    The Damier series cases and the WinGo series cases are almost identical in almost every respect. The only thing that distinguishes them from each other is their external design (mainly the front panel). The Damier has a checkered pattern door while the WinGo has a skived design. Each series comes in 3 different colors: silver, black, and blue. However, only the silver cases come in aluminum while the black and blue versions come in steel.

    The internal structures of the cases are identical, which is why in the review only pictures of the Xaser V Damier were taken when it came to going into detail about the innards of the case.

    To LAN party fanatics, it is recommended to purchase the silver aluminum version of the Xaser V as opposed to the steel version. When comparing the weight between the steel case and the aluminum, the steel case was quite heavy to carry, even when the components were not installed (when components were installed, it seemed that it was impossible to carry it for long distance). Compared to the steel version, the aluminum case felt like a feather (when components were not installed), since it only weighed 15lbs.
