NZXT is often a regular product supplier here at OCIA.net, for example roughly one out of every five cases we review comes from them. So while you could say we are pretty familiar with their designs, there are times when they can surprise even the reviewers here. Just a few months ago, Rutledge checked out the NZXT Beta chassis, which earned our Seal of Approval for its features, classic good looks and low price. Today I have the opportunity to review another of their most recent designs, the Panzerbox.
Like the Beta, the Panzerbox comes from NZXT's Classic Series, those chassis typically with a more conservative appearance than their Crafted product line. Also along the same lines as the Beta, the Panzerbox is advertised as a mid-tower case and comes painted black inside and out. But there is where the similarities end. The Panzerbox is constructed of aluminum rather than steel, and features a unique shortened size that nearly lends itself to being classified as a micro-tower design.
Join me as I take a closer look at the NZXT Panzerbox.
