They are basically the exact same thing as far as I can tell. I would get the Lite-On and save $10.

They are all the same. The different prices are basically the company's logo. :P

There are some drives that give a faster read or write speed, but in all reality, it wouldn't matter.

Hey MindoverMaster I was looking at your sig, how did you get your haf 922 to get a custom side panel And are those 2x 120mm blue led fans on top? If so, where did you get them. My friend bought one recently and he wants to make it blue.

Thanks

Everything came with the case. For some reason, they do not sell with the window anymore. Guess I was just lucky :P
There are 2 different versions, the red and blue. There are actually 3 fans that came with it. A 200mm fan on top, a 120mm on back, and a 200mm front fan. They all glow a beautiful blue.
You can buy the blue ones online as well.
Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER Megaflow 200 R4-LUS-07AB-GP 200mm Blue LED Case Fan
