Specifications, Availability and Pricing
This Mini-ITX chassis has a square steel frame inside of the plastic and FyberFlex composite handles that take that square box and give it a rounded and smoothed over appearance. All of the four FyberFlex handles along with the center portion of the front bezel also receive SofTouch coating. The all white chassis, both inside and out, only has a ring of black trim on the front to go with the black BitFenix logo and a mesh panel on the top to detract from an otherwise stark white chassis. The coolest part about the exterior has to be the FyberFlex feet. These things are literally built flexible to "bounce" or absorb shocks from lugging it around and tossing it up onto a table, since the Prodigy is small and easily portable.
If the looks alone don't get you going, what happens inside should. There is a total of over 26 liters of space internally if everything was out of the chassis. As it is shipped there are a few things taking up that space. On the front there is a single, removable, 5.25" drive bay with a twin-cage system for the five 3.5" drive bays. Now 2.5" storage drives can fit in these bays too, but there is a twist here. Remove both sections of the hard drive bays and two more 2.5" drive mounting locations appear. One other cool feature is the plastic rack on the inside of the right door panel. This is screwed into the steel and offers yet another two places to go ahead and mount 2.5" drives. Don't worry if you are a little confused, I will show them all to you soon enough. In the left two thirds of the chassis there is the horizontal motherboard tray for Mini-ITX based motherboards with the PSU mounted conveniently underneath of it. What really takes the cake is that you can load in any dual slot card up to 320mm long and with the modularity of this design it actually leaves you with dual 120mm radiator possibilities internally.
As I look around, I don't see too many locations currently in the US where you can buy the Prodigy. I was able to locate it at Newegg.com for $79.99 before shipping. For what is contained within and the stunning appeal of the aesthetics the BitFenix Prodigy, it is going to make tons of people search frantically for a Mini-ITX board just to have the opportunity to tinker inside and see what sort of good you can pack inside of one.
While I won't be loading up any water cooling gear in the build, I hope to show you that a little time and consideration of the parts you choose, this case can work just as well as a media rig with tons of drives next to the TV just as well as it can be that "sleeper" that no one expects to be packing a GTX 680 or an HD 7950 like I am going to do.
