Save a bit more money and get a CM Storm sniper Black edition. Best Mid tower case.

Not even close lol.

I can think of like 5 off the top of my head that are way better: V1020R, pc-x1000, pc-b10 , pc-x900, and this

My thoughts exactly. Plus, if I wanted a "Gamers" case I would just buy an Antec 300 or a CM Storm Scout. Both of which are less visually offensive and better quality than the Strom Sniper.

Just curious, what makes the Storm Sniper visually offensive in your opinion?

What's the quality issue(s) with this case?

BTW: I don't own one.

Probably the fact that it just looks bloated and over stylized. Like CM tried too hard to make a case that looks understated but flashy and failed.
As for the quality issues I don't really know.

Too "plasticized" maybe?

Kind of. I cant really explain it.
I look at it and think plastic square balloon. Its just lumpy in weird places and roundish. But it also looks like CM tried to make a stylish and minimalist case like the 690 II (with LED fan off) and lost their way.

Bunch of cooler master haters! lol Kidding
but
Do you know about the special little Referb page CM has? I've seen some Crazy deals in there.

Well never the less Amazon also has good deals if you look hard enough. I got 2 NZXT 120mm fans for 6$ each. the nice white ones, free shipping.

I got my cosmos for 99$ referbed and it was pretty much Brand New
