The In Win A1 is a beautiful-looking, compact chassis, that is surprisingly easy to work with, offering an excellent balance when it comes to hardware compatibility while including some nice additional features for a potent, high-performance rig without the frustrations that usually come with an enclosure of this size.

I love this case.so much I mailed them last year to say please drop the psu and charger and you have a winner with lowering the price accordingly. What do they do? they introduce updated version with 2 rgb fans and an updated gold rated psu with 50 more watts extra at least for the same price.inwin is a strange company they like to push the envelope to the limits but marketing and selling is their Achilles heel.nevertheless one of the best min itx case on the market today.though one complaint I have is the clear plastic they use does not look bad from distance but would have been way better if they used another material with clear see through.

This is the first In-win A1 (non-PLUS) review I saw putting the included PSU as a Positive.
Every other review I watched about the A1 said this 80+ bronze PSU doesn't worth the price it is asking for and considered as a negative.

Therefore In-win came up with the PLUS model with a 80+ gold PSU.
This should be a Pros for the PLUS model but Cons for the basic model and should be listed.

Also the glass panel is held by "Pull-tabs" , not "Thumb screws" .

this is by far the best ITX casing anyone can ask for, especially the inclusion of a 650W PSU & a Qi Charging Pad.

When everything you see day in day out are thumbscrews, unfortunately, it becomes habit :D thanks for pointing that out. Fixed!

Techpowerup reviews interesting and modern cases but uses hardware from the 90's to showcase the assembly that doesn't help the case image.

nothing wrong with that since the purpose is how it looks when it fully assembled
