    That level 10 case is stupid IMO, its mostly for looks and doesn't make the machine go faster (like honda's with APC mufflers and add on wings)

    That`s a good saving on a unique case...
    Did the AMD edition HAF offer any cooling enhancements for your INTEL CPU
    or did you just like the look?

    Sure it's unique and I do like the look BUT the look isn't worth the ridiculous amount of money they're attempting to sell these things at. I too have a CoolerMaster HAF and I bought it for massive airlow which does help the cooling as we know and it was priced on sale at $99.99. I will say that I do think the AMD HAF edition is ridiculously ugly though haha.

    A $600 premium over a standard case may seem like it's a lot for us, but there are some who would spend that much on dinner.

    There is a serious difference in 20-30 dollars more for different looks and a case that costs 800 dollars and weighs as much as a small moon and looks uglier than a dirty diaper.

    For how much that thing costs, it better come with all that free stuff.

    Not just that, it's so ugly they hope that once the paramedics take the mail man away with his broken back, and blown out knees from delivering it to you, you'll be so enthraled with all the "free stuff" you won't notice how ugly the case is.

    Ditto. For how ugly that case is they should pay whoever owns it and shows it off to their friends.

    Actually it was designed in part by BMW's M3 division, which clearly shows they have all gone insane and should be fired, for making some thing this ugly.

    I could see using this setup at a trade show to get peoples' attention, but I wouldn't waste my own money on it.

    It has better come with a free hooker or a hot and very available delivery woman.

    Problem is you'd better be into women in wheelchairs, because that's where she will be with a broken back after bringing that to your door.

    The problem with offering free crap with the case is that it's their own brand. I'd rather buy a Logitech mouse or something. Not that I would buy that case in the first place, I usually end up going with different companies for different components.

    Thermaltake used to mean quality, and inovation, now it means broken in 6 months.

    Cases are a matter of personal taste
    I think the level 10 looks amazing
    my TJ09 cost me about $450AUD when purchased but to its merit is on its fifth build (must update my specs) NOW UPDATED
    not saying a cheap case is false economy BUT... Do you think a HAF will last that long with style and build quality?
    I am not usually interested in anything Thermaltake bring to the table although the Level 10 has my interest because i feel that it would go the distance and that is why it commands a high premium
    that said
    gaming keyboards run like $100 these days don`t they and the Tt looks like a contender for that market.
    Gamer headsets bout the same? right?
    I don`t feel that Tt have put the huge sting on this deal that some of the posts imply.
    Keeping in mind quality doesn't tend to go out of style
    If you don`t like this case don`t buy one.

    I wouldn't want that to happen to a mouse, at least with Logitech I know it will last years. Then again, usually when something comes free with another product it usually isn't the best. Even if I was to get this bundle and free mouse, I'd still end up buying a Logitech mouse.

    IMO Logitech's quality has slipped as well, all 3 of the last Logitech products I bought died in 3 months 2 headsets and a mouse.

    I love the looks of the Level 10. I would not pay $800 for one on a million years. I would happily buy it for $150 and MAYBE up to $200, depending on how good of a mood I'm in. I'd love to use it for an HTPC/server in my living room.

    The price is the only thing that's actually wrong with it.

    The weight, is also wrong, it weighs 80'ish pounds empty.
