The chassis market has been quite a successful segment for Corsair. When they started with their Obsidian series they filled a gap in the enthusiast segment. The 800D is to date still respected and loved. Then with the Graphite series they pursued a somewhat more mainstream to prosumer level of PC cases. With the Carbide series Corsair enters 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 worked out 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 300R. Corsair markets the product being entry-level which is a bit peculiar with its price level at 90 USD, which really is a mainstream price.
Have a peek at the product reviewed today; the Carbide series 300R chassis from Corsair, costing 89.99 USD. It certainly comes with a nice design and a very decent feature set. Next page please.
