Thermaltake Element S
It’s always interesting to see how computer towers are marketed to consumers. Certain cases are targeted to gamers, professionals, and even women. Other than those garish pink cases, I’m not entirely sure what makes a case particularly suitable for gamers, at least from an aesthetics perspective. Sure, gamers may need better airflow, but does that mean the rest don’t? Does it need LEDs, but a "professional case" is more……..somber? Aesthetics are such a personal thing, but apparently companies think there is some type of commonality, otherwise we wouldn’t be seeing any more "gamer" cases, for example, now would we?
This brings us to today’s topic: Thermaltake’s new tower, the Element S. Apparently it’s designed to satisfy the needs of "creative professionals". I consider myself one of those people, so it should be interesting to see what the Element S offers, both in style and function. It does look good, though, so we may be onto something here.
There is an old adage in the world of design professionals: "Form follows function". Let’s have a look at the Element S and see if it can successfully resolve the two.
We would like to thank our friends at Thermaltake for supplying us with the review sample.
