X-Pider Aluminum Case ReviewFormer staff writer - February 23, 2004
We've all seen the Alienware, Antec, Chenming, Chieftec, Enermax, and Thermaltake Xaser cases that look exactly the same. The reason they look the same, is because, surprise, they are made by the same people. The question, who actually makes all of these cases seams to be one of the Tech World's most unsolved mysteries - And a mystery, we'll try to uncover in our review of the Turbo Case X-Pider Aluminum Case. While we're at it, we'll also take time to review the PSU that came with the case, as well as the matching Keyboard and mouse that Aspire kindly provided to us.

When UPS arrived to deliver the case, I was surprised to find two boxes. I had forgotten at the time that Aspire was sending me a matching Keyboard/Mouse with the case. And sure enough, that's what was included in the 2nd box. Both boxes looked like they were roughed up a bit, but thankfully everything inside was well packed, and undamaged.
