    People just don't have the money to splash out on nice cases, which is Vadim's main selling point.

    If I had the money, I would for sure buy Vadim (brand is strong), any guesses how much hes selling for?

    Nope.. People have the money splash out on crap cases and then some DIY tools to make it better!

    Got to agree here that they literally priced themselves out of the market. As nice as some of their systems looked, enthusiasts know that a £5000 rig is going to be worth less than half that within 12 - 18 months.

    It's always sad to see a company go under, but there is such a thing as trying TOO hard.

    You must be joking right?

    How can someone not have the money to buy a "nice case" (Vadim use Lian Li) BUT use £5000 for an entire system?

    I remember the first BT review and seeing how they used hot glue to secure the window....tut tut tut!

    Sad to see them go down the tube but they have a really small market. People are becoming more and computer savy and are willing to give DIY building a try.
