Very interesting design, but too much plastic and not enough expansion slots...plus too expensive.

The seekermeister is right, needs less of the shiny plastic.

Nothing really beats Coolermaster Stacker Evo with its brilliant Reversed-ATX installation, especially if your computer sits on the left side

worst case ever, would preffer to keep the PC in a ghetto cardboard box then buy another stacker case.

I don't think the HDD's have enough air flow.

I like the design but the look leaves something to be desired, IMO.

I like the hard drive configuration. I've got a 4*3.5" internal hotswap enclosure in 3*5.25 bays right now, which cost me $100 or so. There's one 80mm fan on the back and it keeps all 4 drives (3*WD1001FALS, 1*ST31000340AS) around 40c. I'd expect front mounted fans covering only 3 drives to do a better job and blow cooler air.

Once you learn how brilliant air-flow and cooling reversed-ATX installation offers (CPU at the bottom, GPU on top), you will never go back. It is similar to BTX layout, which has many advantages, but uses standard mobo layouts.

CoolerMaster, Lian-Li, Silverstone make those.

Stacker 830 Evo can use reversed-ATX, standard ATX, has removable tray. Hard to find a better case
