Question Tsunami or Saprano?

That is the question.

I am debating which case to get between the new Saprano and the Tsunami.

The differences that I have learned of seem to be:

Tsunami:



*Metal Case Door
*Blue LED Fan and Door Lights
*Aluminum
*No out side thinking lights
*Thumb screws

Saprano:



*Plastic Case Door
*No LED fan
*Power and Thinking lights visible externally
*SECC build
*Plastic Multi Colored Rails

Right now I am leaning twords the Tsunami as it doesn't have multi colored rails and looks slightly prettier.

Whatcha Think?

Wtf my tsunami dream came with Plastic Multi Colored Rails with tool less design.

Never seen one without them.

I dislike plastic as well. Every plastic bezel i have bought has broken in some for or fashion (the one i have now has a USB door busted off, this is almost ALWAYS the first piece to go since it's so flimsy). Simply opening or closing the doors too hard/fast can snap the plastic. I prefer all metal, like steel or aluminum.

Well i thought the Saprano had better cooling. But since they use the same cooling system "dual 120mm fans single 80mm fan". Then i would say the Tsunami no hands down.
