Pre-modded cases are probably the most sought-after cases these days. In response to this demand, many case manufacturers have changed their focus to flashy, tricked out cases rather than the traditional beige box. The average user who is looking for a decent workstation case without all the bells and whistles may feel left out. Foxconn however has two chassis' for us today that might fit that category. We have Foxconn’s TV-544 and TP-544 in our lab today, and we can say up front, that these are probably some of the best cases for users who are not looking for flashy, modded-out cases. Why? Read more to find out.

As the Foxconn TV-544 and TP-544 are practically identical in all aspects of the design and features, except for the size, we've bundled both of these cases into this article. The TV-544 is designed for MicroATX systems while the TP-544 is designed to meet the standard mid-tower ATX form factor. Inside each respective cardboard box, we found the Foxconn case, keys, and a concise, well-written manual. Each case itself was protected by foam padding to prevent any damage during shipping. Included with the TV-544 case was a 24-pin Fortron 300W while the TP-544 contained the 350W version. Unlike many power supplies currently bundled with different chassis' these Forton PSUs were very much welcome as they are known to be a high quality design than other generic solutions.
