2 out of 5 eggsYou can do better.

Pros: Purchased a green case, but the same exact model. The temperature LCD screen is nice and bright. Had no problems installing hardware and large video cards. It's an attractive case. No issues turning the case on and off normally.

Cons: I wouldn't recommend this case. While it has a unique and cool look, it feels really cheap and flimsy. I have bought cases for under $50 that are more durable. For the price it's not worth it. You can find better quality cases for half the price. There are black metal grills on the front for airflow, both of them fell off during the first month of ownership. It looks ugly without the grills. Closing the case can be a pain too because of the flimsy material.

The LCD screen worked occasionally. Sometimes I would turn the computer on and it wouldn't power the LCD screen. Randomly it would turn on and off. I'm not sure why. The temperature seemed accurate at least when it did work.

The handle that you use to carry it around feels very cheap. It gets stuck in the outward position often and felt like it's about to snap off since I've owned it. It hasn't broken, but I can't say that the handle feels reliable at all. I'm always waiting for it to break and expecting the PC to fall on my foot or something.

I can't justify the price at all.

Other Thoughts: Again, it's not a bad case. It looks good and there is some space to work in it. I wanted something different, and something that I can carry. This was my first cube case, and if you buy a case like this you have to expect that certain things will be different.

While I do like how it looks, it looks like swiss cheese when the black grills fell off because the metal has multiple holes behind he grills. I tried putting them back on but they kept falling off.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: * Compact, yet roomy
* Has Power Supply (with some caveats)
* Ample External Expansion Bays
* Fans are very quiet

Cons: * Case cover can be a little frustrating to get back on
* Wires for front panel might be a little too long
* Sadly no 2.5" Harddrive brackets for SSDs or Laptop HDDs (easily remedied by getting an adapter)
These three are more annoyances rather than full fledged cons. My two biggest gripes are with the Power Supply and the Layout.

Power Supply: It's 500w, plenty of power for an HTPC or Server for use with Steam In Home Streaming. However, it does not have an 8 pin (4+4) CPU header. Not wanting to risk anything catastrophic, I am saving this power supply as a backup and found another with an 8pin CPU plug.

Layout: I am using this case as a server / always on computer enclosure. I decided to add in a GTX 750 Ti so that I could take advantage of Steam's In Home Streaming functionality. The card *just* fits in the case. However, due to the placement of the 6pin GPU Power Header, some modifications to the case were in order. I ended up cutting out a small (<1 sq in) hole so that the GFX Card could get its power. Be wary of cards that are any taller. Length wise, there is still a few inches of room.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I am very pleased with this case, small frustrations aside. Modifying the case was not difficult, and there's no reason to think this isn't a quality case simply because it didn't happen to fit perfectly with the Motherboard (4 vs 8 pin CPU power) and the GFX Card (placement of 6pin power) that I had chosen. The fans are very quiet; the all black case is very understated and not flashy -- at least no more than a modern day console or TV Set Top Box.

2 out of 5 eggsFollow up

Pros: looks ok
500w psu works/ still does

Cons: Handle came loose after maybe 3 movement uses, nearly dropped my computer when one screw came out of the handle.
Layout is pretty bad, wasted space, no way to do cable management.
If you are planning to put a gaming rig in here, don't plain and simple. If you plan to put anything other than a simple media pc in here, don't...
Look at the dimension specs, this thing isn't as small as you might think.
Flimsy, front grates pop out easy.

Other Thoughts: I have no experience with other shuttle like cases but...

Q: Higher than a media pc???
A: Mid tower or larger.

2 out of 5 eggsMeh, I'll avoid Apevia in the future

Pros: 500W PSU, looks okay, not a complete dud... that's about it

Cons: Larger then I expected for the form factor. Because of the poorly designed layout, there is lot of wasted space at the front of the case, and no good way to run the cables cleanly.

The mesh covers on the front of the case are glued into place. One fell off the first time I took the case apart to add a component.

Other Thoughts: I wouldn't buy this case again, and regret buying it this time.

3 out of 5 eggsBad P/S like many others

Pros: Nice looking. Slide out tray is nice.

Cons: 1) As noted by others: the power supply sucks. I had to get an RMA the first week. Given the shipping amount, I effectively had a 12% penalty on the cost of the unit. I was not over-loading it (on-board vid, one hd, no CD).

2) As noted by others, it is a bit flimsy. Not so much as to be a real problem, but definitely light weight.

3) The PS fan vents directly onto the PCI slots (though better than venting on the cpu and ram).

4) The blue temp LED is way too obnoxious for me. I disabled it.

Other Thoughts: Despite all this, I would buy it again. Apevia customer service was fast to act on my RMA and quickly responded to emails.

1 out of 5 eggspoorly built.

Pros: nice look, temp readout, plenty of room,

Cons: Power supply lasted literally 5 minutes, male power plug connector is very loose.
stripped holes for a lot of the screws including the motherboard tray screw holes.

Other Thoughts: this case is not worth the money because of the poor quality, it seems like the QC inspector at Apeiva was asleep when this one went by.

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.

2 out of 5 eggsNice Looking, Questionable Quality

Pros: I like the form factor of this case. It is larger than an HTPC case but affords you plenty of room to work in the case.
The temperature readout on the front of the case for HDD and CPU are nice.

Cons: Power supply died within one week of use.
The plastic part of the front USB ports that prevents the USB connectors from touching each other came out rendering the ports useless.
A screw hole on one of the expansion ports was stripped making impossible to secure a card in that port.

Other Thoughts: I really like the way this case looks, however it seems very cheaply made. I don't think this case is worth the price charged. I definitely would not purchase it again.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat Case - Fried Power Supply

Pros: Great case. Low height. I like the layout. Plenty of room inside. It will fit inside a shelf due to its low height. Has 3 fans - which should be more than enough. Even though the power supply fried itself the instant I plugged it in, I'm keeping the case - My old case had a newer more powerful power supply and I simply moved it into the new case

Cons: Power supply. It fried itself the instant I plugged it in. Do not buy this case if you need the power supply. If you are willing to reuse your old one, this is a great case.

Other Thoughts: They should sell this case without the power supply and then it would be perfect.

3 out of 5 eggsPSU lasted 3 years installed upside down

Pros: Great little case, good layout for ATX mini mobo, great footprint on the stand.

Cons: The PSU was installed backwards, so the fan meant to face into the machine was facing upwards. This caused the poor PSU fan to give out in year 3. I'm not even mad. I'm impressed it lasted so long. Just buying a new PSU for it now. Cable management was a bit of an issue, but now I'm able to guess why.
