What makes a "professional" case? I’m not entirely convinced it is so different from any other type of case that’s targeted to specific groups, since there are commonalities that surely cross demographics: style, quality, functionality, cost. These are characteristics of great products, regardless of who the target market may be. Marketing spin aside, the Element S does exhibit these qualities in a successful blending of each in a rather simple and straightforward setup.

The Element S is not a terribly complicated case; the features are robust, the style is appealing, and the quality is excellent, proving that good design is often simple. Thermaltake is often known for its flashy cases, and the Element S is a rather refreshing departure from that trend, appearing more mature and polished, while exercising elegant simplicity and functionality.

The Element S is an superb mid tower case, offering some great treademark Thermaltake features and a refreshing design aesthetic that conveys quality and maturity in a package that remains sleek and contemporary. Great cooling, great cable management, and lovely aesthetics are hallmarks of a great tower, and the Element S does not disappoint in those regards.  The build quality enhances the experience as well, and priced at $130 USD at online retailers at launch, the Element S offers a far better package than most similarly-priced products in this market segment.

The Thermaltake Element S is an excellent mid-tower case that showcases a very successful blend of style, functionality, quality, and cost, and is a clear winner in our books. If you’re in the market for a new mid-tower that offers versatility to suit a wide range needs and tastes, the Element S should be near the top of your shortlist.
