NZXT Tempest Evo Case TEVO-001BK
Following the success of the original Tempest mid-tower computer case, NZXT tinkered around with its designs and came up with the NZXT Tempest Evo. The two cases share many of the same assets, and are both priced at $119.99. The Tempest Evo features an array of upgrades, including a unified paint job and better cable management. With a total of six 120mm intake/exhaust fans, the NZXT Tempest Evo mid-tower case promises excellent airflow. Benchmark Reviews takes a detailed inspection of the NZXT Tempest Evo mid-tower computer case, model TEVO-001BK, to see how much of an "evolution" it is and how close it comes to perfection.
Recently many companies have started offering revised versions of their popular hits, keeping what was praised and tweaking what was necessary. NZXT has done that several times. Revised cases allow the original product to stay competitive against newer models, and, at times, even surpass them. These cases don't pack as much "wow" factor, but they are expected to have overcome all quirky aspects. Existing features should be near perfection. This is not only attractive to buyers, but also attractive to manufacturers. Very little additional investment is required, everything from designs to the manufacturing process is re-used.
That being said, the NZXT Tempest Evo could definitly be priced a little lower to be more competitive (currently offering the mail-in rebate). For main-stream users there are many sub-$100 cases out there that will satisfy their needs. We shall see in this review whether or not the Evolved Tempest will be worth that little bit of extra cash.
