Final Thoughts and Conclusions
If you are in the market for a Micro-ATX tower enclosure, the SilverStone TJ08-E case deserves to be up at the top of your list. The TJ08-E provides excellent cooling and it packs a lot of storage capacity into a small tower chassis. The overall build quality is very good and the beautiful black anodized front panel is just what we would expect from SilverStone. Easily removable side panels, top, motherboard tray, and HDD cage are icing on the cake. The TJ08-E proved to be a pleasure to work with and earned this editor’s choice award!
The SilverStone TJ08-E Micro-ATX enclosure is currently available with a street price of $99.00 USD (Newegg.com, January 2012).
Note: SilverStone recently released the Precision Series PS07 enclosure, which is very similar to the TJ08-E except the PS01 has a different front panel and uses two 120mm intake fans instead of one 180mm fan. It’s also over $20 less expensive.
