Rosewill Ranger Case Review: Page 4 of 4

At this price there really isn’t much in the way of competition. For this reason I would put it at the top of the list for cases in this price range. There aren’t a whole lot of features, but the features that are included are ones that most users would want. By B. Ramirez

Ranger Conclusion

This case does come with quite a few features for its price range. This is where Rosewill have been able to compete against some of the manufacturers. There are those that feel that the case is actually one of the least important components of their system. This depends on what you plan on doing with your system and whether or not you plan on showing it off. If you’re going to mod it anyway then it really isn’t going to matter too much what it looks like. What you need to keep in mind though is that your case is going to house your system for a while and therefore it should at least be fairly sturdy.

This case does feel a little on the flimsy side, but not so much though that it would fall apart if you planned to take it to a LAN party. The parts of this case that feel flimsy are really just the front panel and the side panels. These aren’t the parts of the case that really matter because they aren’t the ones that hold any hardware. This case actually has a very sturdy interior that should hold up to any traveling that you plan on doing with it. It’s always been my suggestion that if you plan on transporting the case for any long distances that you put it back in the original box. With the foam packaging that the original box comes with and the sturdiness of the box itself, this should help to shield your system for being knocked around or jostled in a moving vehicle.

Let me wrap this up by saying that for the price of this case you really can’t go wrong. It has a really nice paint job and the red interior looks amazing. It isn’t going to appeal to everyone, but most users will really enjoy how nice this case actually is for the money. At this price there really isn’t much in the way of competition. For this reason I would put it at the top of the list for cases in this price range. There aren’t a whole lot of features, but the features that are included are ones that most users would want. It would have been nice if Rosewill had included more dust filters, but these would probably have added significantly to the cost. At the front the entire front panel is dust filtered. It isn’t the best type of filtering, but it should keep the intake fan from sucking in most of the dust that winds up in the case. For the price and the included features this case deserves the Editor’s Choice Award here at Motherboards.Org.
