MODTHEBOX would like to thank Grace from Logisys Computer for providing the Assembled UV Red Acrylic Clear Case for review.

Logisys Computer

Introduction:

Acrylic style case enclosures have come along way since originating as DIY style projects within the case modding community. Originally used as a means for educational purposes, the standard acrylic case has transcended from the hands of system builders to computer enthusiasts. Most of the earlier concepts for replicating an ATX case design were home grown but recently their have been several manufacturers marketing new and revised computer enclosures. Logisys Computer based out Pomona, CA is a relative new player offering the latest cutting edge products to respond the demand of the fast-changing PC market. The company has a full line of PC gaming cases, PC modification accessories, multimedia speaker systems, and Xenix inputting devices. Today in the MTB Labs, we will be evaluating the Logisys CS888UVRD Assembled UV Red Acrylic Clear Case, a complete see through ATX case enclosure.

Specifications:

The CS888UVRD Assembled UV Red Acrylic Clear Case is the one of many consumer based cases offered by Logisys Computer and is available in several configurations including Clear, UV Green and UV Blue. The CS888UVRD is first generation product and is based on a mid-tower configuration. Here are some of the case specifications taken directly from the Logisys Computer website:

The Logisys Assembled UV Red Acrylic Clear Case was shipped in a colourful double-walled corrugated box with the case manufacturer's logos and images printed on all sides. The packaging inside the box was excellent using a unique solution to keep the case protected and stationary. Two large pieces of polystyrene blocks was used to conceal the case in additional to two layers of protective bubble wrap. I was pleased to see that additional attention was placed on protecting the case during the shipping process.

Out of the box, my first impressions of the Logisys Assembled UV Red Acrylic Clear Case were positive. The very first noticeable aspect of the case is the bright red UV acrylic material that makes up the composition of the case. The case measures approximately 310mm (W) x 575mm (H) x 620mm (L) and supports all Micro and Full ATX motherboards. A series of counter sunk screws secure all the panels together with the top portion of the case supported by four acrylic blocks and metal anchors. The front bezel is very stylish and well laid out accommodating all the necessary features found on standard steel or aluminum based ATX cases. The Logisys Assembled UV Red Acrylic Clear Case includes an assortment of accessories which consist of four circular acrylic feet, metal PCI slot brackets, motherboard stand-offs, mounting screws, and an ATX I/O panel. The case does not come equipped with a stock power supply and consumers will be required to purchase this item separately.
