A look at the BitFenix Shinobi Window and Shinobi cases (video)

BitFenix attacking the mid-range chassis market aggressively

Earlier on today I stopped by the BitFenix headquarters here in Taipei and spoke with product manager David about the Taiwanese company's new range of mid-range computer cases that are due to go on sale midway through April in the United States and Europe.

 

 

Shinobi is the name and there are two versions: the standard Shinobi coming in at $59 USD and the Shinobi Window coming in at $69 USD. You would be mistaken in thinking that the only difference between the two is that one has a side window and the other one doesn't. While that is partly true, the window version is actually more expensive since it also includes a well designed tool-free design for the hard drives and optical drives.

These cases are made of a nice soft rubbery material that is easy on the eye and feels great. The design is simple with no fancy lights or anything like that, but still manages to maintain a good level of style. Internally most of the important chassis design points can be ticked off with good color coding, impressive cable management, a CPU cut out for easily changing coolers without the need of having to remove the motherboard and more.

 

In the video above David gives us a good introduction to both cases. As you may know, BitFenix is the new kid on the block when it comes to cases and this is their first entry into the mid-range market after the launch of their high-end Colossus and upper mid-range Survivor cases last year. They are attacking this $50 - $70 USD case market rather aggressively and in my opinion they should do well with both these new cases which I saw today. We'll have a review up online probably around the same time as they launch next month.
