Upon first glance, you may want to complain about a few things. The lack of a dust filter in the front of the case comes to mind, the fact that the bays are not removable, or the fact that the expansion slot covers are knock-out covers, but try to keep a perspective on what AZZA has done. AZZA had a plan to offer a chassis to the budget minded folks out there, and in doing so, they wanted to step up with the features and appeal of the design. We feel that in both respects, they have succeeded. The styling of the chassis is somewhat aggressive with the diamond patterned plastic and the angular lines, yet it even delivers an air of sophistication. All things considered, there is much to appreciate for the price you will pay to fill up the Titan 240 from AZZA.
We do wish that AZZA did not use Molex powered fans, but the ones chosen are near silent at full speed, pushing only 27 dB of noise out of the chassis. We found nothing out of the ordinary in the build process, but with the restrictions for the PSU and CPU Air Cooler, be mindful of what parts you choose to go inside of it. We were able to push the bounds of what the AZZA Titan 240 offers inside of the case, and are pleased with the results. The parts are cool inside, there is a little noise in accomplishing this task, and we have grown to like all of the views into the chassis with the three windows found around it. To be blunt, it may not be the best case sold today, but the Titan 240 from AZZA will hold all of your gear, without holding onto your bank account.
The MSRP was set to $69.99, and if we had to pay that price, we would be harsher in our review, but gladly, most locations are selling the Titan 240 for less than the MSRP. At just $59.99, we feel there is quite a bit to like for the investment, but if you can get the rebate back from Newegg, paying only $44.99 for this chassis makes the deal so much sweeter. The Titan 240 is well appointed, even if slightly old-school in its internal appearance, and for less than $50 for a mid-tower chassis has budget builders and system builders firmly in their sights.
If you liked what the Photios 250 brought to the table, but found the aggressive styling a bit of a put-off, you can get all of the same love in a more elegant packaging now with the Titan 240 mid-tower chassis from AZZA, and for even less money.

Product Summary Breakdown
|Overall TweakTown Rating||95%|
The Bottom Line: AZZA's Titan 240 is the more sophisticated looking brother of the Photios 250. Both are identical on the inside and in their feature set, but we do feel that with a lower price and a cleaner appearance, the Titan 240 is the better of the two to pick.
