    I actually like the black and orange colour scheme!

    I like the fact you can release the filter for cleaning easily as it's a bit of a nightmare with my antec 1200. Also a fan of the overall minimalistic look to the case.

    I like the colors (org/blk), the optimized airflow and the noise reducing build.

    I like how all the fans are not visible from the user some people even have a phobia for it.

    The external design of the case is sublime. The front panel looks sleek and the fans can be easily seen and accessible. If only the price tag was a bit lower...:)

    A conformist, middle of the road enclosure which seeks to please most of the people, most of the time, but might well leave many disenchanted at the price. Underwhelming though it may be, it's greatest asset could well prove to be it's easiness on the ear and a potentially living room friendly profile.

    Given the competitive market space that this case is being squeezed into though, perhaps Be Quiet! could Be Bolder!

    I like that some simple improvement that I miss on other cases.
    The switchable door for instance, all cases should have this.
    I also like the extra vents that have covers as standart.

    The cooling values aren't great though compared to the Nanoxia's though.

    Couldn't the fans be controlled via the motherboard?

    Spectacular case, really looking forward to matx size. It's quite difficult to find top end matx case at nowadays and I believe that Be Quiet! can bring it to us.

    I actually like the looks. Sleek, but with some details and not just a block of black metal and plastic.

    I like the design and seems like Be Quiet has taken steps to make the case even more silent by using anti-vibration rubber on HDD bays, screws and rubber grommets for cable management.
    Seems like a great product overall.

    Yeah, the shape as well makes it look like it should be sat under someone's desk in the Citadel

    I didnt think i'd like orange and black, but it does look nice, although i'd have to work on my cable-fu, my case is a mess inside right now.

    I love the drive mounting hardware and how the cable management lines up perfectly with it. (I wish my current case was as thoughtful.)

    Does anyone sell Be Quiet! in the USA?

    The black and orange works quite well, would look good with some orange fans fitted. Its a case that's just screaming out to be modded.

    According to Be Quiet's own website, aside from Amazon, only two places in the US sell Be Quiet stuff:
    Performance PCs
    NCIX
    although neither of them have this case in yet (it's available for pre-order from NCIX)
