may not be a brand that most folks are all that familiar with, but they soon will be. While they manufacture case fans, power supplies, and video cards, they're making quite a bit of noise in the case category for delivering innovative design at an excellent price point. Recently Sentey sent one of their Black Box series cases along - the BX1-4284 v2.1. The BX1-4284, like most of their designs, come in three different configurations - version 2.1 has two case fans built into the side panel, version 2.2 has a 220mm side fan, and version 2.3 has a side window with a 120mm fan. This flexibility gives the consumer more choices and ultimately makes for a better, more appealing product.
The promotional image above provides a quick glimpse of the version of the case we will be reviewing, and before we take a closer look let's cover some basics on the case and the manufacturer...
"Sentey is projected as an American leader for the technology enthusiast. We want to be known as a brand with international impact that bases its best solutions in innovative processes and a strong and conscious development. Not only with individual components, based in the philosophy 'Do it yourself ', but also providing answers to the merging tendencies such as customized performance.
At Sentey our daily work is focused on obtaining a global computing experience.
The second decade of this millennium will see the reinforcement of Sentey as a premium brand. At this time, we will renew our commitment with innovation and we will open the doors to new product development inspired in passion for technological progress. This will be the perfect time for the continental expansion and the conquest of the world."
