I would like to thank Fractal Design for providing the Define R4 review sample.
Most of you may not know Fractal Design, but the company has been making a splash with their unique enclosures for a competitive price. The company also sells power supplies, case fans, and a few accessories.
Not much else to say, but this is their official vision:
Our vision is to have a constant, healthy growth together with our partners worldwide. Our goal is to be widely recognized for our designed products and to have them available in all major market regions within EU and US. We should be a good alternative to the already established retail brands of today. It's of great importance for us that our partners understand the values of Fractal Design; therefore we are putting great effort into choosing the right partners from the start. We will work actively to maintain sales territories and profitable business for our partners.
We are taking a look at the Fractal Design Define R4 today, which is the latest update to the successful Define line of cases. As the R4 states, this is the forth revision of the chassis. As with previous models, the Define R4 is available in three different colors: black pearl, artic white, and titanium grey.
