    I guess it looks like a power amp because they know only people with component preamp/power amp hi-fi systems are going to buy it.

    But hey at least it comes with the remote :)

    These cases put more expensive cases to shame. If you were to drop the cash on one of these, once it's in your hands you know you got your moneys worth. :)

    Touch screens aren't quite inexpensive yet, hence the higher price with the touch model.

    Ahh it looked kinda cheap too me. I mean the way the card reader PCB was exposed looks like something I would break in 5 minutes. But I guess pictures and my Tt prejudice don't tell the whole story.

    I stopped at the 90 degree control PCB fail. If a designer can't think of that, they're not worth my cash.

    Are video cards able to extend underneath the bar that the ODD and HDD's are mounted on? If so, I really like the interior design of this case.

    I saw from the picture that the LCD display was different from the picture on its packaging. Is this case's LCD also too bright to allow us to read anything, like the one in Moncaso 832 case?

    Luxa2 is worth it, amazing case in a market full of non-contenders.

    This case is pretty good. I built a beefy system out of one today and it wrecks. Big, open, and cool. There are a couple of flaws, but they aren't glaring and are easily overcome.

    It is not cheaply built either, 5mm thick aluminum everywhere. This thing is a monster and very sleek. Though, the top of the "X" in the "Luxa2" decal on the front being made out of aluminum was a detriment. It penetrated my thumb when i picked up the case and broke off when I put the case down... in my thumb lol. I had to cut it out with a knife. It would be nice if that was just a sticker... or even better, sand blasted onto the front of the case like the top plate.

    It isn't appropriate to post links or URL's in your first post, so I wont. If you want to see the start to finish build just send me a PM and ill link you to my blog.

    Peace,
    Brice
