Summary

NEW CASES... with multiple chasis colors with ODD's? Very interesting.

Experience a fusion of style and function with Pop Series. Open up for more airflow with Pop Air or cut down on sound with Pop Silent. Whichever path you choose, Pop Series will provide you with a solid build, a straight-forward layout, and will serve as a stylish addition to your desk space.

Quote

With their Define range you get a number of options included at a fairly high price. By contrast Pop relies on optional accessories such as extra drive mounts and USB Type-C for the front I/O panel to keep the price low.

We are confident that Fractal Design is directly targeting Phanteks Eclipse with the Pop series and we are very keen to see how this welcome competition helps the enthusiast that is working on a tight budget.

 

My thoughts

Whoever Fractal is targeting to come with this case, there are clear cost cuts to get this to $90. At this price range, given the feature set Most people will likely opt for the 4000D when it gets below $100 USD again, or down to the Coolermaster NR600 (For those looking for that H510 boxy minimalistic look) There's no substitute for anyone looking for a cheap good build quality for price with two ODD bays, but for anyone else there's probably other things to consider, assuming you can get previously cheaper cases like the Lancool 215, P400A or 4000D for their launch prices, Or if the Pop series ends up above $100 after launch.

Anybody know of a site with all of the color variations pictured? I've seen at least three in different reviews but no full lineup. I'm always interested when case brands rediscover that colors besides black, white, and gray exist. 

Your "PC master race" thing is cringe.

Presumably these will also be available in the white configuration too.

They're probably targeting school & office ? Also maybe old-school users that still need 5.25 bays a lot.
Although it might be a good idea to DIY an LCD into that bay.

But yeah, it's something different in not a bad way IMHO.

There are many expansion ones too for front USB's and analog fan controllers too.

Yeah.
There's still some floating around at aliexpress.

I was thinking DIYing something like JayzTwoCent did.
Standard 5.25bays usually up top, this one is at the bottom, so if the pc case is on table, the LCD w
ill be viewable easily.
