  1. It may seem like a no-brainer to the end-user, but designing a PC chassis is no easy feat. It's the reason why that out of the thousands of cases that have hit the market and the hundred or more that...

    I believe there is still a large market for CD/DVD drives. Two reasons come to mind, burning music CDs and DVDs for backup/movies.

    5.25-inch drive bays have far more uses than just optical drives... plenty of hard drive doc bays that fit in them from single bay all the way to 5 bay spring lock for easy swap... people who buy this type of case are the ones who would use such things...

    "Interestingly enough, Razer has eliminated the front 5.25-inch drive bays – a move that I completely agree with as optical drives are going the way of the floppy drive in this digital age".
    Maybe where you come from but unfortunately not everybody in the world has the good fortune of having access to cheap, fast internet. Why do you think companies like Google & FB are so interested in granting just about the entire planet access to the internet... because they're good, generous guys who have the interests of their fellow man at heart? Yeah, right. For the vast majority especially in developing counties an optical drive is still a must and they'll be around for a good while longer.
    On another note, I wouldn't dream of paying more for a Razer branded case with lime green lights and logo's when I could buy the exact same thing with NZXT branding for far less but then again that's just me.

    Too many cases now are rectangles. I mean im not saying we should resort to the 2001, MY CASE LOOKS LIKE AN ALIEN mindset, but honestly too many people are obsessed with having serious/professional looking cases instead of fun ones.

    For that sum I can get a better one, dear Razer.

    Razer is known to be overpriced. This is no surprise to me at least.

    I just finished a review on the H440 which will be published soon. It's a great case and this version looks very cool in my opinion. I also really liked the fact that they dropped the 5.25" bays. Every case has them and I never use them so its nice to have an option that doesn't include them. If you want 5.25" bays buy any other mATX case or bigger ;)
     
  12. Meh..

    file under "file 101" - (American for the trash can) like the last case they were going to launch...

    True. Not to mention http://www.frontx.com/ You can build any number of connections and ports and controls into a 5.25 inch drive bay. It's a great option for customizing.

    Those CD-rom bays make for great fan controller or watercooling reservoir spaces.
    Should at least have the option still with some breakout type panel or something.
