Basically, how big of a case do you want. The Armor is a full tower, and it's frggin' huge.

The Armor Jr is a mid tower.

Seeing as you are asking for opinions, (IMO) the Tt Armor Jr. is ugly. If you want a mid sized tower from Tt go for the Tsunami. The full sized Armor if OK, but it needs proper doors like the Kandalf (which is what I went for in my main rig. I would prefer it to be bigger though.)

Anyway, a case is a personal choice. If you like the Jr. go for it - you will be happy with it.

Hmmm. Should have refreshed the page after leaving it for soo long. The Armor may p*** you off as the doors need to be opened to put a CD in etc. Proper doors make the case quieter for a plus.
