When it comes to computer cases, it all comes down to personal preference. Some want a large window, some folks want none. Some may want a power supply included while others already have a serviceable one that they want to keep. Thermaltake has gone far in providing you with enough choices to make you happy and it shows with the Aguila. But once we get past the aesthetics of the enclosure, there is still the matter of a good layout and nice features.
Cooling is often a killing point in a new case design, but the Aguila has excelled in this area. With two 120mm fans included with the default setup, it already has more going for it than most enclosures currently on the market. Add in the rubber grommets used in the hard drive tower and the mostly tool-free installation features and you have a very nice overall design.
I also like the hinged front bezel concept. This is a design that Thermaltake has been using on several of its case designs and it works very well. It makes getting at the filters a simple matter and makes drive installation a snap.
As far as price is concerned, you can expect to fork out about US$120 for this thing. While not the most expensive case on the market, it is certainly no bargain basement special. Of course, I have said in the past and still maintain to this day, you get what you pay for.
Bottom line... If you've been considering a new case and want something that looks great and has very good cooling already in place, make sure to add the Thermaltake Aguila to your short list of potential candidates. It offers a lot of features that are generally only available to the DIY modder and they are very professionally done.
