Reviewed By: Justin


I have been in search of a new case for many months. When looking for my previous case, I went for aesthetics over function and purchased one of the translucent cases. While, at the time, it was really cool looking, working inside of it was a pain. Not only was it hard to maneuver my hands inside the case, the power supply was over the processor, and I cut my hands a lot on it. Once my tax return came in, it was time to get that new case, and thank Uncle Sam for it. So I looked across the Internet for the perfect case. Finally, a friend of mine recommended the Antec SX840 to me. After looking at it and thinking to myself that it would be a good review case, I went down to BudgetPC in Newburgh, Indiana and ordered it.


First Impressions:

I went into BudgetPC to pick up the case on Saturday afternoon. I walked in and saw it sitting there in its box all by its lonesome, and knew I had to get it home quickly. The case came packaged in a thick Antec cardboard box and was protected by a Styrofoam mold. I did not notice any scratches or dents in the case from its trip, so the packing was sufficient for me. When I got home, I took the case out of its box and realized that it is quite heavy compared to my old translucent one. The case is made of high quality metal that it would be quite hard to destroy. The front of the case is made of plastic, and I noticed that the faceplate to the drive bays comes off and that drives are mounted using brackets. The brackets are screwed to the sides of the drives, and then you slide the drives in.
