Here is a link that has some info:

Adding a window is fairly easy. Just make sure you do the following:
  1. Tape off (blue painters tape) the area that will remain.
  2. Take care when cutting so that you do not warp or deform the case material.
  3. Take a small file or emery board to the edges to remove any burrs.

#'s 1 and 2 are important for a professional looking job.

I used a pair of tin snips to cut the hole. The Dremel was threatening to warp the case material (maybe the bit needs replacing).

Here is a link to some kits that are inexpensive:

Here is a pic of the window I installed that I purchased from the site above:


Hope this helps.

I dont know anything about the cases. but FWIW, I got my case through ATXcases.com and had no problems. Spoke with them on the phone a few times and very friendly. trustworthy.
