I've seen the Thor irl (and the Blackhawk Ultra too) (was actually going to buy it before I bought my Switch 810), but its lacklustre build quality overall just put me off it.
If you are going to get the Throne, then you might as well get a Phantom 630/820, both of which are better quality/choices.
The Blackhawk is about the closest competitor to the Switch 810. You do have to mod the daylights out of the case to make it look anywhere near as beautifully designed as the Switch 810 (i.e. start with modding a side window, then modding HDD bay covers, etc.). Its a lot of work, and provides a solid clean slate.
But for overall use, the Switch 810 just really beats those four choices. Yeah, its the crowd favorite, but its there for a reason. It provides the most amount of options in a 'vanilla' state.
Not to mention, unlike Rosewill, NZXT has utterly fantastic support if you ever have any problems (have a rep or two floating around here :P). I broke the power button/HDDActivityLED/OnLED cable while installing my loop in the case, and asked them if I could get a replacement, and that I'd be willing to pay for it. They ended up shipping me a brand new one free. They do tend to go above and beyond compared to Rosewill's support.
And honestly, if you want a unique case, the Switch 810 looks a lot more unique than a gigantic rectangular box with mesh around it.
