Comments: Just recieved this LCD yesterday. This was an upgrade from my samsung 172x 17in LCD and Im vey happy with it. Its a huge screen, and great resolution. I played BF2, fear, wow and was very happy with the monitor I didnt notice and real difference from this and my 172x. ghosting is almost non exsistent and its a 21 in screen. I tried to watch for it and never noticed it while playing. A+ for gaming. And the s-video is great for playing your ps2 on the monitor as well. It has PIP but not sure how usefull that will be to me but nice to have. the only complaint i have so far is the backlight behind the screen is noticable in all four corners when the screen is blacked out. buts thats just being picky about it. if your looking for a huge gaming monitor this one should be at the top of your list.oh and no dead pixals!!

Pros: Size. You have a lot of room for component, Hard drives, ETC. I added the cross flow fans and 2 92mm fan, System was still quite enough to not be a distraction. Ventilation was very good. Looks. This is a beautiful case, and really stands out in a Home theater set up. Everything is well built and case feels sturdy and strong.

Cons: Size. I had to remove the feet just to fit it in my TV stand. They really could have made it about an inch shorter with no issues. Optical drive sits in a bad spot if you use a 280gtx card. back of drive will sit on top of power connectors putting your drive on a slight angle. Not a real big deal but still annoying. Display. Its nice to see whats going on, see the news headlines, etc. but the display has a very annoying blink as it scrolls by. distracting and it only gets worse as you speed the scroll speed up. I expected a lot more from it. Also blue led it way to bright. It will light up an entire room. Very distracting while watching a movie in the dark.

Overall Review: I would probably not purchase this case for my self, but would recommend it to others. I built A HTPC for my brother with this case.
