PC Towers has become a market that everyone wants a part of, Ultra Products included. Competition is fierce, and new cases are being unveiled every day. Some cases are better than others, but one thing that is a given, is that they keep getting better, and better. Ultra is a great producer of modding products, including their popular X-Connect Power Supply. However, Towers is one area where they lack some inventory, but they are changing that.
As with all companies, they know that their case has to be different, but still practical, and have a definite selling point. At first glance, you will see that the Wizard is a modest looking case, and even ‘simple’. However, when you look deeper, you will see this thing is pretty packed.
Let’s first talk about the box that the case came in. It’s made of corrugated cardboard, which is definitely a nice choice made by Ultra. Ok, in seriousness, the box is loaded with details, and they haven’t missed anything. Reading the details made me just want to open it that much quicker!
After taking the case out, we see that is has a very clean looking design. Nothing overly fancy here, but what is here.. works well. It’s actually a great looking case.. made of steel and the paint job is very clean. It’s a navy blue color, which Ultra refers to as “MS Blue”.
