NZXT Lexa Mid-Tower Computer Case ReviewFormer staff writer - May 12, 2006
Lexa, meaning the "Protector of Men" but in this case it stands for, " Protector of Components". The Lexa Mid Tower Case is the newest product in the NZXT Classic Series line. The Lexa's chassis is built of aluminum, while its bezel is made of plastic with an aluminum faceplate. Its modern but versatile design will easily fit in any household.
NZXT, was established in 2004, a company whose interest is built on providing every gamer with a case they can identify with. NZXT presently has two series of cases, Classic which includes the Lexa and Trinity and the Crafted, which include the Guardian, Nemesis and Nemesis Elite. NZXT also has its own line of power supplies, The Precise Series, consisting of a 550w and 650w version.
When I first saw this case in Maximum PC it sparked my interest. I knew this product would be something that I'd like to review. Thanks to NZXT, I have that opportunity so lets give it a closer look.
This case comes packaged in a black and white box with a picture of the case on both the front and the back. After it was delivered, I couldn't wait to see what was inside.
After opening the box I was surprised to see that the case came with a shirt, lan bag and a poster* of the case. (*Not shown)
Well enough of the goodies lets get back to the case. The case was protected by two large styrofoam inserts and was covered with plastic so it wouldn't get scratched. I was impressed with this case, it really shines. From front to back you'll have no problem seeing your reflection. Inside the case is a box with all the connectors and the cases manual.
While looking over the case I was quite impressed with the quality of the workmanship. One of my major concerns when I review a case is the way that all the doors and bezel line up; I don't like to see that there are large spaces or gaps in the workmanship. These lines were perfect, the doors and bezel line up like you would expect to see in an expensive sports car. The inside of the case is of all aluminum construction and is very spacious for being a mid tower case.
