    I just noticed the Thermatake level 10 case on newegg for a hefty 850$. Even though this case might look nice and innovative the price tag just kills it for me, since i could either spend that money on a nice upgrade or even a whole decent PC by itself. I've also been doing some research on this nifty item, and found out that its 90% plastic, so i dont know about that. anyways here's the newegg link.

    Now if it was all black and red anodized aluminum, came with a matching screen and would be delivered to your door by some hot TT employee chick, THEN I'd say 850 bucks is somewhat justified.

    I noticed that this case makes your PC look like a stood-up PS2 =P

    The local UPS chick ain't nothing to scoff at...she gets all nervous when she comes to the door because she's dropped a package or two. It's cute.


    I'm partway there...:laugh:

    Yeah it looks like something Sony would make.

    I like the way it looks but not its price. Probably cost them $200 to make anyways.

    How can a manufacture realistically price this at $850? I'm shocked that this actually is produced.

    Anyone remember the Simpson's episode where Homer finds out he has a brother. Turns out his brother is a millionaire that works for a top car company and puts homer in charge of building a car for the 'average man'. After homer builds it turns out the car is $82,000 and completely improbable for the manufacture to produce.

    I think TT needs to brush up on their Simpsons and learn a lesson or two.

    For less that that you can get the Lian Li Red Spider case, or probably any other Lian Li case for that matter.

    This is not the first time for them, nor will it be the last. I mean LianLi made that snail-shaped case..sells for just as much. Uh, I cannot remember the name of the case Tt did last, but it had watercooling, and a back panel that was very extended, to hide the wires, and such...the "sword M", or something?


    What Tt needs to stop doing is listening to the feedback at tradeshows.:banghead:

    ....and out of all the materials they could've used to back the price, they decided to go for plastic....PLASTIC, that straight out shows you that the case is fairly "cheap" to make.

    I could make a better looking computer case with a bucket of Lincoln Logs.

    And $850?! EFFFFFFFFFFFFF that!

    I'd still take the 800d before this. Don't get me wrong, this case is sexy as a mofo, I just can't see it being very practical.

    HA! $70 shipping to southeast Georgia. If it's going to be $850, at least give us free shipping.

    It would be worth $850 only if it was a completed PC..... equal to mine or better.

    Anybody want to start a pool that this does not make more than 2 sells for the first 2 months?

    850 bucks huh, :laugh:

    900+ when you include shipping

    I live in NJ so this case costs over 1000 DOLLARS for me using my usual second day mailing or 984(pretty much 1000) with normal shipping

    [​IMG]

    I would pay a max of 1/5th that for this max

    fail thermaltake, . . . . fail

    I fully agree, that is full of FAIL. I'd much rather have 3 Obsidians at that cost and still have money left over for beers:)

    man i understand the hating on the price ...i hate it too

    but to me its the most beautiful, original and practical unmodded case i've ever seen

    due to constant pluggin and unpluggin of drives, i keep my TT eureka case always open

    the fact that you can open any compartment of the computer separatly is a great idea imo

    + it seems like u really got some space to work with

    too bad its almost the price of the next pc i wanna buy :banghead:
