Everything but the front actually looks okay, but the front is just a mess of plastic.

Yeah, front looks hideous and I'm not keen on the window either.

I have the thermaltake Level 10 white edition and its beautiful.
I see a lot of people ranting about disliking plastic cases. Plastic is such a diverse material it can be made in so many different ways and spec's. It threw me off at first too, but honestly I see nothing wrong with it at this point. Its sturdy, reliable and at least with this case, its more like a resin then a plastic.
Can't scratch it as its the same all the way through, so you would have to cut it with a knife to make a noticeable scratch.
Sure plastic is cheaper then aluminum, but its also more reliable when it comes to keeping its looks.

Im not a huge fan of this case, aestheticaly. I am glad that TT are trying something different. Alot of companies recently have been releasing CM690II look-a-likes.

I like that TT are pushing the boat and appealing to people who want to be that bit different.

I like the level 10, if only i could afford one. The moeny and the space it takes up.

Ya I was going to get the white corsair graphite 600T, but when i went to the store they had the level 10 on sale for 100$ off which made it 25$ more then the 600T, plus it was the last one they had and told me they weren't getting more even suggesting it may get discontinued soon.. I couldn't say no to that!

I also find its not so huge as the pics make it look. Its definately no bigger then my Cosmos S was...a little wider, but not as tall. It REALLY stands out. The house I'm living in is rented and currently for sale, so its being shown on a fairly regular basis. Even the people viewing it stop to comment on how awesome my case is. Its kind of nice :)

When people criticize the plastic, they aren't complaining about the material as much as the way it's used. In this case's case, it's made the front look as cheap as a 99c store child's toy.
