    In Win tòu 2.0 signature tempered glass chassis launched

    Dual-mirror transparency effects remain, modern accoutrements added.

    I feel the same way about all these tempered glass panels as most of Hexus feels about RGB...

    I suppose it takes all sorts and some will no doubt like this idea, but on a case I have with just a single glass panel in the side, the very first thing I did was paint over it. The second was disconnect a load of pointless blue LED's.

    Personally, a case is a functional object not an artwork or a fashion statement, and should be as unobtrusive as possible. I want smooth edges, having sliced fingers open on poorly machined edges too often, easy access for removing panels and intelligent design to maximise use of space for storage and cooling.

    As for a case that's bearable powered off, and butt-ugly the moment you turn it on .... no, thanks. Not even if they gave them away. I'd rather buy a case that wasn't such a show-off.

    Ugly, strange nonsensical angles and bulges.

    Huge, it's as voluminous as a slimline dishwasher.

    Heavy, 16kg? Goodness.

    Cost? TBC, but who cares at this stage.

    I might be old school but I like an internal DVD/BlueRay so not for me.

    I am glad it is a limited edition. Christ on a bike, this case is ugly...

    See, if it was perspex or something less breakable, I'd be happy. It's only the fragile nature of the glass that gets me...

    I wonder how many anti-RGB users drive dull, boring, ugly cars, too...

    5mm tempered glass will be stronger than perspex.

    Why did you buy a case with a glass panel and lights?

    Perspex type stuff flexes and won't shatter from me accidentally being too heavy-handed with it...

    I'm losing it with all this led stuff inside PC's , last thing I want when using one is the distraction of a semi disco going off. You might as well leave the side cover off and stuff a Christmas tree in there. lol.

    A pretty dull preview video for the chassis, considering the eye-catching potential

    I guess it would be cheaper than paying a premium for a few led lights on new parts. Personally I'll stick with my old Lian Li X500, I can live without upgrading to a case you can see into (when I'd be looking at the screen when using the PC....).
