    I build computers to sell on eBay and one of the most costly factors is my time. Lately, more and more, it's been spent troubleshooting only to find that it wasn't operator error, but rather manufacturer defects that are the problem. Cases, mostly, are worthless. I've tried lots of different brands, and the only common thread has been poor quality and manufacturer defects.

    Does anyone know of a quality case company; maybe something not out of China? I would be willing to pay more, of course, to save myself the time of returning cases to the store time and again and troubleshooting only to find something is wrong with the product. If I found one really good case, I'd like to think I could just buy that one over and over.


    Thanks.

    I know what you mean, I build puters too and alot of switch and front hindged doors have failed for me also. I now have a Silverstone T-6 bright aluminum case is excellent quality and looks very nice. They have some other cases that look very nice too. Most don`t wanna spend the mony so I usually buy the RaidMax brand gamer cases which all 'look' cool, and then replace the included power supplies with a real one as the RaidMax ones will and do fail in short time.

    Yeah, the gamer cases have been particulalry troublesome, now that you mention it. You can just look at them funny and they fall apart. It's odd when compared to old pcs with cases so sturdy you could sit on them.

    Take a look at Ultra cases at www.TigerDirect.com. I've used them and quite happy with the Dragon Series.

    That's funny. Someone just pointed me to tigerdirect about a week ago, and their deals on mobos look great. I'll check out the cases, too. Thanks.

    I would stick with Antec cases as they are always good quality. However I would not buy them from TigerDirect. I would buy from NewEgg.com or zipzoomfly.com.

    I wont use anything but antec cases for my new builds and if you buy one with a power supply at least it is not junk like alot of them.Sometimes directron.com is cheaper than newegg on antec cases. Have used thermaltake cases on a few builds when they wanted something out of the ordinary,constructed well also.
