I don't like the front of it, but it seems to be pretty similar to ThermalTake's other cases internally.
I am glad to see they finally stopped using that ugly green and purple PCI Screwless system. Black looks so much better. One thing to know about that, on my Tsunami I was unable to use it with some video cards. Specifically the XFX cards with that metal bar running down the side of the card. The latch would hit that metal bar, so I had to remove it and use screws instead. It looks like this case would have the same problem.
Also about the video cards interferring with the hard drives. Unless they have change the design and size drastically since the Tsunami, and it doesn't look like they have, longer cards will definitely interfere with the hard drives. My 7900GTs make it impossible to install hard drives in 2 of the hard drive slots. It won't be a problem for most people, since they usually only have one or two hard drives, but I have 4 and it is kind of a pain.
Also, are you sure the fan whole in the side window is 80mm? On the Tsunami and Soprano it is 90mm, and it looks like it is the same size on this case, but Thermaltake doesn't list it in the specs.
Also, the ugly black mesh doesn't look nearly as bad once you put a fan in that opening. In fact I am kind of surprised Thermaltake didn't put a fan there, to be honest. In their other cases that whole already has a fan in it.
Also, the plastic cover over the I/O ports on the top of the case seems kind of weak to me. In fact I broke the one on my Tsunami off on accident, it didn't take too much force. I literally just sort of bumped it with my hand while reaching to unplug my thumbdrive.
