PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH



The front has a sleek, clean look. Both the door and bezel are made out of plastic, but it is fairly thick and sturdy. The only buttons present are the triangular power button and a red door open button to the left of it. Power and HDD LED's are located to the right of the power button.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


For the door open button to work, power has to be supplied via a Molex connector (more on this later). Otherwise, there is a “rescue” button on the side panel that when pressed allows the door to be manually lifted up and over the top. It reminded me of an Alpha 360 case.



With the door open we see four external 5.25” bays and two external 3.5” bays.



In keeping with the clean look, In Win decided to move the front panel connections around to the side. Starting at the top and moving down are two eSATA ports, firewire, two USB, and audio ports. This setup works fine if space isn't an issue, but it might be inconvenient for those who don't have a lot of room to spare.



The B2 bomber on the side panel isn't just for show; it's actually an air intake. I gotta hand it to In Win – this is a clever way of making something functional look cool at the same time. Other things to note here are two clips (rather than thumbscrews) that pop the side panel off.
