Conclusion: If budget is a real constraint for stopping you to get an incredible chassis like BitFenix Colossus then you could probably put BitFenix Shinobi into your mind for consideration. This is not only about its low price (only at 59USD) but also its quality and features which are much better than other branded chassis in the same price range. There is no doubt that BitFenix Shinobi is definitely one of the best value of money chassis that you could find in the market.
Pros: + Well design with solid construction, + SorTouch surface, + Very affordable price, + CPU cooler cutout, + Plenty room for cooling improvement, + Water cooling ready, + Better corrosive resistance, + Dust filters
Cons: - Only come with single 120mm cooling fan, - Lacking of USB 3.0 on the front panel I/O
Summary: A brilliant case that is doing my brand new build justice, thank you BitFenix! Top quality and awesome. Plenty of space for large components, for example I have an Asus r9 290 directcuii in mine, which is a rather large and space consuming card!
Summary: Such a lovely case! The feel is brilliant, and the finish makes it look sophisticated. Also, the USB ports at the top are a true God-send. No more bumping into my USB keys and damaging them like a fool!
Summary: First off I would like to say this case is so good looking and the rubberized feel just gives it that classy finish. However, I opened it the day after it came and everything was going great until it came to inserting the MOBO. There were already 2 MOBO Hex screws in place on the case which i thought was strange but came to find I could not remove them and they wore down immediately making them impossible to remove.
Summary: The package arrived a day early which was great. In the package it does contain the Bitfenix Shinobi Window in White. However this is the 'core' edition which means that it does come with any fans, mesh strips or logo. Apart from that the 'core' edition comes with the usual: Manual, motherboard standoffs, screws...etc.
Summary: I received this case thinking it might not be all that great, but would do the job, but upon opening it, I was proved completely wrong. This case is fantastic, the rubberised coating (or at least that's what it feels like) makes it feel like a premium case and it looks sturdy and well put together. Inside, the positioning of the power supply at the bottom made it easier to install and easier to move the case as it is quite heavy.
Summary: I was originally going to take my current Bitfenix logo and spray paint it gold but instead I have decided to buy this. It fits perfectly and looks nice amongst my other gold PC parts on my Bitfenix Shinobi case.
Summary: It is everything I needed and there is more room for expansion. Just because this is a common misconception, the non-windowed case doesn't come with toolless drive bays or rubber grommets for internal cable management.
Summary: Looks great, plenty of space so good for a beginner, I will say the lack of a side vent means there can be a bit of a hotspot on the side cover, but the general airflow means it's not a great problem
