Cases are ugly. Sure they can have nice features and such. But as I've said before, this is a perfect opportunity to get the Tom's models in on the action.

Shame that more cases don't have eSATA on the front panel. I know some people prefer USB 3.0, but why not have them both?

Don't like these cases at all. Basically I hate the fact that cases hide so much of the beautiful hardware inside the PC, and make it hard to work with them, to be able to touch and feel them. I've always been running a no-case system, but I would really like something basic so it's convenient to carry it around.

Does anyone know where I can buy a case like this one here:

Better question animeman59: What's wrong with you?
halcyon, if you don't like these there are seven more in the 11-way comparison, 4 in the past and 3 on the way!
chrisafp07--and it's already been reviewed "sometimes" http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/corsair-obsidian-55...
Guys, I've never had to say this before but I'm really looking for a higher class of question. I know you can do better because I've seen it in past articles.

One case per company,so probably you'll see the 922. Rosewill and silverstone are through,so that leaves the others

Where are the mATX or even better mITX cases? I keep seeing these articles and it's always full towers or mid-towers.

My Cooler Master CM Stacker 830 is still fine in my book, getting ready to build a new Intel Gaming Rig as soon as my order arrives from Newegg.

As for a better question, well that depends on who is asking what.

Cases/Chassis' are very subjective in the looks department, one of my cases is a full tower Raidmax Platinum that I use for my file server needs, very functional but had one thing I hated, freaking LED Fans.

I know some folks like these but they were too bright for me, I clipped the LED's and left the fan's enabled and all is good to go.

This is one area I have noticed a lot with cases in the past decade or so, the LED fans.

To me these should always be an option as I know there are plenty of folks who like these things, but to me they are like low riders that have the underside lamps that keep a beat with the thumping music.

Thanks a ton! Have decided to go for this case, as it's very modular and still quite open. :)

I want to know which case is better. Bitfenix Shinobi or Fractal Design Define R4. In any of the aspects like cooling, design quality and others. Any opinions?
