As the computer enthusiast market expands, computer accessory manufacturers must expand to keep up with the trends of technology. AZZA is one of these manufacturers that shares these challenges with other organizations that provide these types of products. AZZA specializes in computer cases and power supplies, all of which are currently available on Newegg, Amazon, and other popular retailers. Unveiled in September, AZZA has designed the Hurrican 2000 computer case with ease of use in mind. The Hurrican 2000 features many innovative accommodations, not to mention the more important aspect of performance. As technology and performance improves, so does the heat output from these components. The Hurrican 2000 is featured in the October edition of Maximum PC, hinting at its rising popularity. The Hurrican series is available with black exterior, and the option between a black or a red interior. This review will provide an extensive overview and evaluation from unboxing, external and internal features, as well as a complete testing and comparison to other cases currently on the market.
The Hurrican 2000 is packaged in an attractive black cardboard box with the AZZA logo and a full sized top-down picture of the case, as well as a small quarter view in the bottom right. The left and right sides of the case each carry display the extensive list of features and specifications, which I will be exploring in this review. The rear of the box explores a more explicative list of features that AZZA has developed with the Hurrican 2000 layered over a picture of the inside of the case. The list of features that this case provides is quite impressive for its price, compared to other cases boasting similar features.
The Hurrican 2000 is protected in the packaging between two blocks of Styrofoam and is wrapped in a plastic bag with a protective film over the side panel windows to prevent accidental scratching. Thanks to this, the case made it safely to my door. Packaged with the case is the User's Manual in a Ziploc bag, and a plain white box that contains a 5.25" to 3.5" external drive adapter and internal spacers, two Molex splitters, two 12" red locking SATA cables, a set of black accessory screws, motherboard screws, standoffs, zip-ties, and a short PC speaker. After getting the case out of the box, my initial thoughts changed on how I felt about the look of the Hurrican as it is pictured on the box. The case looks great in person, despite the lack of depiction on the packaging since the picture on the front of the box is rather a rather limited view. That being said, my excitement for this case jumped up a few notches after getting it out of the box.
With the case out of the packaging, it is now time to start sharing the evaluation of the exterior. This will be on the next page.
