We would like to thank Thermaltake for supplying the review sample of the Luxa2 LM200.
LUXA2, a Division of Thermaltake, was created in 2009, with characteristics of simplicity, luxury, and unique lifestyle. The core design theory of LUXA2 starts from simple shapes blending with luxury elements, which create the unique lifestyle for different segments within the society such as Creative Pro, Mobile Blogger, Leisure Seeker, Hip Newbie, Entertainment Junkie, and Apple's Mac Lovers.Before the explosion of PC computing there was a time when home audio and video components were proudly displayed in one's living area as something to show off to neighbors and friends. As time went on, these things became more and more integrated into PCs and portable media devices and became more of an individual, almost private thing for some. We have reviewed the LM300 Touch Pro and the LM100 Mini recently, now Thermaltake was kind enough to send us the LM200, which can hold a mATX board along with a full size expansion cards.
LUXA2 represents an emerging trend of "individuality" in the world. Not only do people need function, but they also need aesthetic appeal. This is what LUXA2 has achieved. Exquisite craftsmanship with aesthetic and elegant design style is a promise and commitment from LUXA2. Thus, the Simplicity, Luxury and Lifestyle of LUXA2 creates a Uniquely You.
The LM200 is available with a VFD (LM200) or LCD (LM200 Touch).
