With many design cases hitting the market it becomes harder than ever for customers to see the forest through the trees. NZXT
is adding another branch to their product tree today with the introduction of the Lexa Tower case; let’s hope it can stand up in this crowded market place.
NZXT is a company known for their case line-up which seems to have been inspired by the ’80 “Transformers” cartoon series, the Guardian and Nemesis are well constructed cases but their exterior does not appeal to everybody. Their reasoning for making these rather unordinary design choices was to avoid direct competition with large names like Cooler Master and Silverstone, which don’t carry product in this same “looks” range.
But now NZXT is after a larger piece of the pie, and their new case embodies this train of thought; The Lexa was supposedly named when somebody at the NXZT user forums saw a Lexus car commercial and posted the name “Lexa” in an ongoing naming contest. This entree apparently won; in order to position the Lexa between the BMW and Mercedes of the PC enclosure they had to change tactics. The Lexa is a step away from the “Transformer” like looks, and sports classier looks.
