Looks pretty neat, but a little pricey if that's* all it comes with, would expect a little more in terms of parts and options.

Not a bad idea, but for $150 I would have expected panels to come with it.
No kidding....they cut costs for small shipping item, make you put it together, and can't even supply panels tongue.gif Oh, let's not forget it looks like cheap plastic for a premium price tongue.gif For this deal I would rather make a 2x4 box....cost less and be far more reliable.

Actually I've been tempted many times to take as much scrap wood that I can find at work and build a little pc box. We throw away so much good wood. I'm sure I could put it towards this noble cause lol

I'm going to build one for my media server which will house 40TB worth of HDDs I recently bought. Half will be powered on and the other half will be powered on for backups. thumb.gif Though first plan of attack is to purchase sound deadening materials for my car tongue.gif

I think the big thing that is missing from this product is that it doesn't provide any panels. I would think that they could have tossed in some plexiglass plates or something. the cost of this kit is quite high compared to the base cost of the materials.

Yep exactly what I'm thinking as well. Cheap plastic and they want $150? bigeyedsmiley.png

I mean I wouldn't buy this for even 1/3 the cost because the whole thing just looks awfully flimsy with the amount of cheap plastic in there. And god help you if you try to rig a custom loop in this shanty frame dream box.

Spotswood just uses off the peg Alu extrusion,nothing special tbh,calling it a case is a stretch.
If you want that look but better finished then look at the Thorlabs stuff.

It probably good for prototyping a case maybe the modders would love this
maybe ppl love to have no panels

http://www.dreambox.com.tw/
its made out of metal mostly
certain parts they can do the plastic since they have screw that go into bars w holes

I agree it should not cost 150 but that Mfr suggested
will see when newegg or amazon picks it up
price will come down in 5mns

here a video that show the parts in detail pardon its not in english
and you have to scroll to left to see the begining

Those pressure fit loops that hold the most of the addons like the PSU and GPU in look like they would not be very sturdy at all.
