When comparing this Case to my TJ09 the only advantage I see is that Corsair provided Cable Management holes, although this can be overcome in a Silverstone with a little creativity.....I Agree with Sheepdog...Hot Swappable HDD's means nothing to me as I certainly don't carry out swapping out my HDD's on a day to day basis. Now, the HDD's in a Silverstone Case are within removeable racks...replacing a HDD is as easy as sliding the rack out, removing a couple of screws, inserting new Drives and sliding rack back in...hell the HDD racks are completely seperate from the rest of the Case.
The Cases in fact look very similar aesthetically (sp)....
However, i'll take my aluminum Silverstone over this steel case any day...didn't realize they went Steel!! I do constantly move my Case from its "living" position to the Bench to work on it and I really don't want to be lugging around a steel Case....
To each his own...I do stand by Corsair products, but will stick to aluminum.
Introducing me n my OCD to Watercooling, is like taking an Alcoholic to an "all you can drink" Beach Bar in Mexico
