SilverStone Primera PM01 Review

SilverStone Primera PM01 Review


They say first impressions count, and if that’s the case then the the new Primera From SilverStone is off to a racing start.  Finished in high gloss black or white and with styling cues taken from luxury sports car design the Primera certainly seems to have a bit of va-va voom about it.  But style is nothing without substance, so the Primera will still have to have it where it counts, and what better way to to see whether this is a racer or a wreck than to have a quick gander at the vital statistics.
