    Dear sweet Mother of God... If we don't get one of these in for review I might cry... This is SUCH a wonderful addition to the Graphite series, and a worthy successor to what is still a great case, the Graphite 600T:

    love that huge windowed sidepanel. The hinged sidepanel idea i pretty nice, but i don't like the handle in the window. It would have made a much more sleek look if they had come op with a different solution for securing the window, perhaps some kind of "push to open"-mechanism that could be hidden i the top and bottom part of the front.

    Well the handle to me is very reminiscent of how 600T's looked when people would get the custom all-acrylic side panels made up. The OEM clips would still be in place to keep the panel from falling out. I do see what you're saying with a different kind of latching mechanism, but I think they went this route for structural integrity since if it were to mount anywhere else with most of the side panel being acrylic, it probably wouldn't have been seated properly. Having the latch right there ensures that it is not only secured properly, but also that any pressure applied is done across the center of the panel to help keep it from warping. Just playing devil's advocate here though, and I do agree that something else might have looked cleaner but I kind of like having the acrylic extend all the way towards the front.

    If anything a much smaller latch would be more appropriate its just to big

    Push to open would actually have been better like on my bathrooms medicine cabinets mirrored doors
