Level 10 Unboxing and some thoughts

After a long wait on iBuypower to build the Thermaltake Level 10 PC, it finally arrived last week. A few initial pics to follow. My initial impressions:
- This thing is heavy. I go to the Gym and lift weights twice a week. Forget it. I’m never going to be able to move again. I found my self dragging it into place.
- It took way to long for them to build. They claim they had all the parts from the get go.
- Because it had to be freighted iBuyPower was a little confused as to who they shipped it with. Annoying after the long wait. I had to place multiple calls.
- A Duie Pyle (trucking company that sounds like a pile of crap?)) was final deliverer. But there was another company in between. I think Fedex or UPS could of handled this and would it would have been fine. I don’t get why I had to pay extra to have some thug mishandle the box anyway.
- Even though it weighs a ton, the doors on it seem a little cheap or thin.
- It has two locks. One for motherboard door and other to get back panel off. But PSU and DVD doors are not locked. Seems silly kind of.
- Little gap between DVD door and cover panels. Looks a little off when you look at it from front.
- iBuyPower felt the need to slap their ugly sticker on my pristine virgin. I think this date with them and I could be a one and done. Thank you. Also, they never sent the free LCD monitor they promised. Yet another phone call?
- Inside layout is very nice.
- I verified the unit works, but have a long job ahead of me moving everything over. So more to do on checking out new system. Details here: http://deanonsoftware.com/?p=99
