You know, the tempered glass these days I get. It's a lot more scratch and heat resistant than the Lexan or plexi-glass, whatever, that has been traditionally used, and I'm cool with that. The other stuff gets scratches if you even look at it wrong. I'm meticulous about being careful with my side panels and both sides still have some minor scratches on them. I'll trade that for something that is, if not impervious to scratches, at least a lot more resistant.
So I'm ok with any case maker using tempered glass, and even paying a premium for it.
But the front of these Corsair (And a bunch of other manufacturers) just seems like they are trying to be exactly what we've made fun of Raidmax, Rosewill, Aerocool and DIY-pc for doing with the fronts (And tops) of their cases for a long time now. I realize that there are widely different opinions on just about anything you care to ask about, but to me, these are just ugly as can be and I'd much rather have a plain front panel if necessary, for me or a client, than have to look at that every day. I'm sorry Corsair (Well, not really) but to me that's a big fat NO.
