2 out of 5 eggsAre these ratings rigged

Pros: - plenty of room for case fans
- finish is good in terms of edges and painting
- lots of ventilation openings (if you like that)

Cons: - drive bay layout is poor
- problematic installation in the 5.25" bays after motherboard's in
- non-removable drive cages
- way too shiny with 4 flashing LEDs
- no suspension for the drives
- poorly designed SATA slot at the front

Other Thoughts: Not sure why everybody gives it 5 star. I would rate it 2.5, but to compensate for the overly favorable reviews I gave it 2

Basics are not covered. Many unnecessary features. Too flashy for my liking.

My biggest gripe is with HDD/DVD installation and bay availability. There is only one 2.5-inch "bay" which is really bolting the SSD underneath the 3.5" drive cage. The 3.5" are at 90 degree angle and the connectors must be plugged from the other side which makes it awkward and requires right-angle cables (no room to plug the SATA cables from the main door).

You can only access 2 of the 5.25" bays from the front. The other two are unusable after the motherboard is in. It would have been much better if all 5.25-inch bays had the same plastic pull-out covers like the top 2 (instead of the ugly flippy doors). The drive cages are not removable.

The front SATA makes the drive stick a lot and generally I wouldn't trust the connector. It was hard to plug a drive requiring excessive force.

Power button has stupid design. If you don't change your mobo BIOS you may end up with 4 flashing LEDs when in sleep mode (as was the case with my MSI). It makes it seem the cops are coming. No good place where to grab the case to move it around.

Maybe for $30-40 it is an okay case, but I paid $60 based on the stellar reviews and I regret it. Just too big of a hassle to return.

4 out of 5 eggsPost-Year Review

Pros: Lightweight design, cool looks, a hot swap bay, plenty of fan space, plenty of bays for everything and bottom-loaded PSU port. Holds basic lightweight components very well, and uses HDD rails, making swapping easy. Decent bang for buck.

Cons: Not durable, made of lightweight aluminum, easily put a dent in it with my fist once. Hot swap bay door sticks frequently and won't close on its own. Temperature gauge is almost unreadable due to being deep blue on black, and especially so at an angle. Will not hold heavy GPUs without support. Bad cable management, and the system cables are kind of all over the place. Useless manual. No means of securing thermostat wire to CPU included.

Other Thoughts: Was my case for my first build, and satisfied with it, but it has its issues.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case!

Pros: This case is a great buy! Has plenty of ventilation and everything fits together easily. The case doesn't feel cheap, and its great to manage cables with. The added in front panel LED is night as well.

Cons: The only con I had found, was the front LED temp gauge is off about 5 degrees. Not worth removing a Neg though. People should only rely on it if they don't have the proper software.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend to a friend for sure! Especially at $50!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case for First Build

Pros: Roomy, LCD display is useful and looks sick. A joy to build in. Lots of headers.
Fits up to 17" GPU.

Cons: Comes with only one fan, cables for the headers are a little to short.

Other Thoughts: The power button clicks loudly which I don't really like. Looks awesome with blue led fan and power supply.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent case!

Pros: Runs cool with one fan, much cooler than my old case which was a rosewill. All components transferred easily. Well ventilated. Display shows temperature nicely and probe worked great. Will purchase more fans when i upgrade my rig though. If you want a nice case without breaking the bank look no further.

Cons: The F/C switch for the front panel temperature gauge was a little difficult to find. not enough to take off a full egg.

Don't be fooled by the picture, it doesn't swing open. Again not enough to lower the review.

Other Thoughts: I would put 4.5 eggs instead of 5 because not finding the switch was not enough really for a full egg off.

Buy this case! You will not be disappointed. The varients with colored plastic on the side look great too.

4 out of 5 eggsVery good

Pros: Sturdy, looks amazing with the Apevia Fans i put into it, Lots of room, good airflow, LCD temperature, Cable management.

Very large compared to the pictures.

Cons: a few little things, if you want this case to work make sure your PSU will reach to the motherboard, because i had to order extensions for my PSU to go across the GFX card to the motherboard ETC.

you must use SATA Cables that are at a 90* angle to use the HDD bay i did not know this and now have to order a new SATA cable (cheap but annoying)

almost impossible to put the fan into the front of the case. could not figure it out

5 out of 5 eggsAWESOME case!!

Pros: LCD for temp display is fantastic
Lightweight
Sturdy
Plenty of space for fans and drives of all kinds
Easy to work inside of

Cons: Can't replace expansion slots both in the front and the rear. Still not enough to take an egg off for though. Also the case isn't very wide so my Cooler Master 212 EVO just BARELY fit, so be careful. Again, not enough to take an egg off.

Other Thoughts: This will be my 5th build and I was a little hesitant about going with a case that was in the sub $100 range. I'm definitely glad I did. I was very surprised at the build quality of the case. Great job apevia! I purchased 3 apevia 120mm fans along with the case. 1 up front, 1 in the back, and 2 on the top. I'm going for a push/pull setup.

4 out of 5 eggspci-e slots aren't replacable

Pros: I bought this case in spite of the previous Apevia case that I owned which was of overall bad build quality. Despite that I like the design of this one. The front panel is very well thought out and doesn't look like it will turn into a robot like most cases on today's market. My favorite feature of the front panel is the one I use least often, the hidden optical drive is fantastic. Allowing me to have an optical drive installed for the rare occurrence that I need it, without compromising the look.
The build quality is slightly better then expected for this price range, side panels are sturdy and have almost no flex. There is plenty of room to rout cables through the back. The tool-less optical and hard drive bays are a nice touch as well.

Cons: My main complaint with this case is the optical and pci slots that can't be replaced once removed(optical not so much a problem as it is covered by the front panel), I didn't take my time with the video cards and line them up properly to see which ones I needed to pop out, but I wont take an egg for that. I also wish they added a tool-less optical bay in the third slot or just moved the second one down, but it's not a big deal to pop a few more screws in. The triangular lights on the corners of the front panel, in my opinion look slightly tacky. Last but not least the temperature led on the front of my case is damaged, at the top of the display there are specs of inc all across the top(they don't obstruct the view, though I am disappointed that it was damaged)

Other Thoughts: I was very surprised by how good this case is, given how bad the apevia trooper-x jr. case i had was. I only docked an egg for the front led being slightly damaged(in shipping I'm sure). If you get this case though, be sure to line up your graphics card first so that you can knock out the correct breakaway slots, (my 660's on an atx board, used the 2nd 3rd 5th and 6th slots).
