NZXT LEXA-S LEXS-001BK Review
NZXT is on a roll. Their line of sub-$100 computer cases brings features to this market segment we haven't seen before, including fully finished interiors, rolled metal edges, and cable management, just to name a few things. The NZXT Lexa S Mid-Tower computer case is one of the more recent offerings in their "Crafted Series" line of cases. Festooned with a sleek black front door with integral LED lighting and fan controllers, this case would look great on your desk. But as a starting point for a new system build, how does LEXS-001BK model stack up?
I have to admit that NZXT has never been on my short list of computer cases to consider for my next build. Sub-$100 cases frequently had more compromises than I was willing to accept, with poor design and indifferent construction would conspire to make the build a pain— and in many cases that pain was literal, with scraped knuckles and sliced fingers providing a memorable lesson in "you get what you pay for." The NZXT Lexa S Mid-Tower Computer Case aims to break this tradition.
The purpose of a computer case is to hold all the computer's parts together while protecting them from disturbances and providing sufficient air flow to keep all the parts cool. But if you build your own systems (and would you be reading this review if you didn't ?), you probably have additional requirements: the case should look good, be easy to build a system into, provide enough room for all your components with some space left over for expansion, and make adding or removing components easy. And, of course, a good price/performance ratio always helps. NZXT's tag line for this line of cases is "Crafted Gaming Armor", and we'll see if the Lexa S lives up to the billing.
