The packaging was sufficient; a large sealed cardboard box. Inside the case was shrink-wrapped and secured in a styrofoam shipping mold. The wrapping was a good idea since the idea of a scratch on a nice new blue case would not be tolerated. Protective foam was taped in place to keep the window scratch-free.

Specifications Drive Bays: 10 External 5 x 5. The package is fairly light — the case inside is very lightweight.
Styrofoam chunks guard the top and bottom of the Thermaltake WinGo VA case from receiving damage during the shipping process. Yes, Thermaltake provides WinGo styled stickers that can be placed on the sides of the case. The manual is very clear and goes through what is included and how one would install a system in this case. This case features a 1. Typical of Xaser lines of cases, there is a front drive door that is constructed from plastic and the front of the case also has decorative designs, including the EL logo.
Five 5. One of the nice features of this case lies on the exterior of the door. There are two fan controller knobs that you can use for fans inside the interior.
This is very handy for users — fans can be controlled with the knobs without having to open the door to access a third party fan controller. However, this length means the case requires plenty of desk space.
The aluminum metal has a good-brushed aluminum look and is quite resistant to fingerprints. The side window is covered with plastic to prevent any damages during shipping. The window is very big and of great quality. A Thermaltake logo sits on the bottom of the plexiglass.
The window sits flat on the aluminum side panel to ensure strength. There is a large handle to help remove the side door from the case. The rear of the case is as any other case. There is room for one included 90x90x25mm fan and it is covered by a bigger than usual stamped fan grill.
The side panels have thumbscrews. The case feathers re-usable PCI extension bays. Speaking of fans, this case is loaded with fans.

This step by step approach is quite good for novice users looking to build their first system, but experts will like the clear easy to read diagrams that a cut above those found with other cases.
