Thermaltake V9 BlacX
New ideas often originate, ironically, from other ideas. We see something, figure out what makes it successful, then dream up ways to improve it and tweak it, then set out to make it a reality, hoping that we actually do make something better by the end. We see it in the world of architecture, cars,and believe it or not in the world of computers.
Today we’re looking at a new mid-tower chassis from Thermaltake that looks eerily familiar, seeming to channel the essence of something we’ve seen before from Thermaltake. In fact, the new V9 BlacX is an evolution of the vanilla V9 mid-tower case. Whereas the V9 showed some promise but offered nothing terribly original, the BlacX version does exactly that by incorporating a hard drive and solid state drive docking bay right into the chassis itself.
Priced at about $100, the V9 BlacX appears to offer some great value for what’s included here. Let’s take the V9 BlacX for a test drive and see whether Thermaltake has been successful with this updated version.
