Who ripped off who? XClio/Tagan/Abs

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So many people may have noticed the cases from Xclio, tagan, and Abs are the exact same designs. My question is who came up with these first?

It seems to me that Abs and Tagan are most likely the same company seeing as theirs are exactly the same and share the same names.

Its a shame that this kinda stuff happens, especially for the original designers. If case companies aren't capable of coming up with original designs, they don't deserve to stay in business. I know this isn't exactly the first case of this either.

Example One:

Xclio


Tagan


Abs


Note: It looks like the Tagan/Abs versions still even have the Xclio "X" in the center of the side fans


Example Two:

Xclio


Tagan


Abs



The reviews of the Tagan cases on Newegg point to them as being ripoffs of Xclio, and even representatives from Tagan have left replies claiming their designs to be original.

well the tagans and the abs are the exact same case... like same factory. im guessing tagan owns abs or something like that. im pretty sure xclio had those designs first though.

I believe Tagan is a German company? ABS might just be their US distributor who are rebadging their products.

I noticed this as well, and I'm fairly sure Xclio had the two designs first.

I've posted this before in another thread...but...

Most of the cases by these PC companies are not even manufactured by them. This Company produces and sells many of the most popular case designs and if you order enough of them...they'll slap any logo you like on them. They can make "copyright" changes to them...but - that's how you end up with so many similar ones on the market...

Check the link out and see if there are any there that you recognize.

*Ahem* ... Who ripped off whom ...

I don't really care who came up with the designs first. I think whoever did should be embarrassed.
