SilverStone Precision PS08 Case Review

SilverStone Precision PS08 Case Review

Product : SilverStone Precision 08 Micro ATX Case

While the Precision PS08 has a few drawbacks compared to other microATX cases, you have to keep in mind that it costs only USD 40, which is at least half the price of other good microATX cases, such as the Precision PS07  and the Temjin TJ08-E . And we were surprised to see some features not usually found on cases at this price range, such as the metallic thumbscrews to open the case, the air filter for the front panel, and the painted rear panel and interior. If you are looking for a small and inexpensive case, the PS08 is an excellent choice.
