The NZXT Beta is certainly one of the most affordable brand name cases out there. With a price tag of just under 50 US Dollars/Euros, you cannot expect much innovation. The main selling points of the case are the black interior paint job and the well designed front. You will only get a single fan and a simple, but effective interior layout within the case. The case does have a few short comings which are to be expected, but the 40-60 US Dollar market for cases is more than crowded. You have to ask yourself if you do not want to scrape together a few bucks more to grab yourself a case with a second fan and a few additional features instead. But before you may think that the case is not worth every penny, let me tell you: the NZXT Beta is a great chassis for the price point and brings one or two nice features to the price class - perfect for first time builders or those wanting to avoid that ugly OEM case for just a few bucks more.
