Whether we admit it or not the very first thing we all take into account just before we buy something is the appearance factor and so if we don't like the way something looks in all likelihood we are going to skip it and try to find a more suitable/better looking candidate. However sometimes we need to prioritize the things we want most from a product and so especially when we're on a tight budget it's more likely that we will choose features and performance over appearance. Our friends over at Bitfenix are well aware of this and although they launched their brand name with two rather high end PC cases (Colossus/Survivor) for the past year they've been manufacturing low-cost yet feature-rich solutions without emphasizing on appearance. The Outlaw by BitFenix is one such PC Case and today we will be taking a closer look at it.
Focused on combining superior design with the latest advances in technology, BitFenix creates state-of-the-art computer hardware and peripherals that blur the line between man and machine. Users shouldn't have to adjust themselves to the way their hardware works. So, we strive to put the user in complete control of his hardware, so that it functions as an extension of his will, and not as another variable he has to compensate for. In the heat of battle, the user should not have to worry about the state of his equipment, which is why BitFenix products are engineered to perform under even the most extreme conditions. No matter how taxing the situation, users can rely on the strength of BitFenix products to perform as they are intended. Finally, BitFenix is about performance. In the top levels of competition, the difference between first and second place can be razor-thin, which means that every advantage counts. BitFenix is about making high-performing products that give users an edge. BitFenix is the result of the collaboration of several veterans in both the technology and gaming industries. From the same minds behind some of technology’s most venerable products, our goal is to create products that grant the user the utmost control, strength, and performance to complete their computing tasks. We understand that some of the most innovative and novel concepts come from the community itself, which is why we take great steps to listen to the needs of our users and develop optimal ways to integrate their ideas into our products. By working closely with the global community, BitFenix is able to engineer solutions that directly address the needs of our users. Combining a deep understanding of gaming and other high-demand computing applications with superior engineering and design know-how, the BitFenix team is dedicated to creating the go-to computing products and peripherals for those who refuse to quit.
Just like the Shinobi or the Raider the Outlaw packs an impressive price/features ratio which is certainly what will attract casual users and gamers the most. Overall the Bitfenix Outlaw is with ease one the best sub USD50/40Euros PC Cases currently in the market and to be honest with all of you i did not ever expect to see such a low-cost PC case feature an inverted mainboard space. That basically means that instead of the usual configuration (top rear I/O, middle PCIex, bottom PSU) this time over the mainboard is placed upside down (top PCIex, middle rear I/O, bottom PSU). But once again such reviews are pretty much based on what you can see (pictures) so let's take a closer look at the BitFenix Outlaw PC Case.
