    Who would put this on a desk and let others see it? Reply

    Agreed, this case is one of the ugliest cases I have ever seen.

    I don't even think I would hide this under my desk for fear of visitors accidentally looking under it and seeing this thing.

    Yeah, this is one of the ugliest cases I've seen in a long while. Reply

    We keep saying this every new case review. Are we just a vocal minority? Are there lurkers who really like these cases? Is there some bet with the reviewer that they can't possibly find an even uglier case to review. I'm hoping we have finally hit bottom. Reply

    Is there really a market for cases that look like Transformers' abortions? :/ Reply
  • deneb - Monday, October 29, 2012 - link

    There is, for people with a lack of eyesight. Really, this is one of the ugliest cases I've seen as well. Reply

    If noone bought these monstrosities the companies who designed them would've gone bust years ago?

    Perhaps the Cthulu cult is going hightech.

    Please review some cases that an adult might actually consider purchasing. This may be the ugliest thing I've ever seen. Reply

    This must have looked well on paper because i can't explain how a design like this was chosen.
    Will you review the 200R ?

    That is the ugliest case I've ever seen. It's worse than your average 90s beige tower with bulbous plastic fronts. What the hell? Reply

    ...dragons or girls holding big guns on it.

    Good Grud that's awful.

    "the USB 3.0 header cable actually includes an alternate USB 2.0 header built into it, both convenient features."

    Every case maker in the world needs to copy this feature ASAP instead of copping out with 2x3.0 and 2x2.0 ports on the front that are going to become a liability in a few years when even your USB Christmas tree us designed to use 3.0.

    This case is ugly. In fact, it's so ugly that it's probably gonna give me nightmares. It's a horrible monstrosity and an abomination and it needs to die. Reply
  • Orvtrebor - Monday, October 29, 2012 - link

    An 8yr old would love this case.

    I'm not being sarcastic, throw on a healthy dose of led's and you've got a gaming case that a kid would truly be proud of.

    Not every case is meant to be used in a professional office environment or a tastefully done den/gaming room.

    If they were targeting the younger market, they should have at least been consistent. The front and the main body look like they're from two different cases. They should've at least made gratuitous use of non-right angles, plastic, and jagged edges on the main body if they were selling this to young children building their own rigs. Reply

    I like the looks of it and I might buy one. After all I almost bought a Pontiac Aztek. Reply

    Don't knock the Aztek! The ideal vehicle for the budding meth cook.. Reply

    Perhaps it's time to start sharing with these companies what are views are on a perfect case.

    For me I'd like something smaller along the lines of Silverstone's Temjin TJ08 but with a window to show off the build. Must have dust filters.. a removable motherboard tray would be nice (like the older lian-li's) Antec's usage (and coolermaster's) hard drive mounting system) generous space behind the motherboard for hiding wires.. Looks wise? should be more refined and tastefull. I like lighted fans but their something I prefer to put in myself if the build warrants it.

    Hits in the past for me were:
    Lianli PC60A
    Antec Super lanBoy (original not those horrors they released last year)
    Antec Sonata 1/2/3 (no .. it wasn't silent)
    CoolerMaster Storm Scout
    Corsair Carbite 600T

    oh btw.. it doesn't have to have alot of fans.. front back top make them easily accessable to. Reply

    So get a Fractal Design Define R4 with the windowed side panel. Done. Reply
  • piroroadkill - Tuesday, October 30, 2012 - link

    Here, even did the work to find it on newegg for you.

    lol.. there was no need. I am aware of Fractal Design's cases. We just started getting them here. The R4 is a nice case and priced fairly well but it has the door which is a star off in my opinion. I do however like their mini. It's very much on par with the Temjin from Silverstone. Both lack windows and while the silverstone does have a removable mb tray it's not really up to what some might be used to with older Lian-Li designs. Reply

    I can only come up with one word for my reaction to this case. I didn't even bother to read the rest of the review. I can't see anyone over the age of 14 wanting this. Reply
  • Telset - Monday, October 29, 2012 - link

    Seriously are these the same people that made the cool cougar evolution case?
    I have the cougar evolution its awesome. But this is kinda ugly but probably looks better with 2 fans on the top to make it more uniform.

    From the article-- "...these smaller companies are often very hungry for your business and are typically willing to take risks. The result is that oftentimes you can find diamonds in the rough and bring to light a product that people might otherwise miss."

    I don't think this hideous monstrosity is anything close to a diamond, in the rough or not, and certainly wouldn't be missed by anyone.

    Hideous.

    The mobo area and rear panel look like the exact same parts as a 300R. They should have copied the rest too. Reply

    This thing beyond hideous. Reply
  • Bonesdad - Monday, October 29, 2012 - link

    REALLY?

    How does a case like this even find it's way to getting a review on Anandtech? Someone needs to preview these reviews and just say "Ah, no....we aren't running with this."

    This thing is an embarrassment to Transformers everywhere.

    Just stop doing reviews on crap like this, you should know it when you see it by now.

    I like this case. It looks different and retro. Reply
  • buzznut - Tuesday, October 30, 2012 - link

    I was actually waiting to see what the reviewer said about the aesthetics. There's being politically correct, and then there's simply stating the obvious. Most of us would not want this anywhere near our desk.

    I happen to like flashy gaming cases, I'm a modder and I really dig a unique look. I fail to see what they were going for here though, even the different parts don't really seem to go together.

    Its sorta like someone came along a stack of disparate parts and told his R&D team, "See if you can make something out of this stuff. You got two hours."

    And they said my Thermaltake Level 10 GT Snow was ugly ?? C'mon man, this redefines fugly. Reply

    1. Orange is my favorite color. This case looks cool. Like a hot Euro-Trash Babe. Almost full tower size this casi is BIG for a mid tower. Takes the new 280mm Liquid coolers in push pull and plenty of room. takes up to 400 mm video card and still hold hd drives and 5.25 bays. I love it. Comment. A. As the song says, "Make an ugly womean your wife". B- whats ugly to one is sexy to another. Reply
