Value & Conclusion
|9.6||Corsair already has gained an excellent reputation for their cases in a considerably short time frame. With all of their cases occupying the higher end segments, the Carbide 400R is coming down below the magical (yes I said it) 100 USD barrier. While you may expect that such a case could have lost most of its appeal and functionality on the way to this milestone when compared to the previous Corsair enclosures, I am happy to report that this is not the case. Corsair has managed to impress in the past and continues to do so with the Carbide 400R. It features an excellent and really cool looking paint job, the same build quality we have seen on the 600T and all the core functionality of their modern case line up.|
The only gripe I have are the large openings which could have been covered with dust filters, but that's it. The design may not be for everyone, but those who seek an edgier look should consider the 500R once it hits the market. That said: watch out big players in the sub $100 market - the Carbide 400R may be the underdog, but packs quite the punch!
