Well, the door on the soprano had the bottom hinge crack and break on me within the first 6 months and the Typhoon, on top of being freaking huge for the cooling it offered did not cool as well as the Thermalright XP-120 I got second hand from a friend. Not to mention it was quieter than the typhoon. I think the typhoon got it's name from the typhoon of noise it produced to assault your ears imho.
Other than the door issue on the soprano and the fact that the side panel felt flimsy, it was a decent enough case.
Not to mention that I also tried their "Silent" fans, those Silent Cat fans were anything but. And despite the TT Volcano being a most excellent heatsink, after you lapped the crap out of it, you had to lap the crap out of it before it was good enough.
It just seems that almost every TT product I tried in 2005/2006 required work to make it a finished product, it never held up to it's promises or it just plain started to fall the hell apart after a few months of normal use. Then I knew people that tried the TT Big Water when it came out and they had constant pump failures and the things were noisy as hell when they did work.
I haven't touched a TT product since the 3rd quarter of 2006 and haven't even thought about it since because I lost all trust in them.
