Thermaltake New Soprano VO9000 Mid-Tower Case Review
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.
The Thermaltake New Soprano VO900 case is currently available in black and typically sells for $119.99 USD (Newegg.com, December 2012).
