PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH


At present, the Mozart Tx, in aluminum with windows, is widely available at online retailers for around $250 US. For this rather princely sum, here's what you get.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 



The two large windows on each side of the Tx are protected by plastic film during shipping. While some cases on the market have an aluminum carcass with a plastic front, the front panel on the Tx is aluminum as well.



I also like the location and treatment of the front ports. The layout is clean and simple, just as I prefer. Four USB2 ports are flanked by a Firewire and audio ports. Also included is an eSATA port and its power socket. External SATA devices are becoming more common and this arrangement makes transfers and backups just that much easier.


The small window just below the ports is for the optional Thermaltake Media LAB and remote for Windows MCE.



The black mesh inserts contrast nicely with the brushed aluminum bezel and give the Tx a modern look without going over-the-top. A large chrome power button is accompanied by a smaller, recessed reset button. Red and blue LEDs indicate HDD activity and power status. I like the look.



Two large, acrylic windows dominate the swing-out doors on each side of the Tx. Latches, top and bottom, secure the door and thumbscrews are also provided. The screened area in the right door's lower window is an air inlet for the power supply. We'll see more of this feature later.
