BitFenix Merc Alpha

Computing on Demand
12 December 2011
  • Excerpt: Generally, many case makers like to feature top notch, expensive high-end cases and seem to forget about the majority of people; those of us with a budget! The market is flooded with cheaply made, low-cost cases that many just settle on purchasing because they can’t afford cases by Lian Li, Silverstone, Zalman, or any of the other top end brand names. Recently, BitFenix has been making some waves by producing their Colossus with the soft touch element.

[Review] Bitfenix Merc Alpha

TechREACTION
29 November 2011
  • Conclusion: 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 installation with mostly tool free design was another good thing which we really liked about the Alpha. The very basic design could either be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on your taste.

  • Excerpt: When I think of a Mercenary, I get the mental image of a no frills guy, backed with experiences we can only imagine and will sell his skill set to anyone who has enough cash to foot the bill. Typically, if you are in the market to make a hit on someone, or have your enemy rubbed out, your pockets are pretty deep already, so the fact that the Mercenary tends to shop himself out to the highest bidder is just the cost of "business" to them.

Bitfenix Merc Alpha Case Review

Hardware Secrets
25 October 2011
  • Summary: 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 away.

BitFenix Merc Alpha Review

18 October 2010
  • Excerpt: BitFenix feel like they have been around forever, but who would have thought it was just a year ago that we got our hands on the first case to come from them, the Colossus. Since then they have brought out a whole range of cases and most recently announced their first budget case, the Merc.

  • Conclusion: BitFenix Merc Alpha - Fazit Fazit 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 kostet. Dennoch hat das Merc einen schwarzen Innenraum und massig Platz für Festplatten. Ebenso positiv ist das Angebot an Lüftergittern, welches es dem Nutzer erm?glicht eine Geh?
  • Pros: - Optik, - viel Platz für Lüfter, - Innenraumlakierung, - Kabelmanagement
  • Cons: - Slotblenden zum herausbrechen, - keine Staubfilter, - Front lässt sich schwer entfernen

Test: Merc Alpha - das Low-Budget-Modell von BitFenix

Hardwareluxx
14 October 2011
  • Summary: 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 sowohl die gummierten Auflagepunkte für das Netzteil als auch die gummierten Durchführungen für die Festplattenmontage. Auf die SofTouch-Front muss ebenfalls verzichtet werden.

  • Summary: 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 et kabinett som hverken ser spesielt stilig ut, kan tilby gode temperaturer eller med sine fire USB 2.0 porter har en god variasjon av tilkoblinger. La oss heller kalle en spade for en spade, Merc er et billig kabinett.
