No, this review is not about the plasma TV. It's about the nice computer case to the left of it.

It is available in four editions:
  • Black - with Window
  • Black - no Window

Packaging


The box the Thermaltake Mozart TX comes in is HUGE. Lucky that it was not too heavy due to the all aluminum construction, which allowed it to be carried by one person.

If you decide to transport it in a car make sure you got 45 cm x 45 cm x 80 cm space available.


Inside the package the case is protected by Styrofoam and a transparent plastic. So even if the box is thrown around during shipping, chances are very low that damage to the case can occur.


In the box there is only the case, no extra boxes with loose parts.

Contents


Everything that is shipped with the case is stored inside it. You will find:
  • e-SATA cable
  • Instruction manual
  • Screw package
  • VFD display

All cables inside the case are attached firmly with sticky tape, so nothing will move around during shipping.


The keys to open the side panels are taped to the the back side. Easy to find, well attached.
