLASTIC) and finishing, definately an interesting start for that company. I do like the idea, but it's definately not for the overclockers out there, though I could see some places where it'd be a nice addition as a very clean looking htpc or similar. Top notch review Fits!
I.... Like? Yes i do, strange, but has its style definetily...
for the pyramid lovers, if you buy this pyramidal case, and you die, they can bury you there.
No sorry dude...
You did a Great review, but this product itself is just silly.
Anyone who buys this is either silly themselves, or just plain desperate for attention.
It is utterly impractical, needs a totally unrealistic amount of space on a desk, and by very design makes it almost impossible to use half of the various add-on's available on the open PC market. It's a bad design intended for a very VERY small segment of the market, with an eye for pointless gimmicks.
It's not that I'm trying to be negative, just realistically observational.
Its still interesting to read about, and again you did a very nice review, that i did enjoy reading & seeing how they had chosen to assemble & work this design - but I cant think of one person I've ever met that would actually buy this thing - or even set up a PC in it if they where given one for free.
Its just way too impractical. It takes the concept of a SMALL HTPC / ULPC type application & nearly triples its base size.
when you shipping back my sempron
Thanks everyone for your comments on the review.
Truthfully, this case was never designed to be a primary computer but more as a supplemental desktop. I myself run a Lian-Li full tower with 9 hard drives and that is my primary server. The thing is, I really wanted something that was unusual and interesting that I could place on my desk and would catch people's attention.
What I really wanted to create was a DeathStar case but trust me on this, that's even more impractical and has the small licensing issue This was meant to be my first handcrafted entry into the computer case world.
I acknowledge that it's expensive but the current price is actually what the parts cost. You have to keep in mind, I used premium components (lots of expensive aluminum and machining) and I'm not a multinational corporation. Heck, the power supply itself costs $50 for oem pricing and that's the price of some cheap cases.
In summary, I built 20 of these to test the market and see if there was interest for my personal design aesthetic knowing that they would not be utilitarian like most cases. All in all, it was pretty exciting to make a product from scratch and get it onto the market and have it reviewed like any other product. It gave me real appreciation for the small companies like MNPCTECH and HighSpeedPC and the challenges involved.
Thanks definitely go to Fitseries3 for his gracious review and suggestions for improvements,
