What a load of baloney!
I have been using computers since I was 9 and at 36, everything is still functioning very well thank you with 2 kids to show for it.
The only real use for this case might be the other way - to protect the HDD from data loss against perhaps an EMP attack, or maybe a nuclear bomb in the next town. If those aren't real threats where you live, then it's a waste of money.

Here, here. Can't have put it better myself.
Case only exists to prey on people's fears and ignorance
yeah, they can try to sell that load... see who buys it.
BTW, never heard of anyone actually measuring the amount of radiation emitted by a PC, never mind the effects on humans or other living beings.
This whole thing is pure marketing gimmick for ... naive people, to put it gently.
Any metal computer case will have excellent EM shielding and the power levels generated inside a computer are pretty small. Its just a great big marketing ploy playing on peoples fear of random crap that may kill them if taken in a much larger dose than is possible.
really??? i have been using computer for over 15 years now and i was able to have a beautiful daughter, infertility??? i don't think so...this is a load of crap...wait, i just lost some hair and got a pimple on my arse, lol. crap i tell you, it's called life...get used to it

Are you sure you have a kid, it may be an illusion created by the radiation coming from your PC Why not buy a possibly cheaply made case that may be vastly overpriced, to find out
Also aren't computer components heavily regulated by many places such as the FCC to prevent these problems.
Also the company doesn't seem to have any scientific data to back up their statements. or proof of their case working.
Also radiation shielding only works when the source of the radiation is 100% shield, a pinhole is enough to significantly reduce the effectiveness of the shielding.
If you look at a nuclear reactor, the reason why you have such large teams of highly trained people to handle the reactor is not because of a meltdown (it is nearly impossible to happen with current facilities, what they are scared of is a microscopic breach of the shielding as it is enough to kill many people over a short time
How much shielding will you have when you have a 5 inch+ hole for the dvd drive, and a few other large holes for the 120mm fans, then the additional large holes caused by the installation of things like a videocard, sound card and other pci/pcie/agp devices.
I do not think I will buy the part about a pin hole reducing effectiveness. Take a close look at your microwave and notice the door is a shield with tons of small holes(yet it still shields you from the deady microwaves) that allow you to see inside.
Want to kill a cell phone's reception(another forum of radiation), place it in a box covered with a brass screen(Faraday cage), or if its a iPhone4, just hold it wrong.
My computer does not need a lead shield to protect it or me. Not like it runs on uranium or anything.
