Though there doesn't seem to be a set-in-stone standard for review awards, there is definitely some method in the madness (sorry about semi-OT)

I like white cases like the next guy, but I don't like the mix on this case. My immediate urge was to add that window Tom was on about and paint the middle white.

Looks like a nice case though. Removable hard drive cages kick ass. So A77F and K9, those kinds of things.

was it me or when the first hdd cage was removed, the case seemed to lose a ton of its rigidity?

the frame of it all seemed to start bending under minor pressure

Yeah in the video it seems to warp a tiny bit when he's leaning it towards the camera.
