Chieftec Extreme Series BX-01B-SL-B
The Chieftec BX-01B-SL-B is a member of Chieftec's new Extreme Series cases.
Chieftec sent us the BX-01B-SL-B, a case from its new Extreme Series, which marks Chieftec's effort to expand its lineup of cases, along with a new focus on quality and features for this stalwart case company. Chieftec continues to expand its presence worldwide. The Extreme Series is a departure from the typical Chieftec case; Chieftec wants to show off its new design prowess and high quality construction. What is interesting to note is that most of these fresh, new changes take place on the little things where Chieftec was previously behind the curve; while, at the same time, Chieftec has managed to keep the traditional Chieftec internal configuration that buyers have grown accustomed to. While it is obvious that this new case contains a variety of innovative ideas, let's look closer and see if these interesting features make the Extreme Series the new "flagship" line for Chieftec buyers.
