Introduction

It's been quite some time since I sat down and got my hands dirty with a hardware review. I've been a bit busy with personal business lately and haven't quite had the time, but all my fans (all two of you out there) can rejoice cause I'm back in the saddle. And what better way to get back into it than a case review. Granted, when you're up to your hips in monsters and bad guys it's what's on the inside that counts but we all know that it's the cool looking cases that the chicks dig right? 

Today, for my return I'm fortunate to get my hands on one of Thermaltake's newest cases, the Eclipse DV. I've reviewed quite a few cases, some great and some not so great, and it's always fun to see what each one has to offer. So with that said, just what does the Eclipse DV have to offer?
