Good points:
Very sexy case, works great for media computer. Compact.
Bad points:
Handles on top and bottom feel plasticy, could probably snap under weight. There isnt much room left in the case after you have installed everything. Its quite hard to fit everything in.

Gareth,

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Stunning value and a wealth of possibilities. Remember you can also buy a side window panel now and change the covers. So it's only a matter of time until it's re-named the iProdigy.
Bad points:
Really needs a fan controller because of the lack of itx board fan headers.

It would also be nice if they could have made it possible to mount the optical drive in the bottom and turn the front cover upside down. Maybe in V2.0.

Also the room for fans and radiators in the top is a little crowded.

Richard, Sheffield Web professional, hobbyist enthusiast

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Well laid out. It's a pretty case, and people have mentioned the flex in the handles - well, there is flex, which is demonstrated in the Bitfenix official video, but it's certainly strong enough to carry the machine by. The case itself is pretty damn rugged in structure, and everything's laid out nicely so it's compact but I had room to put a beast of a graphics card in. The access points are well thought-out, so while it's very snug inside with a little effort you can access components well enough.

I was recommended this case by the excellent tested.com computer build video on Youtube. Good nerd watching, if you want a tour of this case.
Bad points:
There's some wobble in the stand, which is fine, but I'd rather there wasn't. There's access to plug in jumpers and so forth, but you may end up dismantling the whole thing to get at the motherboard. But it's a portable mini ITX case, so what do you want? :)

Also known as: BitFenix Prodigy, Bitfenix Prodigy Black

 

Manufacturer's Description

Meticulously crafted and beautifully engineered, Prodigy redefines the Mini-ITX chassis. The compact housing is suspended by handles made with BitFenix FyberFlex Composite for easy portability and maximum shock absorption. On the inside, our modular FlexCage gives you the flexibility to install up to five 3.5" hard disks or 2.5" SSDs, or remove it entirely to fit up to 240mm watercooling radiators and long graphics cards. For added flexibility, additional SSD locations are also included, and a choice of Midnight Black or Arctic White with interchangeable front facades mean Prodigy will suit your individual style. With tool-free convenience, two USB 3.0 ports, filtered intakes, and proprietary BitFenix SofTouch Surface Treatment, Prodigy is the compact case with no compromises.
