Summary: While the SilverStone SG09 deviates from the design of earlier Sugo enclosures,
the SG09 overall is a very compelling case. SilverStone designers successfully
made it so this case can hold a heck of a lot of hardware from two full-length
PCI Express graphics cards to a tall CPU cooler to a standard ATX PSU and up to
six disk drives all while within a very small form factor (220 x 354 x 295 mm).
It was a delight working with the SG09 from construction to use.
Silverstone Sugo SG09 Small Form Factor Tower & PA01 Sugo Pack Review
24 January 2013
Summary: There are a number of things to like about the Silverstone SG09 case and the big one is its size. We have reviewed several cases in the pass that are meant to serve as an enclosure for a mATX motherboard, but we have not yet reviewed one that is the size of an ITX case. That is right; the SG09 is large enough to hold a multi-GPU capable motherboard but is similar in size or smaller than some enthusiasts ITX cases.
Summary: Silverstone has taken the SG09 a step into a different direction from the rest of the Sugo series. All recent cases in that range are mini-ITX cases, but the SG09 can hold an mATX board. Don't let the naming fool you though. This is an impressively roomy chassis for its size. Silverstone has done everything they could to squeeze as much hardware into the case; they even went as far as they could with SG09's hard drive bays, which may have been too far for the taste of...
Pros: Extremely compact in volume for a potent mATX chassis, Can easily fit massive CPU coolers, Plenty of space for long dual-graphic card setups, Full size ATX PSU easily fits, 4x 2.5 inch and 2x 3.5 inch bays, Slimline ODD bay, 180 mm FDB Air Penetrator fan on the top, 2x USB 3.0, USB 3.0 to 2.0 adapter included, Dust filter on all intake fans, mATX compatibility, Positive air pressure system helps keep dust out of the system, Well thought out interior. Nearly its entire...
Cons: Glue-on feet, No eject button for ODD, Air penetrator fan is audible at full speed, Hard drive bays hard on the limit of what is possible with cables in the space given, Design deviates from that of previous Sugo series cases, Basic I/O
Summary: The SilverStone Sugo SG09 is an excellent choice for the user who is building a small form factor (SFF) computer and wants a product that fits a microATX motherboard and a regular-sized power supply. It easily allows you to build a small yet powerful gaming PC.
SilverStone Sugo SG09 Case Review: Someone at SilverStone Loves Tetris
20 October 2012
Conclusion: I've typically been of the opinion that for builders, Corsair cases are generally novice level while more experienced users can try their luck with SilverStone's more specialized enclosures. That continues to be true with the Sugo SG09, where it's clear to me that while the case is fine for a fairly general build, it needs a little more care to really shine. Let's hit the positives first.
Summary: The SilverStone Sugo SG09 Case is one of the best SFF cases on the market. There are plenty of fans included and more can be added, lots of drives can be installed & fits standard ATX PSUs. Also, it accommodates full length video cards and CPU coolers. As well, it looks great, is functionality and loaded with excellent features.

Excerpt: La caja que analizamos hoy de Silverstone es una herramienta pura y dura. Silverstone, conocida por su cuidado del diseño, se desmarca con una caja nacida para ofrecer máximas prestaciones en el mínimo espacio. Una caja que maximiza el rendimiento por litro de volumen interno.
Excerpt: Mit dem Sugo SG09 hat SilverStone ein äusserst kompaktes Gehäuse im Angebot, das wieder erwaten nicht nur Platz für ein MiniITX-Board und eine Grafikkarte, sondern für ein mATX-Board und zwei Grafikkarten bietet. Die Ingenieure haben sich offensichtlich den Kopf darüber zerbrochen, wie man die Komponenten in einem Gehäuse anordnen muss, damit man ein mATX-Board sowie zwei Grafikkarten möglichst kompakt anordnen kann.
Summary: Das Silverstone Sugo SG09 ist kein perfektes Gehäuse, das steht nach dem heutigen Test wohl außer Frage. Deswegen steht es aber noch lange nicht auf dem Verlierertreppchen und kann stolz auf seine Errungenschaften sein, die jetzt noch einmal erläutert werden: Durch seine kompakten Abmessungen eignet sich das Chassis sehr gut für anstehende LAN-Partys und besitzt dank eines neu entworfenen Innenlebens ein sehr großzügiges und vor allem gut durchdachtes Platzangebot für...
