Positioned to be the successor of the Sugo SG-01, the SG-03 was unveiled at Cebit 07 and has created quite a fair bit of attention. Today, the SG-03 lands in our hands, and in this very review we’re going to tear it apart and examine the innards for your viewing pleasure.

The SG-03 on display at Cebit

We’re looking at a case that’s made to replace the SG-01, the miniature mATX form factor that many are looking to shift to to make more space for other aspects of their lives. The Silverstone Sugo SG-01 shoebox case is already very popular with many enthusiasts, serving many purposes such as a HTPC or a power packed desktop computer. The SG-03 is definitely bigger than it’s predecessor, but it definitely packs enough a punch for those who like small cases to get it. Interestingly, Apart from third party accessories, the SG-03 also comes with some pretty nice customized accessories for the case itself.
