Rosewill, the leading brand of PC components and peripherals and award-winning power supplies, computer cases, and gaming peripherals, has released the Galaxy Series gaming cases. With top selling mid-towers such as Challenger, Blackbone, and Redbone, the Galaxy Series is expected to continue the budget gaming mid-tower success as Rosewill is increasing its product range to cover all bases between low, mid, and upper end brackets. With a healthy double digit growth in the first half of 2013 for Computer Cases despite the growing decline among competitors, Rosewill is rising in popularity as it continues to grow and expand within the U.S. and global markets and without delay, driving to spread its influence in markets worldwide online, brick and mortar locations, and through distribution channels.

Rosewill has always been known for their value and quality and the Galaxy series cases are no exception. Three new cases geared for the entry level of Rosewill's case spectrum surprisingly doesn't feel entry level because they leave nothing to be desired. It comes in any color as long as it's black with a front 120mm fan with Blue LEDs to accentuate its gaming aesthetics. The Galaxy Series cases are ideal for PC builders and gamers for its large internal capacity with support for large powerful graphics cards, performance CPU Coolers, and a 2.5" superfast SSD. With its $49.99 MSRP, it is definitely a case that will help you hit your target DIY build price.



Performance Cooling
With 3 pre-installed 120mm fans, cool air will be constant and internal components will be shielded from intense heat. With an optional slot on the side panel for an additional 120/140mm fan, the Galaxy Series are definitely cool. The power supply is bottom mounted to allow cool air to be drawn through the pre-installed removable bottom mounted dust filter while also providing a stable platform.

Expansion and Compatibility
Supporting Micro ATX and ATX motherboards, expansion is provided for up to 4 3.5" and 3 5.25" devices and expansion slots for up to 7 add-on cards. VGAs are supported up to 11 inches and CPU Coolers have a clearance of 160mm allowing many upgrade options to choose from when deciding to build your PC. A dedicated slot for a 2.5" SSD is also provided to give your system blazing performance should you choose.

Design
The feather like weight, angled lines, sharp angles, accentuating colors, and a bit of aggressiveness gives the Galaxy Series personality.

I've had that rosewill midi tower case for 6 months now, catch is its a AVP Defender. The rosewill is a blatant ripoff.

Here's the Defender:

In that case AvP is just as a "ripoff" as Rosewill because AvP Diablo is clearly just a CFI A1028. http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Xilence/XQ_Interceptor_Pro/

But seriously, that's how things work. There are fewer manufacturers/designers than brands. Most just take a finished product and put their sticker on. Some, including, Rosewill sometimes make slight modifications.

Thing about Rosewill, they bring products to US that are usually otherwise unavailable there.

Rosewill Destroyer is pretty much a HEC Blitz (which is probably a clone of something else even, it had a Cougar Vortex fan installed) with slightly different front panel and a different side panel. As mentioned above, Rosewill usually just rebrands things. For instance, many of their PSUs are made by ATNG or Super Flower (the gold rated ones), their 2 port VGA palmtop KVMs are pretty much identical to Linkskey KVMs, etc.

um no not really because the case you linked is clearly different, similar styles yes, the one Rcoon linked is the exact same design :rolleyes:

In any case they're both probably just OEM Chinese boxes rebadged

P.S I have the AVP Rcoon linked too as I'm poor atm :cry: :laugh:
Nah, CFI A1028, AvP Diablo and Xilence Interceptor Pro are the same.

Speaking of AvP, WTF is that anyways? Never heard of it. Neither in US, nor EU. Seems to be a small UK-based company. Can't even find their site lol.

All hideous. And then two of them have 1 front USB 3.0 port (lazy). The icing on the cake here is red highlights on the case with blue LED fans. Needless to say, I'll pass.
