    MGE XG Dragon Case Review - Wrapping it up


    (Page 10 of 10 )

    When I first started this review, I was expecting a cool case to come from it, but the results were really amazing.  I had only a small list of issues with it, and most of them were very minor.  The biggest issues I had with it, were the scratches on the inside of the acrylic window (from the cables and accessory box smacking against it, in transit) and the PCI Expansion card tool-less lock down (which just didnít secure my video card).

    Overall, these seem insignificant considering how cool this case is! Here's a higher resolution image of the case glowing with the mod kit. You can see the dragon etched in the window. Looks awesome!

    Pros

    • Extremely cool design
    • All aluminum construction
    • Integrated handle
    • Removable motherboard tray
    • LED Display
    • Decent PSU included
    • Tool-less design
    • Includes 2 case fans
    • Front panel USB, Firewire, Headphone, and Microphone

    Cons

    • Inside of acrylic window needs protection in shipping
    • Tool-less PCI card lock down didnít work
    • A little on the pricy side ($175 at the time of this writing)

    This case was a joy to work with and turned out to be awesome.  The extra modkit gave it extra cool points.  I even brought it in to show everyone in the office, and almost didnít make it back out the door alive.

    Overall, I would give this case a 9 out of 10 rating, and give it our Dev Hardware Recommended product award.

    Iíd like to thank MGE for sending us this Dragon case to review.  To see more about the Dragon case, or another of MGEís designs, go to http://www.xgbox.com.
