The case I got has the black/white LCD, and as such, does not suffer the blue/pink box issue that many are reporting.

The backlight is still way to bright with clear acrylic, and really should get toned down, possibly with some tinting film or a voltage mod. It also suffers the same bone-headed design as to keep the full screen on even when the PC is powered off (you have to unplug the power supply or flip a power supply on/off switch to get the screen to turn off when shutdown).

Aside from that, it seems to be working as advertised. My case was Quality Control checked in 9-2009. Looks like Antec USA seems to have a least one QC guy with eyes and made sure they used something that was human readable. I haven't fooled with the software yet to see if it can tame down the backlight.
Just had a response from Antec re the pink/overbright LCD's in all Veris products. Seems the problem is a fault in manufacture, and they have no idea how to resolve it. The current official solution appears to be remove the LCD entirely, or simply turn it off!

You couldn't make it up.

The best I can say about their support in the UK is, it's none existant. Antec are simply uncontactable in any way, shape or form to illicit a response that bears any relation to the questions asked.
