Cougar Dark Blader G Review

Cougar Dark Blader G Review 

Introduction

When we first looked at the Cougar website, our initial thoughts were along the lines of ‘cheap plastic cases’, ‘style over substance’, ‘sharp edges’ and ‘will break easily’.  If we’re even more honest, when we first saw the box, we did a double-take because we honestly thought it said ‘Dark Bladder’ which unfortunately stimulated some deep adolescent ‘Black Adder’ double-entendre.  Teenage giggles aside, when we actually started digging down into the substance of the Blader, we were more than pleasantly surprised.  So if you’re looking for a nearly full glass ‘show off’ case, that retains excellent cooling and hardware credentials we recommend you read on.
