Bitfenix is a popular case manufacturer in the PC enthusiast DIY crowd. At almost any LAN party you’ll see their Prodigy, and Phenom cases. They are very nice, and are stand out enclosures in their own right. They are also in what I call the sweet spot for cases – around $100. But what if your funds won’t stretch that far? Can you get that Bitfenix goodness at a lower price point? That’s what we are going to find out in this review. Bitfenix has a new chassis called Neos, and it arrives with a more budget friendly price of around $50, placing it in the value category.
Bitfenix’s Take on the Neos
“Simple yet stylish, feature-rich yet affordable, Neos is the ideal PC chassis for value seekers and first-time builders. The elegantly crafted mesh front panel brings a clean and uncluttered look to the chassis while bringing a splash of color to brighten up any computing space. Users can look forward to dedicated 3.5″ and 2.5” drive racks, and compatibility with graphics cards up to 30cm long. Neos makes installation easy with tool-free mechanisms and dual dust filters mean quick cleanup. To enable quick file transfers, Neos even comes equipped with a high-speed USB port. Brimming with niceties like an aluminum Bitfenix logo badge and a powder-coated interior, Neos brings a colorful and smart design at an eminently affordable price point.”
