The TJ08-E weighs 5.3 kg or 11.7 lb and measures 21.0 x 37.4 x 38.5 cm or 8.3 x 14.7 x 15.2 inches (W x H x D) making the total case volume approximately 30.2 L. The side panels are approximately 0.6 mm thick at their thinnest points, so they have some flex. It's on par with most $80~$100 cases.

The TJ08-E's front bezel is composed of brush aluminum while the rest of the body is old fashioned steel. The power and reset buttons are not as solid as we'd like, supported mainly at the center. There is a small fan speed switch on the right side just below an opening for the intake fan's removable air filter.

Magnets keep power supply the air filter in place, but is easily dislodged.

The bottom of cases are usually unremarkable but the TJ08-E has a couple of notable features. Near the front are screws for securing a 2.5" drive and on the left are adjustable mounting points for a stand that helps support large CPU heatsinks.

As the motherboard is flipped compared to a standard layout, opening up the left side panel reveals the underside of the removable motherboard tray. There are a few spots for looping twist-ties and zip-ties and large holes at the edges for thicker cables.

The hard drive cage sits directly in front of the bottom two thirds of the intake fan, secured to the external 3.5" drive bay on the case floor. The cage hangs over the motherboard tray slightly.
