We’d like to see the use of lower profile case screws to reduce external visibility. We’ve included an example with the right side screw (LP) vs left (original) in the image above.
The top panel (side panel I’m vertical orientation) uses five screws to secure. This means the side panel cannot be flipped and cannot use either side as the interior or exterior. This additional screws also feels unnecessary and out of place.
The case design causes the HDMI display connector to be pushed up against the case when using the bottom port on the GPU. We recommend not using the bottom display connector on your graphic card with the LZX-8.
The LZX-8 is a unique case and different from majority of SFF cases available. The matte panels are thick, high quality, and fingerprint resistant.
|Size (8.6L)||Vandal switch cables extremely long for case size and multicoloured (this is been addressed by Lazer3D for future cases)|
|Easy to assemble and build in||Case screws have high profile heads making them more noticable on exterior|
|Case personalisation available||Top panel uses five screws when four is sufficient|
|Strong, sturdy paneling|
|Case can be stood vertical or horizontal|
|Stylish & unique appearance|
|Modular front I/O cables|
|Strong cooling performance|
