The BitFenix Shinobi is a nice-looking mid-tower case, with a rubber coating on its plastic parts which helps to avoid fingerprints, dubbed “SofTouch” by the manufacturer. It is available in two versions, either with a tinted transparent side window (USD 70), or with a solid side panel (USD 60). Let’s see if the Shinobi is a winner.
As previously mentioned, you have two options available on the left-side panel: either a solid state or a tinted transparent window supporting one 120 mm fan (not included). We are reviewing the second model, which is called Shinobi Window. Note that the version with a solid side panel is cheaper because it doesn’t come with the front fan or with the tool-less installation mechanisms for hard disk drives.
