In Win Buc Review

Conclusion:

So the IN WIN Buc held up well in testing and also hit home with some great features. I really liked the black interior of the case, which is always a nice touch when compared to a plain inside. What really struck me as a nice feature was the ability to have up to five hard drives installed at once, even though one of them isn't able to be hot plugged due to the lack of a slot for the fifth drive. A good case is never complete without a few fans to keep it cool and the Buc didn't disappoint with its three fans. The featured tool-less solutions were a nice touch since they allow you to install 3.5/2.5" hard drives, as well as 5.25" drives and expansion slot devices with relative ease. What ultimately made Buc an all around good case was its externally-accessible hard drive tray, which allows you to get drives out and swap them without having to remove the side panel. Although it is nice that IN WIN included a locking mechanism for this, ultimately it doesn't really secure much, as one only needs to take off the side panel to have keyless access to your hard drives. With all these great features, you must be wondering how much it costs. Well a quick search reveals not too many etailers actually carry it besides the IN WIN eStore, where the case retails for a rather nice $110. So if you are looking for a mid-tower case with some space for drives and fans, you really should consider adding this one to your list.

 

Pros:

  • All-black interior
  • Support for five hard drives
  • Comes with three fans with room for two more
  • Tool-less solutions
  • Heatsink/Waterblock Hole
  • Externally-accessible hard drives

 

Cons:

  • Lock for externally-accessible drives really doesn't serve much of a purpose without a case lock too
  • Only four of the five hard drives are hot-swappable
