Pros: slim, silent, fast, and (hopefully) reliable... whats not to like?
Cons: I payed full price so it wasn't cheap
Other Thoughts: probably should have gone for a 480GBREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: works, cheap, good looking, low profile
Other Thoughts: apparently, removing the sticker voids the warranty... not enough to deduct an egg but they would look cooler without the white stickers on themREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: BitFenix Prodigy Midnight Black Steel / Plastic Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case
Pros: all black everything!!!... nice hardware assortment (also black), 2 quiet fans included, room for 2x120 radiator (see cons), room for long video card, plenty of drive bays, etc... lots of ventilation (see cons)
Cons: no mounting holes for 2x140 radiator... to install a 2x120 radiator requires removing the 5.25" drive bay which also requires removing 3 x 3.5" HDD bays... plastic handles do feel a bit on the flimsy side.
Other Thoughts: Between the mesh front and open side panel, it's over-kill on the ventilation... I'm seeing the newer bitfenix cases with 2 solid side panels which I wish this one had (mine has the side vent). I do have the option of buying another side panel with a clear window (not too cheap), but not a solid one... and since they are all coming with solid ones now, I doubt this is going to change but maybe bitfenix can hook a brother up...
Also, be aware that this case really limits the size of your PSU... it's just barely too small for my RM650... for PSUs right on the boarder, this can be solved using some mobo standoffs to extend the screw holes in the back. If bitfenix had included some of these (in black) that would have made this case a lot awesomer.
