Hmm I want a case labs but shipping makes the price really expensive, so for tt to do this is a bonus for the consumer around the world.

Plus it looks like a 900D

U can add Corsair's Air 240 to the list of TT's copying. The V21 takes some of the 240's ideas. But anyway, the X series looks kinda different from CL's Mercury. Same goes for the V21.

I'm going to purchase a pedestal for my SM8

http://www.caselabs-store.com/pedestal-merlin-sm8-st10/

For the front Flex Bay, I don't know which option would be better - Solid or Ventilated.

I'm going to put 2x 480's in the pedestal, I'd like to know which option would be the best for exhausting hot air...

Assuming you're exhausting out the rear, I would think block the front. If you don't block the front, put an intake fan there. You don't want to exhaust hot air out the front of the pedestal to be sucked into your front flexbay rad

Yes there is inspiration - ideas that get taken and modified and twisted and turned. It's just the sheer audacity, scale of it and lazyness that bugs me.

It' like you photocopied your buddies homework and just crossed his name out and put yours underneath and thought you could get away with it. Here's the thing - they could have asked about licensing the design. They could have payed a royalty in order to do this legally. They don't need to be this kind of shade in order to survive and make money. Now their shadyness is fully revealed and I hope the world sees what they truly are and acts accordingly.

Yes there will always be some unheard of company usually in China making knockoffs - just look at the fashion industry. But this is a major international company fronting as more than that, and it makes major money off the work of others.

BTW my write up on this was up last night, but you know OCN rules can't link it yadda yadda

But if nobody copied/reverse engineered wouldnt you then create monopoly positions ?

Maybe this will make Caselabs strive to be even more distenquised and come out with new and better stuff.
Maybe drive them in better offshore distribution to wich is a plus for me wink.gif

Btw,
I am not so much about strict rules, you can link me anything....

If i can get a similar like case for a few hundred euro cheaper then why is it a bad thing ?

Bad for Caselabs maybe but for me ? No.

Maybe this will drive Caselabs to a better and cheaper global distubution.

For us custumors a win/win situation.

You may all disagree but this is my point of view sorry.....



I don't care if this happens all the time.

It's a bit gobsmackering, frankly.

So you're in Europe, so you need an Int'l company to wreck U.S. national company's business to give you a product because you're too cheap to pony up for the real thing?

Well, THAT'S not CL's problem either.

CaseLabs does good business because they don't cater to dime-a-dozen Marys looking for the next Chicken-o-the-Sea can to slap some parts in.

For us actual CL customers, it's actually a loser.



Thanks - T

Exactly,

Thermaltake isn't robin hood bringing gifts to the poor, they are showing bad integrity and not really doing anything for the community other than try to sponge some market share while doing NO work for it.

NO. It's called priorities. Just because YOU can afford a CL and i can't, doesn't mean im cheap.

I appreciate good quality and don't mind buying it, if I deemed it's worth it for me. I have no problem saving up and buying one. But a hefty shipping + duties + taxes from the importing country makes it much more expensive. More so almost half of what the original case.

Do i blame CL for that? ABSOLUTELY NOT. That's not their problem. But with those added cost, its a very important factor in purchasing a very expensive item.

I don't advocate Tt for ripping off other manufacturers design. I personally believe its a douche move and another reason for me not to spend my money on them.

But for someone that has a limited budget that still want a simliar design but an affordable price point - i dont blame them for getting one.
