Corsair has finally made the move into Mini ITX with the Obsidian Series 250D, unveiled last week at CES 2014. The small-form-factor chassis is Corsair’s smallest to date and is making its way to retail stores priced at $89.99 in the States and £71.99 in the UK.
That’s roughly on par with the rival BitFenix Prodigy and less than half the price of the EVGA Hadron Air (which, remember, includes a PSU as standard). Corsair is playing catch-up in this area of the market, but having developed a reputation for producing quality cases, the 250D is well-positioned as the US manufacturer’s small-form-factor debut.
Sounds mighty promising for anyone planning to downsize to Mini ITX, but when we met the Obsidian Series 250D in person, our initial impression was somewhat unexpected: for a small-form-factor chassis, this isn’t actually that small.
