Hardware Canucks ripped it pretty good too. Making sure the bottom can breath apparently helps, but it's not a good design.

Shame because it's beautiful and fairly priced.

I hope they fix this. Ncase and Dan case are so expensive.

Yeah I had that wrong. It's the Dan Case and the one with the "hats" that are really expensive. My buddy has an Ncase. I got to have a play with it when we had the LAN night last fall.
