Summary: Budget cases have a lot of live up to since they have to look great, come with lots of features and be affordable. This combination is not always possible and sometimes doesn't work, but the Thermaltake Commander MS-I Case delivers.
Summary: The Thermaltake Commander MS-I chassis is the perfect example of how small things in cases could make all the difference. If you look at the USB 2.0 version, then the market offers many other enclosures from various manufacturers which tend to offer the same or better level of quality and at least an identical feature set at the same price point. One such example is the AeroCool XWarrior Red Devil Edition which offers a red interior, cool looks and more fans for example.
Pros: USB 3.0 connectivity, Cool and detailed design, Real 3.5 inch bay, Excellent, solid front for the price, LED equipped fan in the rear, Tool-less on three HDD and two ODD bays, Simple cable management possibilities, Bottom mounted PSU, Completely detachable case front, All black internals, 2.5 inch bay on the floor, Dust filter for the PSU bay, Big CPU coolers like the Super Mega fits, Locking bar for expansion cards holds surprisingly well
Cons: The USB 2.0 version costs just as much and thus will not sell, Plastic locks do not hold too well, Top vents not usable for a radiator, Bottom air vent has no dust filter, No space behind the mainboard tray for easy cable hiding/management, USB 3.0 with external connector
Summary: The Thermaltake Commander MS-I is the ideal case for someone looking to build a nice system for someone not asking for too much. It offers all the is necessary in a case like good air ventilation when you take in account all the available fan options, USB ports (in this case USB 3.0) in an easy to reach location and plenty of room for storage devices like hard drives and solid state drives.
