They produced some poor watercooling gear, and some sub-par niche products. But their power supplies and cases have never been less than "mid-range" some of them even being the underdog of the competition and rising above the rest. In recent years TT has started to progress toward their old crown - don't be so hasty to judge.
An ex-thermaltake fan.
I will agree that TT has made some shoddy products here and there in a desperate attempt at gaining lost ground, but let's be honest, some of their newer stuff has been pretty impressive. And almost everything they have ever made has been fairly priced. I used to be a TT fanboy, and that died when they took a dive off the deep end into liquid cooling, they fell way behind the power curve there... but up until then they were damned fine cases and power supplies. I think we may yet again see a day when one could be proud to own a thermaltake.
Case looks very good:
Issues I can see from the surface:
- Poor cable management.
- Likely flimsy tool-less system
- Poor liquid cooling compatibility
- Odd fan placement and spacing
- Odd window
I would rather one of the NEW TT Soprano'sthough if priced similarly... if I wanted to go with a TT case, unfortunately nothing they make fits my new bill - high density. (fitting a full ATX rig into a MATX sized case, with liquid cooling.. not many products fit that bill.)Edited by Xaero252 - 3/4/13 at 1:30am
