Very nice case. Just wish it wasn't tempered glass. Just make it metal on the sides too and I would definitely buy this.

Even with the drivebay-less design that I hate, I still like it somehow.

Nice case for sure, but why still include those antique USB 2 ports on the front panel, either make'em 3's or C's and be done with it....

And since I have long since moved to all m.2/ssd's, I favor the option to remove ALL drive cages and get the best possible air flow path :)

Oh I mean the front panel 5.25 bays. But I'm fine with with taking out internal HDD cages (optionally).

I see the desktop PC as virtually a one stop solution for anything. So I hate this trend that basically says "Your computer isn't a Blu-ray player.. get a dedicated machine instead." This idea of specialized equipment when you already have a PC is kind of dumb to me. Especially in these tower forms, where I should make use of space as much as possible. /rant

I agree with you, and I could live with one 5.25" bay on this case for sure, but that would take away some of their clean, slick look though.

However, I have lived without any drive bays for quite a while now, even though my case (TT900) can accommodate one, I chose to use it for a digital fan controller instead.... But I already had an external blue ray drive when I bought that case, so that made my decision a bit easier...

I can easily imagine me trying to plug the headphones to the... reset button.
They are very close and same shape.
But the case itself looks good.

What might be the cost of a "corporate mission" box, like this? Nice looks but, a DVD slot? Missing? Even Lian Li, the ultimate waste of moneys, usually has a DVD slot built in to there, " Clean Designs".

BTW, I'm drunk. I have spent more time correcting my typing than this post deserves. Too boot, I may be completely wrong. The last Lain Li contraption, I saw, was w/ out a DVD slot. But, me thinks I may be right that a lot of those money boxes do have them.

Rant over, I am going to bed. Thinking I am right!! LOL!

Gute Nacht meine Freunde!
