Discussion Am I the only one that find cases with glass windows and flashy looks unattractive?

When I see modern pc cases on the market I always see over the top cases with big expensive rgb lightning and ugly glass windows on the sides which I find very unappealing because it feels like it's just there so you can see all the powerful parts inside of it which I don't really see the point of using besides bragging about how powerful that pc is and besides I find the internal parts fairly unattractive to look at so I want to hide them as much as possible .

This is why I would prefer using black cases that have a simple and bold design with no glass windows so that you just see the case and nothing else.

The benefit is that it creates the illusion you are not using a very powerful computer which is not the case when using a flashy and expensive case that just blatantly says "Look at how powerful and expensive I am "

This more simplistic design is more similar to how computers used to look like back in the days of the 90's and early to mid 2000's when personal computers always used cases with no windows and just a plastic or metal cover.

I have a dell dimension e521 desktop computer from 2007 that has this type of design and I just love how it looks because you don't see these types of cases anymore.

What is your opinion on cases without glass windows and am I the only one that feels this way about modern pc cases in 2020? .

Everybody has different likes and dislikes. It's no different then buying a car or anything else. I bought a red car you bought a white car, mine was 20K fairly plain Jane your's was 50K with the big motor and stripes.

I agree with you. My PC case sits under my desk. I can't even see it as I'm typing this, so glass siding, RGB lighting would be pointless for me. I think what irks me the most is people who have extremely limited budgets,, but still insist on bells and whistles. Somewhat counter to your thoughts; they include them to make the system look better than it really is. To me, it's like having a Corvette body and a Chevette engine.

I'm in the same boat/plane/whatever with you!
Performance first, aesthetics 'MEH'!
The side window, especially the full glass/acrylic one, was one of the worst things to happen to PC chassis.

~Ooh, I agree with this so much. They want to eat at a steakhouse at fast food prices.


Then you have people that do manage to get their glass and rainbow vomit chassis for cheap, only to come here or there, asking about operating temps or other performance issues caused by high thermals...
