Because when looking for a mid-sized tower case, it is the best bang for the buck currently on the market..

I also like the HAF 922 because of its great cable management features.. (not exactly the same price range though)

So why the P193 is more expensive by almost 100$??

And I'm just curious, Which one is the best full-sized tower case?

In honesty I just put together a build using the Rosewill Wind Night, it's a decent case that fits everything fine. Before I had a Windtunnel full size that I sold off and bought this nicely sized mid case. Great cooling, comes pre-installed with two fans, psu goes on bottom, but a few design flaws makes large pcu coolers have problems.

~ AthlonIIx3(UCx4) OC@3.6GHz ~ A-DATA XPG-GS,V2.0 4gb(2x2)
~ ASUS-785G 1xpci-e ~ Radeon 4870@OC 1gb
~ Rosewill Wind Night Med Case ~ Rosewill 500 W SLI/CFX rdy
~ WDx3@7200RPM(500gbx1, 200gbx2) ~ ASUS 20"

Full-size I'd go with the HAF-X for air cooling and 800D for water
