PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH





In Win has given the Alpha 360 a very sleek and unusual shape. While there's no doubt that we're looking at a computer case here, the vertical corners are rounded and, when viewed from the side, the 360 has a trapezoidal shape, being slightly wider at the top. Unlike most cases, the Alpha features a rear bezel that gives it a 360 degree finished look.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


The top is flat, with grooves running across it. All the external surfaces are molded plastic covering a Japanese steel chassis. As we move along we'll see what the In Win designers have done to make this unusual shape work.



One of the most distinctive features of the Alpha 360 is its front door. Instead of opening to one side or the other, pressing the bottom of the door activates a mechanism that lifts the door up and back over the top of the case, giving full access to the front bays. We'll be discussing this feature in more detail during installation and testing.



There is no reset button available on the 360, but a power button, two USB, a single FireWire and audio connections are provided. The barely visible window below the power button is used by the optional MCE kit for IR remote control functions. This kit was not provided in the review sample, nor was I able to find much information about it.
