    "UMAX 6" is far too old for a name. It should have been called the "UMAX 6e"

    It could have been a beautiful case and the weight suggest that it's solid as well but... I don't get one thing. Whenever a new premium, designer case pops up, it's almost a given that it's brushed metal front panel will be ruined by USB/Audio ports. Is there some top-down requirement for PC case manufacturers to implement these ports in such an obtrusive way? I can't imagine someone with enough good taste to invest in a premium designer case to have seven cables (or even one) hanging from it's front panel, especially these days when most monitors and many keyboards have USB hubs or even Audio pass-throughs.

    I strongly prefer front I/O panels opposed to top ones. If your PC is on your desk, it's by far the easiest to reach (other than side ones).

    Think about stuff like temporary USB sticks, VR-headsets, wired earpieces (cuz ur headset f.e. broke) and mouse receivers for those who don't have fancy pass through key-boards yet.
    IMO there's plenty of reason for (front mounted) I/O panels to exist, and I certainly want a nice one like this case has on either the front or side with my next purchase. :)

    Apart from an undoubtedly high price the only things i see this good for are high temps and poor air flow, and the hd cage seems pointless.
