Thermaltake Armor A60 VM20001W2Z
The Thermaltake Armor A60 is quite an oddity in the Thermaltake product range. It is a good case when taken by itself, and it does boast some more advanced features over the more conservative Armor A90. However, for the price of entry, the Armor A60 simply doesn't seem worth it. It doesn't feel like it is worth $40 more than the V3 Black Edition, nor does the $10 saved over the Armor A90 seem worth the quality you give up.

Introduction

USB 3.0 is upon us. The advancements made in the standard over USB 2.0 has made its proliferation into motherboards rapid. Rapid enough, at least, that it has caught many case manufacturers off guard, with many recent cases in development seemingly having been switched to support USB 3.0 at the last minute. Now that quite a few months have passed by since the standard was made available to consumers, more and more cases should be arriving soon that were designed around USB 3.0 support. With that in mind, HardwareLogic has the Thermaltake Armor A60 mid-tower case in our stable. The A60 is the newest case in Thermaltake's Armor line of enthusiast cases, and it was designed to be a bit more forward thinking than the older A90 was. It integrates some more recent case design ideas inside including USB 3.0 support.

Packaging

The box for the Armor A60 is similar to the one for the Armor A90. The front of the box has a picture of the case on it when it is lit up, and to the right of the case picture it mentions the integrated USB 3.0 support and the swappable 3.5" drive bay. It also has a pretty cool render of a guy in medieval armor swinging a sword which ties in pretty well with the Armor name (though the A60, like the A90, is styled more like a stealth jet than anything else). Something else different from the Armor A90 case is the WGC logo, as Thermaltake was the official hardware sponsor of this year's games.
