I like it. Not too flashy. It is a bit dull, but I do agree, it looks professional. If I saw it in an office or school, I would think it was a powerful computer, but if I saw it in a home, and it was owned by a young person, I don't think I would think the computer was so powerful... If that makes any sense...

Ok. Well after spending days looking for a case i always found out that when people had a case long term, problems came up, (i looked at lots of video reviews and forum posts) there were even problems with the case when they first got it. Like with the Antec 300 and 900, Fans that came with the case were DOA. And alot of people were saying that antec 300 is a filmsy case and that they have to constantly tighten up screws.

And some user videos revealed that the lian li lancool had warped motherboard trays when the case was shipped to them and many people complain that the lancool is not true lian li quality and that its easy for it to dent.

My point is i wanted a No BS, Strong Steel Case. And from what i have seen the Gigabyte iSolo 230 delivers exactly that. So if the only weaknesses to the case are that it is not 'aesthetically pleasing' or that its 'boring', when it comes to computers that doesnt matter to me.

I like it Prod. I think it's sleek and sexy. My one negative, though, is about the mesh screen. If I buy a thousand dollars worth of frickin computer parts, I buy 'em to show off, too. So if I bought that, I'd go to home depot or menards and mod-up a plexi panel in place of it. Good idea, but not so much--plus, it's probably going to get FULL of dust.

That's cool you go for it. We obviously misunderstood your question cause in your original post you were raving how badass it looks so I personally assumed looks were a big factor in your liking it.

i meant it looking badass in the fact that its a huge steel case and a professional look is appealing to me. but i agree in the fact that it does look boring. But also my question was: Is Gigabyte a reputable company and do they make a good quality product overall?.. It wasnt: Does my case look good to you? which i think is how you were taking my OP

@ Dude: The case did look really cool but after looking at it closely i didnt like the text on the front, that black bar is kinda dumb and im not a fan of doors blocking access to my dvd burner, and always keeping it open would have been an inconvenice since i am constantly burning dvds (ill probably forget its open and knock into it somehow) and taking that door off would take away from the point of the case: To look cool.
