  • Summary: I got this case solely based on price and for the fact it holds 8 3.5" drives natively. I installed 6 drives with the only problem being the retention clips - it leaves the drives loose. I was concerned that the vibration would be noisy or cause some sort of long-term damage to the drives. I used some screws to hold the drives in and just removed the clips.
  • Pros: Price, windowed side panel, includes 2 fans
  • Cons: Tool-less 3.5" drives are too loose when installed, fan filters retention, instructions a bit vague

  • Summary: This was my first build, and it was slightly more complicated because I had to cut out some of the steel on the interior to support my h100i corsair cooler. I knew I would have to before buying the case but I love the bitfenix shinobi's look so I did some digging and got the Idea from youtube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nDM4YmQYv-8) and everything is working extremely well, cable management was great and everything looks sleek!
  • Pros: Very nice, spacious, and good cable management. I was able to make my first build with very little trouble. Not expensive at all for a windowed case!
  • Cons: Didn't support h100i cooler, had to tear out the hard drive bays and bottom optical drive bay.

  • Summary: When picking out my case, I chose it based on looks first, features second, and price third. I decided on the Shinobi because it was a great balance of these things. The first thing that I about the Shinobi was the color options: Black or White. They’re both lovely, but I was brawn to the white since it’s a less common case color, without sticking out in a bad way. The case has a very sleek form factor, with clean lines, a soft power finish (no fingerprints!
  • Pros: stylish, affordable, good size, color options, easy install
  • Cons: too-bright LED, confusing manual

  • Summary: Never heard of Bitfenix before, but once I saw the white Shinobi case, I know this is the case I want! I like the size, it has screw-less design and USB 3.0 front ports. White color looks so cool!
  • Pros: Good case, screw-less design, USB 3.0 front ports.
  • Cons: None.

  • Summary: Now, this is how a budget case should be done. This is one of the best under 100 bucks cases you can currently get. It has amazing cooling, and looks fantastic. The white color scheme enhances its already great looks. It is very easy to work in, and offers plenty of room for cable management. If you want a case in the under 100 price bracket, this is the one to get. I give it 5/5 stars.
  • Pros: Awesome looks, great cooling, quality construction
  • Cons: None

  • Summary: A great value case with more than enough room and features for your average build. Plastic parts are a little flimsy (e.g. front and top panels) and the case even came with one of the plastic snaps (that connect the top to the case) broken, though a little super-glue fixed the problem. The rest of the case (what you handle during most of the build) is very sturdy.
  • Pros: Great value, sturdy build, decent air flow options, sleek look with great finish, decent cable management options, intuitive and functional tool-less features.
  • Cons: The plastic parts are a little flimsy, soft-touch finish is prone to finger prints. The USB 3.0 ports are not correctly aligned in the openings (but they still work great).

  • Summary: You definitely get what you pay for with this case. It does include a mix of highs and lows. I went over most of the ones I can think about in the Pros and Cons. The only one I want to touch on again is the airflow. Not a lot of air comes in through the small vent holes in the front.
  • Pros: Slick looking, contemporary design. Interesting finish to the front and top. Some nice options on a case that falls on the lower end of the price scale.
  • Cons: You get what you pay for. Not a huge amount of airflow especially from the front. Filters could be better. The finish on the top and sides shows oil and fingerprints easily.
