The last time we looked at a SilverStone Lascala chassis was back in 2006 when reviewing the SilverStone LC20M, which boasted an aluminum front panel, plenty of room for storing extra hard drives, and even a VFD panel with IR receiver. We are back today though with the Lascala series as we explore the LC13-E, which promises next-generation cooling performance, a highly compatible chassis layout, magnificent front panel design, and at a price that most can afford.

Of the many SilverStone cases we have looked at over the years across all of their different product families, one of the common traits to all of them have been their reliable packaging. We have never received a damaged chassis from SilverStone as they use a sufficient amount of foam around the chassis and are encased inside a plastic bag for added protection. Receiving the SilverStone Lascala LC13-E was no different with it arriving safely. Included in a separate box are the LC13-E user's manual and a bag containing all of the mounting hardware. The exterior of the product packaging is rather conservative and just shows a picture of the chassis along with listing the basic features. For the LC13-E the chassis is available in silver and black versions; we are looking at the latter model today.
