After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.  I purchased in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain.  If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration. 

Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at

    Case Layout and Features

    Silverstone has always done a very good job in terms of style and embracing the "less is more" philosophy resulting in clean lines and purposeful placements. As was mentioned before the case is an all aluminum design with a mix of light and heavy aluminum stock throughout.

    The heavy stock can be found in all of the structural locations whereas the lighter stock is reserved for external panels and fan grills.
    The S in the TJ10 name stands for Silver which describes the anodizing process.  The exterior is fairly rough and soft, the finish will hide minor scratches quite well but a certain degree of care should be exercised to prevent surface imperfections. 
    External connections can be found on the top of the case hidden behind a popup door. The connections are limited but feature headphones, microphone, 2 USB, and 1 Firewire.
    The front of the TJ10 is very clean, actually on first look all you will find is the SilverStone logo, and power and reset buttons. The door is very unique in that there are no physical locking mechanisms. In fact unless you knew beforehand you'd never know that a couple small magnets are holding the door in place.
