    Ultra "Aluminus" full tower alum case for $30, after $60 MIR at Frys.com

    Edit: On backorder with no date on when expected to restock...call it a dead deal. Too bad 'cause I wanted one.

    This is what I would consider a moderately good buy, so I'll pass it along in case anyone else might be in need. Shipping is free, too.

    Valid thru Oct 31st...then the gobblings take the deal away.

    The basics:

    Full tower, aluminum with removable mobo tray, 5x 5.25" external bays, 2x 3.5" external bays and 5x internal 3.5" bays. No fans, but set up for 2x 120mm, so cooling should be adequate and low noise.

    Has that familiar Chieftec/Chemming case look with the slip in and out system for mounting CD-R drives and the likes. Internal hard drives can be mounted in either direction, mobo tray has center cut out for easier cable routing and such.

    Ultra Silver Aluminus ATX Mid-Tower Case with Clear Side, Front USB, Firewire and Audio Ports

    By the way, has anybody had experiences with rebates from "Ultra" (good or bad)?

    I'd be all over this if I needed a case. I like this style of case but they are soooo heavy in the steel versions, but the aluminum should me much lighter.

    You can probably expect it to ship in 2-3 weeks, at least that was the case with my backordered Antec case from them.

    If it is on backorder, then I bet that the rebate offer won't be worth a darn (since the actual sales invoice date will be outside of the rebate's time window).

    I placed an order yesterday and received an order processing email without any mention of backorder...better give these guys a call and see what's up.

    OnDBorder,

    Since you have one of these...how is the build quality on the case...is it worth buying?

    Edit:
    Followed the link for "Call for Availability" and that is in fact, their code for being on backorder. I don't mind waiting for it to restock, if I can still get the rebate based on the order date, vs a ship date.

    I'll post after I give them a call and get the particulars.

    These are on backorder with no estimate of when they will be received therefore, a dead deal as far as I'm concerned.

    I just cancelled my order.

    After giving those reviews a quick read, maybe at $30 it was an even better deal than I first thought.

    Looks good in black, too.

    Oh well, maybe next time.

    The sale is over and like "magic" they're back in stock. Was I the only one who saw this coming?

    At least this product from Ultra won't kill your whole rig
