“Judge a company's potential to make more expensive cases by the value they provide in low-cost cases…”- A very good and well-respected reviewer gave me this advice before I started reviewing cases.Bitfenix sent me one of their...

BitFenix have taken the market by storm over the previous 18 months and after a somewhat rocky launch period, we have seen their quality control and construction materials consistently improve. Today we look at their Merc Alpha Chassis, which is...

The rear of the Merc Alpha provides the already mentioned seven expansion slots, the rear cooling fan, two holes for water cooling, and a bottom mounted ATX power supply cutout. The rear fan cutout can accommodate 80mm, 92mm, and 120mm fans. The two...

The quality of the case is very decent and gives you lots of options. For the price of $39.00 for the Merc Alpha from the BetFenix store…. it's a steal! You really can't go wrong with this budget case. There is lots of room for case fans,...

With so many successful PC Cases already the only question that remains is whether or not the people over at BitFenix have yet another winner in their hands with the Merc Alpha and the answer is yes, for the most part that is. The Merc Alpha...

Overall, the Bitfenix Merc Alpha is, well, optional. For a mid-tower at a very affordable price, it has several very good features, offset by only a couple of drawbacks. The wire management solution used by Bitfenix is top notch. The ease of...

If you have ever gone looking for a used car, typically, you don't go around looking for the cheapest car possible. However, if you are strapped for cash and need something quick and dirty, any car is usually better than no car. Of course, when I...

The Bitfenix Alpha Merc is an impressive case for its price. Compared to more expensive models, lots of features are missing, as you would expect, but compared to offerings in the same price range, the Alpha Merc simply blows the competition...

While we've had a chance to check out a few cases in the $200+ club and the majority of the enclosures we've tested have floated around the $99 price range, we haven't really put the screws (so to speak) to a truly budget case. That changes...

So the Merc then, when I first saw it was going to be available from around £35 I have to admit I was worried this was going to be a properly basic case. Surprisingly though we have reviewed cases costing £40 - £50 that were not as good...

gar nicht so leicht. Obwohl die Gehäuse viele Gemeinsamkeiten aufwiesen - beispielsweise war in jedem Modell eine einigermaßen ordentliche Kabelverlegung sowie ein unkompliziertes Wechseln des CPU-Kühlers durch einen entsprechenden...

Nach dem ersten Blick auf das Merc Gehäuse, bei dem natürlich Kunststoff und Blech dominieren, sollte man sich nicht zu schnell ein Urteil bilden, denn gerade in der unteren Preisklasse spielen auch die Inneren Werte einen entscheidende Rolle....

International Review By CaseUmbau on -

BitFenix hat mit dem Merc ein sehr günstiges Geh?use auf den Markt gebracht, welches sich mit seinen 32,90 Euro (11/2011) sehr weit unten auf der Preisskala befindet. Somit sollte man auch nicht all zuviel vom Merc erwarten, da jedes Feature Geld...

International Review By Clube do Hardware on -

O Bitfenix Alpha Merc é um gabinete impressionante para a sua faixa de preço. Comparado com modelos mais caros, faltam muitos recursos, é verdade, mas quando comparado com produtos na mesma faixa de preço, o Alpha Merc deixa a...

BitFenix nos ha presentado una caja muy sencilla (que no simple) que cumple sin duda con su cometido, es decir, proteger las entrañas de nuestro ordenador. De hecho, es parecida a cajas genéricas que podemos encontrar por un precio irrisorio,...

International Review By Hardware.no on -

BitFenix selv mener at Merc i enten Alpha eller Beta-utgaven kan tilby et stilig, kjølig og utvidbart kabinett med mange tilkoblingsmuligheter for en liten penge. Vi synes derimot at dette er kabinett som hverken ser spesielt stilig ut, kan tilby...

International Review By Hardware.Info on -

Bitfenix laat met de Merc Alpha zien dat een degelijke behuizing helemaal niet duur hoeft te zijn. Goed, je mist zaken als usb 3.0- of eSATA-aansluitingen, rubberen afwerking van waterkoeling- en kabelmanagementopeningen en er is maar één fan...

Vi er nu nået til konklusionen på BitFenix MERC Alpha kabinettet. Allerede ved modtagelse var vi overrasket over hvor let Alpha var. Vi kom næsten i tvivl om, om der overhovedet var noget i kassen. Men det viste sig at Alpha virkelig bare...

International Review By Hardwareluxx on -

Das BitFenix Merc wirkt etwas wie der langweiligere Bruder vom Outlaw: der Innenaufbau folgt dem altgewohnten Muster. Darüber hinaus wurden noch einige kleinere Abstriche gemacht, um beide Modelle etwas voneinander zu separieren. So fehlen dem Merc...
