Whats wrong with the Haf and Dark Fleet cases?!!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi, so after looking around on these forums for a while it has come to my attention that a lot of you don't like the HAF 912 Advanced or any of the Dark Fleet cases, i have to ask why is this? i think they are good looking cases with a very bold look. Also, it seems that some also don't like side windows, why is that?.

Lets get the arguments going

(EDIT - I changed the title because the other reason this thread was opened, to tell what you favorite case is, already has a thread, as posted below.)

I think a lot of people prefer a clean looking case, which the HAF and DF cases surely aren't.

I'd say they have polarizing aesthetics. You're either going to love or hate them. They're not to my taste but they're very functional cases.

DF cases = terrible build quality
HAF cases = all go, no show (not easy on the eye, too flashy)

speaking as the owner of a haf-x, yes it's not the best looking case but for function it is great, plenty of room for building your system, good airflow, easy cable management and it can take a 360 rad.
plenty of so called nice cases out there that miss 1 or 2 of these features.

p.s I don't know whats flashy about a haf
