Jou Jye Venus review

Nice from far; far from nice

Construction is a bit of a let-down given the price

Our Verdict

Quiet and has little vibration, but build is a little disappointing given the price


  • Quiet


  • Plasticky construction

From a distance the Venus looks fairly funky and stylish.

Up close, its plasticky reality is revealed. It feels a little flimsy, which is unexpected given the price. Getting a drive in the chassis, though, is simple and requires the minimum of screwdriver-based effort.

The cooling fan is quiet and vibration is almost non-existent, but for our money we'd still go for an alternative.
