NZXT Apollo Orange Midtower Case
August 04, 2006

When you think about computer case manufacturers, you probably do not immediately think of NZXT. They have been manufacturing cases since 2004, so they are fairly new. In fact, their line-up consists of six midtower cases and two power supplies. Not a wide range of equipment, but having a large line up does not mean components are high quality. Let's take a look at one of NZXT's newer cases, the Apollo, to see how well it is built and whether their cases warrant your attention.


Before taking a look at the case provided for review, let's look at some published data on the Apollo...

Packaging:

Like many case boxes, this is made out of heavy duty cardboard. It has been designed for a retail setting, with the front of the box showing a futuristic city along with a view of the case. The back side is fairly empty, just showing the case, listing the features (as listed above), and the colors the case is available in (silver, black, orange, and blue).

Opening the box reveals the case wrapped in a plastic bag, flanked by two large styrofoam blocks. Nothing unusual, this is fairly standard packaging. The box showed a little shipping damage, however the packaging did its job and the case was unharmed.
