I purchased one, but now I am worried they are going to ship the older model. Why would a brand new model be on sale for $49.99? They are also the only reseller I can find that has them in stock. Seems worrisome, no?
When I purchased, there is a "comment box". I put in it... "Please make sure this is the model listed. I specifically need the USB 3.0 model."
Yeah, I don't know what the deal was with such a drastic discount before they were even officially released in the US. I was psyched when it actually arrived as I was fully expecting the 2.0USB model and a screw up.
I am happy with the case. Its very quiet.
Its still a sub $100 dollar case, mind you. It is pretty minimalistic. But, I like the fact that it seems like it was put together by hand, but well. The paint job is matte, and seems hand painted, but nicely done. Its a little rough around the edges (not literally) but I find that for having paid 60 dollars including shipping it is one of the better cases I have owned.
