Review: Beats the old Scout in quality but not in price


The top panel and the handles were what gave the original Scout much of its character, and long it may continue.

The handle is rubber coated and comfortable. We didn’t find any info on how much the handle can take, but we got the impression that it would easily handle the Scout 2, even if we filled it with rocks.

The handle was moved backwards, which provided better balance when carrying the case. Once it’s is filled with gear, the weight will balance itself nicely.

The top panel has two USB 3.0 connectors, two USB 2.0 connectors, audio out, mic in, power, restart and LED toggle controls. The Scout 2 is a mid tower case, 51.7cm tall, so we had no trouble reaching the controls when we put it under the table.

The top panel has air exhausts with removable dust filters.

scout-7

Note that the filters are held in place with clips that must be handled with care so as not to break them.

This filter doesn’t have any finer mesh on the inside, as is the case with the front panel. The top panel holds room for two 120mm fans, but they don’t come stocked.

We wanted to see the top of the case and build quality so we removed the plastic.

What we’ve seen is a job well done. There isn’t a single inch of sloppy execution to be found and everything is tight with no sharp edges.
