2003 Winter Case Review Part 2: The ATX Avalanche

BeanTech Igloo Series: IGLOO 12

Another newcomer to our THG case reviews is BeanTech, who was inspired to contact us after seeing our last case review. BeanTech cases have wider availability outside the North American market, as they have not yet started to attack the North American market yet. While BeanTech employs a design and development team, their primary focus is marketing and distribution leveraging a variety of production options for their cases.
