Rosewill Galaxy-03 ATX Mid Tower Case Introduction
Rosewill makes a plethora of products, including but not limited to: networking equipment, PC peripherals, computer cases, and even binoculars. They’ve been known to make a well functioning low cost alternative to the big boys, while also providing higher end products, which keeps them in the eyes of many. I personally have purchased a few products from them over the years and I think that they’re all great. Today we’re going to take a look at Rosewill’s Galaxy-03 case, which is a mid tower budget minded case. So if you’re looking to build yourself a new computer on a budget for the holidays, or even looking to gift a case for that great friend who is on a limited budget for his/her new gaming PC, you will definitely want to read on and see how this case fairs!
Rosewill’s Galaxy-03 is a sleek mid tower chassis that is painted a flat black throughout. To make things not look boring on the outside, this case provides several color accents and designs in attempt to help make it look a bit more aggressive. One other aspect that Rosewill touched on was the weight. You’ll find that this case weighs in only a little more than 10 lbs, which absolutely makes moving this case around a breeze.
The whole idea of a mid tower chassis is to keep things tight and this case is no exception. The interior does feel like it has a lot of room to work with; this is exactly what Rosewill aimed for. Inside you’ll find plenty of wire pass-thru holes, seven expansion slots, three 5.25 inch bays, room for four 3.5 inch hard drives, and even a place to mount a 2.5 inch solid state drive. We can’t forget about the fans; Rosewill includes one blue LED 120mm intake fan on the front and two 120mm exhaust fans on the rear/top.

Does the cost of this case make it feel too cheap, or does it provide a ton of value for the money? With all of the aforementioned features that this case is offering, it feels like a good value so far, but we’ll still have to take a look and see if it functions well and isn’t cheap feeling.
