NZXT Phantom 240 Mid-tower Case Review

NZXT Phantom 240 System Assembled

As creative and as revolutionary as NZXT’s cases may have been, they have all been surprisingly affordable especially compared to other feature-rich cases. The original Phantom case introduced back in 2010 for instance, only had a retail price of $139.99. Keeping the price low while limiting the compromise in quality and feature-set seem to have driven NZXT’s decisions since then leading up to the latest addition to their Phantom series: the 240, a $69.99 mid-tower case and the most affordable Phantom case yet.

The NZXT Phantom 240’s $69.99 price tag offers the signature curved Phantom styling in a glossy white body while also keeping the essential feature-set that made NZXT popular among enthusiasts. As expected from a budget case, the box itself is not too fancy with the typical brown packaging and black print. The foam padding inside cushions the Phantom 240’s top and bottom as it is mounted with the front door facing upward out of the box.

NZXT Phantom 240 Packaging

Aside from the standard foam padding and large plastic cover, the glossy plastic top and front bezel is wrapped to protect from scratches during transport. A tape seals the door in place to prevent damage as well. Most importantly, the side-window has double film cover (inside and outside) since acrylic tends to get scratches from the wires when moved around so this is very thoughtful of NZXT to have all the bases covered to make sure the Phantom 240 comes out of the box stageroom ready.

NZXT Phantom 240 Packaging

Surprisingly, the accessories are clearly labeled and each are contained in their own mini-package. Most manufacturers would simply throw it all in one package and leave the user to sort it out themselves so this is a thoughtful effort in NZXT’s part. The manual is a fold-out illustrated and multilingual guide that is easy to follow and very detailed, showing users which screw can be used for specific uses and shows extra options. The accessory kit also generously provides extra fan mounting screws so that additional fans can be installed right out of the box.
