4 out of 5 eggsDecent, yet

Pros: Decently built
Small form factor
Comes in colors
Can easily see the internals
Carrying handle for ease of transportation
Great for portable lower power CPU/GPU systems
It looks nice with added lighting.
It can be modded

Cons: Only 1 SATA power connection, so plan on a new PSU or a splitter if you wand a HDD and Optical...
***Restricted airflow case - 1 egg off for this
I would not recommend for hot cpu's - I installed a 90CFM silenx in here and it only cooled after I removed the plexi in the side panel.
The case vents are just inadequate to get good ventilation.
The interior case vents are blocked off by the front panel as is the interior fan mount, so why have a fan mount if it's blocked off?

Other Thoughts: This case MUST be modded to if you are going to run moderate to hot GPU and or CPU in it. I did it so it can be done but requires metal work (drilling and cutting)

4 out of 5 eggssmall but not that small

Pros: I wanted to try a micro atx system for the first time and not invest too much into it. I like the case because it's got the three windows, unfortunately mine will be looking in on bulky gear. The psu is no good for my cpu so I had to pull that, no benefits to it being in there. The handle feels risky but I use it anyway so far it's never failed me. Slide out motherboard tray is really a plus, maybe overtime they will work out the kinks with that. One large fan, it's blue which is fine by me, I've got blue cables and leds.

Cons: Should come set on Fahrenheit, it was a lot of pulling on the most frail part of the case, for me to get to the switch. I felt like I was going to break the little delicate tabs on the plastic, but it all worked out ok. I just hate to pull and pry on the plastic parts because I snapped a new one once.

Other Thoughts: A little tall for a micro, lots of extra space, even around the mobo, if you want a really tiny micro this ain't it.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Light weight, compact design; a bit bigger than i expected, but this is my first build and it's still shorter than my current Dell tower.

Had plenty of length on all the included wires and cables to reach all my motherboard connector locations and still have decent wire management.

Cons: The only thing I can think of is the unfinished edges of the aluminum are rough and sharp. On the flip side....most of the edges where it counts are folded/rolled smooth.

Other Thoughts: Apevia must have updated the specs on the included 420W PSU...the one mine came with has...

1 x 24pin Main Power (20 + 4 pin)
1 x 12V (P4)
3 x Peripheral
1 x Floppy
3 x SATA

So, those of you that counted this one out for the lack of SATA power, think again.

4 out of 5 eggsLooks great and good use of space, but airflow an issue

Pros: - This case simply looks great. The three side windows and LED fans are awesome.
- Space is very well used in this case. Just the right amount of breathing room where needed, but very space-efficient where it can be.
- Removable motherboard tray makes installation that much easier.
- Includes a 420 W power supply (works very well so far for my configuration, see below).
- The carrying handle is awesome and makes it easy to transport the system (as others have said, I'm not sure what some mean "it's bigger than I expected…” the dimensions are listed in the specs and are perfectly reasonable for a microATX case with this amount of room for peripherals).
- Plenty of room for peripherals and expansion cards considering the size of the case.
- LCD temperature indicators on the front are a nice touch.

Cons: Airflow in the case could be a lot better, and is the main reason I’m giving it 4/5 instead of full marks. There's a fan on the power supply and on back, but not all of the case is covered: there's not much room for an air current at the front of the case, and at the top there are spaces where heat can accumulate because of the lack of airflow.

I really liked everything else about this case, so instead of returning it what I did was drill some 3/8th inch holes in each of the side panels as follows:
- Mounts and air holes for one 80mm fan on the lower-right of the left panel (on the opposite end from the main fan, to bring cold air in).
- A grid of holes in the top panel, particularly above the CPU area, to let hot air out.
- Two line of holes in the right panel along the bottom part, to allow a bit of cold air in.

This might not be necessary with a lower power stuff or less peripherals, so if doing that don't let this discourage you from trying this case... just be aware is al

Other Thoughts: My system build is as follows:
- ASRock N68C-GS FX motherboard (N82E16813157309 though got it from a friend, not from Newegg)
- AMD FX-4100 processor (N82E16819103996)
- PNY VCQ600-T nVidia Quadro 600 video card (N82E16814133465), PCIe x16
- Rosewill USB 3.0 expansion card (N82E16815166026), PCIe x1
- Rosewill 802.11n wireless adapter (N82E16833166051), PCI
- GeIL 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR3 memory (N82E16820144563)
- LG DVD Burner (N82E16827136247)
- Antec 80mm blue LED case fan (N82E16835209007)

For some reason all the expansion cards I went with ended up being low profile, though they could have been full height too.

