This review is from: NZXT Phantom PHAN-001BK Black Steel / Plastic Enthusiast ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: Plenty of space and looks great.

Cons: Easy to scratch, and I've had this less than a year and the LED light over the top fan has already stopped working.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, NZXT Valued Customer

We do appreciate the feed-back regarding the original phantom case, the cases surface is made out of abs plastic which has a glossy coating to it. Also in regards to the LED light failing to blink or emit any light at all we would be able to assist with a parts replacement for you. All you would need to do is visit us at support.nzxt.com and at the top right you would simply submit a request with your invoice attached. You can also contact us directly if you have any issues with filling out the request form at 1-800-228-9395.
Kind regards,
NZXT Support.

5 out of 5 eggsMinor issue but NZXT is resolving it

This review is from: NZXT Phantom PHAN-001BK Black Steel / Plastic Enthusiast ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: As someone who is slow to upgrade non-essential things I had my previous mid-tower case for at least 7 years. I finally decided it was time to get a full tower that easily worked with todays bigger and bigger GPUs and aftermarket CPU heatsinks and bought this.

It's spacious and designed well with the airflow as well as the cases ability to route cables to keep it clear of clutter.

Cons: My case came with a bad wire for my panel fans so they were intermittently cutting out. After 2 days of chatting with NZXT they are sending me replacement parts so it will be fixed soon. Otherwise an awesome purchase.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Case

This review is from: NZXT Phantom PHAN-001BK Black Steel / Plastic Enthusiast ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: Sleek look fans are quiet clean sleek design

Cons: Cooling fan doesn't fit hard drives must be turned backwards so to access you must remove both side panels very irritating. No real way to install card reader only 2 USB ports on top wouldn't buy another

5 out of 5 eggsPhantom review

This review is from: NZXT Phantom PHAN-001BK Black Steel / Plastic Enthusiast ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: not a bad case, good amount of room, great airflow, looks nice, I recommend this case to anyone looking for a full tower upgrade. i love the horizontal hard drive mounts. makes it easy to manage HHd's. built in fan controller is a plus.

Cons: the only con i would say is the low qaulity molex male connector that is built in to the case (power supply for the built in fan controller). the prongs were all messed up and it took forever to get it plugged in, other than that all is good.

Other Thoughts: price is reasonable, but manufacturer needs to put a better connecter in.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent, bur not perfect

This review is from: NZXT Phantom PHAN-001BK Black Steel / Plastic Enthusiast ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: Quite a few fans, lots of work space inside, can hold quite a few drives. Comes with a large selection of screw

Cons: In order to fit hard drives in the bays the double fans need to be removed (one can fit in the front of the case, the other second can stay unless you are mounting 6 hard drives). The fan controls don't really work, but isn't a deal breaker (works fine when set to max).

Other Thoughts: more space between hard drive caddy and fans, or lower profile fans would make a good revision, but otherwise an all around solid case

5 out of 5 eggsNZXT Phantom

This review is from: NZXT Phantom PHAN-001BK Black Steel / Plastic Enthusiast ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: 1.Case fans on max are very quiet just a mild hum comes from them.
2. Plenty of room for water cooling and everything else you want to cram in it.
3. Hard drive bays are easily taking out and slide right back in plus it is set up to help reduce vibrations which is always nice.
4. Plenty of places to tie all of your cables and wires to keep them from flopping around and for better appearance.
5. Very sturdy case I am not worried about it falling apart or crushing or even getting dented very easily.
6. It comes with just about all the screws you could use in the case plus a water cooling bracket, stand offs, and some zip ties for cable management.
7. The front panel door is pretty solid and padded to help with noise reduction, which makes me happy to have a solid door instead of a flimsy one.

Cons: This is a minor one but it was a little difficult closing the back side up after I was done with the cable management due to space that is available between the tray and the panel but with a little adjustment and a little push I was able to get it all to work out.

Other Thoughts: I love this case. One of the best cases I have owned and I have owned a lot. It has a unique design and is pretty rugged. I love that they set it up to help with noise and air flow, which in my opinion they did a pretty dang good job at it. I would definitely recommend this to everyone and their mothers.

4 out of 5 eggsvery decent case with some minor issues

This review is from: NZXT Phantom PHAN-001BK Black Steel / Plastic Enthusiast ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: This is a huge case that is at a decent price and holds many components. It can hold a crazy amount of hard drives, the airflow is amazing, it has room for a ton of fans, it can hold many dvd drives, it has many expansion card slots. Wire management is very nice with this case and it has many holes to support whatever type of liquid cooling you want to do.

Cons: Since this is a Extended ATX case it would be nice for them to include more slots for expansion cards in the back. Many of us who get this have extended atx gaming rigs and want to even do QUAD sli/crossfire and there simply aren't enough slots in the back depending on the configuration. Also the NZXT fans are VERY cheap. I would highly recommend replacing them since most of them will die a few months after getting them. Personally I got an extra large top case fan so both fan slots were used and both of the large top case fans either started making noises after a few months or they just stopped working. Moreover the fan controler on the top of the system is not amazing quality it looks cool but its prone to breaking. IDK if it was just a issue with my case but the front audio ports were garbage. You can hear the interference in the cheap front audio cables and the front usb headers are also cheap but hey at least they work. I resolved this problem by completely not using front panel anything but USB on this case. Also the 2 120mm fans on the door of the case are a pain in the buttocks. Every time you go to open the case there is no room to get the door off since the fans are attached and when you go to put the case back on its a pain to connect the fans while attaching the door on a angle since they didn't include enough cable with their fans. Furthermore if you use a large cpu cooler or liquid cooling block there is no room for the giant side fan and this was a problem I ran into. uhmmm also the screws they use for the side panels (both side panels come off) are very cheap and strip easy. With under 100 times of taking the side door off they are likely to not work as well anymore and even when hand tightening they are kind of loose and won't fully tighten. Also the tool less drive bays don't work very well and don't secure the drives very well. The drives have a very hard time fitting the in adapter bracket and its easy to completely break the adapters by just putting moderate force on them. Furthermore since the case is so big many wires are not long enough to reach either from the mobo to hdds or from psu to drive bays or what not and this is a constant concern when adding components especially if you want to keep the wires hidden. Personally I think many of these issues are minor and easy to fix. If they put a few more dollars into making this they could use higher quality screws, higher quality audio cable, higher quality fan controler with better molex attachments that don't bend and as long as when you add fans you stay clear of NZXT branded ones you should be fine and it would even be cheaper for them to use a tool design for the hard drives. (really if you're making a computer why wouldn't you at least have a basic philips screwdriver?)

Other Thoughts: There are several older versions that came with only usb 2.0 like I have and a newer version with mostly only front panel usb 3.0. It would be nice if the case came with a internal header adapter for people that don't have USB 3.0 since many people still do not and its very unprofessional to just have 2+ non working usb ports on the front of a custom built computer. Overall despite the flaws this case has it is very nice and much higher quality than a lot of other cases on here. I have had this case for almost 5 years now so I think I should know all the issues with it... This seriously may be one of the best cases ever for this price point but I would consider Lian-li if you have the money to spend.
