holy crap, I wasn't expecting the case to get discounted this soon. Now I'm a little hesitant on getting it now for fear of a lower price on Black Friday.
I kinda like the window on this case. I wonder how much less effective sound dampening is the windowed version compared to the non-windowed version. From what I read on another forum, one user[overclock3d.net] says it's negligible.
 Oh what the hell, bought it anyways.
 I like how the other windowed cases are discounted to $90 yet the black pearl windowed case is discounted to $100 before coupon...

"I like playing Smash Bros. with you, because apparently, you develop Tourette's, and it's fun."
I own the previous model, the Fractal R3, (no window) and LOVE it. They make the R4 without window too, just FYI... these are awesome cases. If you dislike having a window, wait for it to go on sale, you'll get a panel with full noise foam then anyway .
Case arrived just hours ago, absolutely beautiful in person--a bit wider than I expected.
Of course the case is not without some nitpicks.
Front panel door does not swing all the way back like the mini P180.
Vent door is kinda hard to push to latch or release.
Like almost every other PC case out there that comes with a bottom fan filter, you have to remove it from the rear...
Hard drive trays do scratch the paint slightly on the cages if you're not careful.
When installing SSDs behind the motherboard plate, you have to install them before you install the board and you'll have to remove the board to get access to the SSDs. (Silverstone has a bracket solution but it's not available at the moment.)
There are paint blemishes around the edges of the window where the side panel holds it in place. Generally unnoticeable with such a dark interior.
Just minor stuff, I think all of the pros of this case far outweigh any of the cons I've listed. I'm gonna enjoy this next build .
