no way can you say taht is the best case. each person has their own needs. watercooling v aircooling, style v performance, quietness v cooling etc.

that is a good case to consider but definitely not the best.

I like some of the more expensive Lian-Li cases. They look plain and stylish at the same time. I don't like cases with LEDs

Wait but what's wrong with steel/ plastic? For computer cases they won't break fast. Is it because of static shocks that plastic gives? Cuz you can stop those types of shocks. And the case I'm talking about is the best cooling unit for it's "price".

the LEDs are on the fans.

Also this is not a terible case. NZXT does not make bad cases. I agree that they should have made better choices when it comes to materials but they are well designed with cable management in mind

why can you buy this from dell?

For it's price I'd say there are number of cases available that would do equally well in terms of air cooling.

Plastic tends to look cheap, because they usually use cheap plastics. I doubt anybody cares about it's 'shock' value, it's about looks. You can get a full aluminum case for the same price (albeit generally smaller) which would be my preference as it has a much higher quality design with far better looks - in my opinion.

The Antec 900 is around that price too, and you'll probably find a lot of people would argue for the Antec over the one you posted. To me, they both look ill-conceived, overly flashy, and cheap.

To each his own, I don't think it's really worth arguing for or against it. You like what you like, never will the time come that everyone will agree with you.

And that's a GOOD thing.
