You want the switch at the front?
Turn the fucking thing around.
It won't make it look ugly. It already looks fugly with that white box on top of that patterned box. That looks like something a kid would knock up from two tissue boxes and some holographic decorative paper. It looks like shit. So turn it around to have the switch and indicators at the front.
Come to that, who said the switch was supposed to be at the back?
