2003 Winter Case Review Part 2: The ATX Avalanche

Inwin X Series IW-X710

Earlier in this review we looked at another offering from Inwin, and the verdict was not that favorable. Inwin, however, shipped another model from its new X Series, the IW-X710. Upon opening the IW-X710 it is apparent that the X Series is a reputable attempt by Inwin to return to its position of dominance and leadership in the PC case market space. Let's take a closer look at this new Inwin X series member to see if it lives up to our first impression.
