Why is there barely any Reviews for this case ? XPG Battlecruiser

As title said. Actually I myself only found out about this casing today...there's only like 2 - 3 reputable review for this casing. And it's quite positive. 
But all those bigger YouTubers / Tech sites never review it like Gamer Nexus, Hardware Canucks ( Well they do quite decent case reviews ) etc. 

Honestly I quite like what I'm seeing here. What you guys think ?? 
I have my eyes set on these few cases. 

P600S 
Lian Cool Mesh 2 
P500A 

I think P600S is bit pricey ( least based on my country ). It's about 160$ USD here....though I think it have the best airflow and looks as well. 
Build quality among all these casing I think it's more or less the same, but P600S just feels more " solid " maybe it's the bulky looks of it. 

P500A is again also rather pricey, if you go for the RGB version. The fans are loud what I heard from reviews. There's no fan controller either...
This case goes for around 130$ here in my country. 

Then there's Lian Cool Mesh 2, only at around 110$ best deal of all....decent build. RGB version isn't much more expensive either. 
Cools well. But I don't really like the look of the case...reviews claimed that it's very well build but again, looking at it, it feels flimsy for some reason. 

Now this Battlecruiser...changes everything...the CHEAPEST one I found it's about 130$ - 140$ depending on which shop I buy from. 
Aesthetic wise, I definitely prefer this one...the dust filter at the bottom is quite disappointing honestly...since my case be near the wall...so it be a pain to remove every time. 
But overall the case seems decent, it have what I need. Load of SSD mounts, decent amount of HDD slots. Comes with 4 ARGB fan as well. 
The cooling is quite decent too...

So what you guys think ?? What's your impression of this case at 130 - 140$ USD. Would you go for this or the other 3 I mentioned ?

( You can overclock Tier C just fine, but it can get very loud, that is why it is not recommended for overclocking, same with tier D)

Psu tier List. Tier A for Rtx 3000, Vega and RX 6000. Tier B For anything else. Tier C cheap/IGPU. Tier D and E avoid.

(RTX 3000/ RX 6000 Might run just fine with higher wattage tier B unit, Rtx 3070 runs fine with tier B units)

A pretty expensive case that has poor airflow. So basically on the do not buy list. Might as well get a h500 mesh or so. 100$ case and really good airflow + comes with rgb for the ones that want it.

Problem is there's no actual comparison with other casing. 
Well except TechPowerUp's review. 
CPU wise, seems like on par with R7. I guess it definitely be worst than P600S I guess, logically. 
GPU wise, it's far worst than the R7...
Shame...so I guessing maybe I would go with P600S.

Cooling looks okay. The fans are spaced away from the front panel to properly leverage the side vents which happens far less often than it should, however it appears as if lower quality materials and manufacturing methods were used (In my opinion) so the Price being as high as it is (it's $160 at amazon in the US at time of writing) makes it hard for me to recommend over the P500A, or even P600s, which both offer better airflow as well as (especially for the P600s) better build quality. Or especially the Lancool 2 Mesh for $50 more

 

The battlecruiser is not a bad case, but unless you aesthetically love it or it's just way cheaper than the other options, there's little reason to pick it over the P500A or Lancool Mesh 2 which will give better temps for gaming sessions. 

 

In the end it's your build. If you like the aesthetics of it and you're content with the temperature results of the system you build in it, then that's all that matters and no one of the forums telling you "it's too hot" will change that.

The Lancool Mesh 2 is just suspiciously cheap !! Sadly there's a pandemic going on...It's difficult to even go to a shop and actually look at it and feel it IRL...
Not to mention, Casings are large...most the shop don't display them either, unless it's something really special. Most the PC shop in my country are rather small nothing big like in the US, like Micro Center etc....

I'm bit worry about the Lancool Mesh 2 build quality, does anyone here own one or least seen it IRL themselves ?? 
How would you comment on it...?? I'm using 540 Carbide at the moment, honestly is bit disappointing when I first got it....so much plastic through the entire case. Though it's not cheap plastic, rather thick but still...more plastic than my cheaper 400R...that thing was solid as hell...
Then the hard drive cages is total garbage...again flimsy soft plastic trays, cage is metal but rather soft as well and rattles like mad. The SSD cage is far worst...100% plastic but thicker...but also again like the HDD cage...rattling loose mess...

The side panel on the right is soft thin metal...I actually accidentally bend it a little...
The motherboard tray is rather thin and flimsy as well...when I had too many fans installed on the front, the vibration cause it to rattle and start making noise...
The best thing is, I paid 200$ for this case back then...

Now I've look at the Lancool Mesh 2 again, I'm thinking since the case is so cheap. I may want to get the Performance version, then slap on some of their Bora Digital ARGB fans on the front. Then a Noctua on the rear. The total price would add up similar to the P600S and slightly more over the P500A as well. 
But least for the Lancool Mesh 2, I be getting a fan controller which the P500A doesn't. And the fans maybe better too. What you guys think ?
