Impression - IM-21

The Impression IM-21 had a lot of the features that we have found in other cases.

The Impression IM-21 is a new entry from a company that we had not previously reviewed. The IM-21 is a mid-tower design that offers a variety of features in a compact package.

Perhaps the most unique thing about the IM-21 is the thick, polished, scratch-resistant coating on the outside surfaces of the case. At first we didn't really know what to make of it, but upon additional investigation it proved to offer scratch-resistance and durability beyond what we found in most other cases. It provides additional protection from scratches, which is something that LAN partygoers will like.

A look at the inside of the IM-21.

The case has an acrylic covering that covers its entire front. This protects the front of the case and offers a unique look that is not found in other cases. However, unlike the sides and top of the case that offer the thick, polished, scratch-resistant coating, the acrylic front can be subject to scratches, as we found during our look at the case.
