Here is the kind of money i spent for my caselabs parts so far
1st Order: 846.15 $ parts, 177.25$ Shipping, 99.04 EUR VAT
2nd Order: 222.30$ parts, 63.45$ Shipping, and 40.73 EUR VAT.
Total 1049.62 EUR including shipping and an additional 139.77 EUR on Shipping, for a Grand Total of 1189.39 EUR.
A ton of Money for just a Case, one might be inclined to say. One might also be inclined to say one can find cases at 50 EUR, but Case Labs cases are not just any Computer Case.
SUre, the price is high, the additional shipping cost also adds up, and on top of that come the VAT as i live in Germany, but after all of it, when one gazes at the Case and the possibilities it offers, what i say to myself, the hell with the money !
It makes Thermaltake Cases, (once seen by me in 2006 - when i made my first Desktop with the first money that i earned - with a Antec case) look like an olds man Fart in comparison.
Nothing on the market even comes Close, and since i have a weakness, always wanting what is at the pinacle of man's creation, (here we are at an disadvantage, as we, the public "mortals", have access to a level of technology that is on average 10000 years behind what the goverments have acces to(and here i am not reffering all the goverments, but the secret goverment that rules this world), and even the most advanced Computers and systems that you ever knew existed are, as i said above, an olds man Fart in comparison, - but this is a discussion that has no place on this forum), i had to order me a Case Labs Case, dammned be the money and the time i spend earning them.
As you imagine, Wife was not as excited as myself, i initially lured her away with the on site Price of the STH10, look darling it costs 569.95 and thats Dollar, convert that in Euros and its even less !!!
Buuuuuuul. s.h. it !!!!
Had i told her then that i were to spend in the end 1190 EURO on only the Case, - when one can get to himself a decent laptopt with these money, in fact my friend just got recently a lapt0p and he spend aprox 1200 euros, with core i7 2620qm 10gb ram, and geforce 570m, pretty decent machine, - i would have probably never have received her blessings in the first place.
Well, Harm is done, money is gone, the case is here to stay !
Do yourself a favor, and buy a caselabs case. I am not here to make publicity, i am merely pointing out what i sincerely believe is the best case mortal beeings such as ourselves have acces to !
And i praise it so much because what makes it so valuable in my eyes are its endless possiblities of customization. Because i am one of those people who is not content in buying something that is already ready, meaning, you buy X case, you have to make do with what its makers thought of it, and if you want something more, something more tailored to your needs, then its tough luck.
I want to be able to make my own arrangements inside the case, move stuff and arrange as i see fit, not as someone saw fit just so that it (the one who made the case) could fit said case in a say 100$ budget.
Caselabs Cases are the only cases who offer these possibilities.
I often said to myself, if i were ever to design computer cases, it would very much be like a Caselabs Case. I have nothing to complain.
That beeing said, i am looking forward to seeing pictures of this build ! Oh, and i added this text in the review section on caselabs website.
Keep up the good work !
