Enermax CS-800TA-A7W Case

Manufacturer: Enermax
Supplied by: Maxpoint
Street Price: $70

By Graham Vinson (4/15/2004)


The guys and gals at Enermax have been manufacturing high-tech computer parts since early 1990 and through their 14 years of experience have invested much into development of their designs, testing and QA procedures. Apparent with their latest lines of products, paint has been the most noticeable feature that has become the focus of lots of attention.  Most of the cases we've seen before were very middle of the road, with incorporated features that made up for the lack of craftsmanship and durability.  As we take a look at the new CS-800TA case line, be sure to pay attention to the little things.

The 800TA came in a great big cardboard box, with child-like graphic design.  Great colors and lines in the printing, but where's the flair?  On the packing slip, Maxpoint noted it as the Voltron model, the name of my favorite childhood cartoon.  So from here on, it's Voltron.

What came with it?  The standard bag of miscellaneous screws, drive rails, the power adapter for the speed dial, shady directions at best and a face plate suited for most mobos.

The Voltron is offered in five colors.  These are red, black, white, yellow and blue.  Our Voltron is Kermit Frog Green.  A great color that really stands out in any environment, though it could be obnoxious in the wrong room.  It looked great in mine.
