Conclusion

A Saturated Marketplace

In general, the Aerocool Cyborg X is a decent casing with sufficient offerings and features to entice enthusiasts and gamers. Apart from its attempt to appear cool (some might think it’s trying too hard), it has everything we have come to expect from a decent gaming casing, such as adequate space for the latest hardware, decent ventilation options and a tool-free installation design. That's if you can look past the shoddy plastic used.

However, Aerocool is not the only player in this market. As evidenced in our recent budget casing shootout, there are many vendors out there who have the same ambitions of offering a fully featured gaming-grade chassis at wallet-friendly prices.

And therein lies the problem. Because while the Aerocool Cyborg X is certainly affordable at S$119, the unfortunate thing is that there are the less costly but equally capable casings around. Specifically, the slightly cheaper NZXT M-59, our winner for the budget casing shootout, still sets the benchmark in this price segment. And comparatively, the Cyborg X falls short. The NXZT M-59 just feels more polished overall.
