All i can say is, lawlz. The cheap @$$ 5 dollar case i have looks better than that thing. I think an Armor or Tai-Chi would look better in my living room than that.

I think ThermalTake take Fugly to the next level with this case.. common guys.. looks at other Manufacturers TT!

Hard to form an opinion without seeing more of it, but from what I saw it's nothing new, and yes it is 'fugly'...:rolleyes:

When putting together my current system it was a tie between the NZXT I bought and a Thermaltake Shark, don't know how they managed to get away from a good thing.

Joking aside, there is a market for models that have fronts like that. Especially in the non-enthusiast sector.

Site is really slow.

Guess im the only one that thinks this case doesn't look half bad. Ive seen much worse than this in the past. A few mods and i think it would look great.
