    What a truly horrible case. Its like they couldn't decide to use glass or steel so just went with both and a drunk designer!

    The one and only decent feature of the case.
    Take that and put it into something with decent styling, then I might have been interested!

    Seemingly gone are the days that Corsair made stylish and understated cases.

    Yeah, it's like they swapped places with Thermaltake. Their cases are kinda classy now.

    Re: Corsair launches Carbide Series Spec-Omega RGB PC case

    I can't stand cases that don't have a place for a bluray burner. Yes you can buy external but why? They aren't $800 bucks like years ago (80's), so the expense doesn't mean much especially dvd burners. Even bluray burners are fairly cheap these days. I can't believe that many people don't want SOME kind of burner. This seems like 16:10 monitors all over again, where they remove something from the market for THEIR sake not OURS. It's cheaper to make, so screw the customer. Uh, many of us would pay to get 16:10, and soon I'll say many of us would pay for at least ONE 5.25 bay. I can see not having many cases with more than one, but at times you want a disc. In many cases, I'd rather just give a friend a .50c disc as opposed to loaning them my flash drive that is far more expensive (and fairly wimpy at it's connection point). But hey, maybe that's just me. And yes, I'm complaining about corsair here as they are one of the few cases with filters, and aren't many choices with 1-2 5.25 bays especially if you want 140mm fans. It's not quite as bad a trying to find a 16:10 >24in, but it's still difficult.

    It does look rather plasticy and generally ugly imo. Maybe the photos aren't doing it justice, but I won't be buying one to find out!

    I recently got a Phanteks Enthoo Luxe - Filters everywhere, stylish and fairly understated, three 5.25" bays. Not the cheapest, but the PSU shroud and all the removable/configurable gubbins makes it look very tidy!
