    Flight case is heavy and bulky. I would suggest a well-constructed DJ bag with a decksaver.

    yea I haven't seen the flight case personally but from what I've read/seen on youtube I wouldn't buy one...

    The biggest flaw to me is that the part where your laptop sits on doesn't have a slide lock or whatever, meaning it can slide all the way off while your laptop is on it and to me that's just an accident waiting to happen

    There are cheaper laptop stands out there... you can even make one for under $10 with a few parts from the hardware store.

    Honestly, 90% of the time, I don't even use my stand. If you have an S4, then you really don't need to touch the computer.

    I saw a DJ with the case the other day and it didn't appear too heavy. I mean, it has to be lighter than a technics 1200 case. I'm no olympic lifter but it seemed like a nice size and gave a "cool dj" look.

    honestly if you want a laptop stand that badly it can't be too hard to build one. I don't need one at home and every club I've gone to has one anyway.

    I have the flight case. Yes, it IS heavy and bulky, but if you plan to take any flights ever with your S4. Thing is a fuckin tank. I also like it for it's quick pack up. You can go from DJing to leaving in <5 min.

    The questions isn't which is better, bag or flight case? They have different uses. Will you be carrying it from your home by hand to a show? Will you be traveling or in places where your S4 might get bumped around?
