A-Top Technology Z-Alien Enclosure Review - Conclusion

If you have a problem with the green little men which are extraterrestrials, please don't read this review. For those who are fine with our intergalactic neighbors, you might be interested in our review of the Z-Alien enclosure case from A-Top Technology. It got us interested, very interested indeed.

Conclusion

 

At first we thought the Z-Alien looked great then after 15 minutes of looking at the front, it kind of turned us off. After looking at it more closely as we began working with the case and trying to feel some love, we began to like the case as we grew accustomed to its unique looks.

 

It is nice to see something a little different hit the market. We see too many cases with a different color or a different window which has become quite boring. The Z-Alien case looks different and is extremely well made, and considering the price of around $140 US ($200 AU at PC Case Gear) with a 400 watt power supply, we really cannot complain one bit despite our efforts.

 

All the fans help push air around the case and with the 120mm fan at the back, the effectiveness of these fans is high. With its all over blue sleekness, it looks great and considering the price, it is nice to have these extra features which are normally something reserved for a more expensive casing option.

 

In summary there is no denying that this case isn't going to be for everyone - extraterrestrials might just plain scare the death out of some enthusiasts. If you're after a big aluminum case which is different from the norm in a way we consider very positive, it's probably worth having a second or third look at the Z-Alien case from A-Top Technology.
