PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS AND FEATURES
From the spec list, Rosewill's Ranger seems to be a rather conventional case. It does, however, come with three included fans, USB 3.0 support and a side window and a few other surprises that we'll go into in more detail as we progress through this review.
Rosewill doesn't spend a lot of resources making the box pretty, and there aren't any specification or feature lists on the exterior. It's plain, serviceable and keeps unit costs down. If you're like me, box appeal isn't real high on my case requirements, and reviews like this one will let potential customers find out what's inside, anyway. Speaking of which, Rosewill uses the tried and true packing materials we see with the vast majority of cases we get here at the Tweaknews labs. It works great, as the case obviously had a rough trip, yet arrived in pristine condition.
Rosewill further protects the shiny bits of the front panel and the side window with an extra layer of plastic sheeting. Aside from the case, Rosewill provides drive rails for three 3.5-inch hardies, a motherboard speaker, a generous number of zip ties and the obligatory hardware bag with all the screws and standoffs required for hardware installation. The drive rails have a very interesting design in that the metal pins can be relocated to mount the drives in either direction in the cage, depending on the user's preference. They also feature silicone vibration dampeners to keep noise to a minimum. The included manual is printed on glossy stock and even novice builders should find everything they need here.
