4 out of 5 eggsBeautiful case

Pros: Great design, very sturdy, rounded off edges so you dont get cut.

Cons: having to take the front panel off to add/remove drives isnt very fun. Be careful as there are wires connected to the face and you will need to pull a little hard to take it off.

Other Thoughts: Another person said that if you have it on carpet, putting fans on that front spot is useless. Well the face has holes where the small blue lights are on the sides, so air comes in through there.

3 out of 5 eggsIt's alright...

Pros: Very cool looking case. Great looking design, love the spot to add an extra fan to the case. Everything installed like a breeze.

Cons: Well, like others have said, the front panel is really weird. They didn't really install anyway for you to open it, so you just kinda have to jerk on it to make it open. Mine came with a spring set the wrong way on the right so it's sticking out when I open it. Still works fine, but doesn't look as good.

Other Thoughts: Lost the box real quick so I couldn't send it back for a replacement.

My honest opinion on this case? It's neat and got some cool features/look. But really, just get a case with a better front pannel, something that will open right way with a set mechanism to open.

5 out of 5 eggsAwsome...but

Pros: wow, this case is awsome. i like the front cover. so far its the only case that i have seen that actually swivels up like that!

another plus is the quick release of the 3.5" and 5.25" bay. Major PLUS!! i usually hate working in cramped areas. now i dont have too.

Cons: the bad part is that
- to make the cover swivel to get to the floppy/dvd burner-rom drives you have to press the bottom part of the swivel cover quite HARD or it wont open at all. seriously, why did that do that? it should have been a cover that "clicks gently" but no.
- also you can only put 1 case fan in this case. (excluding the 2 fans that you can put in the front of the case in front of the 3.5' bay, but theres no point, because where would the air come from if the front of the fan has no place to get the air from. you would just create a vortex of air just circulating warm air.

Other Thoughts: pretty well built case and design, just a few small details just have to be fixed, or you could just DIY those imperfections yourself.

5 out of 5 eggsHolyyyy Bananas!

Pros: This case is awesome! It looks so cool (like futuristic). Every time I look at this case I feel like I'm on Star Trek! My wife's been calling me Captain Kirk. Beam me up Scottie!

Cons: None, unless you like almond colored 1970's type cases.

Other Thoughts: Don't be stupid, just get this case. You will love it more than your significant other!

5 out of 5 eggsAPEX ATX Mid-Tower Case

Pros: The case has a medium size. It's manageable being carried to LAN parties, though takes up a fair amount of clearance. The case has 3 80mm fan slots; one comes with the case, the 80mm rear exhaust fan. Two fans will fit in the two intake slots on the front bottom of the case, the air comes from the bottom of the case. The heat duct fan is not 80mm, it's possibly a 70mm or lower. The case is spacious enough for comfort and healthy circulation. The heat duct is sufficiently aligned to the CPU processor which perfectly aligns to the rear exhaust (ASRock CrossFire motherboard.)

The case is stylish with a black frame and bezel, along with a dim blue LED line in the front which I use for the HDD LED. The two lights on the bottom are power LEDs. The door has lasted for more than 4 months from average usage. The construction is of high quality, and the toolless design is painless; though not technically toolless, it's convenient. The HDD tray on the bottom is good to cool the HDDs.

Cons: The HDD tray will decrease the front intake's ability to circulate cool air throughout the rest of the case.

Other Thoughts: The product is inexpensive and well worth the $50.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome case!

Pros: Looks great without being too expensive. There's enough space to put all the usual stuff inside it. It has cool blue lights too! The thumb screws make it easy to open. Sturdily constructed.

Cons: You have to push the front cover at just the right spot to get it to click open. A little frustrating at first, but not a problem once you've got it figured out.

Other Thoughts: The thin, long blue light on the front cover flickers when the hard drive is being accessed. It is supposed to do that, and I think it's pretty cool. However, I can imagine some people being annoyed by the constant flickering.

4 out of 5 eggsallright

Pros: Everything i had in my old Thermaltake Full Tower fit into this case. Which was, an ATX mobo, 1 cd drive 2 SATA hard drives 4 sticks of ram and a giant x1950. the 90 on the back is quiet enough, and the side air duct is only slightly off center of my CPU heatsink. Swinging front door is a neat little gadget and i like the giant power button. Both the lower HDD cage and the middle one are removable, which is nice when installing things.

Cons: a little tight inside, it might be that i'm used to full towers but i found some things a little awkward. the cables that connect your power button to mobo were a little short for my comfort, they fit tho. Also if you use the lower HDD rack the power cords, at least on a SATA, were nearly rubbing on those little pins on the mobo, that the on button connects to, that i was already paranoid about. I can't imagine a ribbon cable fitting there. Taking the front plate off to insert my CD drive was a scary experience, i unplugged my front USB, Audio and power wires before i tried, because of the tightness. the front vents for two 80mm, like stated before, vent to the floor, so if you have carpet forget about it.

Other Thoughts: after you get passed getting your stuff into the case, its a nice case . Maybe not the WOW, THAT THING MOVES AIR!!! kind of case that over clockers want, but a good looking average person case. BIG NOTE! the swinging front door doesn't PULL open, it CLICKS open, you have to push down on where it latches, and it unlatches and swings on springs. I spent about 5 minutes wondering why the darn thing was so hard to pull open until my knee pressed on it while i was installing my GPU and it swung open on me.

5 out of 5 eggsNice case

Pros: Fairly spacious, can remove the extra dive cage if you have cables long enough for the bottom drive racks. Bottom drive racks are right in front of two drive cages which allows them to be cooled.

Cons: I used a Blue Orb II CPU cooler and it only allows a little space between it and the power supply. Had to remove the PS to plug in the extra 4-pin power adapter and one case fan.

Other Thoughts: The above-mentioned cooler centers right on the side heat-duct (yes, heat duct, not fan like the picture had me expect) which is absolutely perfect - heat blows directly out instead of into the main airflow, which helps with 90mm rear fan.

5 out of 5 eggsBeatiful Mid Tower

Pros: Very Spacious, Ability to Have 2 front 80mm fans (which i've used, it sucks air in through the bottom so don't put it on the ground if you use the front fans). The 3.5 inch cage has a locking mechanism that lets you easily detach it from the 5.25 inch bays. 5.25 inch cage has a unique roll-and-lock drive system (Pull the black latch on the side up and put 4 round screws which are provided on the drive and then slide it back and pull the latch back down to lock in place). Ability to put your HDD's on the bottom cage or the 3.5 inch cage. Lots and lots of vents for air.

Cons: Aluminum but im kool with it, it's not flimsy. Have to take the front off to put in drives like DVD and CD along with screwing in the front fans. The front panel that moves up and over has to be pushed a little hard to unhook and go up and it goes up fast so watch your face if your over it. The Air Duct didn't line up with my processor fan but it still functions the same way so i'm still happy :) And the top led stripe that goes vertical will not light up on mine but Minor complaints but all the pros out way them.

Other Thoughts: Awesome case, I would definitely buy again. I used this to build a comp for my dad (A little putt putt computer that will use Word and Internet for business) but i spoiled him. Athlon 64 x2 (3800) with 2 gigs of A-Data Ram and its only Windows XP but i got a good deal on the ram that was better than buying just 1 gig.
