Raidmax is known all over the world for providing truly well designed cases which are affordable for the average consumer. According to them, you can simply spend a little but you receive higher quality than what you expect. But does the same saying apply to the Raidmax Blackstorm Mid-Tower Gaming case?

About Raidmax:

Raidmax was founded in 1988 with the mission of providing the best solutions: specifically, meeting your requirements for innovative designs, excellent performance and quality products.
In early 2003, Raidmax was the first to debut the design “Scorpio”: an alien eye shape on its general front panel. At the time, it was the best ever hit in the gaming case business and almost every factory had owned at least one similar design back in China. Two years later, Raidmax released another cutting-edge design, Samurai, and people who had seen the case itself instantly fell in love.
After numerous global feedback, Raidmax is known all over the world. It is said our company is not only a case designer but also the perfect budget keeper. You can simply spend a little but you receive higher quality than you expect.

It has been more than 10 years since Raidmax began its work on its unique product lines and market position. The name of Raidmax is synonymous to gaming design and budget cases. In the United States, Raidmax is considered to be the best second tier brand; in Asia, it is said that only Raidmax can offer the budget cases with great designs; in Europe, with almost no brand management, Raidmax’ followers are still showing their loyal support in many ways.

The Blackstorm comes in a black box with some specifications and features about the case printed on the left and right side of the box. The front and back of the box display the Blackstorm case itself with showing off the stylized design and the top mounted I/O ports which consist of 2 USB 2.0 ports, 1 e-SATA port, and 2 Audio ports for microphone and headphone. Unfortunately there is a lack of USB 3.0. Inside the box we find the case itself well protected in a plastic bag and secured with polystyrene.
