The Antidote To Tedium: 11 Midi Tower Cases Bring Excitement to the Desktop

SilverStone SST-TJ06: Totally Tubular

The latest PC case from SilverStone, the SST-TJ06, is the biggest midi tower in our comparison; it could really be classed as a smallish "big tower". Standing 55.6 cm (22") tall, it still fits handily under a desk. In some ways that's too bad, because the black case looks really exquisite! The USB, audio and IEEE1394 ports are on the right side of the case, rather than the front.

You wouldn't guess everything that's inside the SST-TJ06 by looking at it in its closed state. And when you open the case up on the front right side as usual, it will dawn on you that you can't actually install anything from there! We only realized why when we opened the top of the case.

Elegant looks

Front ports: all located on the side

Executive design: classy and black

The front panel has to be opened to install the 5.25" drives
