Silverstone TJ04-E Review

Up Close: Packaging and Exterior.
At first sight the TJ04-E comes packed in pretty much the same way as most cases do. A heavy duty cardboard box with the case in a big plastic bag and two large sections of polystyrene either end to provide isolation and shock/vibration damage. On delving a little deeper into the packaging however we see that Silverstone have gone a little further than most and included a sheet of expanded polythene which totally covers the front aspect of the case ensuring protection of the brushed Aluminium surface underneath.
Extracting the case from it's protective polystyrene nest we are greeted with the simplistic beauty afforded by the clean lines of the TJ04-E. I think it only fair to say at this stage I'm rather taken with the looks of this case. The front of the case is made from a single piece of 7mm Aluminium, milled flat and then brushed to give a wonderfully luxurious silky feel to and look. Seriously sexy is really the only way to describe it.
The example we have for review is the non window example, but be assured that Silverstone do produce a windowed version of this case also.
In the non windowed model the left side of the case is totally featureless, further adding to the sleekness of the design. The right side of the case has a small vented area at the bottom front corner. This is the intake for the HDD colling system which we will talk more about later.
