    Very bad experience with Zebronics case

    [​IMG]

    Very bad experience with Zebronics case. I have invested three days in reviewing the VENUS case and now feel cheated.
    I was asked to review a Zebronic case and i selected Venus as it have a good design and marketed as Premium case with high price.
    But last night i noticed two piece of black tape under the case. Earlier i though it might be some place for product serial no sticker or like this. But it came out as tape is used to cover design faults. They have used the same top plastic panel inthe bottom of case and covered the holes for switches and usb port with a black tape.

    What .... they dont bother to make a separate piece of plastic for the bottom of the case. And how can they sell a product with tape over it at such a high price and calling it a premium product. Lost my hope and faith from Zebronics.

    Sorry guys dont spend ur hard earned money for a case with tape over it.

    Just to confirm that it's a retail product sharing a pic from product site clearly showing the holes for the metal bar in the bottom plastic cover.

    Sir ji mistake and design fault can come under a criteria of human error, but this is pure cheating with your customers.

    For the Cooler Master Masterbox Lite 5, front intake is from the top and bottom perforated intakes and rear intake is as usual like in all the cases. It's just an awesome case to have around.

    Try deepcool ones rakesh, they are very VFM compared to premium brands, and with good quality.

    As shown by you,Sunil...I have faith on CoolerMaster cases.My PC's cabinet is also based on that.

    As for Zebronics,it pretty sucks for their products,though they are trying to improve a lot.May be 5 years down the line,they will bring out decent and good quality products.

    Hi please don't mind but I am puzzled.

    How exactly did you get/feel cheated"? You Reviewed the product and didn't purchase it, so you didn't lose any money. In fact shouldn't you be happy/thankful to Zebronics that you were able to use and review such a costly device for free? ;)

    Same thoughts here.
    Since, you haven't purchased the item,how do you get cheated???
    Yes,we are very Thankful to you Bro.,as you had reviewed the case ,shown us the defects,design flaws,whatever it is.It's a real eye opener for those of who want to compromise their system by thinking that they are saving a few thousands,if it would have been purchased from a reputed manufacturer.
    Again,your review is an awareness or rather a learning process for all of us.

    But mentioning "cheated" on the comment section of this thread has really confused some of us.

    I felt cheated for me and all my followers on social media and on my blog, as Zebronics is marketing this case as Premium product with premium price too and many were ready to buy the product.

    When i was asked to review the case, i confirmed their PR guys to tell me truth about the case before i accept product for review as Zebronics is known for making bad PC cases. And they all said, it's a premium product with no flaws what so ever.. I will like it and so on..

    So I accepted to review and wasted my time to just find out tape to cover flaws.

    Dear all, I don't charge any money from any brand to review a product and also my blog is also not monetized.. So 100% no money, just do review for fun and share with you all.

    And for me one thing is clear, if a brand send me a product (an expensive one too) to play with, it doesn't mean i will biased review that brand.

    Again cheated as was given false pre information of the product.

    Sorry if my words were confusing or misleading to anyone or anything. My motive was just to share truth about a product.

    Dear cheating don't mean just losing money.. even using someone for false marketing is also cheating.

    And I am Thankful to Zebronics and also to all other brands for sending there products for reviewing.

    But this Zebronics case was not a costly product.

    Do you know, they dont manufacture it in India.. they just purchased the cheapest available cases from Chinese and other market.
    And bro.. just like to share.. before introducing any product in market for sale.. all high level managements in every brand do lot of meeting and close interaction with the product as it will be reflecting their brand value.

    So just tell me how a product with a tape over it could pass management and goes on to the shelf for sale.. Not possible na..
    How can a designer, designed such a good case and decides to put a tape over it... Not possible na..

    So Zebronics already knew about the flaws but still hided from me during early discussions.

    And now after my post about the flaws, they say via email that they are sorry and will rectify all of the issues in version 2.. But I am sure there will never be a version 2.

    And i requested them to reply publicly on forums or social media.. but no reply any where.

    dont you think .. this is cheating with all of us..

    Hi @rakesh_sharma23, Mate, no need to be sorry. It was a confusion, which you erased by your super explanation regarding the review of the case. You shed the light and so all darkness regarding confusion has gone away. Friend I never intend to undermine you or your comments.
    Your motive is fully justified and highly appreciated in this forum.

    Hi it's okay and thanks for your explanation. I understand that you are trying to alert customers from purchasing a defective product. And I also agree with you that such design flaws sbouldn't have passed from sight. All in all it shouldn't be marketed as a premium product because it is 't. A premium tag on a non-premium product with premium price tag could fool consumers into parting with their hard earned money.

    They should rathet price it considerably lower i. 4-5k bracket.

    Also allow me to share two cents of my own -

    I have seen a lot of talk in forums about branded products being more expensive than non branded products. It is for the above listed issues only. Branded products go through R&D which substantially increases their cost making it flawless. Non-Branded products on the other hand have no such thing as R&D and so you get products which might or mightn't be defective. So if you are naking a costly purchase then buy a branded item only.

    Thanks for sharing this info. This is why I don't like spending on Indian brands.
    Corsair SPEC-01 for less than 3k is a very good buy. 8k on Zebronics is insanity. Their Bizli used to sell a lot back in the day. Now Antec also has some very good decent simple cabinets for less than 2k.
