I live in a decent sized apartment but travel back and forth between states so portability was a huge desire with my case. The BitFenix Prodigy M case fit my need of an easy to move case, and a window. The insides glow up nicely during operation and allows for super easy quick looks inside to see how my components are doing. Pro: This case really brought out the components of my build and the handles feel safe to travel with. Con: There is a very small amount of room for cable management in this case. Slow and steady during build.

limited room for cablemanagement and not a lot of space to work in makes this case pretty hard if you don't exactly know what you're going to do and how you want to do it. But with a bit of build planning you can have a stylish yet functional microATX build. Even with it's relatively small form factor it can still fit a whole high end gaming build and still maintain decent airflow so overclocking is still an option. I choose the black edition because it has the mesh front pannel wich doesn't choke the PC.

An absolute disaster of a case. I've worked with dozens of cases for my builds in all kinds of different form factors, and this is probably the worst one I've ever built in. I thought about giving it two stars, because from certain angles, it looks good, but I can't justifiably do that with all of the glaring issues.
Let's cover the pros first: -The black version of this case is almost entirely high-quality wire mesh material. This makes it incredibly ventilated, so you won't have overheating problems.
-The case has some aesthetically pleasing loop-style legs that also lift it off of the floor or desk. This also aids in ventilation.
On to the cons:
-The BitFenix symbol on the front of the case was off-center, by almost an inch. I'm not crazy OCD, but it was wildly obvious that absolutely no time was put into making sure it was stuck on in the right place. I had to use a heat gun to get it off and move it to the right spot.
-The whole reason I got this case is because it has a CD/DVD drive bay. Putting a drive in this bay blocks off almost half of all the pins on the bottom of your motherboard. I was unable to connect my front USB ports, and the pins for the power/reset switches and LEDs BARELY fit. They probably bent a little just to fit.
-The motherboard is installed upside down. If it has any writing on it, it's gonna look stupid.
-If you want to install any 3.5" drives, or much less, the FOUR that it advertises, you have to either remove the fans on the bottom of the case, or install the case's removable drive rack RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE WINDOW. It looks so bad. It looks like the windowed side panel was put on the wrong side of the case on accident. However, both sides are almost completely blocked.
-The power supply has been moved to the front of the case, where the supply and all of its wires stick up vertically directly in front of the other half of the window on the side panel.
-The drive rack holds the hard drives with the wiring towards the window and is not reversible. The wires going to my hard drives are right in front of the window.
-There is literally no space for any cable management other than behind the mobo. Because everything is out in the open, it looks like a huge mess right in front of the window. The whole point of having a windowed case is nullified by the deplorable layout. The only way this case would work for someone is if you feel like spending a lot on a case and won't be using any hard drives, just an M.2 drive or something. Because the case advertises 4 3.5" drive bays, but fails to hide them anywhere, and because installing a CD/DVD drive blocks a good portion of the motherboard's pins (and the case's own front USB ports), and all the other cons, I give this case 1 star. What an absolute dumpster fire of a case.

Looking for a luggable case, this is MicroATX for future flexibility with a handle on top. The case actually came with 2 fans, one on the floor and one in back and that oneis an LED fan with a 2-pin connector.
Case has a single external slot for ODD. It can mount a bunch of different drives but biggest challenge was mounting a 3.5" HDD. I really wish I'd bought a 2.5" HDD instead. The 3.5" can theoretically be mounted on the floor next to the fan but unfortunately we could figure out how to secure it while having room to install the SATA cables. The only other choice was to install it in the vertical panel which obstructs the view through the clear side panel. If I'd had a 2.5" HDD those could have been slotted in the opaque side panel instead.
Power supply mounts at the front with the switch then accessible under the case. It has an internal power cable that routes the power plug to the back of the case.
The handles on top flex a bit when picked up, but hopefully they will hold up.
