    I have a paypal debit card, so websites like this i can still use it even tho they dont use the paypal website. Also the debit card is free with no additional charges

    You sure it was directly from Amazon and not a third party seller/merchant? Amazon does not use PayPal the last time I checked, I'll check again but I'm pretty sure I'm not mistaken.

    I always check once and a while to see if they have added Paypal support and they have not. Until they implement something like how I pay for things from Newegg w/ Paypal- they dont support it in my book :D

    Yeah but that's ultra:rolleyes:, Nzxt makes most of there cases rock solid! I myself hate doors on cases, but then again I don't use my cd/dvd drive very often anyway.

    I'd never buy a case without a door. The noise difference is huge.

    While I like the white with the black grills, the case itself is absurdly ugly.:ohwell:

    That's why I got mine as well. Very handy for sites that don't take Paypal.

    NZXT cases all seem to look like each other imo, this one is no exception. I think in order for me to want to buy a NZXT they are going to have to make something different, I personally like elegant cases not this jaged edge weird looking things, I'd use a test bench before using this

    you know I am not a fan of plastic. I got it out of the box and was meh about it. The more I got to use it and look at it, it did seem to grow on me.

    Dont get me wrong, I love my 800D and this is not a replacement for it, but at $140 it will definitely compete.

    The mesh is just held in with tabs. IIRC the steel is flat around it on the inside. If I remember later I will PM you with a definite answer.
