"Bottom line: find yourself wishing the Define R6 carried a bit more swagger? Vector RS will be right up your street."
"It is not easy picking the top case for any year, because they are all good. Really good. However, the Vector RS stands out for its surprisingly modular design and stealthy exterior trimmed with a touch of RGB goodness."

"I’ve been a fan of the top-end Fractal Design cases since before I started working at eTeknix. They’ve always delivered super clean looking products and fantastic durability. Chances are that if you bought a Define R5 many years ago, it’s still going (literally) strong. I suspect the Vector RS will also stand the test of time."
"KitGuru says: An all round great case from Fractal Design. Improvements on an already solid design and now with added RGB!"
"The best part about it is that it is not “RGB in your face”, but rather a very sleek design and a case I would love to have sitting on my desk."
