As I am sure most of my readers know: the mid-tower chassis segment is completely full of cases ranging in price anywhere from around $25, to nearly $200. For many customers, what sets all of these cases apart are the aesthetics. While pricing is the most important factor in choosing a new case, the next things customers normally consider are the feature sets, and whether or not the case matches the themed build you are looking to complete. However, the first thing I look for is innovation; a full feature set worthy of the investment. To me, price is the last concern, as it has to look good, fit the components I need, and it must have the ability to expand as my needs do.
This time around, Thermaltake is taking a crack at offering a few of the items that sell me on a design. We have seen quite a few newer designs from Thermaltake over the years, some huge successes, and some were not much more than a box to hold your parts. However, they have been steadily improving their game over the years, and have dug themselves out of that RadioShack brand they used to be.
Now, Thermaltake is one of the top companies to buy products from. With that said, they now have the time to delve into designs that are top of the line; the 'take no prisoners' designs. However, they also have to remember where they got their start, and continue to appeal to those buyers who don't have the money, or the know how to even think about cases like the Level 10.
This time around, as we look at the Chaser A21 from Thermaltake, we are given a mid-tower chassis that not only looks appealing, but it also offers a lot of the things needed to function properly with today's components. Thermaltake offers all of this at a very economical level, making this a chassis that anyone could afford to grab.
Hang out a while, and have a look at what the Chaser A21 offers; see if it can house everything you need, whether it's expandable as your needs and desires change, and in the end, whether it is worthy of my endorsement on any, or all levels.
