5 out of 5 eggsGreat case for the money

Pros: This is a great little case/PSU combo. Client wanted something smaller than mini-tower and this fit the bill.

Also, I was really disappointed in the CM Elite 361 (N82E16811119258) on a previous build and hoped for something quieter and better built. This APEX did not disappoint.

Cons: The optical drive needs to be installed from the front by removing the entire front covering. and the plastic lock rails that support it lock from the front.

I put this in the cons only because it would seem you can install it from inside out when you look at it. Not enough to deduct a point.

2 out of 5 eggsPSU has no 2x8 connector!

Pros: The price was pretty good. And the case itself is of fairly good construction. I wanted something small enough to keep in the living room as some sort of HTPC kind of thing. It fit my micro ATX motherboard very well, so no complaints there.

Cons: I would suggest getting a better PSU. It does not have a 2x8 12V connector. You could risk it, and make something using a spare molex connector, but I wouldn't. I should have read the specs more carefully. A 250W PSU is probably not going to be enough for you anywar. I would suggest buying the FSP450 PSU

After installing the bigger PSU I feel much more confident my server isn't going to spontaneously combust in the middle of the night.

The fan in the back of the case is insanely loud! It sounds like a jet engine on the back of the thing. And 60mm is kind of an odd size, so there's not a lot of options. I ordered a new fan after one week. I couldn't stand it anymore.

Other Thoughts: I should have bought a cheaper case without a power supply and bought a PSU separately. The power supply I ended up going with was the FSP Group 450W. I would suggest you heed my warning.

2 out of 5 eggsOptical Drive install problem

Pros: Nice small case with Power Supply, can be placed vertically or horizontally. PS fan very quiet. No tools required for HD install and case covers. Great price for a case w. PS.

Cons: Optical drive with plastic rack sliders do NOT 'clip' into the case. The rails do not extend out enough to secure the Optical drive. Very disappointing, may have to modify to secure the drive. Would've given a higher rating if not for the 'rail' issue.

Other Thoughts: I know less and less builds need optical drives but I needed it for this one.

1 out of 5 eggsTEST PSU 1st THING | PSU==DOA

Pros: Price: The APEX MJ-16 appears to be a decent case for the buck. It has ample room for storage devices and media. However, see comment below

Cons: I bought the case knowing that it is really more than I need for a router/firewall. I was a little leary of case/PSU combo at this price point due to potential quality. But the price was right. However, it is costing me more than the ~$50.00 I paid since I have to buy a new power supply. I am not willing to RMA the whole case which would require wasting another hour to take the MoBo, RAM, SSD, DVD-ROM, and Periph cables out and then wait for 2-way shipping. I already have 2 hours into installing devices, and testing why power wasn't getting to MoBo only to learn that the PSU was DOA.

Other Thoughts: Before you do ANYTHING, test to make sure the PSU is getting and sending power.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent little case

Pros: Cost, build quality

Cons: Included fans are noisy

Other Thoughts: The price/performance ratio is pretty good. It's certainly not top of the line, but the build quality was better than I expected for how much I paid. The fans can easily be replaced, of course.

4 out of 5 eggsNot bad overall

Pros: Despite reviews to contrary, it will hold 4 3.5" HDDs with any mATX MB that does not have right angled SATA connectors. I just did it. I number slots from 1 (side of case) to 4 (center) for explanation. If you install 92mm fan in front, duh-mies, well, that's where you have to put drives 3&4 to clear MB. Slot 1&2, no problem. Slot 3, remove front bezel, break out perforated panel (like you did for rear I/O, put drive in from front. Same for slot 4, but no panel to breakout; instead, a plastic piece to push out. Drives 3&4 stick out of the case front about an inch (they are not visible, hidden by the black bezel). The perforated panel you need to break out of drive 3 slot is what people are attaching the 92 mm fan to. There is still room for a 60 mm fan in front of slots 1&2. Do buy 3 60mm fans, 2 for rear and one for front. Get drive screws. Break off and throw (actually, hurl, with great vigor) away tool-less HDD mounting doodads, along with included fan. A land fill would be insulted to receive them. BTW, never use tool-less; screws help transfer heat from drive. I got a Cooler Master Vortex Plus heatsink in with about an inch to spare. PS has 2 SATAs, 4 Molex, 24 pin & 4 pin.

Cons: HDDs were still a you know what to install. Be careful when you remove the front cover. Reports of dead power switches are probably due to people jerking it off. The ribbon cable to connect to MB has a tendency to get hung up. and needs to be gentled out.

Cable management: yeah, do that. Let me know how it turns out.

Other Thoughts: Overall, a pretty good case. Most of the issues with it are common to all small cases. Hey, it's a small case, limited working room, etc. But if you TAKE YOUR TIME AND THINK, it goes together pretty easily. I'm running four HDDs, optical, a high end sound card, WIFI card, SATA card, and a 65W processor in it, temps are OK.

If you just need a basic case, couple of drives, then buy it.

But, if you CAN use a larger case (I couldn't), life's a lot easier. Or if you're a tech level 5 type, and can't figure out why - when you put a fan where the HDD should be - you are having issues, this isn't the case for you.

3 out of 5 eggsVery Loud

Pros: Small, Compact

Cons: Thin metal, cable management is horrible, does not have a block off plate for unused cd-rom bay. Fan is very loud, my mobo does not seem to be able to control speed, which I set on the lowest setting.

Other Thoughts: Out of the 4 I ordered, one of the case's power LED did not work. Too much of a hassle to send it back I guess I'll have to live with it.

3 out of 5 eggsmeh

Pros: price is right

Cons: I do not like the provided cd/dvd drive rails. the drive does not "snap" in but rather you have to push it against the front lid so that the button is snug. meaning that through it's life, it appears I will need to open it up and push it again back against the button.
