Why oh why would you metallicize plastic?

Cons: Horrible static discharge problem. Search the internet for Antec Sonata Static problem. If
     I touch the front of the case without discharging myself, or my dog comes close to the
    case, the screen will go blank or blue and it will sometimes restart.

Other Thoughts: This problem is confirmed by Antec and I would not recommend buying until it
     is fixed. From Antec support:
Comment:
1. We are working on this problem with a high priority, and have already tested
     multiple proposed fixes. Unfortunately, the problem is turning out to be more difficult than
     anticipated. The case is currently being tested in a special ESD lab.
2. The metallicized plastic IS grounded. That fact is one of the reasons this problem is proving
     so difficult to pin down.
3. We cannot refund monies that were not paid to us, but if a customer needs help returning
     product to a distributor we can usually help arrange that if the distributor is being
     uncooperative.
4. We actually expect an answer fairly soon, and as soon as we can we will be making it available
     to customers encountering this problem. We definitely apologize for the inconvenience, but
     Antec is well known for the quality of its customer service and for the way we stand behind
     our products.
granted, it is a damn nice case, it's actually the one iXsystems uses for their FreeBSD Workstationhttp://www.ixsystems.com/apollo, but still...
