Silverstone TJ09 ATX Full Tower Chassis
Published: 15th January 2007 | Source: Silverstone | Price: |Introduction
Silverstone started off on the right foot in the case-making industry by making some very attractive cases. Now seemingly they want to step it up a level with some exciting and innovative products. The full-tower TJ09 puts them head-to-head with the likes of Lian Li, Cooler-master and perhaps Antec - some stiff competition indeed.
I'm incredibly fussy about which case, as are most people when deciding what goes on or below their desk, so when I was asked to review the TJ09 I wanted to know if it would fit my image of a case...
There's not a whole lot to say about packaging for the TJ09, apart from it's very solid and will look good on a retail shelf. It's pretty professional looking and has some blurb about the case features on the rear with some information.
I should not have worried. Silverstone have wrapped the case up very snugly and there was not a mark upon it apart from those that my fingers had made. Very well packaged indeed which is good to see.
There really isn't much to the package with the TJ09. Most of everything is already fitted to the case and the extra bits and pieces you need make up the rest is supplied.
The extension wires are supplied extra to the wires that are already inside the TJ09 for the front audio, USB and Firewire. These are an excellent inclusion from Silverstone, especially for those who like to take a slightly longer wiring route to hide them all.
The notable exception that was missing from the TJ09's package was a CD/DVD drive bay cover. My Lian Li PC71b had two of these included and they certainly smarten up the look of the case if you don't have a silver DVD or CD burner.
Now let's take a closer look at the case itself...
