Wow, thanks for taking the time to look those up and post them as suggestions. Now, my critique......
X-Gear- Not a bad looking case, the front usb/audio ports are hidden, it's got the side window, doesn't look like a transformer and is well within my price range. The only thing that could possibly be an issue is the silver insert. My drives are gonna be black so im not too sure it would look right. However, if I play w/the configuration of the blanks, it could look pretty **** sweet! This is now the front runner in my search for a case.
X-Dreamer II- The first thing that stands out is the fact that the backlighting on the LED display is an aqua color while the rest of the lighting is blue, not only that, but the bezel around the display looks pretty cheesy, IMO.
X-Dreamer- Same as above, although w/o the bright LED's in the front, which i'm not sure is a good thing.
X-Infinity- Were it not for the faux BMW front end at the top of this case, it would be at or near the top of my list.
Chenming NC-1000- Not bad, only thing I really don't like are the exposed audio/usb ports up front, other than that, I could see myself using that case.
Codegen E-6097- If the side window was actually a window instead of mesh, and if the front usb/audio ports were covered, this would be my case without a doubt. I like the smooth look of this case, I like the layout of the led's and the power/reset buttons, I like the potential cooling characteristics inherent via the multi-fan layout, although I would not use an led fan up front, those vents look better unlit, IMO. I'm kinda bummed, I really like this case
So far, X-Gear is proving to be worthy. Any other suggestions guys?
