Lately the market has finally opened up, and in mid tower designs these days we can find cases that aren't going to break the bank and come very well equipped. It used to be that $100 might get you an Antec 900 case, and with that you got some cool hard drive cages and a bunch of airflow. The internal layout was very simplistic, wasn't painted, and your ears took a hammering from the noise level that come from inside the case. I really like the fact that manufacturers are realizing that buyers don't have a ton of expendable cash, and are actually trying to offer us some lower dollar products that still offer variations on things found in the much more expensive cases on the market.
Whether you are in the need for a LAN case that isn't going to take up a bunch of room, or if you just don't need all the room a full tower offers in your office, we already know Thermaltake made big waves with the earlier releases in the Element series of cases. This is sort of a cross between an Antec 900 and all the finer points found in the various Element cases. Thermaltake just didn't stop there with this chassis, though. Not only does this new design carry USB 3.0 connectivity and a lot of tool -less features, it is fully painted inside and out, designed well, and offers a huge bonus.
Today we are going to be taking a look at the V9 BlacX Edition chassis from Thermaltake. This chassis offers all I mentioned above in a mid tower frame. Keeping the outside design simple and understated makes this design a bit of a "sleeper"; it doesn't stand right out and say buy me right away. It's only when you look deeper into the feature set and realize that this case also has the bonus of an additional Dual Bay Dock built right into the top of the chassis. I for one am eager to finally get to see this up close for myself, but I am also as eager to show you what you may have missed.
