I think a lot of us just feel that Corsair has noticeably dropped in quality over the past few years, as far as their cases are concerned. They ask a premium price for a sub-par product (ie the 900D). Once you start asking that kind of money, expect some backlash, considering the alternatives. Consumers can't NOT look at Case Labs or other premium cases at this price point.

Agreed about brand wh0res though.

Avet: the trick is to build it wherever it will sit, and PRAY you never have to move it. My CL cube with 5 rads full of water is near impossible to lift without hurting my back. If I had to move it 10 feet, I'd be draining it completely!

Yes 10000000x. They are crap now honestly. Innovative design no longer. Fractal Design of all companies has done the best with the R6(not saying others like InWin haven't). The company that focuses on simplistic design... irony.
