Conclusion:

 

The Azza Toledo I found to be a awesome case. When they said that they wanted a budget case for gamers they meant it, with the copious amounts of bay space, giant cooling fans and the nice cable management they are certainly giving you your monies worth. There was also a lot of space so you can fit pretty much any sized card in, like the Radeon HD 5970. What about the exterior design in terms of aesthetics? Well I know beauty is in the eye of the beholder so I can only say that I for one like it but I also think that most people would say the same. Instead of the traditional smooth panels the top and front of the chassis have these groove patterns that might have other wise just been a curve. Then on the side is a giant 250mm fan that you can point to and laugh maniacally about. If I was to say any bad about this case it would only be that there was no USB 3.0 included but that could be easily overlooked by its other great features and the fact that it is only 69.99!

Would I recommend this product, absolutely! This is one great case for gamers on a budget and I would definitely say so to my gamers friends.


Pros:

  • Plenty of drive bays
  • low price
  • able to fit large graphics cards
  • good cooling features
  • cable management
  • nice looking exterior

Cons:

  •  No USB 3.0
