A quick moan about my Enermax case.

SO.

I have a enermax case which has driven me up the bend. Its poorly built, noisy, the front panel had strands of glue on it (right near my radiator, GG). Some of the ideas, I MEAN SOME are actually quite smart (side mounting the hdds) but I don't like a computer that sounds like a radiator.

loose mesh:


Side panels that don't fit properly (its either attach it properly on the top or the bottom), oh the mesh is a pain to clean as well but thats probably my fault:


I also could complain about the hot swap drive thing not working but at the end of the day, meh.
Why haven't I returned it? Oh I bought it from WAE+ and it was a pain just getting it here in the first place (it arrived dusty from Germany) and I gave up trying to get a reply from either party. Are all enermax cases like this? I hope not. Has anyone else had/got an enermax case who can confirm they're actually well built? Take this as a warning, don't get enermax cases.

Was the case cheaply built from the start?

Well then again they don't exactly stand out as the brand to get for cases so cheaper materials are expected.

I had found nothing but positive reviews for them :l. I guess thats what happens when you stray off the beaten path, as such.

It may have been true but reviews only review for a day or two and sometimes don't consider the longevity of a product.

yeah but then again it brings the question of how much do you trust reviews? Point in hand I wasn't too impressed when I've worked with the 350D.

I guess I better stick with Coolermaster, Fractal and silverstone for my next case. I hate it when things like these don't work :l.

I only read reviews to learn about a product. I don't exactly take their word 100% and stick to only brands I know are good.

Yeah I did that with my CPU and cooler (as in made my own decision about them) but I guess I should've done that with my case as well. Ho hum. This was more of a heads up for people looking up about getting these cases.
