Excerpt: Thermaltake's mATX entry in the Armor series, the A30, is an interesting and robust case targeted at gamers who occasionally may wish to schlep their machines to a lan party or other gaming event. It has, however, proved to be a mixed bag when subjected to performance testing.
Conclusion: I really liked the Armor A90 when it was reviewed , and my opinion of it has only improved over time. The Armor A30 is another top-notch product in the series. While its assembly quirks can be a little difficult to work with at first, those are quickly overcome.
