How much does it cost?  Maybe I missed it, but I didn't see it in the review.

It looks alot better without all the guts inside.  The drives as well as the mobo take up alot and prolly darken that side alot.

I'm surprised the reviewer was so duped!

This case was earlier reviewed here:
http://www.gideontech.com/reviews/dci_cm42cl/

The case is an OEM repackaging of the DesignComp DCI CM 42-CL DIY Acrylic Case.

I bought one from DesignComp and assembled it myself.  Its a great case and I fully recommend it.  The previous review goes into much more depth.  Enjoy and maybe these guys should read their archives or check their memories.

the previous review of the version from Design Comp was their first 'generation' of the case. afaik, there are some slight improvements in build overall with this one from Sunbeam/DC.

the reason there isnt a price or a link, is because this product came from the "manufacturer" and we need permission from the resellers to post their information and I couldn't get it from the primary reseller. I do know that it sells in the 100-150 range depending on where you get it.

VBespirit,  Many many products are rebadged and modified. Almost every CCFL product comes from 1-2 big companies in asia, most of the aluminum cases from Lian Li and Chenning are rebadged and modfied from other companies. Just about everything sold on modding sites today are not sold under the original inventor/ manufacturer and are used / remade with permission.   Everyone is entitled to there opionion so I will respect your's but we were far from duped and I think its nice to see how products age well and improve. The case Gideon reviewed was over a year ago, and the fit and finish of the latest versions are significantly improved.
