NOT a good start, on the EGG no less. LOL! Not what we wanted CM!
Maybe its just me but the front of the case looks sooo cheap. I'm so confused why they designed it like that. Makes me think of Alienware

They designed it that way because they don't listen to us.

I agree. The case is a dissapointment.

Reviews on Newegg can be taken with a grain of salt, but most of them for this case so far are disappointed as well.

It's not like it's a horrible case. All of the internals are spot on and better for an case that only cost's $89. It's just the door design. The one shot on Newegg that has the door open and is shot from the front. That doesn't look bad to me, but then I imagine how it would look from the side without the door and those crossbars jutting out and I think ugh!

EDIT: I just watched the video review by the Hardware Canucks and basically it's just a HAF 912 with a full black paint job, standardized USB 3.0 motherboard support and some butt ugly plastic.

A can of self etching primer and a two cans of satin black at the cost of about $15 and BAM!! Fully modular case with a black interior for $20 less than the ugly-ass enforcer.

After recently using a HAF 912 for my buddies build, I could go for that. No more WC design woes for the Scout and no more having worry about large vid cards. WIN-WIN!!!

I really don't believe that in this down turned global economy are we ever gonna get a Scout II

Have to agree with you. If I am to do another build I'm going to get the HAF 912. I'm thinking about building my gf a computer so I'm on the fence whether I should order the HAF for myself and give her my Scout

I know that pain. I'm wanting a graphite 600t, but will probably get a 912 and start off painting. What to do with the Scout....

You are right, the last couple years before my Dad retired, the place he worked for was flying him to China to teach them how to design stuff for nuclear components for power plants. Funny thing is, the US Gov wanted to talk to him first, lol.

I'm feeling the same, CM last said wait for Computex 2011 and what did we get a headset, PSU with a fan controller, mechanical keyboard, and a couple CPU coolers. The good stuff was still under NDA, amongst them a new Cosmos chassis hat is the bomb really. It got delayed along with another chassis (the new ATCS) and thus could not make Computex launch time.
