As you can see, the front panels of both cases are absolutely identical, differing in color only. You can open them to install or replace devices in the external 5.25” and 3.5” bays.
There is a three-positional lock on the front of each case: 1) the decorative front door is open, 2) both the door and the front panel are open, and 3) both the door and the panel are closed.
The front panels of both system cases are almost the same, except for the metal brackets in unused bays. These brackets are fastened on screws in the Tsunami Dream whereas in the Soprano they are to be just broken off.
These two system cases also differ in the categories of users they are targeted at. The Tsunami Dream is a sober and elegant solution that would fit ideally into a formal office interior. The Soprano is a more traditional, home-oriented system case with a side window and an eye-catching appearance.
The shape of the side window of the Soprano model differs from the unassuming rectangle in the SViking. It is X-shaped and has Thermaltake’s traditional engraving of the corporative logotype and slogan. It is quite interesting to compare the Soprano with the Tsunami Dream since they represent two different, but equally clever approaches to decorating the side panel:
If you want a Tsunami Dream with a window or a Soprano without one, don’t worry – such modifications do exist, so your choice here in not limited at all.
The only thing I want to complain about is the lacquered panels of the Tsunami Dream. Your fingerprints are going to be only too visible on the black background, so you should handle this system case with great care or use the enclosed napkin often.
The rear panels are absolutely identical:
