Review: Grab it by the handle and take it away
With Colossus, BitFenix has shown that computer cases need not be classic rectangular tin cans, but that a well designed and thought out case can be a real exhibition material.
Apart from looks, BitFenix wanted to make sure that users are pleased with performance, strength and durability of their products. That’s how our today’s case, the Survivor, came to be and it looks like a godsend for frequent LAN party goers. That the case’s mobility is great is evident from the picture below. The handle you see can be folded within the top panel and not disrupt the looks.
Before we move onto a more detailed description, you should know that BitFenix offers two versions of this case – the Survivor and Survivor Core. Compared to the Survivor Core, Survivor comes with USB 3.0 connectors and an additional fan. However, many users who aren’t quite hot for USB 3.0 asked for Survivor Core, mostly due to pricing. You can find the Survivor listed at around €80 whereas Survivor Core goes for about €70, here.
