Conclusion

General   + -
The BitFenix Prodigy M is a well though, Micro ATX, mini ITX case where the interior layout is very well done and one can see from a first glance that the engineers at BitFenix have thought a lot to make this case practical. We would have loved it if the Prodigy M was two centimeter wider. That additional width should be between the right side panel and the motherboard tray, which would give you more options for cable management.   - Design - Micro ATX and Mini ITX compatibility - Available in many colors

 

       
Manufacturing quality / Ergonomics   + -
Overall the build quality is on a very good level. BitFenix did not make a mistake to go for a super thin side panel to save weight. They use solid metal sheets which gives the case good stiffness and a solid appearance. Furthermore putting the components in place is rather easy. There is overall plenty of flexibility being provided and it's only between motherboard tray and right side panel where we would love to see an additional one or two centimeters of width. This would make cable management much easier.   - Build quality - Interior Space - Cable management on the back of the motherboard tray
       
Design   + -
BitFenix created a very decent and good looking design for the Prodigy M. BitFenix decided to move the buttons and connectors away from the front panel to the right side of the case. Like this they can keep the front plain and simple. What makes the design of this particular case interesting are the flexible handle bars and it really makes this little case look special. Like for the ITX version, BitFenix now offers this model in different colors and we think that this is a great addition since the market is now packed with many motherboards in different color schemes. Modder and enthusiasts will definitely like this aspect.   - Design - Cable management on the back of the motherboard tray
       
Recommendation   + -
We can recommed the Prodigy M to anyone who is looking for a small case which not only offers plenty of space, but can even cope with enthusiast grade hardware. When visiting Geizhals.eu we found prices to start at 78.99 Euro, which is reasonable, but not a bargain.   - Gaming-PC
- Enthusiast build
- Desktop PC
- HTPC
- File Server
 
 
Rating
The BitFenix Prodigy M gets very good four and a half out of five stars.
