This review is for those who want a PC case that looks like a modified PC cases. The following pages are going to take a closer look at Thermaltake's Soprano PC case. This PC case comes in two versions and colours: with or without the transparent X Side Panel Window, in black or silver. We had the opportunity to test the Black Soprano with the transparent panel.
The Soprano VB1000BWS is very striking, mainly due to the wavy front door and the X type transparent panel. However, one thing that is annoying is how easily fingerprints show up on the case, although TT provides a lens cloth to clean them with.
Enclosed dust cloth....
