Looks like the cases what we had ~10 years ago.

Yeah, this Spire Corp. has a lot of nerve, but no brains. This very basic, out-dated design can be found in a hundred different old cases, mostly in the $20-$30 range. Top mounted PSU, 80mm fans, unpainted interior, exploding power supply, drive racks just a sheet of steel with holes - who is going to buy this crap for $50? I recently scrapped several old cases very similar to these, because they can't be cooled effectively by 80mm fans, no USB 3.0, and ugly as hell. If they were giving them away for free, I still would have no use for these cases.

I can see the cuts on my hands and the tetanus shot I'll need if I ever build this case.

Yeah, I had an Antec SLK3000B in 2006 and even it was more modern than this. Well, of course not USB3.0's but I don't still need them, since I don't have any USB3.0 devices. Also now I saw that this Spire's piece of crap has also a PSU, that could be fun to guess when it will explode :D 40€ case with a PSU can't be good.. I wouldn't even buy a bare PSU with price like that, the price tells instantly that it's pure crap filled with Chinese caps and the build quality can't be even near acceptable.
