It's a shame about the flimsy HDD cages as the layout looks great, been looking at getting a Phantom for a while as I like the design and the features on offer. It's a shame also that the drive bay setup wasn't put into the last Phantom as that would make it perfect for my needs...

Shall we just change the name of the site to 'Matt and Antony tech'? I vote yes.

I actually really like those Alienware designs! Especially the one with the vents on top!

Always loved the design of these cases, shame the build quality is crap!

I have the original phantom.. this case looks way better. Mount up the missing fans and I think results would change some in the cooling tests.

I don't get it why everybody is still obsessed with those plasticy pimp-my-pc cases that are quite expensive too. It's a box for putting in stuff that computes numbers for gods sake! Lamborghini style vents and an aerodynamic shape won't make your pc any faster. Maybe those designs appeal to the average 14 year old gamer, but those use XBOXes and PS3s instead of a PC anyways I guess... Case designers: PLEASE look at Apple to see how clean, stylish and functional design is done - no, I'm not an Apple fanboy, but they have absolutely mastered the art of designing products that you just want to have because they look gorgeous. And they achieve that without looking like a transformer on steroids.

Yeah, it's the same with Aston Martin - why do they give it a hand-stitched leather interior? It isn't going to make it go any faster, is it now?

/sarcasm

What, so you wouldn't prefer it if we all wore white polo neck t-shorts, drove identical white Minis and lived in identical white semi-detached houses?

All the while staring adoringly at our Mac cases?

Variety is the spice of life syggy, it gives us the ultimate luxury - choice.

I don't want everybody to use the same. I just think that most of the cases look like they were designed by a 13yo. This case isn't that bad, but still...
What I love with apple products is that you can see the craftsmenship and thought that went into it. Most pc enclosures don't show this. Only Origen AE, Lian Li and few others come close to this.
