Due to the similarities between this and the Eclipse-62, the Mirage was always going to be compared to its sibling, the Eclipse. However, when you look at the case on its own, you realise just what a good piece of kit it really is. Probably the best removable motherboard tray I've ever used, combined with rock solid build quality from the light and durable aluminium frame make a great base for a system build, and while the look of the case could be seen as a little boring, there's plenty of room for customisation.
Although the component temperatures were admittedly a little disappointing, we feel the Mirage more than makes up for this slight stumble with simple brilliant noise levels, and its customisable, spacious and straightforward internal layout. However, I can't help but feel that this update to the Eclipse could, and perhaps should have been so much more than a face lift, especially when you consider the £20 price difference between the two models.
