it's plastic, and not too durable. not entirely plastic mind you...but the parts that NEED to be strong, are unfortunately mostly plastic.

door hinges are plastic. and when u open the door it flies open and slaps the top of the case. scratches tha paint and will eventually snap off one day. not the best case unless you are extremely gentle with your case.

I was looking at that earlier, but I move my pc to different houses a lot (to hook it up on LAN etc.) so I thought I'd be better off getting a metal case with flat sides (so it won't move around much if I put it in the backseat of a car)... and that case is expensive.

im not sure, it's not incredibly flimsy.

but not many standard grades of plastic can hold up like steel/aluminum. if you aren't a gentle person snapping off the door could be pretty easy.
