Corsair's all budget Carbide 200R
Let's face it, Corsair has been going strong in the chassis market. Very few of their PC cases left us with mixed feelings. It started with that Obsidian 800D which to date is a very reputable and desirable chassis. With the Graphite series they pursued a somewhat more mainstream to gamers level of PC cases.
And then came the Carbide series for which Corsair pursued the mainstream market, and as we all know that means a cheaper product often resulting in stripped away features, style and functionality that we know and learned to love, from say the Obsidian or Graphite series. Admittedly what Corsair has been doing with the Carbide series works well, as it did convince me in a positive way when they launched the initial series. These chassis remain good looking and really are feature rich products. Keywords here would be: okay design, tool free, lots of of space, nice airflow and prepped for liquid cooling.
The flipside of the coin for a somewhat more affordable product series is losing features like hot-swappable front side storage, fan controllers, stuff like top side drive bays, see through windows and so on.
The latest in the Carbide series of PC cases from Corsair would is the 200R. Corsair markets the product being entry-level whichwhicvh is true, look it up at NewEgg and you'll spot the chassis for 59 USD already. Here in the EU we see the price at roughly 55 EUR. For that money you'll receive a very good looking compact chassi, all black design, Spacious enough interior, tool fee ... heck even USB 3.0 ports have been embedded into the chassis. Not bad considering it's price range, not bad at all.
So yeah, the 20R certainly comes with a good design and a very decent feature set. But let's have a look in-depth, next page please.
We review a new chassis from Corsair, it Obsidian 350D. It is the mini-me version of the new Obsidian 900D chassis. Not mid, not full, mini and this intended for small form factor PCs. Now the product might be tagged as mini, the details and features however are grand. Armed with a price much better then the 900D this might be the product a lot of you are on the lookout for.
Corsair Voyager Air review
We review the Voyager Air, it is a portable storage unit allows you to connect it towards USB 3.0 and Ethernet, but it also includes WIFI support and it actually comes on a 100 GB HDD model as well. This great looking device might just be what the doctor to move or stream your content from.
Corsair Obsidian 900D review
We test and review the all new Corsair Obsidian 900D chassis. Not, mid, not full heck, this is a super tower. Probably one of the biggest products you have seen to date. It is highly configurable has hidden options in every corner and a craftsmanship that will stun you.
Corsair H90 review
A test and review the Corsair H90 liquid cooler. The Hydro Series H90 is Corsairs first 140mm Liquid Cooling solution that is bound to draw some impressive heat from your processor.
