    I think there are two schools of computer case love, one is the magpie-style love of shiny things. Everything has to have LED's and cathodes, windows and sharp exciting angles.

    The second is those who watch 2001: A Space Odyssey, look at the obelisk and think "Hmm... I like that." Sleek, clean lines, maybe a window, but no lights or tinsel.

    Personally I fall into the 2nd category. If I was trapped in hell I'd have a role as product tester at Thermaltake, working on their latest snazzy cases.

    there's also the cases that are whitey/grey with dust and dirt and the dull silver insides which shred you hands to pieces!

    Some of TT's cases have become more normal, but a lot of the full tower cases are still hideous imo. I'm not a hater, everyone likes different things, but I definitely won't be buying one of their case products.

    Except I think the HAF series looks like butts. I buy Lian-Li for form and function.

    I hate unnecessary and bright leds. I absolutely just hate them. Especially the blue ones. Disgusting.

    For case I'm using Silverstone Fortress FT02 (with the power/hdd leds not connected) and to me that's as "form over function" as it gets. I think we may not share the same taste.

    woah woah woah... slow down mister! not everyone is keen on LED's.... and maybe the colour blue... but not as far as "Disgusting" -

    I think that LED's can look awsome IF
    1. they are used in good areas and don't look tacky
    2. they are all the same colour
    3.The can be turned off and on
    4.there's not too much LEDS

    for instance i have the Cooler Master CM 690 II advanced.. and its a pretty slick case... but comes with a LED fan in the front... so i got blue Led fans for the side and top of the case... which can be turned off and on by a button!
    - it dosn't look too bad, but dosn't look great however i've seen some cases on the internet which look awesome! its all about neatness and themes
