With LAN parties becoming increasingly prevalent, and even non-technical elites beginning to understand their concept and even attending these events, the need for viable and safe transportation of computer components and accessories are continuing to rise. CaseAce GearGrip first struck the scene with various harnesses and retail products designed to transport any computer chassis as well as CRT and LCD monitors. Since that time, we have seen numerous manufacturers with similar designs, and some that have attempted to create a viable housing for the system, but have ended up failing miserably. Today we have yet another potential product to present that is designed primarily to transport Small Form Factor computers and related peripherals. This product comes from a manufacturer we have become quite familiar with over the years and that is SilverStone Technology. Will the SilverStone Sugo Pack turn into simply another packaging method for transporting computer related components, or does it possess other traits to make it worth purchasing? We have the Sugo Pack here today and have quite a few thoughts to share today about this product.
· Large main compartment with double-zipper opening
· Convenient front pocket with double-zipper opening
· Durable lightweight design with strategic padded protections
· Removable shoulder strap with reinforced stitching
· Piggyback strap on backside to conveniently stack on top of a carry-on
· Black metal hardware, self-repairing zippers
· Interior SUGO stable straps with Velcro
· Interior and exterior zippered pockets provide added organization
· Durable Velcro handle wrap
· Distinctive SilverStone logo
Yes, this is certainly the non-traditional review for Phoronix, but upon looking at this product on the SilverStone website, we could not resist but to try out this bag for ourselves. Anyhow, this SFF enclosure bag shipped inside of a rather large cardboard container. The outside of this packaging contained the same color scheme we have been accustom to seeing on other SilverStone products, and the useful information on this package is simply a short description and list of features/specifications. Opening up the package, inside was the bag, which was neatly compressed inside of a plastic container. No product pamphlet or anything similar was included. One of the advantages right from the get-go is that the Sugo Pack has over some of its competing harnesses is that this SilverStone product encloses the SFF chassis in its entirety leaving no room for possible scratches during transportation or other damaging affects.
