IntroductionI would like to thank Houri at Akasa Europe for supplying the review sample.
The Akasa Group of companies was founded in 1997 with offices in Taipei and London. The brand Akasa was launched in 2000. Akasa have been at the forefront of the Custom PC revolution, with the introduction of Extreme Coolers, for the overclocking fraternity, quickly followed by aerodynamic round cables and PAXmate sound absorption kits. These Akasa PC products are retailed through the leading on-street companies, they can also be found at the major e-retailers.
Akasa now has outlets in Asia Pacific, Middle East, Northern & Southern Europe, USA and South America. They have a production facility in China and OEM many products for leading brands.
Today we get to take a look at their newest ATX case - the Mirage-62.

The packaging has the slogan "Coolest Case Ever" printed across the entire front side. This is completely different and gets the potential buyers' attention. The back has the case in all its parts as well as its features in English written on it. This makes for a very clean and still catchy packaging.
Once the sturdy cardboard box was opened, the top of the case was seen. This is different as well, as most manufactures tend to place the case with the front toward the top. Akasa went with some foam spacers which have the advantage of surviving more than just one fall, unlike Styrofoam.
