Silverstone Grandia GD02-MT Case

Packaging & Contents

Packaging & Contents
The case comes in a sturdy cardboard box, which is adorned with images of the case contained within. There is quite a bit of information printed on the box with all the major selling points being covered. On the top of the box is a picture of the case both in the black and aluminium finish, with some text highlighting the major features. The sides of the boxes give the specifications and and some short intro text.

Upon opening the box, we found the contents to be well secured with foam and cardboard inserts. Under the top layer of card was the case, which I thought was wrapped in some black material.

Once I removed the case from the box I realised that the material was in fact a drawstring bag. I'm not sure what use it could have after the case has been used, but it keeps the case in tip top condition during transit. Silverstone have also protected the front panel and LCD screen with a moulded plastic cover.

Within the outer box was two smaller boxes. In one there was the accessories, and within the other was the remote control. We shall discuss the remote control further into the review. The accessories were as follows:
  • Driver CD ROM with iMon Software
  • Installation guide
  • Motherboard, PSU, HD, and CD/DVD screws
  • Motherboard stand offs
  • Allen key for top panel bolts
  • Slim Optical drive adapter & screws
  • 3pin to molex power adapter
  • 2 cable ties

All in all, the packaging was more than adequate and the box would have to be thrown around alot for the contents to be damaged. As LCD screens can be quite easily damaged, it was good to see that Silverstone had taken some consideration into protecting it during transit.
On the next page, we take a look at the case externals.

Nice review there, Similar to what ive got atm, the thermaltake DH104...

I found the LCD to be a real dissapointment, took me ages for it to actually find my media, and then I had to use the desktop app to get at it as the LCD didnt find it :S

Anyway, nice one once again stuart!Quote

Great review. Dont see enough of these reviews about.

Fair comment with the construction points and limitations.

Personally I think the prices of these scare people. They look good, have some nice gimmicks, but when all the screws are taken out - it's a pc case. For the same price u can get one of those oversized LL server eatx thingies.Quote

Great review as always Stuart, and I'm inclined to agree with Rast's comments above. A thoroughly enjoyable read though Quote

Thanks alot fellas, glad you liked the review. I was concerned over the price too, till I found out the price of small LCD's alone. I was shocked to hear how much they retail for (around £150ish). Considering this, I don't think that the price for the case was unfair. As Rast mentioned though, the LCD's are quite gimmicky and the novelty would soon wear off.Quote
