    Thermaltake Shark Case Review - Front Ports and Performance


    (Page 5 of 6 )

    The case features two USB 2 ports, a firewire port and audio in and out sockets on the side of case.  This is great because it doesnít mean you have to have the door open when you want to temporarily connect a camera or plug in your headphones.  The cables for the front access panel and also for the power-button and lights are clearly labelled; this doesnít sound like much of a feature but itís surprising how many low end cases still donít do this.  Another small but far from insignificant details that helps you to understand where those extra dollars went is the fact that the audio connections connect straight to the motherboard, instead of standard 3.5mm jacks that have to be routed out of the case and back in through the rear audio sockets, which again, is the all-too familiar scenario faced when you buy a cheap case.

    The case does come with a very basic instruction manual that actually seems to provide more value in the humour content generated by the poorly translated instructions rather than actual useful information, but there are some pictures to help clarify certain points and itís a nice touch to even include a manual with a case.

    Performance-wise, there isnít much I can comment on; generally cases donít actually do much except house your components.  One thing I can say is that the case fans in the Shark are a little loud.  They arenít deafening or anything but when itís late at night and youíre trying to concentrate, the last thing you want is continual background whirring.  Iíve had the case in use now for about a week so it may just be a case of them needing to be worn-in.  Only time will tell if this is the case I guess.
