A few months ago, we decided to take a few clear acrylic cases and compare their features, constructions, and general usability in our acrylic roundup. The four competing products were from BeanTech, Sunbeam Technologies, ClearPC, and Logisys.
In the roundup, we explained the various differences in case construction and design, the pros and cons of the acrylic material, and the variations of assemblies in the four cases. It was evident that none could compete with the metal cases in the industry, but in the end, between the four, BeanTech's BT-85 came out on top. It had a solid design with a removable motherboard tray, sturdy construction, and an overall great performance in thermal and sound.
Recently, Logisys introduced us to another model in their acrylic family of cases, the CS888UV. There are a few differences in the UV models from their CL model; mainly, the UV reflective material. We will go in to more detail to explain the features that the CS888UV has, which the CL doesn't and vice versa.
More information is available on the CS888CL at Logisys' website.
