MGE XG Dragon: Overpriced But Pretty

Nobel physiognomy

Elegant and crazed are two words you could use to describe the XG Dragon. Elegant, because it's a very attractive gaming case. Crazed, because of the price the vendor puts on this aluminium housing. To take this baby home, you'll need to pay upwards of £120 - if you can talk yourself into spending that much. But those who pony up the necessary cash will acquire a nicely-designed midi-tower enclosure.

The practical carrying handle makes it easy to carry this unit to your next LAN party. But you should be careful when moving the case around. Our test sample didn't fare so well as it was transported from the vendor's location to our doorstep. The good-looking front panel cover, which features a dragon cut-out lit from behind, didn't survive its long journey undamaged. Several of the anchors that hold the front of the panel cover to the rear broke off, and in turn led to partial failures in the backlighting elements. If you wiggled the pieces, they would eventually illuminate, but that was only temporary thanks to the heavy weight of the door itself. A little higher quality in materials and workmanship would not have done the XG Dragon any harm.
