    Looks cheap, cooling options and cable management aren't anything special or good. Only good point I can see is the LCD screen but it will probably fail anyway.

    Looks like it has an ipod touch jammed into it. If it were made out of nice materials, it'd be a nice case on a (severe) budget.

    I like how they only say 'intergrated LCD' or 'LCD' display.. No resolutions, or mention of colors.. I'm guessing that it's nothing more than a mono chrome display not unlike those found in most aftermarket car stereos.. (you can even see the set time buttons next to the screen) So this is just another typical m-atx case..
