The TTGI/ Superflower TT-461T1.
TTGI/ Superflower shipped us one of its newest available offerings; the TT-461T1. The TT-461T1 is an interesting blend of options from other Superflower cases that appear to have been bundled together to achieve an attractive price point, while at the same time producing a very capable case. As is common with more dubbed down offerings, the TT-461T1 has been engineered in such a way as to minimize the tradeoffs and maximize the features that many users want. The TT-461T1 was the only case that TTGI/ Superflower sent that offered a side panel window. Let's look at this case and see how it compares to the TT-301 and TT-561.

Upon our first inspection of this case, it was obvious that TTGI/ Superflower had reduced the thickness of the material used in its construction of the TT-461T1. TTGI/ Superflower opted to use steel for this case rather than more expensive aluminum. This is not all bad, since the company seems to have added some extra bracing in certain key areas to provide additional rigidity for the case. While the case did exhibit some flex, the amount of twist was very little to none. This is excellent, one of the best cases in this review for these factors.
