That and it's terrible esthetics. Go see the case on display in a store. It looks cheap and tacky (and I own and love the antec 1200).

It reminds me of this monstrosity...
I think the only real reason it can't have more than 7 is because they wanted to keep it not super duper tall, but fit their mega sized PSUs.

From the front and from a distance, the aesthetics are quite good; in terms of looks though, I think the good points end there. Up close, the build quality of the case looks pretty poor; seems like a cheap plastic front. The rest of the case looks pretty mediocre as well, in my opinion. I don't like the look of the side window, the other side panel was plain and the top of the case looked almost unfinished.

Then there is, in my opinion, the worst part: the hot-swap module at the top of the case. It looks hideous; I don't think it is even a matter of personal taste, it just looks horrible. When the drive hangs over the edge, I think there is a serious problem aesthetically.

Also, there doesn't seem to be a lot of room behind the motherboard. Still enough to work with, but I don't think that the case does anything special to make it easier.

its an odd case to me ,, kinda looks like they were slightly going for a HAF style look in the front ,, those weird drive bay covers on the top are gonna be very annoying ,, being as they will get in the way of your burners doors,, they only include 3 5.25 inch bays ,, yuck, I kind of like all the fans in it , but dunno,,, I dont think its up to par with its price tag right now....... $180 US ,,, for a little more you can get the HAF X with much better features,,

heres a review of it from hardware canucks YouTube- Antec Dark Fleet DF-85 Gaming Case Tech Byte
personally I think its a fail and fast release from antec, not really well thought out, and trying to look like HAF's now,

Oh wow, I took a look at the HAF X at my local store, WAY better case. The fact that it has two 200mm fan slots alone sold it to me.

Sexy case, I like. Not sure about the top 2.5'' sata mount though, think he summed it up well:

"Cool, look at me. I have a 128gb SSD, Yo"
