I agree, dust will be a major problem with a clear case. You will spend more time cleaning it because you can see the dust. Heat will be the other issue.

Why would heat increase with acrylic? Also, why would dust increase with acrylic? This makes no sense to me, although I just think acrylic cases are ugly.

its not a question of dust increasing in a clear case. Its the fact that you can see it all... Like you got windows but its looks nasty when their dirty and you gotta wash them, not so easy with the inside of a case.

Only reason i can think of about heat.. is acrylic dont desipate heat aswell as Ali and Steel. But thats just a guess

Ahh I see your point with seeing the dust, that would annoy the **** outta me. I can't see why heat would increase still, anyone have any info on that?
