Even compared against the Silent Base 801 from bequiet! it's hard to justify the additional $100. Being priced at $229 would have sealed the deal for the additional features like the Qi charger and the USB 3.1 Type C Gen 2 connection.
While I agree this case could probably be a little less expensive, if it's anything like the thought put into their fans and heatsinks it's probably well worth it. I really don't see how a comparison could be made to either the Lian Li PC-011 or the Cooler Master H500 Mesh though. They're big cases, but to me that's about where the comparison stops.

I've been eyeing this case for a while and am thinking of doing a Threadripper build in her. With the exception of somewhat constricted airflow compared to some 'open' cases, I think this has to be one of the best-featured full-sized cases I've seen in quite some time.
