I asked them if the tempered glass panel will be sold separately since to be frank the windowed panel in my original Define C is a bit disappointing.

Answer I got was that they may or may not be developing an upgrade kit. On Facebook they mentioned that they're working on backwards compatibility.

This case should have always come out with tempered glass. I really like Fractal, but releasing this now is a little weird to me.

Not too happy about design. It would had been so much better if they added hinges on the backside, would have been so much easier to handle. Also the black patterns around the bolts really makes it looks weird.

Don't get the fad with tempered glass.
Rather just stick with the cheaper yet exact same functioning plastic.

Yeah but it happens. Clear acrylic is notoriously easy to scratch, even with things that aren't very hard or sharp. Of course, fixing scratches in acrylic is pretty easy too. All you need is your finger and some toothpaste.

TG looks tons better too.
