Aerocool VS-9 Performance Gaming System Case

Today we are looking at the VS-9 case from Aerocool.  The VS-9 is part of Aerocool's Performance Gaming System (PGS) line of cases.  PGS lets you choose your case based on 5 categories, Compact, Ultimate gaming, Aluminum, Professional and Value.  The VS-9 falls into the Value category.  We've all heard the old saying, "You get what you pay for."  Let's take a look at the VS-9 and see what kind of quality and features Aerocool can pack in a value case.

 

 

The above chart shows the various categories of the PGS.  The value series promises highest cost to performance ratio.  We're off to a good start with the case retailing for only $49.99 at Newegg.
