5 out of 5 eggsGood case for the price

Pros: I was a little skeptical of this case based on some prior negative reviews. After doing the build, I'm very happy with the case and the results. The handle is fine for normal use. Some people commented that it would break off easily. Maybe if you spin the case around or do crazy stuff like fill it with stones, but for normal computer transport, the handle should be fine.

All the cable headers were well labeled and the case fan (one on the PS and one in the rear of the case) are reasonably quiet for what you would expect to be included with an inexpensive case.

Cons: The only possible beef is the location of the holes for MB standoffs, and I'm sure this is MB specific. I would had liked one more standoff hole in the corner for the board. It made inserting the RAM into the board a little difficult (without bending the board to an uncomfortable degree). But that's a very small complaint.

Other Thoughts: Overall, the case works well. It made for a nice finishing touch on an entry-level gaming system.

1 out of 5 eggsBeware

Pros: Light weight, easy to build and price was good. I used a number of these in the past with little or no problems but this last shipment was a disappointment.

Cons: Broken out of the box. I ordered it for a custom build and waited to long to open the box. The handle was partially attached and the clips that hold it down were broken. I did a search for parts and found that it was a known defect from the factory.

2 out of 5 eggsShips poorly

Pros: Over the past year or two I've purchased a lot of these cases because of the compact size and handle. Nice to have a power supply thrown in too.

Cons: Two problems with these cases: 1) plastic tabs that hold the top plastic unit to the case tend to break off during shipping, rendering the case and handle basically worthless, and 2) the fans tend to wear out prematurely creating quite a racket until replaced. One or two out of every three cases I've ordered have been broken.

Other Thoughts: This last shipment was the final straw. No more of these for our builds. Too bad, since the overall design is quite nice. Just manufactured too cheaply.

1 out of 5 eggsShipped broken

Pros: The price for a 300w power supply with a case.

Cons: purchased item, top bezel broken from manufacturer. RMA'd. Thanks New Egg. Replacement; top bezel broken from manufacturer. Returning for refund.

Other Thoughts: I'm not turned off to Apex as a company but this particular case design although nice and a little different. the bezel can't be so cheap that it does not make it out of the factory before breaking. And I say that because there is not damage to the box or Styrofoam packing.

1 out of 5 eggsPieces of junk

Pros: Nice design

Cons: Bad build quality and apparently bad factory handling.

Other Thoughts: I bought three of these. The first one was dented pretty bad in the back of the case. The second case's top part where the handle is broke off the time I lifted it by the handle. I am sending all three of them back.

2 out of 5 eggsThe handle is useless

Pros: Cheap Has the most basic features you would expect.

Cons: The top panel with the handle was broken when it arrived. the only thing holding the handle on is a few plastic clips. will not hold any weight at all whatsoever. impossible to get normal size 120mm fans in the front, It is blocked by the metal frame which is not removable.

Other Thoughts: NEVER USE THE HANDLE IT IS NOT MADE TO HOLD WEIGHT OF THE CASE, LET ALONE ANY COMPONENTS INSIDE.

1 out of 5 eggsNot Worth it

Pros: Cheap with Power Supply

Cons: When i got the case the top was completely broken off. The side panel was dented badly. I rma'd the thing 5 minutes after opening

Other Thoughts: I hope the next one comes in good shape i would not suggest picking this thing up by the handle if it broke in transit

4 out of 5 eggsNice but needs some updates

Pros: 1) Front panel is easy to remove and re-attach
2) All folded edges inside
3) Enough room for a standard build
4) USB ports on top
5) Not Bad looking (not great either)
6) Handle on Top is GREAT!

Cons: 1) USB Ports on top are USB2 only.
2) Clunky On-Off button (soft-touch electronic button would be nice)
3) Just a little light on the metal thickness - needs to be a little thicker - the side panels flex too easy - makes it seem a little cheap.
4) Power On LED is soft pale green - needs to be a just a touch brighter (but not like the retina burning blue LED's on some cases)

Other Thoughts: After my first build with this case, I'm general happy. Ordered 3 more.

3 out of 5 eggsDecent Case

Pros: Nice looking build went ok

Cons: Front panel of case pulls off but there are wires attached I had never seen this before. One of the plastic bullet pieces on the front panel that attaches to the rest of case broke and I was being delicate. Power button sticks part way in so it boots then shuts down now that I know this I can press again to unstick it.

Other Thoughts: I thought I would like the handle but I usually put things on top of the pc so I can't. Not a con since I knew this going in.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I love the handle on this case, it's a neat add-on. Aside from that, the case is pretty sturdy.

Cons: It's been years since I assembled this, but I'm sure the case, like all others, has a few unique quirks. Notably, I got one of these for a friend's PC build, and it could not accommodate a large, tall CPU cooler. This isn't a gigantic case, so part size needs to be taken into account, especially if they're larger than normal.
