Summary: This is a good case. I'm glad I got this one rather than a smaller one, I hated the idea of being too cramped when building it, or having a drive die because it was sitting on a power supply.
Pros: Very nice looking case. There is enough room to stuff all my goodies into it and room to spare. Most of the interior edges are rounded or blunted so, as long as you're not careless, no injuries! The power supply is tucked nicely to the side so no worries there. Other than that, nice tight lines, ...
Cons: As other reviewers have pointed out, you pretty much have to remove the drive cage before you do anything with the case. Pulled out, it opens up pretty much everything else. The existing case fan is pretty average, but works. If this will become an HTPC, replace it with a silent fan.
Summary: If you are building an office PC, a small PC to connect to your television, or a budget PC for the home, you want this case to put it in! This case is perfect for "always on" PCs that use low-power or ULV processors (the AMD Socket FM1 chips and boards are exceptionally good choices in this case.
Pros: I strongly prefer the IN WIN BP671 case and have built many machines using it; however, when the BP671 goes out of stock, the BP655 is what I get. The main reason is only difference between the two is the design of the front plastic bezel; the metal chassis is identical and is easy to work with o...
Cons: Assembly and disassembly order is annoying unless you know about it already. The most critical parts are that the optical drive must always be the very last thing to go in and the first to come out, and the drive cage assembly usually has to be removed to do anything involving the hard drives sto...
Summary: These are great little cases overall aside from minor nit picks. I've used like 20 of them so far & never had quality issues aside from PSU's & fans as noted in CONS. I wish they offered it with a 80+ certified PSU not necessarily just to save some energy (how much is really being saved at 200W max)...
Pros: Very compact Nice quality overall (See cons) Cool design/looks Near silent (really CPU fan makes more noise than case fans sometimes)
Cons: Not best PSU (Not 80+ & seem to fail ~ 18 months) Case fan get noisy or fail in 12-24 months Should have SSD holes (so no need to drill own or use 3.5 adapter) Wish quality replacement PSU's were more readily available (-1 egg for these otherwise it'd be 5 easy)
Summary: No surprises - only the standard ITX compromises: case is 1.4" wider than my Morex mini-ITX case but it uses desktop components which is what I wanted - extra width is needed for these.
Pros: My favorite case from years ago was an In-Win. Chose this case because it supports full size optical & hard drives, standard TFX power supply, and is well designed - happy with my choice. Power supply is still working well - so a very successful build.
Cons: I replaced the cheap original fan with a "quiet" PWM model. Originally I was baffled what to do with the ".8" HDD drive bay which is too thin for any HDD that I have. Found a Vantec 3.5" to 2.5" HDD to SSD converter tray which fits perfectly - so now I have an SSD drive bay! (should come with thi...
Pros: My a10-7800 stays under 45C even when its overclocked and under load. Small dimensions are close to the ps4/xbox one so I'd run dual graphics with a low profile card in this case to try to match those systems. Fans are really quiet, even under load.
Cons: The hard drive bay has to be removed to add a hard drive and it has four screws holding it in where one screw is buried under the power supply wires, I would have greatly appreciated if they used 1 screw and had it slide out to the left when facing the faceplate.
Pros: Good cabinet build and layout. Excellent ventilation with quiet fans
Cons: The top lid of the unit was a tight fit and I couldn't grip the cover properly to slide it off. had to use a screw driver to pry open the unit. The sheet metal frame could have been thicker as it seems to deform rather easily. Took an egg off for that.
Decent quality, not robust enough, PSU and fan are junk

Summary: In-Win makes very good quality cases, with well thought out design and layout. However the inexplicable skimpiness on the sheetmetal simply compromises the entire case. For those that never move their machines, this might be ok, but in any environment where PCs are moved around often or handled...
Pros: Good quality design, fabrication and paint job. Compact, yet roomy inside. The 100mm height allows for some nicer heatsinks to fit. Accepts standard TFX power supplies (like Seasonic SS-300 / 350 TGW / TGM).
Cons: Sheet metal is too thin: 0.6mm all around. The motherboard plate feels even thinner and for some unknown reason is sandwiched to the outer shell - why? Would it hurt to make it a single piece of substantial thickness? As it is, it feels like a paper membrane - push it with your finger and it move...
Summary: 24 pin mobo power connector on included supply was actually 20+4 for compatibility, plus the cpu 4+4 12V connector. I only used the 4 pin cpu connecter and left the add-on +4 dangling. I have not experienced any power supply fan noise that others had.
Pros: small, black, front usb+audio, power supply on side to avoid cpu heatsink space issues.
Cons: a few area around the dive cage have sharp edges. Have to remove the drive cage to screw hard drive into it. 80mm case fan was a little loud.
