Advantages of Sonata:
- Better aesthetics
- Quieter PSU & case
I dont think the case is quieter and i believe the PSU is the same type just the sonata has a little more juice. either one is not that quiet IMO.
also i dont think the sonata looks better then the BQE, the BQE has more a classic look, while the sonata has those stupid antec holes on the panel and these 2 stupid looking little blue lights on the front. If i ever got into lights, i would not want two little specs.
basicy, get what you are happy with, right now i have a old white case that i am gonna cut up and paint, i will most likly like this case more then my BQE but i modded it.
You can order the BQE order at www.directron.com
without a PSU and they will take 32 dollars out
