[Silverstone] Silverstone FT05 | CES 2014 - Page 6

post #51 of 541
This is nothing like the FT02. The FT02 is one of the best looking cases under $300. It has some of the best air cooling around. The workmanship and materials used are extraordinary.

The FT05 looks like a sad pathetic knockoff of the FT02. The rounded corners are gone and replaced with boxed corners. There is far more steel than aluminum. That is if there even is aluminum in the FT05. Putting a door on a case is one of the worst things you can do functionality wise.

It looks like a plain metal box. You'd be better off getting a (probably cheaper) Corsair or even a Cooler Master. There is no way I would trade my FT02 in for this pile of scrap. Even if it meant easier transport to LAN parties.

Well at least I'm not alone in agreeing that the FT02 is a PITA to move around. If there's a LAN, it's coming to me, lol.

I'm pretty sure looking at the pics there's no door on the front of the FT05. I agree that it is a shame that the rounded corners have disappeared though.

Yeah, I think he was seeing the slim disk drive spot and assumed it was the door-hinge. tongue.gif

While FT05 seems like a fitting name, OP really needs to fix that title. The article says this is the RV05, believe it or not (looks more like a FT case to me).

 

FT02>RV05

 

They should have just tried shrinking the FT02. Aesthetics on this are worse IMO compared to the FT02.

Nothing to fix here. Pretty clear FT05 is the name of this, unless more sources come out and back up what appears to be a mistake on the part of Tom's Hardware.

I hope TH is wrong. Looks nothing like a Raven case.

There's some pics floating around of the RV05, similar internals to the FT05 here but with the usual wacky Raven styling biggrin.gif

I hope not, because then it means Raven pricing, besides I think the series was due for an overhaul, no? Ravens have had sharp lines, I could see this case being a Raven due to how sharp looking the boxy edges are.

We've already gone over that tongue.gif
