Comparing the performance level of several products is something that i really like to do since that way it's far easier to tell which one is the best out of the bunch. However although performance is a very crucial factor lately i have also started to compare old product versions against their newest ones in an effort to spot the various differences between them and see if the latest versions are actually an improvement over their predecessors. As promised almost a month ago today we bring you an in-depth comparison between the "old" Level 10 (VL30001N1Z) and the new Level 10 GT (VN10001W2N) by Thermaltake and BMW Group Designworks USA.
Since the beginning of Thermaltake in 1999, they have been at the forefront of creating new and exciting products at a time where most computer users were provided little to no choices for components that may seem irrelevant, but in reality crucial to the performance of a PC. Thermaltake Server Series solutions, with years of thermal experience and industry leadership, sets its goal on reforming total thermal management in server segment by formulating the perfect mixture of versatility, efficiency and thermal management with each respective server product category: Rackmount Chassis, Server Fixed & Redundant Power Supply and Server CPU Cooling Management Solutions. With its comprehensive line of products available, it enables Thermaltake's core customers to enjoy a one-stop-shop experience, reduce product design-in evaluation period and most important of all, flawless integration process. Each of Thermaltake's strengths enables its customer to focus on their core business while taking advantage of the skills and efficiency of a single thermal management solution partner.
For me the original Level 10, although not perfect is easily the best looking PC Case i have ever seen (Thanks to BMW i bet) and i doubt that will change anytime soon. Quality and features-wise it is up there right next to the best ones made by Lian-Li which is something that really says a lot. Its "successor" the Level 10 GT keeps some of the features found in the original Level 10 but as you will all see later on there's simply no comparison quality-wise between these two cases (expected from a case priced less than half of what the original cost), although in the end it all comes down to personal taste and since some have actually told me that they would prefer the Level 10 GT over the Level 10 I am anxious to find out why.
