Beharbros: Dreamcase Pre-order

Post#1 » Mon Mar 09, 2020 8:26 am

Last week I received a email from Beharbros.
A while back I ordered the Toro from them and enjoying it since.

Now they are offering a custom case for the Dreamcast with a custom fan, power supply and a DCHDMI opening.

Information:

  • Dreamcase is a New Generation " Metal Shell " For Dreamcast
  • Metallic Silver car paint
  • No Heat Issues with the GDEMU.
  • Easy Installation
  • Instruction Manual
  • High Quality Product BOX
  • Blue Backlight ( Homogeneous )
  • Compatible with the GDEMU and DCHDMI
  • New Technology DC 12V Mini Power Supply
  • Extender PCB for SD-Card
  • Game Swap Button for GDEMU
  • Compatible with 56K Modem and DreamPİ
  • 40MM Silent Fan ( Noctua Supported )
  • Not Supporting the original GD-ROM nor USB-GDROM
  • Metal Sticker with Serial Number for Each Case
  • 12V Adapter is INCLUDED in the package

Now I send them a email because I own a USB-GDROM which is not supported.
Their responds: If your USBGDROM has an inwards USB port, then it should be compatible with it.
My USB-GDROM is inwards so I have pre-ordered the Dreamcase.

The back shows a custom port for the DCHDMI mod which I dont have yet... (searching for someone to do this for me ;))

Not that it looks bad or anything but why would anyone want to replace the classic Dreamcast design with something that looks like a generic NUC or Apple TV?

I would. But that is because I also like the internal mods so it nice and cooled.
Still searching for a good replacement original case because my has some scratches on it.

Not sure if I keep it in this case but I love the fact they are still supporting the Dreamcast community with new products.

For sure, I don't want to sound like a hater or anything. Those guys are awesome and love all their great Dreamcast products.

I'm definitely not a purist as I have DCHDMI and GDEMU and I just don't see the point. With a PSU mod, Noctua fan and GDEMU tray the Dreamcast internals are cool enough. Dreamcast console design is timeless and awesome :D

True it really is timeless :)
I wanted a clear case (black or transparent) but not able to get my hands on it.

DCHDMI looks so sweet but I need to get some help installing it. :D

I'm comfortable doing most mods but DCHDMI was beyond my skill level. Definitely worth the money if you play DC a lot!

In my opinion it's a missed opportunity they didn't go all in, and make the "dreamcase" the all-in-one solution (DreamPi, regular SD-card and wireless controller-'dongle' integration, I'm looking at you).

That would be neat indeed. Fully modded and future proof.

Recieved the Dreamcase today and it feels and looks amazing!
Still need some time to fit the Dreamcast but I think it looks nice.

Please note that the blue front and back also can be red, but I am living in Europe and used to the blue color.
