Today we are going to take a look at the latest case from Cougar, the MX500. This particular model has been designed for those users looking for a well featured case that is still affordable. We look forward to examining the extent to which this is true and if it truly represents good value for money.
Cougar specifically target their range of products towards gamers, particularly those who are operating with limited budgets. We have looked at a number of Cougar cases in the past and have been generally impressed with the features they offer for the money.
The last case we looked at from Cougar was the Challenger which we reviewed over here. We scored this down for the lack of cable management offers and the rather unusual design. It will be interesting to see if Cougar have improved these aspects with the MX500.
