What we really like about this latest Phantom chassis is that even being the fourth or fifth version of a Phantom we have seen so far, it still stands out amongst its brethren. With enough of the styling from the original design to show this is a Phantom chassis at just a quick glance, we appreciated the newer rounded styling, as well as the changes made inside. We also liked the ease in which everything installs, and the cleanliness in which everything is able to be wired. When all was said and done, we were left with a finished product that is a real treat to view through the chassis' large window.
If this design kicks off, and the market takes to it as we think it will, we hope to eventually see it in color choices other than white, as NZXT does tend to offer more options later in the lives of their products. Other than having more color choices, we also would have liked to see a USB 2.0 adapter for users of older systems to take full advantage of this design.
We also still haven't sorted out how those rub marks got on the inside of the window. Outside of those very small issues, there really is nothing to knock this design down a peg for. NZXT simply proves that little things can make all the difference, and keep an older series of cases relevant in today's market.
At its current pricing, we feel the Phantom 240 is worth every penny of the near $70 investment. Compared to something like the slightly more expensive Shadow from BitFenix, you are getting much more chassis for your dollar in this newest Phantom. The Phantom 240 offers everything you need in a mid-tower chassis, delivers new aesthetics while keeping its heritage intact, and even though the stock cooling is not so great, there are plenty of options left to change that to suit your needs.
If you were ever a fan of the Phantom, and for some reason never got on the train, now would be a great time to reconsider that idea, as we have seen the Phantom 240 is one of the most refined designs offered yet.
