When it is all said and done, I can now see why the V9 BlacX Edition chassis got the accolades that it did. The design and feature set that Thermaltake provides covers almost any component you would need to install. While internally I did complain about the lack of support for SSDs, it isn't all that hard to just set one into the Dock, but let's think logically for a moment. Who in their right mind is going to want to let a $200 plus investment sit in the top of their case, ripe for the plucking? That along with the small issue I ran into with the expansion card locks, are the only things I can really beat up the V9 BlacX for in any respect.
This mid tower chassis was a pleasure to use and install my goods inside of. The Dual Bay Dock is a huge bonus to this chassis and offers a level of ease not found in many other chassis' in this size or price range. Granted, the outside is a bit plain, but I like that about the V9. Simple designs with a great layout and features will win over a flashy case with a plain interior and the lack of tool-less latches. I for one am glad to see so many cases using tool-less mechanisms, and I can't wait for motherboard risers to come the same way, then we really can have a tool-free build experience.
So is it worth it? I have to say astoundingly, yes! Considering if you just wanted this dock to add to any chassis you already have, it is going to cost you near $60 and you still have to make room for it. For the $99.99 Newegg.com is asking I feel the price easily justifies itself. I mean seriously, you are buying a case for $40 with a $60 Dual Bay Dock built right into the chassis. With that investment, you get all the latest features found in more expensive cases, and there is still the LED lighting and near silent operation to consider into this. There are tons of places to find the V9 Black Edition, and some places are cheaper than others, but I will still advise if you are in the market for a very well appointed mid tower chassis you seriously consider the V9 BlacX Edition.
