Thermaltake Soprano VO900M1N2N Review

Thermaltake introduced the Soprano VX back in 2006 with a $60 price tag and it was a pretty good little mid-tower case. It had simple styling and was feature-packed, for 2006. It also had a sleek piano black coating on the front panel that set it apart from the rest. The Soprano RS 101 came shortly thereafter in 2008, also with a $60 introductory price tag, and was available with or without a side panel window and had a sleek front door with the same piano black coating. It’s now been about 5 years since the folks at Thermaltake have redesigned the Soprano but it’s finally here. It’s simply called “New Soprano” and is a completely redesigned ATX mid-tower that is packed full of features – all for $117.72 shipped. The Thermaltake New Soprano is available in two forms, a stark contrast of white exterior against black interior (VO900M6N2N) or a full black exterior and interior (VO900M1N2N).  minimal furnishings, lightings and brushed metal accents enhance the visual amenity for a sleek and professional office or home environment.

Thermaltake Soprano

The Thermaltake New Soprano has some awesome features that should be noted. On the earlier versions of the TT Soprano the front door was plastic, this time around Thermaltake used aluminum front door. Not only does this step away from the Piano-black coating, it adds a much more durable feel to the New Soprano. Recently we have seen acoustic foam insulation popping its head out in several cases over the past year or so. The New Soprano also keeps the system noise down by utilizing the sound deadening properties of acoustic foam insulation. The top-mounted hot-swap dock for 2.5” and 3.5” drives is quite similar to the Thermaltake BlackX dock in the way that it works. All you have to do is pop in a 3.5″ hard drive or 2.5″ SSD or hard drive and you’re good to go. Unlike previous versions of the TT Soprano, the New Soprano features internal SuperSpeed USB 3.0. Strictly looking at the specifications the New Soprano looks like it has a lot of promise!
