If you have never heard of NZXT, you don't know what great cases you are missing! We are taking a look at their Lexa case, which combines "Perfect Symmetry" with class and functionality. Let's check it out and see if we have a winner on our hands.

The inside HDD bay should prove enough for all of your hard disks. It has the capability of holding 5 3 1/4" hard drives, but they will be tightly packed together. This is not a real problem though, as there is another 120mm fan located directly behind...

Decent case, excellent support


I saw the 1 year warranty and put this on a credit card that added a year. Two years and two weeks after purchase, the top fan and front display failed. I emailed NZXT support expecting a purchase price for replacement parts - instead, they just sent...

Roomy, easy to work with, quiet, excellent support (see below). Air filter has kept the system significantly more free of dust than other systems in the same location ; Purchased based on other reviews, and still agree with them

Lights too bright. Front USB connector at bottom is inconvenient. Temperature sensors & front display of marginal use

Great box, better customer svc


Arrived with broken hinge pin on door. Email NZXT, couple days later, new door arrives complete with e-guts so I didn't have to mess with transferring lights/switches/etc. Didn't even have to return broken door! I about fell over in pleased shock. Door...

Excellent air flow, fan mount points, cable paths, drive mounts. Exceptional ground clearance ensures air flow should I ever want to place on carpeted floor. I have four systems on that shelf of wire rack - this case is the only one that I don't worry...

Rear fan a little flaky; noisy on startup. That is a one-off, though - luck of the draw pull from fan manufacturer. After a year, the fan still works with the exception of startup noise which clears in about five minutes (although writing this review...

Impressive deign, but cheaply made


Overall, an impressive looking case with a good design that is made very cheaply. Also, the blue LED lighting is VERY bright, especially the disk activity LED on the front, which can be annoying.

Cool looking, spacious, well designed, I like that both side panels come off easily, the fans are quiet, and the air filters keep the inside clean

Front panel audio and USB ports failed after a year, the case is very flimsy, super thin metal that bends if you look at it too hard, and this case takes up a lot of extra space due to the raised feet on the bottom and the extra extensions on the top...

I replaced all fans with higher CFM rate fans, this may just be me, with fans I want airflow the fans supplied are very low speed an push 15-34CFM mine supplys 80CFM on a fan controller an is as loud as stock fans. ^^ Any who hope this helps!

Amazing looking case, this case turns heads. The front has almost a clean mirror look. Vents on side an front intake a great amount of air

Umm alright, front light is extraordinarily bright, I have a dark room and its like a blue strobe light in my room reflecting off the mirror front. Front fan is hard to clean when it gets dusty. The temp. gauges on top are very inaccurate, off by...

Good Lookingm Hot Box


this is still a great looking case, it's look far outweighs its functionality though, if you go to a lot of lan parties you can count on quite a few second glances. my suggestion is to get the cheaper piano-black/red LED version w/o the temp...

As stated...a LOT, this case looks great. The side window looks and is trimmed very nice, my only complaint is the 120mm fan with its waaay too bright LEDs on the side panel, i just took mine off completely. The airflow in the case is good using...

flimsy aluminum on inside, poor cooling capability with higher-end components installed, 5.25 drive bays and quick clips can be a real pain if you're lacking coordination

Cheap Quality, Nice Looks


It looks cool, but is made cheaply. For the price, I certainly wouldn't buy it again. But I haven't bought a new one. I'm proud of how it looks, there's good cooling, and lots of room inside. It is just way too expensive to have so many small problems...

It has plenty of space to work inside, with room for all of the peripherals I need. Good airflow, good cooling, cool looks. Looks are important to you, or else you wouldn't be considering this case

The overall workmanship seems generally poor. The materials seem cheap and will break if pushed too hard. For example, the power switch on the bundled PSU stuck the first day. One of the front bezel's magnets fell off. The place where you put the...

Good Looking, AND User Friendly!!


I realize that I wrote a lot more in the "Cons" section, but I am actually very happy with my purchase. it's a good case, with a very user friendly design. oh, and for those wondering, don't get this just because it's aluminum: it won't help. aluminum...

Attractive features; user friendly design; No need to remove the back panel; HDD/ODD installation with sliding brackets; bezel opens on the left (it's sitting on the right side of my desk); temperature sensor built in to the case; above-average...

why not come with all screw replacements for the fans? why have the bezel open on the left, but place the ports on the right? the power button can sometimes get unplugged, which I solved by cutting a piece of masking tape and taping it in ; Aluminum is...

It looks great. Enough room for whatever you want. IT come with a temp display that help with overclocking a ton

Only cosmetics that are not good. Fingerprints get left on the case very easily. It has a bar on the back of the case: as you can see in the pictures, that has to be taken of to take off the side

Great case...few flaws


Other than that, this is still a great case and allows for good airflow. Plus the case is nice and light.

Great case, comes with good fans with good airflow. Side panel comes off nice and easy, and there is plenty of room to work with

the way the HDDs are installed on the case doesn't let a lot of airflow pass the hard they get hot! The LED lights inside are a bit much...this PC will light up my room at night and can be very annoying...but you can take those out. Also,...
