The second part of my first impression was all about the finish. The exterior and interior paint is exactly the same, but I almost don't dare to call it paint. Although I am sure it is a hearty baked-on powder coat, the finish has the look of hammerite. The texture seems like that of military-grade Parkerization, which is a scratch-proof and weather-proof coating for harsh combat environments. This would be an ideal case for the habitual LAN-gamer; able to take the abuse of always being on the move without showing it. I did a close inspection of the entire case and could not find a spot that was missed during the powder coating process. Most budget cases have a spot or two that just don't get a full coat of paint, but the Gamma shows real attention to detail.
