Nice review, I always love the temperature comparison tests for cases. Couple nitpicky things though... the link above is to pg 4, and on the testing page, last paragraph, he said "weary" instead of "wary." Catching little typos like that though should show I loved reading the review :D Thanks for the hard work!
