Thermaltake New Soprano VO9000 Mid-Tower Case Review

Manufacturer: Thermaltake

Final Thoughts and Conclusions

The New Soprano is a worthy addition to Thermaltake's popular Soprano Series of mid-tower enclosures.   The New Soprano is designed for enthusiasts who want a full-featured mid-tower enclosure that is quiet.  The New Soprano offers good case cooling options with support for both air and liquid cooling. Sound-dampening foam on the side panels and two relatively quiet case fans keep noise under control. The brushed aluminum front door, curved lines and black finish give the Soprano a simple but elegant look. In addition to a full compliment of internal and external storage options the Soprano comes with an easy to access top-mounted HDD hot-swap Docking Station that supports both 2.5" and 3.5" HDDs. Overall the New Soprano proved to be a robust case and a nice addition to the Soprano Series.

I totally see why this didn't get a gold award they were soooo close...it looks like a really nice case that could replace my 600t especially for that price but the drive bay/tray thing is more of a downgrade situation.

The case is very appealing and I'd recommend for anybody whom the drive bay situation would not be an issue
