  • Conclusion: Believe it or not, this is actually our second time reviewing this case. , where we compared it directly to a Shuttle system. Our reviewer liked it overall, but came across two problems; not much room for the processor cooler, and the installation was quite crowded with power supply cables.

SilverStone SG01

InsaneTek
9 March 2005
  • Summary: SilverStone continues to excel with each new case introduction.  It is a little sad that they have not focused too much on towers for regular systems but the SG01 sure makes up for it.  It allows enthusiasts to build their own SFF without sacrificing flexibility in their hardware choices.  The only downside would probably be the price.  Coming in at a little under $200, this case is not very affordable.
  • Pros: All aluminum, Extremely light weight, Great aluminum finish, Very roomy, Easy installation of hardware, Able to handle latest CPU's and video cards, Able to handle standard ATX power supplies
  • Cons: A bit expensive, No floppy bay

Silverstone SG01 SFF-Case

PC-Experience
9 July 2009
  • Conclusion: Das Silverstone SG01 SFF-Case konnte uns sowhl technisch als insbesondere auch optisch überzeugen, verarbeitungstechnisch reiht es sich ohnehin nahtlos in die hohe Güte der Gehäuse von Silverstone ein. Aber es existiert auch der eine oder andere Kritikpunkt, darum noch einmal die wichtigsten Eckdaten unserer Testresultate in der Gesamtübersicht:
  • Pros: sehr ansprechendes Design., sehr schicke Frontpartie., herausragende Verarbeitung., sehr geringes Gewicht., Einbau von Standard-ATX-Netzteilen möglich., Preis-Leistungsverhältnis noch gut (ca. 130 €)., sehr kompakt., hohe Mobilität., auch in Silber erhältlich.
  • Cons: viel zu laute Lüfter., Kühlereinschränkung., kein Diskettenlaufwerk., keine Staubklappe für Anschlußpanel.

Silverstone SG01 Mini-PC Gehäuse

6 April 2008
  • Summary: User, die einen kompakten Office-PC bauen wollen, der obendrein für seine Größe noch einen angemessenen Erweiterungsspielraum bietet, sind mit dem Silverstone SG01 bestens bedient. Das Gehäuse ist sauber verarbeitet, durchdacht konstruiert und sieht sehr edel aus. Einzig die Lüfter könnten ein wenig leiser sein und der Preis ist für das gebotene Zubehör ein wenig hoch angesetzt.

Silverstone SG01

20 September 2005
  • Conclusion: Dire que ce boîtier Silverstone SG01 nous a déçu est le moins que nous puissions dire. Dans l'absolu, c'est un boîtier bien conçu, extrêmement bien fini et à l'esthétique assez flatteuse. Mais tout son potentiel est ruiné d'emblée par son prix exorbitant de 200 euros , sans alimentation. A titre de comparaison, l'Antec Aria se négocie autour des 100 euros , avec alimentation. Certes, le SG01 est beaucoup plus spacieux mais nettement plus encombrant aussi.
