   The finish on the case is done very nicely with the anodize aluminum.  The two side panels are secured with thumb screws. 

Each panel has a small loop so you can pull it out.

   The inside of the case has a good amount of wires already there connecting power, temperature and front panel functionality.  This may cause an issue with people who already have a large amount of wires running.

   The large 20 pin ATX connector is spliced to power the front LCD panel.  Just take your existing connector from your ATX power supply and attach it on top of it.

   The case does not utilize a removable motherboard tray.  There are a good amount of 5.25" and 3.5" interior bays to use.  All edges have been rounded so there's no need to worry about cutting yourself.

   There is an 80mm intake fan in the front.  Not sure if it does much work since its right behind the LCD panel in the front.

   One peeve I have with this unit is the break off component card slots.  Since the case only include a couple of extra bays, this would make it a one time deal.  Break it off incorrectly and you will have an open slot.  Also, break off slots are a pain as they are prone to cutting fingers.

   Right above where the CPU area is a fan duct with an 80mm fan.  What is strange is that there is another 60mm fan directly next to it.  I personally do not think the 60mm should be necessary.
