    Its so close... just the IN WIN badge on the front, other than that it looks lovely.

    Looks kinda like an LCD panel though, that would be alright.

    yeah that logo and glowing ports ruins the look in my opinion too, a nice simple small silver logo would have been so much nicer

    Let's hope In Win's idea of "affordable" is somewhat close to the general public's idea of "affordable". I really like this case. I've been planning a blue/white build for a while.

    Do yourself a favour and buy a USB one I got one and it sits in a box for ~360 days of the year.

    The point is that it's so rare that I need it, there is no point it being permanently connected using power and taking up space

    Fair enough but I still don't think case manufacturers should take away the option of having one.

    There are plenty of cases that I have them. I don't think case manufacturers should have to cater for the tiny percentage of people who still actually need optical drives

    Pricing is 100€ and available from 8. June, according to a german website(caseking.de).

    Edit: I can't post links as a new user, so just enter in the search box 'inwin 303'

    Re: In Win launches the 'premium affordable' 303 PC chassis

    I'm not a fan of tempered glass in cases it's just too heavy, decent acrylic is fine esp if they used cast rather than the more standard extruded.

    However I've got a major issue with the layout, I can see the concept but it looks like it's really badly done.
    sealed front and sides (sort of) very open venting over the whole bottom being the only intake, then a separate cell area in the top with fans or rad on the side of it.
    This way the exhaust fans are internally mounted which should help to reduce noise, however the vents on the upper right side which this cell is supposed to exhaust out of look very small (hard to tell exactly as there's no direct images of the right side), so the main area for heat exhaust would be through the psu.
    While a good psu can take a bit of heat it's still not the best thing for a psu long term.
    Also it's in major need of an easy to access dust filter on the bottom of the case.

    It looks fine at first but after its been cleaned a few times it gets a bit swirly. I know because my case has an acrylic top and front panel and I have looked into replacing it with glass.
