What do you think about this case?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
This is a case from a new company called bitfénix. They are new in the market and they seem to have alot of quality. I might get this case, which looks OK, but what do you think of it?

And there's a retractable handle:

These are coming to the states if they aren't already!

Well, it certainly is clean looking. I could do without the gadgety pop up handle in favor of a fan.

Looks pretty good. Some of the design is a little different then the norm, but I guess that's a good thing

There's a fan under it.

Not a fan of Bitfenix from what I've seen from them thus far. I guess there's a market for the "Gamer" style cases, and it's just not my thing. Personal Preference.

I will say, at least, it doesn't copy the Antec/CM formula. Which is nice in and of itself.

I think I would like it more if they put something more useful where the handle is, like a hidden port panel (few USB, firewire, etc), and there wasn't a giant red "Fenix" on the front.

I do not like the looks of that handle. I would not want my expensive rig hanging from a piece of plastic that is only secured at one end and appears to only have a single small bolt holding it together.

I do like the large motherboard cutout behind the cpu. I have been confused why other manufacturers make the cutout so small. Cable management looks nice.

The only question is the price.
