Superb review as always Tom. I completely agree with the price, its LianLi, Silverstone TJ\FT money and for the connoisseur, IMO they are much better suited.

Great review as always.

It's just a bit bland; design is pretty average and doesn't really improve on the Switch's feature set. IMO this should be less than or equal to the price of the Switch.

Too expensive!!! And i´am also referring to the switch 810! Imho i think they are justifying the price by having a very good water cooling configuration but that it´s not a valid price defense. For the rest of the options ( quality, cable management etc,etc...) for me it´s almost the same case like an Aerocool Xpredator that is also almost half the price.

I am with you guys 100% on that... I hope they don't discontinue the original Phantom. That foot thing on the bottom... I know that its for air flow to the optional rad on the bottom... But its so weird looking. And the window and vents on the side panel are too oddly shaped...
