    Bottom Line: If you're looking for a smart and durable shorter stature case, with a window and only plan on using 1 external 3 1/2" device and no more than three internal 3 1/2" devices then the Ultra Wizard may be the one for you.

    Out Of The Box

    We received the case in a large glossy box. The box itself was a giant advertisement for the case with large color photos and a list of features. The box didn't have handles cut into the cardboard to help with carrying it, so we had some fun with the UPS guy and threw some obstacles in front of him as he carried the case into the office, up high, with his view of the hallway ahead of him blocked. When we opened the box, we saw the usual white foam cushions on either side of the case. In between the foam was our MS-Blue Wizard, wrapped in plastic. I pulled the case out of the plastic and immediately realized that this case is a LOT darker than the picture on the box or on the web. I didn't mind the color at all, but it was almost black. Not even a navy blue because there was no green tint to the color at all. It was just a deep, deep, deep, pure blue.


    Here's the Wizard with it's door open. In the picture it does look quite blue, but that's primarily due to the flash.
    The color is actually much darker than any photo of the Wizard I've seen.

    The case felt sort of light, and at first I thought it was just because of the lack of power supply. But as I moved the case across the office, I used the hole that the power supply would bolt into as a handle. I felt the case almost cut into my skin and I dropped the case. I opened up the case and found that most of the case is made of pretty thin steel. Not quite as thin as the $30 to $50 cases that are out there, but thinner than your typical $50-$70 case, and definitely thinner steel than the Dragon case.
