Hello everybody,

I would like to buy the Fractal Design Define R2 but apparently there is only one vendor for north america, and it is not available... maybe something to do with the problem that some people had with the USB ports... I don't know...

Did somebody bought it in the US?

What would be an other computer case as good and well designed as this one?

Thanks

Only place I know of is NCIX, which is a Canadian shop. They'll ship to the US, but it's expensive.

Fractal Design is still trying to find a US distributor last I knew.

Duke....have you looked at the SPCR Lab Clearance Corner post, MikeC has listed 2 of this case for sale. One is new and one review sample.

If you are located near the NorthWest US shipping might not be too high.

Fractal Design, a Swedish case manufacturer, was a relatively unknown company until recently when their Define R2 chassis began to make headlines with its classy exterior, well researched design and exceptional noise dampening properties. The case features noise absorbing bitumen, which makes for a literally completely silent computer and the interior is laid out in logical fashion that makes it perfect to work with.


Canadian based retailer, NCIX.com will be the official North American retailer launching the Fractal Design Define R2. Given the rather large pond in between the two continents and extra production time required to fulfill the quantities requested, the approximate ETA will be within roughly two months (expected shortly before the end of April 2010). A firm date for the release will be set when the cases arrives on home soil.


NCIX will be stocking all three varieties, including the Black Pearl, Titanium Grey and Silver Arrow.


And to answer the most pressing question – how much will it cost? We have been told that a firm price is not available quite yet due to extra cost factors, but our sources guarantee that it will not been seen for more than $125 CAD! NCIX.com will be taking pre-orders for the case in the very near future so be sure to get in on the list because there will be limited quantities.

USA citizens interested in Fractal Design products, send a quick note to Newegg.com, asking them to carry the line!

Edit:

I suggested this to Newegg, and at also inquired with Fractal Design directly. Turns out they are planning on opening a North America branch in Texas, and expect to have their products for sale in the US around March.
