The budget mid tower case market used to be filled with cheaply made, under designed junk but if recent trends are any indication, those days are well behind us. BitFenix may not be a household brand just yet but their new Shinobi case could be their ticket to success. Priced at under $85 and sporting a long list of premium features, it certainly looks like it could succeed where others have failed.

The Shinobi is particularly interesting due to the wide variety of configurations it can be found in. Along with the usual solid and windowed side panel options, BitFenix has added black and white colors to their lineup which are applied on both the interior and exterior of this budget-friendly case. Additionally, each color is has a "soft touch" finish in order to minimize scratches and scuffs.

One of the main concerns in the budget case market is corner cutting but it looks like BitFenix stayed true to their word when it came to delivering a high quality yet affordable gaming enclosure.