Get a couple tie-wraps to secure cables, particularly the wires near the CPU and exhaust fans so that they don’t get caught in the fans.

5 out of 5 eggsWonderfully Long Life

Pros: I bought this from NewEgg in Oct 2009. Longest life of anyhting so far. Out of at least a dozen. The clear side panel has been broadsided against a cabinet side panel and invisible since installed. I thinl it was in stock when I purchased it. I pulled it out and apart for cleaning out the dust and it still is like new.

Cons: It always ran pretty hot. 40 to 42C.

Other Thoughts: Not really a con I suppose. Oct 2009 and this still has the original power supply. I know it is the biggest hest source in the case. It blows out a ton of hot air. Not sure why it has not committed suicide by now. Running I7 920 Bloomfield 130W. State of the art when purchased, Stock fan and 6GB of Gskill triple channel. Running on EVGA 121-BL-E756-TR LGA 1366 Intel X58 Micro ATX. Everything has been rock solid the build in 2009. In spite of the heat it produces. Maybe I'll look for a cooler PS. Someday

2 out of 5 eggsVery Cheap!!!

Pros: Cool Design.

Cons: Cheaply made. The front panel wires are so short that you can't slide the motherboard out the back for any repair or upgrade. The plexi-glass also scratches very easily.

4 out of 5 eggsSomewhat Snazzy, But Sometimes as PITA

Pros: Clever design, easy assembly, attractive.

Cons: Once you have it built, it is a nightmare to get back open to add on to or tweak. The front panel LCD thingy and front USB and sound ports are junky as well.

Other Thoughts: Decide how much post-assembly fooling around you will do and balance it against how much you like the look of this case. THEN purchase it.

2 out of 5 eggsUtter garbage, nice form factor

Pros: Great layout, design, appearance. Makes great portable workstation. Excellent size. (Not so disproportionately deep like other toaster cases.)

Fits standard ATX power supply, though not sure how it would fare if I had optical drive(s) in the 5.25" bays.

Cons: Not only is this thing made out of grade F- aluminum, but mine arrived completely crushed into some sort of flattened rhombus shape, rather than the rectangular box pictured. Funny thing was the external shipping box was pristine while the internal manufacturer's box was obviously destroyed, so this damage didn't occur on the last leg of the journey, NewEgg had to have shipped it out in this condition. I was too eager to get my build underway that I painstakingly reformed the entire case over the next two hours rather than do an RMA.

Add to that that the power supply burnt out after 9 days of use. Oh, and what century is this, where the power supply has a singular SATA power connector?

Other Thoughts: I have two of these installed in it: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16816241004

They are a half inch less deep than a DVD drive and yet they barely fit in there with my standard ATX power supply, with a 90-degree connector SATA cable which I am using. The power supply this came with is about an inch less deep than a standard one, with other dimensions standard.

Manufacturer Response:

You can do an RMA through us for the power supply to get an exchange on the PSU if you are still under our warranty period. You can contact Apevia's customer service at service@apevia.com or call at (909) 718-0789. We try to reply to all calls and e-mails as soon as we can.

4 out of 5 eggsNice

Pros: Compact, lightweight, stylish. A very convenient design that allows for a full-sized video card, multiple hard drives, and decent cooling.

Cons: Cheap PSU units included. Can I buy one WITHOUT a PSU?

Other Thoughts: To those who complain of "cheap/flimsy metal" and it being aluminum. Aluminum is SOFT, there's nothing Apevia can do about that. If you don't want an aluminum case, don't buy one! The advantage, of course, is that aluminum is lightweight. If you're not rough on your equipment, it's just fine.

As far as the included PSU on any Apevia case of this style - I've never found them sufficient once I add my own video card. Reboots, random poweroffs, etc. I have to upgrade the PSU. And, that's a problem in this case. There's not room for a standard PSU! The included PSU is about 5% smaller than standard, and when I switched in a standard PSU, the side panel would not fit properly. I ended up having to FLEX the side panel out a bit, and bend the tab on the top panel flat because it no longer could hook into the side panel on that side. BAD. 1/4" more space woulda solved this. Also most PSUs have too many/too long of cables for this case, leading to bad clutter. Modular might work better.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible

Pros: Slide out motherboard tray
easy access

Cons: poor welds for screw mounts(require pliers to hold them in place)
aluminum is flimsy
Power switch cable Does not reach for ASUS P5KPL-CM micro ATX boards

Other Thoughts: Box was ripped and wet when shipped to me. Case was slightly bent, but i managed to reshape it easily. If this case was made of steel it would be great.
