Phanteks changes the name of their Enthoo Luxe 2 case following complaints from Thermaltake

Apparently 'Luxe 2' is too close to 'Luxa 2'.

Phanteks changes the name of their Enthoo Luxe 2 case following complaints from Thermaltake

Phanteks has announced that they have changed the name of their Enthoo Luxe 2 chassis to the Enthoo 719, avoiding potential litigation from Thermaltake. 

Thermaltake requested the name change in a recent letter, which suggested that Phanteks' "Enthoo Luxe 2" product name is similar to their "Luxa 2" trademark. In their letter, Thermaltake requested that Phanteks change the name of their case to prevent confusion. 

To prevent any litigation, and to put this matter to rest quickly, Phanteks has changed the name of their Enthoo Luxe 2 chassis and released the following response on social media. This response disagrees with Thermaltake's assertions and states that Phanteks would rather spend its time "creating innovative products" than participating in trademark disputes.  
 

  Phanteks recently received a letter from Thermaltake suggesting that the Enthoo Luxe 2 product name has similarities to their "Luxa 2" mark, a mobile accessory brand.

We strongly disagree with this finding as the Luxe 2 is simply an iteration of the original, a computer chassis. We never had the intent to cause confusion by using the name described.

We have decided to move on and change the product name to “Enthoo 719” to allow us to spend less time on this matter and concentrate on creating innovative products for our users. Thank you for your understanding.

Phanteks' Enthoo 719 chassis is the same as their Enthoo Luxe 2. The only change to the case is its name. Thermaltake has made no public statements regarding this matter.

Umm, TT didn't put Case Labs out of business, Donald Trump's tariffs did. Plus, anyone who gets confused between Case Labs and Thermaltake doesn't deserve a nice case. That TT / Case Labs crap was WAY overblown by a bunch of idiot fanboys who saw similar grill patterns as the "be all end all". No one gets confused between STEEL and AIRCRAFT GRADE ALUMINUM. Just lift the bloody thing and you'll see quite the difference.

Plus, and I say this as a fan of Case Labs, their grill pattern was NOT ORIGINAL. CL started out building custom racks in server rooms, and that grill pattern was all over the place back in the day, on everything from IBM mainframes to Sun Microsystems hardware, etc. So they copied it, because it was a proven design for good airflow. That's what it made it so laughable when people started freaking about about TT "ripping off" Case Labs, due to a similar mesh pattern that wasn't even theirs to begin with. The more you know...Quote

They said this to put blame and not face the truth. Reality is the US economy is seeing the most explosive growth in decades and virtually all markets are seeing growth with interest rates at extremely low levels. The fact that they still couldn't keep up in business just means they were already struggling on top of the fact that Trump reduced taxes for businesses by 14%.Quote
