January 10th, 2012 - Day 1 - NZXT

NZXT

Unfortunate flight delays held Richard “Oh_Fubar” King stuck in the Atlanta International Airport so the first day of CES 2012 began with the rest of our ground crew making the rounds inside manufacturer’s suites and foregoing the showroom floor until the next day. Since we have seven meetings scheduled for this day, we decided to skip breakfast and just grabbed coffee on the go instead. What would otherwise be a simple endeavor took a lot longer than it should have as a simple inquiry about where to get coffee in Vegas was met with a vague “it’s just right there” or “it is close” which of course meant two city blocks away. Lesson learned: Las Vegas residents have no concept of distance. What do you call a Las Vegas resident anyway? Vegasite? Vegasian? Vegan?

Anyway, with drink in tow we headed for NZXT’s suite at the Palazzo to check out some of their latest offerings. While we saw some exciting product prototypes in the NDA room that we cannot disclose, the main showcase displayed in the main suite was just as, if not more, impressive: the new NZXT Switch 810 case. A standard white version as well as a Bladerunner inspired mod by MNPCTech’s Bill Owen of the Switch 810 grabbed…nay, demanded everyone’s attention. If you loved NZXT’s Phantom, you will surely fall in love with this, just as our own Vincent “Vinman” Petronio did when he saw the Switch 810. 

 

 

Towards the front of the suite was the familiar NZXT Phantom case albeit in a mid-tower form. Dubbed the Phantom 410, this case carried many of the functional convenience offered in the original Phantom case and improves upon some of its shortcomings. Just like the full-tower Phantom, the Phantom 410 will be available in a variety of color combinations.
