The quality of the Raven/Fortress series have been getting progressively worse in an attempt to make the cases more affordable. Not working very well IMO, even at the RV03's $139 MSRP.

having an rv02-e myself i see this as a backwards step in both looks and design.
its almost as if they decided that we will make as many incoming fans as we can and only have one exit and maybe the cooling will be as good as previous designs.

Design is a downgrade...looks like transformers toy about to make a transition. No aluminum?

Same innovative design as the RV02 and the FT02 with minor tweaks. Aside from the design, this is a good mid tower utilizing a unique hardware management but it's still too pricey for what it offers.

just when you thought they couldn't make an uglier version....


RV01 = "OMG IT LOOKS LIKE A PROP FROM BATMAN!"
RV02 = "wow, improved airflow, and still looks cool"
RV03 = "what were they thinking when they put those white accents in!"
