Looks like a super-ugly version of a CM Elite 310. Makes my 310 look like the best case on this earth.

I know a lot of people have reservations against Thermaltake, but in the chassis market at least they really have improved.
I had reservations, but picked up an A90. And I have to say if they are following on the same path then its something worth considering.

"a leading brand in DIY computer chassis" ya right, i think coolermaster is leading instead. maybe not for looks, but sure have good sense in layouts.

Very true, but the key difference is we don't know until someone has reviewed it or tried it to see.
Being entry level I don't have the highest hopes.

But as I've said, I gave in and tried their new Armor Lineup and was very suprised by the case overall.
Sure there were room for improvments, but for $59.99 (After rebate) it was well worth the investment.

What TT really needs is consistenty.....

They certainly are a leading brand. Maybe not the most popular around here, but I can see the appeal that case might have for some. Now, that being said, I understand why there is so much venom aimed at TT. They have not innovated in years and are struggling to find a way to make themselves fit in todays market. However, even with all their floundering about they do come up with some good models. The V3 is an excellent budget case and the Element G is a solid enthusiast offering. I look forward to getting this in shop and taking a look at it myself before I make any judgment.
