Thermaltake Commander MS I case review

 

Thermaltake is probably the manufacturer with the largest selection of computer cases available at the time of this review. Not a week ago we reviewed the unique and pricey Level 10 GT case. Today we are going to examine a much different product, the Commander MS-I case. The Commander MS-I is the exact opposite of the Level 10 GT we have reviewed before; it is a very aggressively priced product aiming at the lowest segments of the market. We will find out what the Commander MS-I can do for gamers and enthusiasts on a budget in this review.
