3 out of 5 eggsPiece of Junk, but did the Job

Pros: Small form factor - if you go Micro ATX instead of ITX
Glowed Blue
Had a handle and front ports (see cons)
Had a see through glass body
Had a nice removable caddy

Cons: Front USB ports failed after a month and tried many different motherboard combinations to test it.
Handle and front vents broke too (the vent was just glued on)
Side of the case was sharp, but not as sharp as edges on the inside.

Other Thoughts: This is in the dumpster now. The case was way too big and bulky for a portable slim case.
I no longer had a MicroATX board so there was no need to keep it around and the lack of ports in the front really justified just replacing it.
It served its purpose for the time, but there are so many portable pc options now with smaller form factors, that this thing seems obsolete by today's standards.
On the plus side, I still have the PSU that came with it incase my current one dies.

5 out of 5 eggsCool Case

Pros: 3 Clear sides looks awesome with lights. Very easy to work with since motherboard plate comes out. Also the HDD bracket comes out. The PSU that came with it was plenty good enough for a light computer build as long as you have a 4pin mobo and not an 8pin.

Cons: None, but check your motherboard before assuming the PSU will work.

Other Thoughts: With 3 clear sides you would figure it would be a bit flimsy, but it seemed perfect to me. Looks kinda like a sleek microwave when its complete. A microwave that can play movies, games and web surf :p

3 out of 5 eggsFair but flimsy and fussy

Pros: Nice looks, compact, decent internal layout. Dual thermometers with front-panel readout. Fairly sturdy when all put together, as long as you don't put pressure on any of the plastic windows. Airflow looks ok, but I put a low-power MB and CPU in it, so I'm not challenging airflow by any means. Your mileage may vary.

Cons: Flimsy until completely assembled. Cable management nonexistent; you'll be on your own in that department. (The case does come with some 2" fine-gauge cable ties, but that's not enough and I couldn't find any way to anchor the bundled cables to the internal chassis.)
Don't try to use the front handle for anything--it'll fail under almost no load. Assume it's decorative and you'll be OK.

Other Thoughts: I am using this case to building a household server, so I'm not trying to wedge a whole bunch of components into the case. I could forsee some challenges if I were trying to go full SLI with dual 2-wide vid cards, for instance, or a tall CPU cooler. Still, it's a compact case; you have to expect some of that.

1 out of 5 eggsEhhhhhh!!??

Pros: small
lightweight
case is very flimsy plastic and aluminum

Cons: Not worth the $99 price tag (only worth $10 in my professional opinion. and that is being generous)
Total junk construction
case is very flimsy plastic and aluminum
pain in the rear to install your components into this case, hope you only have to do it once, and not have to open this case again.!!!

Other Thoughts: after assembling this cheap constructed junk when moving it around i popped out one of the vent screens on accident on the front and realized it was held in by 2 dabs of hot glue so i had to fix that up so it didnt look like junk. this case is poorly held together at best be careful with it.

1 out of 5 eggsNot worth it.

Pros: well it is what it says, case and power supply

Cons: extremely cheap, very bad design to do anything simple you have to take out many screws to do so.

don't accidentally put pressure on the front vents they will pop in and they are very difficult to get back into place.

Other Thoughts: should be sold for $20 case alone or $35 with power supply.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Light weight

Cons: Power supply let out all of its magic smoke in 15 minutes. Case is super flimsy and cheaply made.

Other Thoughts: Definately not a $99 case more like $35

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.

1 out of 5 eggsLooks good

Pros: Looks good. Temp sensors work well, as do front connections. Front handle is actually very sturdy and holds the case well when carrying it.

Cons: Power supply died within 2 months of owning it. The aluminum material that this case is made of is extremely thin. They could have made it with thicker aluminum. Since the material is thin, it's way to easy to strip the threads of any screws with little to no effort. As others have stated, watch out for aluminum particles from the stripped threads. Also, the case doesn't sit square and flexes way too much with the lid off. If your video card heatsink/fan has heat pipes, then be prepared to have fun trying to get it to fit.

Other Thoughts: It seems like since they changed their name from Aspire Turbo to Apevia, build quality has went downhill.

If this one broke would I buy another.... Absolutely not. It's just too cheaply made of a case. I would buy another brand (Thermaltake, AeroCool, Antec, etc) if your going for a cube case.

I had to remove the PSU fan grill to get my video card to fit, and then, it still didn't fit well.

If the aluminum material was thicker, this would have been the ultimate cube case.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat little case

Pros: Great micro atx case.

Cons: have to remove power supply to install EVGA 9600 PCIe graphics card - it's a little tight. But that's also the price for a really good compact case.

2 out of 5 eggsOkay case....3 years ago

Pros: Bought this case from a local store and promptly returned it after building the rig...but more on that below.

Pro's:
Decent looking for computer in public area

Good air flow (compared to similar cases)

Fans are low noise

Temp monitor is unique and adds visual appeal

Thumb screw for case

Cons: Where to start...

Cons:
Front audio panel header is AC'97 only - This needs to be remedied immediately as many motherboards do not support this format any longer. Additionally, this is not mentioned on the case, the manual, the specs page of Newegg or even Apevia's website. Found a random sight that mentioned it and confirmed with tech support.

Power supply is garbage - Could not keep up with Athlonx2 (Windsor) 2.7Ghz, 4 gigs, 2 hdd, 9800gt. Constant crashes in Dragonage, WoW and Lotro. Put in old PS and ran great.

HDD activity light DOA.

Front panel scratched around buttons.

3 sided case cover bends easily - Probably don't want to be removing this often.

HDD holder does not put any space between drives and there seems to be enough room to add a few mm's at least.

Other Thoughts: Went with a more expensive but reliable manufacturer in my experience (ordered off Newegg) after returning this case. The PS being Apevia as well has left me disappointed with this manufacturer.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty Case

Pros: Nice looking
Small
Clear side pannels

Cons: Difficult to work with
Box traps heat

Other Thoughts: It took me all night to place my comp in the Qpack. I like it now that it is all assembled. What you really need is time, patients, and hopefully you can find someone with small hands. ITs really tight in there and I actually had to go back to my OEM heatsink because my other one didn't fit in this case. Now my CPU temp has sky rocketed. But I guess that's the sacrifice for a nice looking case. I really like the looks and size of this one.
