Introduction


Sharkoon Bulldozer Featured

Sharkoon are not what I would call most people’s first choice when it comes to picking a new chassis, at least not here in the UK. However, we’ve seen a couple of Sharkoon products in the eTeknix office over the last couple of years that really impressed us, not only for being great cases, but also because they offered great value for money. This has left us eager to see more from Sharkoon and today we will be taking a look at their new Bulldozer chassis, a budget friendly ATX chassis that is available in a choice of three colours. Blue, Green or Red LED edition are available, with the blue model coming in a grey chassis, while the green and red LED models come in a black chassis.

Priced at just under £50 the Bulldozer is far from expensive, making it a prime pick for those looking for a cost-effective build, but still pack plenty of features without dipping down to cheap chassis brands. As you can see from the specification below, the Bulldozer has support for a decent amount of storage, while supporting long graphics cards thanks to a removable hard drive bay, it features a side panel window, cable routing and pre-installed fans.
