Okay............................................................., Drum roll!

 

 

Today this is how my HAF XB (Take 3) case was delivered by FEDEX.

 

Let me stress: THIS IMO IS HOW ANY NEW COMPUTER CASE SHOULD BE PACKED!

 

This is the fruit of the extra effort:

 

 

Look how almost perfect this case box looks!  If there was only an option upon ordering in that for "x" amount more new computer cases could be packed and shipped this way.

 

700

 

 

Upon inspection of this case, it's a keeper but not without me eRMA-ing for a left side panel in which where the top securing screw hole the manufacture of the panel is "funky" in that the sheet metal of that area is dented a little and as well not cut in a straight line to the rest of that fold so that part doesn't sit flush when tightened.  Also one of the Hot Swap bays need to be replaced as the open and close mechanism is not working great to lock it into place on the front chassis.  

 

EDIT: It's no longer a keeper, here's why:

 

 

Upon moving the 2.5" cage I found bubbled up paint which is loose which you see above.

 

I'm sick of this!

 

Another send back and replacement.

Thanks! The CM logo wouldn't bother me except it has teal on it. I initially just covered that logo with the EVGA sticker, but then both Of them just fell off, so I took my spare and filled that gap.

I initially planned on just getting extensions or a Corsair unit with their aftermarket sleeves...but one of my other hobbies is working with paracord and I had a couple 100' hanks of the cord with the reflective tracers and thought it would create a unique look.

Yeah, not every case will be absolutely flawless. But it's your money. (that return shipping has to be adding up).

Nope return shipping is covered because of defects.

Yes, my brothers HAF XB case came from Newegg with no problems but at the time it was with free shipping plus tax as we here in NJ pay sales tax on Newegg orders.  However manufacturer defects doesn't choose a vendor.

 

One more time with Amazon picking up (via UPS) on Monday and another replacement to be sent (have prime trial) and if that case (take 4) is no good I'm either forgetting about this case or await another option.

 

I have other Cooler Master cases (not ordered via Newegg) and never went through the BS I'm going through trying to get a decent enough HAF XB case.

Maybe your just being too picky for a $100 case. Its not like you will ever see that paint bubble anyway. If you are worried about it, sand it down and paint over it.

Trouble is that paint is bubbled and loose as well as a new case shouldn't have to go through the trouble sanding down and repainting it.

 

If I was repainting the case a different color of course this wouldn't be an issue.

 

The three cases I've received so far, my brothers HAF XB is in a different league those were "that bad".

 

My HAF 912 case @ $37.xx when purchased came delivered beautiful compared to those HAF XB's received so far.
