NZXT Switch 810 Computer Case Review
While a product's success is ultimately determined by the product itself, it all starts off with one thing: The name. As I have discussed in my Kingston DataTraveler HyperX 3.0 64GB review last year, what a product is called already leaves a strong first impression. Being a person in electrical engineering living in the province of Alberta, the word "switch" can really be quite meaningful at this time of the year. For one thing, we are having an election in a few days, and unless something significant happens between now and April 23rd, the Wildrose Party is expected to unseat the Progressive Conservatives -- effectively eliminating its massive forty-one year reign in this province -- forming a new government. Secondly, with final exams rolling up the semester this week (Yes, I really should be studying right now), it is important to keep in mind that, at least for the digital electronics circuit class, transistors are essentially switches on a conceptual level. So whether we are thinking about switching out the government or using what are basically switches to crunch some ones and zeros, where does the NZXT Switch 810 fall into place? Is the not-so-hidden-message of "switch to this chassis to house all your expensive combinations of billions of switches" the right thing to do?
