The problem being even if they add some of the suggestions Gary makes in the review, there are cases out already cheaper than the base case that have them. to me the base case should at least have room for an AIO in the roof considering that's where most people put it

Your conclusion is very difficult to read. It looks like a brick wall of text.
Try and break it down more with paragraphs.

Thanks for the review Gary. When I first saw show pictures of this case, I thought it had possibilities. Sorry to see that the shortcomings have overwhelmed any possible positives the case might have had.

To me it seems like they tried to make a quality product but it fell victim to the "where can we cut a few cents off of the manufacturing cost" demon. I really wish they had just decided to put out a pro/premium product and followed through with that.

Mmmm I actually quite like this chassis it has potential for my dremel, needs a nip and cut in few areas and paneling inside and out, throw some paint and vinyl into the mix, hit the internals with some nice white LED lighting and we have a deal.

They should have made this a basic chassis with the ability to attach all different panels onto it. Not entirely pleased. Stupid price too.

I like the looks of the exterior, but not enough to pay so much for it.

Good review Gary.
