    I've hit a crossroads in my search for a case for my first build(!) I really enjoy the aesthetics of both of these cases, so I'm looking for opinions mainly on the pros and cons of the specs of the case. Please share positive and negative opinions/experiences! If anyone has experience with either of these cases, that would be super helpful!

    HI

    I love that you are thinking of cases as they are the last thing many think of, BUT what hardware are you putting in it as that is crucial, amount of HDD/SSDs to size of PSU to do you want to keep it really cool so fan placement is crucial?

    Im more without PC hardware going with the Aero800 OK looking case with a fair few HDD/SSD mounting points and some space for cable managment.

    I sure have seen in the last couple weeks or so a rash of similar [nonsensical? :(] posts by new users on several different forums with links to Realan cases. :confused: Often, the OP makes just 1 post - like a drive-by. :(

    I sure hope this is not some sort of spamming attempt for Realan cases as that is a sure fire way to get bad publicity for them - to the point where folks will recommend avoiding Realan products!

    I say nonsensical in this case because the two cases suggested above are way too different to compare. One is a mid ATX tower case and the other is a mini ITX case. They don't even support the same format motherboards (enforcing my spamming concerns). It is like comparing a subcompact Fiat 500 tiny car with a full sized Ford F150 pickup truck.

    I think you're right about the spamming Digerati. I seem to remember reporting a thread by this poster as it was his first post and contained what I believe was a marketing link for Realan.

    Not just the same name. If you follow the 4 links I provided above, you will see several users names.
