    Silly name. Looks like at CM Stacker from 8 years ago, slightly updated (moved the PSU to bottom, turned HD cage sideways, that is about it).

    Other than Lian Li and sometime Silverstone (both of whom I have had quality issues with) is anyone actually designing original cases or simply retreading old designs

    I like the white, but the red writing spoils it a bit for me. It looks a little 1970's sci-fi retro, like something from 2001: Space Odyssey or Alien.

    Looks like a lego model, the same shade blue as old-school lego windscreens! Not my cup-o-tea, I've always preferred simple and functional cases... but it is very distinctive if you like it, got a sort of retro 80s feel to it.

    Do white cases still go yellow over time with the heat like they used in the olden days before black was fashionable for electronics?

    its ugly, white and has a blue tinted window. It might look better in black as the eye will slide over it much easier.

    Hexus folks must be bored these days. Reviewing a generic Chinese manufacturer's case. Really???

    What next? Reviewing Casecom's cases

    Hey, for the price some of their "higher end" cases are pretty damn good! Yes, they're flimsier than more expensive cases, but for they money they can't be beaten!

    Yeah, this review seemed like a foregone conclusion to me, it's the In Win GROAN.
    Sorry that may elicit a few more groans

    Mind you I have heard that some of their cases are OK, like this one:

    Still wouldn't buy it myself mind O_o

    The inside is great, but the big blue window makes it look cheap

    Also E-ATX, not many cases that cheap at that size. However I doubt E-ATX builders are budget constrained.

    Though I might need one if I won a Devil 13 card...
