Has anyone got their hands on this yet?

They’ve collaborated with Silverstone. Metallic casing appeals me much more than plastic. There seem to be two standard size fans. Unique cooling solution. I am afraid the GPU is not replaceable.

I found a review:

Only 1.38kg, 230W external PSU

Goalque, it's 1.38kgs without the 230W PSU which tends to weigh around 1.1kg. So total weight is ~2.48kgs, around that of the Sonnet Puck RX570 or Aorus Gaming Box. I don't see any pricing or US availability info.  Could be a nice quiet mini eGPU option.

I wonder when someone will launch and AMD RX 580 based eGPU at the size of Aorus Gaming Box with power delivery at least 87 watt. That would be the bestseller eGPU on the market. Is it too hard to think this and make a real product.

Love the size, love the 1060 (feel its the sweet spot for Ultrabooks) but my god that case I ugly as sin... it's quite hard to get a simple box wrong but they have managed it!

I see it on my country's websites. 
GALAX Gaming Box , Galax Box
Just wondering if someone has purchased and has opinions on it? I'm looking for small compact EGPU's to take with me on my trips (since my work computer is an X1 Carbon with no GPU). 
My options are:
1. Aorus 1070 Box (always sold out on Amazon)
2. ZOTAC Amp Box Mini (cons: big power brick, no power for charging)
3. GALAX Gaming Box (cons: no usb ports, not sure if provides charging)
4. Sonnet eGFX Breakaway Puck (Pro: supports charging, Cons: decent size power brick, no usb ports)
5. Lenovo Graphics Dock (cons: I heard lots of compatibility issues along with can't update the NVIDIA drivers.) 
My first choice is Aorus 1070 since it has the best graphics card + no power brick. But it's always sold out.

I was wondering if anyone had the GALAX before I make my decision.

Hello,

Did you finally make your choice since April ?
The GALAX just popped on several websites in France, and I am very interested. Best quality/price so far in all I can have access to! Only problem, too few reviews online, so I am afraid.

Many thanks !

Here it is :

It's a well known web retailer in France afiliated to the giant group Carrefour (equivalent to wallmart), so not an obscure website. I am very tempted ATM -_- My wife is not happy xD
