4 out of 5 eggsGreat case for a smaller build

Pros: -Price (obviously)
-Built in psu seems to be decent quality and has as many connectors as needed
-Cooling potential isn't great but for a low power home/office pc there is more than enough ventilation

Cons: -Fan in the back of the case is incredibly loud and any tweaking in my motherboard bios wasn't able to make it much quieter. I ended up removing it since it is basically unnecessary anyways.
-Odd mounting points for the motherboard, some have standoffs and some are just bubbled up parts of the backplate. No issues shorting though so can't really complain
-There is no space for cable management behind the motherboard so be prepared for a mess of cables in the front of the case

5 out of 5 eggsSolid

Pros: Great size!! Its small but you can really pack the case full.
Perfect for everyday / office computers, and you can even tuck a video card in here for a LAN box or mini gaming rig.

just watch out for those longer cards, and the 250 watt PS

Cons: none

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.
