On the whole, build quality in PC cases tends to be directly related to how expensive it is. And equipment aimed at an entry level market tends to have lower build quality than equipment aimed at a professional market. But as always, there are exceptions either way. Is the Thermaltake WingRS 301 such an exception?
Partially yes. Generally speaking, build quality refers to how well designed and constructed the product actually is from a subjective point of view. This includes factors such as reliability, sturdiness, fit and finish (if the product appears smoothly made and polished or is rough and ready), quality of materials and so on. We feel that the Thermaltake WingRS301 could offer a little bit more for a product of this price range. For example, metallic edges in the internal of the case are sharp and not rounded, so be careful when assembling the system. The case doesn't have real spacers for the motherboard but rather some bumps, which should be rounded with plastic tape in order to avoid damaging the motherboard. Also have in mind that big-sized coolers won't fit in this case and that you cannot place the rear backplate unless you remove the pre-installed case fan first. In addition, the expansion bay lock could be better and so make sure to check the available empty space before installing any large graphics card.
On the other hand, Thermaltake has paid attention to the design of the case. It's black finish lends the WingRS 301 its distinct character and at the same time fits to most modern interiors. The carrying handle is useful for moving around your system, especially if you are a gamer who spends your nights with you friends in LAN game parties around the city. Last but not least, the screw-less mounting mechanism for the optical storage/HDD drives offers convenience and works well although we cannot say that they look durable enough to handle any vibrations caused by carrying the case around with you.
Summing up our thoughts, we think that the WingRS 301 PC case could be a a good choice for entry-level users, although its retail price could be lower in order to keep up with competition from other vendors, who offer affordable PC cases with similar features and characteristics.
