Now more than two years later, SilverStone has created a new product line, dubbed Fortress, based on the original TJ07 design and construction. Today we will be taking a look at the first offering from this new line, the FT01 Midtower chassis.
The FT01 arrived in the retail package that you see above. Large photos of the case, both in silver and black, adorn both sides of the cardboard box. From the size of the box, you would think this is a full tower chassis. SilverStone is quick to point out several features of the FT01 on the backside of the box, and have a complete list of specifications on the sides. Those specifications, borrowed from SilverStone's website, have been reproduced below.
I found it interesting that the UPS label noted the package weight at 49 pounds, yet the case itself is only listed at 8.66kg, or 19.1 pounds. That's quite a big difference, and I can assure you this case is nowhere near 49 pounds.
Continue ahead as we get down to business with the FT01...
