Today I am reviewing an aluminum case made by Directron. For an aluminum case it is very nicely built with rolled edges and very few sharp protrusions. It has plenty of room for most users. It also has the advantages of some front ports for USB (2) and Firewire (IEEE1394). And it comes with a side window already installed. All this and more for under $100.00 shipped. (I think mine was right around $90.00 to my door.)

Pretty nice for the price. I'm surprised it came with a 360w psu. Most come with 300w. Good job, Rb.

Sweet review, its good to see Lian Li alternatives. Steel results in such a heavy case when its filled up with goodies.

I seemed to miss your final picture?

Its ashame they put that reinforcement bar right there, its in the path of the window, and knowing how mine looks that would be a big eyesore. I guess the only saving factor would be if that bar is hollow? so you could place a vertical mounted cold cathode light right in there and avoid the intense light hitting your eyeballs.

The last picture is there now. And it shows what it looks like with the reinforcing bar removed. I didn't like it either.
