It looks nice, and I'm quite impressed by the design. However, I question the durability and the warranty. Nerds tend to be a bit clumsy and would likely break / scratch this case really fast. It would more likely be used as a case for a relic PC that is built once and never touched again.

No EATX or Server boards? For 800 it better support EVERYTHING. Though the local Apple guy really wants this, of course because it's "pretty". (figures)

Looks very nice, but I imagine that with all that light bouncing back in, plus the relatively limited spots for fan placement, it almost has to be water cooled or only low thermal components. I would say it'd be fun to experiment with, but at $800 I'm not so sure you'd want to experiment with that too much.

If it is tempered glass, then you will have to be super careful hitting the edge of the case. Scratching the case will not be an issue, as glass is very very hard to scratch.

This does have an amazing look. The price might push some away, but a case like this wont be bought by people looking for a great deal. Same reason why people by sports cars, and drive them around the city at 45mph, its all for the looks.

I'd like a version that could support a 4 and 3 rad dual loop system. Could do some amazing looking builds. I seem to move house once a year but if I settle then I'd love something like this. I would want it to be a big ass case though so I could put a few different builds in it as the years go on.

Nice case... expensive, but it's a nice concept and looks sweet

now, WHY only 1 intake and 3 exhaust fans??? I can't imagine a glass case being very well sealed. without positive pressure airflow, it's going to suck up dust from every crevice, then you get to show it all off when you power on the rig and it becomes transparent... Horrible design decision to not include filtered bottom intake fans

I could see this being used as a really great HTPC in the living room... build it once with low thermal equipment... and you have a great way of "hiding" your HTPC in plain sight!

Such a nice case, but such an ugly graphic on it. Isn't the whole point of such a thing that it should 'disappear' leaving only visible the internal components?

One way mirrors. Ever see a movie with an interrogation? The mirror in the interrogation room stops being a mirror when the light behind it is turned on.
