It’s something you bump into all the time: You’ll be testing out a nice case only to find that the front I/O panel has just USB 2.0 ports, with no USB 3.0 to be found. It seems like a smallish detail until you plug in a USB 3.0 device and find you’re limited to USB 2.0 performance.

BitFenix gets it and is upgrading more of its cases to USB 3.0 (while leaving a couple of USB 2.0 ports for good measure). The BitFenix Shinobi, Shinobi Window, and Colossus Window cases will now all ship with two USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 ports.

Yes, it’s a slight upgrade, but it’s a welcome one indeed.


Critically-acclaimed Shinobi and Colossus Window get even better with two USB 3.0 ports

(BitFenix Design Lab, March 29, 2012) - BitFenix is pleased to announce that two of our most popular chassis, Shinobi and Colossus Window, are being upgraded to SuperSpeed USB 3.0. With this new upgrade, users will be able to connect their SuperSpeed devices right out of the box and enjoy enhanced speed and performance.

"Our vision is one of constant improvement," says BitFenix Product Manager David Jarlestedt. "This latest upgrade for our award-winning Shinobi and Colossus Window brings these models to the world of USB 3.0 for added flexibility and performance for BitFenix fans."

With this new upgrade, Shinobi, Shinobi Window and Colossus Window will all be equipped with two USB 3.0 ports and two USB 2.0 ports:

Shinobi (USB 3.0 Ports x 2, USB 2.0 Ports x 2)
Shinobi Window (USB 3.0 Ports x 2, USB 2.0 Ports x 2)
Colossus Window (USB 3.0 Ports x 2, USB 2.0 Ports x 2)

Winning a combined 80 awards and positive reviews worldwide, these two models are some of the most celebrated PC cases on the market today.

This company has some awesome new cases for sale. If I won one of ~their~ cases, I'd keep it forever.

I really like the Survivor the most.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

Whenever I see that Colossus chassis it is one of those that cases that make it hard to decide which one I like better the window or non-window version and the color scheme can be a brain freeze too.  anyhow that Colossus chassis just reminds of the Krell from Forbidden Planet for one reason or just 'cuz.
