Quite a nice case apart from that bulging window panel which makes it look like an old Cooler Master £30 job. Still it's a big step in the right direction.

The bulging sides are just a signature of the carbide series. Remember the 500r? Personally the 500r's side didn't bother me as it fit naturally with the design. This however looks bad. Think i would rather get something like a Fractal Arc mini than this. I'm also assuming this is more of a budget model as there aren't any rubber grommets?

At first, I was wondering why we called it 88R.. and to my surprise, it is 12% smaller than our 100R. It's nice budget case for all the features it has, just not for me

Both Coolermaster, Silverstone and Fractal have something very similar to this. I honestly don't see what this does differently?

That's another good way to put it. A good case to get them started, especially the first timers.

I hope they make a silent edition of this case. I loved how clean the 100r silent looked, but it's just slightly too big to sit on top of my desk. Silent 88r would be perfect case for my current needs.

Not a bad idea at all. I remember when first launched the Carbide 300R, you guys really liked the way it was purposely designed. But at the same time, a good amount of people really wanted us to come out a silent version of it. And that's how the Carbide 330R Silent case was introduced to the market. This 88R may have the same outcome later on, if it becomes popular and there is a good demand for a silent version.. then why not.
