Oh man, my STH10 was the best case I ever owned, what a bummer.
What tariffs are these that they got screwed by.
That's a shame. I wonder whose was the "large account" that defaulted?
That's a shame... love my SMA8... the build quality is fantastic.
Wonder if Corsair will gobble up all their IP?
Probably the ones on Chinese metals.
^^^^^ import steel , then electronics - no idea if these include stuff like USB leads from case IO ports etc ...
All made in the US but materials weren't
Seems with the slap in tariffs prices will slowly creep up. Speaking to an AIB or two, technically then can ship their Cards and boards back to Taiwan HQ and then ship from there to US. Normally it's just shipped straight over but would be hit by new tariffs . Not sure now with likes of EVGA being US based and having no HQ that I know of in Taiwan...
Default account could of been a US based system builder either consumer or industry - proberly guessing prices would go up ..
Such a shame. I did actually own a Mercury S3 which I sold on eBay.
Must say, I wasn’t quite taken with the design, but none the less you can’t fault the quality.
I wonder what this means for bestcases.eu
Wow that's a big shame,loved my sth10 and go to admit they are the best made cases out there,motto everyone's taste but I loved the quality of mine.
I don't see any problem here, you can always buy thermaltake (the best case company), they make cases that look better and are cheaper too!!
Sad times! Never going to replace my TH10A until the format of PCs changes to a state where a case is not required.
Shame they've been a player for years and I'm happy with my current case from them.
Is this the company that now owns OCUK or is that another Case xxx?
It's a shame... I don't know if they have a rival when it comes to build quality, but I felt they'd been lacking in the design aspect for a while now. It's not like there isn't a market for expensive cases, as the likes of the DAN, NCase and others have proven, but Caselabs has been feeling a bit staid for a while now. I think if they'd focused more on this aspect they might have stood a better chance of survival.
I doubt that they are going down due to lack of orders. They actually have a ton of backlog orders waiting to be fulfilled, in the past few years they had to close the orders off in order to fulfil the remaining. I think the tariff problem is just a tip off point, they probably have internal problems related to productions, human resources and such.
Thermaltake the best case company? Not sure if serious......
wait what you are telling me they are not???
A case is very subjective as people like different things,I personally like Corsair,antec and caselabs but other people might not like the same case.
