Fractal Design Meshify 2 Lite RGB Case Review

Meshify 2 Lite RGB

A Closer Look at Fractal Meshify 2 Lite »

Meshify 2 Lite RGBFinding a case on the budget isn’t tough nowadays. In today’s market, there is no shortage of cases or accessories. But in the sea of case manufacturers, it’s easy to get lost. I personally tend to lean towards brands that are famous for their work and craftsmanship when it comes to cases such as Fractal, Cooler Master, BeQuiet, etc. Fractal has an amazing lineup of cases that they offer. What captivates most computer enthusiasts when looking for new cases is the complexity, style, and craftsmanship of the case. Just recently announced Fractal is adding a new variant to their award-winning Meshify 2 family, Meshify 2 Lite ATX Case. The Meshify 2 Lite offers similar features to the Meshify 2 but at an affordable price. It is true that Meshify 2 Lite loses some features but it still has a lot to offer at a price most can afford.

The Meshify 2 Lite gets shipped in a cardboard box like most of the cases we see. The cardboard box is recycle-friendly and relatively cheap to produce. This gives manufacturers the opportunity to pass on the saving to consumers. On both sides of the case, there are detailed images of the Meshify 2 Lite and some of the features the case offers.

The internal packaging of the Meshify 2 Lite is very similar to other cases as well. The case is wrapped in a plastic protective bag and supported by white plastic foam cutouts. Fractal has also included cling plastic wrap on the glass panel. Included with the case are a small User Guide and a small accessory box with zip-ties and screws for you to use when assembling your case.
