1 out of 5 eggsPretty face, but no substance.

Pros: Pretty face. Removable motherboard tray. Lots of storage space.

Cons: It's so lightweight that I'm afraid I'll wad it up just by touching it. For a mini ATX this is a big box and I was truly surprised just how big it is - think small microwave or very big toaster oven. While this would normally be a really good thing in my mind, this case is so big that it feels like it's going to fall apart. You know how a small corrugated box can be super rigid, but if you scale that same box up 20 times, with the same thickness of cardboard it becomes very, very flexible hard to work on with warping something.

I've been building computers since 1986, all sizes and all types and in that time I bought a couple cases that were not outstanding. It happens. But this one is a joke.

Far to many moving parts. That's one of the reason that the case is so flexible. pulling the motherboard tray up, I saw the entire back-plane flexing and bending - and it slid out without a catch.

This is advertised as being a portable computer case that you can pick up by the handle that's spring loaded on the face of the case. If you do, it's my opinion that you'll be rebuilding the computer. That handle is retained with just a couple eclips that were barely hanging on in my case. It is also mounted in the plastic face, not in the metal behind it.

Absolutely plan on changing the power supply. I haven't seen a PS this lightweight since I had a Commodore 64.

Bottom line is this, if you are building a computer that has a lot of pretty parts and lights you want to show off and it's never going to be moved, perhaps you can get by with it, it might be OK.

If they had used this thickness steel instead of aluminum it would have made a nice case. Sadly they didn't do that.

If they had skipped the power supply entirely it could be a bit cheaper. But if they spent $2 on the supply instead.

Other Thoughts: I'm sending it back. It wasn't cheap, and shipping it back won't be cheap due to the size, but I'm not going to use it. I'm afraid it would collapse.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat case

Pros: it looks cool and its small. The mb tray made my first build much more enjoyable. and i dont understand why everyone keeps calling it flimsy. your a moron if you break this case. it was my first build and i didnt break it. and the stock fans are quiet and keep it cool. but im switching them out anyways for some much more powerful fans since i dont run a/c

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: i recommend the scythe big shuriken 2 heatsink and fan because it fits very well in this case and seems to keep the processor cool.

2 out of 5 eggsNot Impressed

Pros: SFF Case, good for a simple build, but hard to fit anything

Cons: Not very durable, screws strip out easily, front mesh is very fragile, and MB tray is flimsy.

Other Thoughts: I wouldn't use this case for a gaming build for sure.
If you plan on doing a nice build, and want a cube case, i would look into a different case because IMO this case is not worth it for a quality build, especially for 100 dollars

5 out of 5 eggsThe PERFECT Lanbox

Pros: This thing is fantastic. As soon as I took it out of the box I was hooked. The included fans as well as the power supply are whisper quiet! A nice, relaxing blue light shines through the 3 built in windows from the exhaust fan LEDs. Much more room inside than one might think at first glance. Carrying handle is surprisingly strong and spring loaded. Temperature sensors work great, and the temperature display is nice, bright, and easy to read. Power supply cables are well wrapped, actually much better than even the pictures seem to show.

Cons: Seriously, I can't seem to find a single one!

Other Thoughts: I love this thing! Tossed together a low watt gaming rig consisting of: i5 2500 (@ 3.3GHz, no intention of overclocking), MSI GTX460 Hawk, 8GB G.SKILL Sniper DDR3 1333, and a Biostar H61MGC micro atx mobo, along with my trusty Intel SSD. The included 500w PSU handles things without breaking a sweat. If the thing didn't have lights, I wouldn't know it was on. Its fast, its cool, and a lot more portable than your average tower. Apevia knocked this one out of the park!

5 out of 5 eggsBest Design I Have Seen

Pros: Efficient design, easy access, attractive, quality power supply; perfect.

Cons: Usually quiet.

Other Thoughts: I purchased one with the Blue front, and one with the Red front. They seem identical, but Blue seems to report warmer temperatures and the fans run a little louder. Still quieter than other cases I have tried that fit on my desktop, I would not have noticed it if Red wasn't even cooler & quieter.

2 out of 5 eggsPoor power supply

Pros: The case looks good! The carrying handle is nice! Plenty of room!

Cons: The power supply is very cheap! Ever since building this system 18 months ago it has had issues with blue screens, crashes, etc. About a month ago the power supply started making a loud 'squealing' kind of noise and no it wasn't the fan. I replaced the power supply with a Corsair brand and the noise is gone AND the crashes all stopped. And no the power supply wasn't overloaded, the system uses well below the rated power specifications of the power supply.

When the cover is off of the case it's very flimsy, but seems to firm up well enough once assembled.

The Aluminum bracket had to be modified to make room for the PCI-e power connector for the 9800GTX video card. Luckily some tin snips and pliers took care of that problem.

While the front temp display may seem nice, the temp probes are very poor quality and and accuracy is pretty poor. I have mine disconnected altogether.

Other Thoughts: Not the best quality but not bad for the price.. just get the cheaper one with the lower wattage power supply and purchase a better quality power supply to use with it. Don't plan on any kind of reliability with the power supply that comes with it.

4 out of 5 eggsCute, flimsy box

Pros: The case itself is fairly light. The stock fans are all pretty quiet. Has room for 2 double-wide, extra long video cards. I've got quite a bit of equipment stuffed into this box -- not much room left over, but you can definitely fit everything needed into this box. The case itself looks fairly sexy.

Cons: Entire chasis is made out of fairly thin sheet-metal - in fact it's probably the flimsiest case I've ever seen. There is not much reinforcement between the front and the back faces of the machine. The front plastic bezel seems very fragile.

There's not a lot of clearance for the CPU fan, so be very careful with aftermarket coolers I have remove the fan from my heatsink before the mobo-tray will slide in/out. (And I can't get the cpu-fan without remove the gfx card, and I can't remove the gfx card w/o removing the power-supply. Yeah...)

The temperature's on the front lcd are feed from external probes that you have to position. I had hoped it might actually show the BIOS reported temperatures instead.

Other Thoughts: Based on the price, I have a hard time believing the power-supply is of much quality. I would have much rather had the case only, and not have to pay for the power supply. Based on the build-quality, this case could probably have been half the price. I ended up needing a 600W power supply anyway, so I had to upgrade it.

I bought a COOLER MASTER GeminII S RR-CCH-PBU1-GP 120mm fan for the CPU, and it's about 5mm too tall to fit properly in the case. I was able to use a hacksaw to clear a little more space to allow the fan to fit (didn't seem to affect structural strength much).

This was a replacement for an older model barebones-shuttle case. I would say shuttle cases have a much higher level of engineering, design and construction in a much smaller footprint. That said, I don't think I could run gfx card I wanted in any of the shuttle cases, so it's a tradeoff.
