So this is the cheapest I've seen it ever. Annoyingly I already purchased it a week ago for £47. Select 2 to 5 day delivery to get it delivered for this price (or collect it from Bolton for £40.49!)

Thats a nice window its got, for the price it seems decent
Ok if you don't need an optical drive
Its ok... its more a show off case than a functional one really.
problems are it has a very positive airflow (too much in, too little out).
positive airflow allows build up of heat, negative airflow can cause dust to be pulled in through gaps.
generally a slightly positive flow is what I go for but this case has 4 in 1 out all of the same size fans.
this won't be too bad if you are using a liquid cooling solution for both the gpu card and the cpu though.
the gpu mount looks like it could potentially decrease airflow to your gpu if you use a stock air cooler (only small clearance from window).

That said I do like the look of it, and if you are doing a water cooled case its probably quite good but for an air cooled system I'd avoid.

I said good and bad things about it, please could the trolls refrain from getting their knickers in a twist.

Haven't voted as I think it depends on which way you want to use it but if you are going to splash on a liquid cooling system then skimping isn't what you really should be doing on the case.
Bit of a cheek them calling it "gull wing", more like "L window" as the side does not gull wing as is probably harder to get off / access to inside than a normal case...
"Tt LCS Certified is a Thermaltake exclusive certification", so what, they made something up, then say it applies to their products, wow. I am a certified bouncy studmeister, which is an exlusive certification that only applied to people with my specific gamertag.

OK my review so far;

Functionality is good, there are plenty of drive mounts, cable management options, front USB3, and options for all sorts of water cooled and fan cooled configurations, it pretty much has everything you would need (except an optical drive slot). It definitely looks the part too, when properly lit.

Negatives: As Syst3emzero said if you mount 3 fans on the front like I have you have a lot of air going in and not much going out (as the case only comes with 1 rear fan). But personally i'm setting these front ones to a lower speed to combat this (plus they're mostly for show in my case anyway!)

It also seems to scratch very easily so you have to be careful with it!

It went very hot at a higher price back in June, so I thought you guys might be interested!

Hey, did you water cool or are you air cooling the gpu? if so is it as close to the window as it looks? to me it looked like it might give 1cm clearace.
Also if you are using the sideways mount for gpu have you considered modding the pci slots into a second exhaust fan (if you aren't using them)?
I'm sure it was designed to house a water cooling system and is great value case at that price. If you are intending on doing a water cooling build and money is tight then this is a good option imo.

Few people do frankly.
So tempted to get this. I love the way you can mount the gpu vertically
