They're most likely referring to the parts coated with Soft Touch which are the top/bottom handles and front panel. The sides do not have Soft Touch, just a metal panel painted white. Not smooth at all.

I ordered some new feets - It was going to happen anyway, due to the modding (Keeping the top handles for carrying around) as I am going for a certain look.

But yah, the case DOES feel slightly wobbly, nothing serious and I am certain it will hold - Though in my case its new feet and some rubber, which funnily enough looks exactly like the handlebars, for the groove that comes from removing the lower handlebar.

As for the paintjob - I have the black one and find it perfect - Though that may be as its the black one and not the white.

I can't setup the rig until the weekend anyways. I have to drain my loop and backup all of my stuff - have to redo my RAID array and reinstall Windows. Massive cleanup time for me biggrin.gif
I can report that the case is incredibly small though. I've never seen a direct comparison between this case and other cases, but with both the top and bottom handles attached, it is half the height of my Haf X and about 2/3 the depth, to put it into some perspective. This is an incredibly small, light, durable case. I'm very happy with my purchase wheee.gif

Now I just need to figure out exactly how I'm going to install my two 620s. I'm thinking one on top for the CPU and one on the back for the GPU. Put a large fan on the front panel and one more 120 on the top... If it'll fit with my fan controller.
So much stuff, so little space redface.gif

bitfenix people are very good and they listen. I have also suggested moving those side panel switches and usb 3 to the front top. I find it a iot harder to remove that panel with all those connections there and to always get up and go around to get to those switches and ports. The current position seems only good for people who have the case on the desk on their left side for easy reach. Also, a removable air filter for the left side panel and smooth/round out the edges on the plastic curved sections because they are far to sharp to hold now, IMO. Cutout the mb tray for cpu backplates and the front plate of the PSU cage for cable assembly. Full mesh fronts on the white cases like the black cases have now.

I still love this case and realize it's their first version and maybe they can do "all" the things we ask for and like in Prodigy II. :-) Anyone want to buy my Prodigy (1) when that happens?

I also have thought about doing diff tall feet and no top handles. the case is so small and I really doesn't need a handle. I also feel the case could be at least an inch or more thinner, side to side.
