NZXT Phantom 240 Review

NZXT Phantom 240 Review


Since the introduction of the original Phantom back in late 2010 NZXT have continued to extend the line and refine the design, offering a Phantom case at a size and budget to appease most in the market place.  We say “most”, as with the 410 setting you back some £80, up to now there hasn’t been a real low cost entry point into the Phantom range.  Not being one to rest on their Laurels, NZXT have remedied this with the introduction of the new Phantom 240, which comes in at just £50 and boy is it a looker.  The Phantom lineage can clearly be seen in the lines, yet the 240 appears more refined, more sculpted and, it has to be said, more mature.  Beauty though is only skin deep and although the 240 will undoubtedly score highly for its looks we will need to see what’s going on under the bonnet.
