In Win Diva Case Review

Without exceptions, when we think of a computer case with a unique design invariable we think of a macho-themed product, usually military-inspired. Sensing that girls were being left behind by the case manufacturers, In Win decided to release Diva, a very (very!) small case and very (very!) girly front panel, featuring a big Swarovski crystal as a power button. While straight guys will hate this case, girls (and probably er… “very happy” guys) will love it. Let’s see why.

When we are kids, we guys get 12-color crayon boxes (maybe 24 or 36 if your parents want to spoil you). Girls, on the other hand, the small crayon box they get has maybe 120 colors. That’s why they usually know name of colors we didn’t even know they existed. With Diva it couldn’t be different. What we guys would call pink, “beige almost golden” and black, girls will call “fuchsia red,” “champagne gold” and “starry black.” As you can guess, these are the color options for the Diva front panel. We are going to review the pink – excuse me, fuchsia red – version.

To better understand how small Diva is, nothing better to put it side by side with a standard mid-tower case. In Figure 1, you can see the Diva product box compared to the box of a standard mid-tower case and, in Figure 2, Diva compared to a mid-tower case.

Diva measures only 10 7/8” x 5.25” x 10 1/8” (27.6 x 13.3 x 25.7 cm) and weighs 7 ½ lbs (3.4 kg), supporting mini ITX and mini DTX motherboards. On Figures 3 and 4 you can have an overall look from Diva. There is a small mesh on the left panel, but it can’t be used for installing a fan.
