Inwins styled cases are notorious for bold interesting designs targeted to gamers. These chassis range from small to full size and are usually filled with all the cool new features out.

Well lets take a closer look to see if you will be getting the most bang for your BUC...

The BUC was very nice indeed on both the exterior and interior. Lets start with what I like with the interior. First, the nice black look made it not plain but sleek. The case can support five hard drives being installed at once which is cool to have even though one of them isn't hot-swappable. .Also the BUC was built with a tool-less design which I for one love as it makes for a nice and easy installation and gives a better look too. Now on the exterior I vote yea. It has a nice look with a nice black finish and see through mesh panel sections. Also on the external is a locked panel for the hot-swappable drives which is a nice feature to have.
Would I recommend it. Yes I would it is a good case for those gamers looking for an inexpensive mid-tower with some cooling and extra features.
