    At first glance this is giving off big Xbox 360 design vibes

    Unfortunately, its asking price is about average in comparison to many other sff cases out there, many of which are made by start up businesses. I mean $200 USD for a metal shoebox. It's something those looking to build tiny PC's have to contend with, with a couple of exceptions such as the Fractal Node 202. Sometimes, as I have found, keeping a keen eye open for specials helps. Earlier this year I scored a Raijintek Ophion Evo for $120 USD and it houses one of my other rigs.

    Looks like it has the same overheating problems as the 360 did at launch. It's probably one of the worst performing sff cases on the market today.

    I was going to say this case is the result of an old Dell having rough hate sex with an XB360.

    Yah I remember those Dell computers when I was repair Dell Computer/laptops for my job they craptastic then and I sure they still are they had bad air flow just like the 360, with the added bonus that most stuff in Dell computers where using refurbish parts to begin with
