    I actually think that as horrible, fugly cases go it's quite attractive - one to recommend to the people who actually like those cases?

    I think it looks alright. I wouldn't have it on my desk, but looks ok.

    It looks like they gave a 2 year old a set of coloured crayons, and swapped out the blue for black...

    It's horrendous

    Fugly cases like this are so last year. We need something stylish and ninja-like for 2010.

    Saw it over at XS, that has got to be the UGLIEST case I have ever seen, the Antec 600 now holds the second place.

    Did they fire the entire designdepartment?

    That's one of the ugliest cases I've ever seen. Probably appeals to 14 year old boys however.

    I'm going to be the odd man out here. I like it. Bit pricey but it appeals to me .

    I don't like the case as a whole, but there's some good possibilities to do something with it. I especially like the HDD-mounting in this one.

    If it has LAN in the name shouldn't it have a carry handle?

    Horrible thing. Looks like it was made out of scrap angle iron by Chinese slaves - oh, hang on a sec

    @ mrdbristol, maybe if it was completely Black? ....nah

    @ Andersen1337, I can't help, but wonder thatl!

    The industrial design is begging for handles.

    I'd much rather have my old beige AOpen than that thing, It should come with a paper bag, so no one can see it's you using it.

    But that defeats the purpose of all those vents!

    Looks like Thermaltake designers got a new job..

    Or maybe it was a bet?
