3 out of 5 eggsGreat Case - Bad Power Supply

Pros: Case is right size, everything fits like a charm.

Cons: Power supply DOA. Sending back for replacement. Very disappointed on an otherwise great fit.

4 out of 5 eggsA great buy, depending on what you need!

Pros: This is a great looking case for the desktop with nice detentions. It looks attractive on the desk and runs quiet enough. You get easy access to the front for your drives, card-readers, USB ports, etc. This case strikes a nice balance between the big hulking towers and the ultra-compact mini-itx cases out there. As for the expansion space, while you cant go all-out like you can with a full tower, this has just enough space to make a really potent computer in a compact space. You do have to mind the size of things like graphics cards, and aftermarket cooloers (get a low-profile cooler), but with careful selection, you can outfit this with top-notch stuff! A 500 watt PSU is included. As we all know, PSU's which are included with cases are in now way "renowned", and are certainly not regarded as robust long-lasting supplies of power. However, in a case like this, it's nice to have the PSU included just to get your system up and running if you want to avoid buying a nice PSU right off the bat. So this is a cheap "starter PSU", if you will. The 3-sided case cover is very easy to take off and put back on for quick and easy access to the inside. From my experience, most towers are not as easy to get inside as this one (two sides to take off, instead of one). This case is really a good deal for the price and strikes a balance between cheap-junk cases, and the really nice but expensive cases out there, especially if you buy this when it's on sale.

Cons: The plastic vent-hole panels are easily pressed in. As long as you avoid touching them with much force, they should stay in place. In general, a lot of the construction in the case is made out of thin materials, so its not super resident to being bent or damaged. So you need to handle with care while working on it, and make sure it its well-protected when traveling with it. But none of this poses a problem at all for a device that will just sit in place on your desk. You are certainly not getting a highly robust and sturdy case you would expect from a large tower, but that is offset by the fact that this is compact and takes up less space. You are limited in the dimensions of add-ons. For example your after-market cooler probably must be a low-profile one, and if you are getting a long top-end GPU like an Nvidia GTX-980, you will have to carefully consider weather it will fit well enough in the case. I would guess the simpler and slimmer ones should be OK, but if its a high-powered version with extra-large cooling equipment, you could encounter a problem. With all these caveats, with a bit of mindfulness you can work with the limitations and enjoy a case that is quite a nice one, all things considered.

Other Thoughts: Overall this is a great case. I've bought four of them so far. I ran into snags here and there but nothing major. If this case is a good match for your needs, it's probably the best option for this price range.

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 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.
