DimasTech EasyXL Test Bench Review

Article Index:

DimasTech EasyXL Test Bench BlueAs a hardware reviewer and a hardware junkie, I constantly swap parts in and out of the various PCs I have around the office. I’m constantly swapping this for that etc. Traditional PC cases make it very difficult and time consuming to swap parts. Over the years there have been various styles of open air test benches. I remember my 1st test bench; it was essentially a metal frame with two pieces of Lexan for the motherboard and accessories, needless to say it didn’t work out all that well. But times have changed. More and more metal heavy duty testbenches are available on the market. DimasTech specializes in test benches. If you live in the U.S. you may not have heard of DimasTech, but hold on, they have recently secured distribution in the U.S. DimasTech has a multitude of test benches available in all sizes and accessories to support each one. The DimasTech EasyXL test bench is the largest test bench they produce and we have it on the table for review.
