Unfortunately, it was a pretty slow week for reviews this week. Must be the weather? Either way, the two reviews we do have this week are focused on the Obsidian Series™ 700D full-tower case. If you've been salivating over the 800D, but were waiting for a cost-down alternative you might want to take a look.
Shane from Legit Reviews thought enough of the Obsidian Series 700D to give it their highest honor — the Editor's Choice award. Here's a bit of what he had to say:
"Corsair had done what it set out to do with the 700D for the Obsidian Series. They made a more affordable version of the 800D that will fill the gap for the users that wanted the 800D, but not the side window (yes some people prefer no window) and/or the hotswap features."
Tweak Town has reviewed the Obsidian Series 800D in the past, so they have an interesting take on the 700D.
"...the 700D offers all the room of its older brother, but there are changes afoot. Some really obvious, some less conspicuous, but all designed to offer the same quality and pleasurable experience of ownership as was brought to you with the 800D, just this time a little different way of looking at things."
That's all we have for reviews for this week, so I wanted to mention that we'll be making an appearance at PDXLAN in Portland, Oregon. PDXLAN is a 500 person LAN event and runs July 16-19. We'll be there the 17th and 18th. Come by, say hi, and compete in the system build-off competition that we're sponsoring. We're giving away all the components necessary to build your very own Corsair Dream PC!
