NZXT Phantom 240 Review

Introduction

Since the introduction of the original Phantom back in late 2010 NZXT have continued to extend the line and refine the design, offering a Phantom case at a size and budget to appease most in the market place.  We say "most", as with the 410 setting you back some £80, up to now there hasn't been a real low cost entry point into the Phantom range.  Not being one to rest on their Laurels, NZXT have remedied this with the introduction of the new Phantom 240, which comes in at just £50 and boy is it a looker.  The Phantom lineage can clearly be seen in the lines, yet the 240 appears more refined, more sculpted and, it has to be said, more mature.  Beauty though is only skin deep and although the 240 will undoubtedly score highly for its looks we will need to see what's going on under the bonnet.

Looks like NZXT have taken the Phantom 240 to the Gym. Just look at those sculpted lines.

It's weird seeing a case that has curves instead of angles.
It looks strange, but in a good way. Not a case I would buy, but a good case non the less.

Awesome little budget case.

As SieB said, not something that I would use for a personal build, but definitely one to go on the list of cases to recommend to other people who are looking to do budget builds.

Awesome to see that we're getting a lot more case for the money compared to 3 years ago too!
