    Default places to buy Beantech cases (clear acrylic BT90)

    Does anybody know of an online store that sells these? (EagePC.com does NOT count, as I'm pretty convinced that company is pure conartistry based on the reviews I've found)

    Difficult to find. Does it have to be a Beantech case? There are several good quality acrylic cases out there. Anyway, you might try an email to sales@beantech.com as this email address was given on their home site.

    Good luck.

    Directron has two Aluminum & one Acrylic HERE and their bussiness practices are far above reproach. But the Acrylic is the BT-84.

    The BT 90-B HERE I think Beantech's been put out of bussiness by Logisys & Sunbeam selling the same or better cases for half the price.

    Not necessary to be Beantech, but they REALLY looked nice, and they're also the only company I've found so far who makes an acrylic FULL tower. Everything else I've found is mid-size.

    I contacted Beantech and they directed me to ONE dealer in the states. I need to call them a second time, but my first attempt didn't show much promise.

    I contacted them and they gave me a dealer to talk to, so there's still someone working there in one form or another. The dealer the first time I called didn't seem to know the model though, so it wasn't looking good. I still haven't found anyone else who makes a full-size acrylic tower so Beantech looks like the only option. That HUGE set of drive bays is nice too :)

    Thanx for the link! :)

    No problemo! Just figured Beantech was doing poorly as all the sites that had carried their cases switched to Logisys & Sunbeam. And knowing how well built Sunbeam products are I made the logical assumption. But keep checking this thread as I will update should I find a source for the BT-90. Do you mind if it's blue/green acrylic??? As the BT-90-b is the blue one I seem to be having luck with.

    Yeah I noticed that it was blue. Some of my other parts came in for this mod though and I realized the blue will actually go quite well with it. I'm still going to want a white one at some point though cuz it'll be easier to add colors.

    And hopefully Sunbeam or Logisys will make a full/server tower at some point. I guess there's just not as much of a market for modded full-towers.

    Yeah, the model numbers suffix, i.e., BT-90-B represents the color of the acrylic used. And I'ld look to Sunbeam to pull off the Full Tower first as they're known for quality and lots of extras.

    In the meanwhile..... HERES a close Lucite runner up called the Grande. Following the current production trend, at 9" W x 22" H x 18" D it is being classed as a "Full Tower". Upon comparing it to my 8 x 20 x 19 SB Transformer, it's quite aparent they merely eliminated the second 3.5 & droped the 120mm fan hole to allow for 6 5.25 bays.And since they refer to the four 2" x 2" blocks as the base rather than as Feet, one can readily see where they get 22" instead of 20" in hight.

    It does come with tons of mod options from a wide variety of color tint that includes full case, sides, front/back to extra blow holes and even second PSU that only drive the $189.00 cost through the perverbial roof. Which still beats the only other option found, a custom "True" Full Tower(20"H) constructed with over $300 of " Lucite with shipped price dependant on other mandatory "options/specs" chosen.......hell it won't even list a base price!
