This review could start with the following: "To all PC moding enthusiasts..." So, the pages to follow are dedicated to a closer look at TT's new PC case release, the "Swing", from the VB6000 Middle Tower Series, a new PC case appealing entirely to moding enthusiasts. This new case comes in two colors, the Black AKA VB6000BWS one, and the Silver VB6000SWS version. We received the Black Swing model and set ourselves to looking into it as fast as we could Here's what we've got...
The new Swing VB6000BWS model is simplicity in itself. It has neither extravagant illuminated indications nor anything of the like. Of course the end user is free to further mod the case and give it the "touch" that suits his needs. However, TT has provided the case with a reflection-capable, streamline design front panel, that catches the eye at first sight. The "Piano coating" as described by TT, covers the entire front face and it is pretty impressive. The rest of the outer view remains typical, with the exception of the transparent Side Panel which allows a direct view of the inner system. With proper lighting the outcome is really impressive, a fact we will be able to come up with, further on in this review.
