Sharkoon T28 preview: A bright computer case

Sharkoon is a brand we don't get to see that often, but it's been around for some time. The manufacturer recently sent us a sample of the T28 computer chassis. It's a pretty and affordable case available in red, green and blue. These colours are found in the interior finish and the lighting of the three built-in fans, which you can see through the window in the side panel. For an average price of £45, that's a nice set of features. Reason enough for us to take a closer look at this Sharkoon T28 chassis, in our case the red version.

The affordable price tag of the T28 places it in the lower mid-range bracket, but for that market it has an uncharacteristically full set of features with the three fans, a USB 3.0 port and a side-window.

It's not a particularly large cabinet, with measurements of 44 x 20 x 48cm and a volume of 44l. This makes it one of the smaller chassis we've tested, and its 6.5kg weight makes it pretty light for a steel case.

The Sharkoon T28 is pretty compact for a case that houses a full-size ATX motherboard. The front largely consists of mesh built into a plastic panel. On each side there are the power and reset buttons. At the top you will find one USB 3.0 port, three USB 2.0 ports and audio jacks.

The top and back don't have much going on. The top is just plain steel without any features, while the distinguishing features on the back are the red covers on the expansion slots and the red fan visible through a grill. What also stands out is the USB 3.0 cable that apparently has to be put through one of the openings for the water cooling tubes. You can read the rest of Sharkoon T28 preview on
